I’ve shared quite a bit about our family’s journey with health and wellness, with much of our experience centring around diet and more recently, fitness. With two members of the family having food sensitivities and an overall effort to make healthy lifestyle choices, it isn’t always easy and convenient, but we’ve seen the difference these efforts make. Some of the things we had to do cold- turkey (Ari going gluten and dairy free) and others we’ve added in over time (juicing regularly, more home- made meals and snacks, growing our own organic food, exercise), but in either case, learning about the options available to us and speaking to others who could share form experience helped inform many of our choices.
Later this month (March 26), one of my favourite events will be returning-Healthy Family Expo– and with it an amazing array of vendors whose goal it is to help attendees incorporate healthy choices into their lives. Whether you are looking to incorporate eco- friendly options into your home, want to try some new additions to the family menu (kale anyone?), or scout out some new fitness ideas, you won’t be disappointed with the variety of vendors the organizers line up. I’ve been to every HFE since it began and can’t say enough good things about the event; it’s also family- friendly, making it perfect for parents who bring the kids along (kids 15 and under get in free).
