Those who train in running will know what it is: the famous marathon of Montreal. Normally, at this time of the season, the distance you have selected should seem workable and training not only started but progress should be noticeable. Whether you are registered at a distance of 5 km, 10 km, half marathon or marathon, you want your event to be held in the best possible conditions. Here are my nutritional tips to prepare for it.
In time for summer, stay hydrated for a healthy weight
Heat wave in sight! Terrace, pool and 5 @ 7 are at the rendezvous.
Staying hydrated is part of healthy daily habits. When the degrees rise on the thermometer, the need is all the more felt. And let's face it, with the beautiful season, the desire and the opportunities to sip a little something are more frequent.
Conscious-intuitive feeding is a concept that moves away from the idea of dietary restriction, in other words diet (which often leads to weight gain) and from good or bad foods.
Despite all the efforts to maintain weight or lose weight, are you a part of the 60% of the population of Quebec that is overweight? You are not alone, and this statistic continues to grow.

See for yourself :
Meat substitutes are becoming more and more popular. Contrary to popular belief, these are products that are not exclusively made for the neighbor or the vegan cousin! They are delicious products, as well as being good for your health. Tofu is not the only representative of this category, there is also tempeh!
In the future, could we really trade our steak for insects? It’s a whimsical subject, but it doesn’t sound very appetizing!
At first glance, ‘’Eating insects’’ or entomophagy seems strange for us Quebecers-North-Americans-member-of-the-industrialized-world. It’s normal, insects are not part of our eating habits... unless they make their way in our plate inadvertently ;).
However, in Asia and Africa, a variety of insects are consumed on a regular basis and that by a large number of people (2 millions) !
It’s summer time YAY! We’re so lucky to have such a warm summer, but it seems like we always feel like eating refreshing food and we sometimes lack inspiration. Here’s our TOP 10 recipes for hot days #everydayofsummer!
