+ I take my vitamins each morning. We are a healthy-eating family but a little help with vitamin intake never hurts.
Probiotics are always a good idea. Did you know that 80% of ailments are due to imbalanced gut bacteria? Our bodies contain billions of bacterial cells (good) with the majority of them concentrated in our gut so why not give these guys a bit of a boost through probiotics?
With winter dominating half of the year up here in Canada, the sun rarely makes its appearance so I supplement with vitamin D drops. These drops are tasteless, fast (you only need one drop a day) and lasts forever.
+ Kayla also takes a dose of vitamins every morning. There was a time last year when we slacked on this and she was getting sick more often...then I remembered when I gave her these three things on a regular basis back in the day when she started grade 1, she didn't get sick as often and if she did, it didn't last long.
I have to say, although I'm sure these don't taste too good (ok, I'm 100% sure these don't taste good), Kayla knows it's good for her and eats it without a fuss.

+ My inlaws gave Kayla these tiny jars of Nutella that they got from some relatives in Italy. How cute are they?!
+ Blanket scarf in the making. I love this yarn - it's so cozy, warm and soft.
+ Our Prime Minister went to the white house this week and I laughed my ass off at all the hilarious tweets:
+ Saw Edge of Seventeen....not bad. I don't remember being that angsty at that age.
+ I'm always on the hunt for the perfect crispy potato wedge recipe and I've found it! The trick: soak wedges in ice water for 30mins and then add tapicoa or corn startch to the mix.
+ this article that reiterates why you should start training in Muay Thai now!
