Canada and the U.S., part 1 of 2

PLASTICS: which ones to avoid, and why!

Today’s topic: NUTRITION DURING PREGNANCY. Remember, what you’re eating when you’re pregnant is also contributing to healthy blood, bones, tissues, and organs—or not. It’s so painful for me to remember back to eating 7-11 nachos, Diet Coke, a Special Burger and fries (extra fry sauce!) at lunch, and Ben & Jerry’s after dinner, throughout my […]
