Oxygen Yoga Willoughby Anniversary Specials

We can’t believe that it’s only been a year since Oxygen Yoga & Fitness Willoughby opened their doors. That’s probably because they became a part of our community a long time before their official opening.

There are some awesome specials for you to take advantage of as a thank you, and some upcoming events to register for as well.

Oxygen Willoughby’s Anniversary Sale is available until May 15.

Let’s help feed our neighbours

Food Bank

Spring is finally in the air!! As we all look forward to wearing less layers of clothing, we can also look forward to gardening plans and summer plans. For many of us, we are very fortunate in the sense that we go to the grocery store to pick up fresh produce and weekly staples as needed to make our weekly meals. This is not always the case for all Canadians.

According to Food Banks Canada’s HungerCount 2018 report, there were 1.1 million visits to food banks in March 2018 and overall, 35 per cent of those who visited the food bank last year were children.

During the winter, donations to the local food bank peak around the holiday season, but they are often at their lowest in the spring and summer months. This spring, as we gather around our dinner tables to eat together with our family and friends, let’s think of our neighbours and share what we can with others.

When grocery shopping, pick up an extra can of PC Blue Menu no salt added beans or vegetables to add to the donation bin at the front of your local store. You could also consider picking up a bag of dried fruit or dried fruit bars. Canned fruit and apple sauce can always be a good option as well, just be sure to look for no sugar added options. When looking at other non-perishable items, consider whole grain cereals that have less than 8 grams of sugar per serving and have more than 4 grams of fibre per serving.

While non-perishable food items are always put to good use, monetary donations are also very useful to local area food banks, as it allows them the flexibility to purchase fresh grocery items such as in-season, local produce, as well as dairy products, meat, and bread.

How a Registered Dietitian Can Help You Unlock the Potential of Food

Do you ever feel lost in the aisles of a grocery store and wish someone were around to help you read labels?

Struggle to make meals that the whole family will enjoy without spending all evening cooking?

Registered Dietitians are health care professionals passionate about sharing their evidenced-based nutrition knowledge with the public. They go beyond diet fads and rely on science to give hands-on dietary advice. With so much nutrition information circulating on different platforms, it can be difficult to know what to believe. Let us help you separate fact from fiction and incorporate research-based recommendations into their day-to-day routines.

When you book a consultation, your local in-store dietitian will help you to develop and personalize your nutritional goals, based on your medical history and lifestyle. Based on your goals, they will guide you toward realistic and life-long habits that allow you to feel your best.

As real people with busy schedules, they understand that eating well can feel like a daunting task. Whether at a sit-down consultation or on a personalized shopping tour, your in-store dietitian wants to help you see food as a part of your life that is inspiring and joy-filled, not burdensome. Nutrition Month is a perfect opportunity to get help choosing snacks that keep you well-fueled throughout the day, plan balanced meals that you look forward to and find ways to include your whole family in the kitchen.

Food has the power to heal us, bring us together, keep us energized and let us explore. Join us in celebrating Dietitians Day on March 20th by getting to know the Registered Dietitian at your local Independent Grocer. Schedule your first appointment by visiting www.loblaws.ca/dietitians.
