I have been receiving lots of inquiries regarding a 2019 In Season Agenda so I thought I should quickly announce that YES it will be available again this year! Please keep checking this post for updates, and keep your eye out for the agenda in stores in the beginning of December. You will also be able to place an order online here.

Like other years, the In Season Agenda is the perfect companion for living slow: eating local, growing your own food and savouring all the joys that each season brings. But what’s new is that it now covers the growing and what’s in season info for the entire province of British Columbia!

The summer markets begin this weekend!

2017-CAD- Fe Laan by Josh Asselstine - 72-lo resThis is most definitely one of my favourite times of year…the summer farmers market near my home opens this weekend. While I adore the winter market that is located just down the hill from where I live (especially for picking up special gifts for the holiday season!), the summer ones have a very special energy. They’re bursting with people, farmers and a variety of produce – and the sun always seems to be shining. Even the fruits and veggies seem more chipper!

Sunday night supper: Kookoo Sabzi

Natasha Asselstine Nutrition | Kookoo Sabzi

For the past year, I’ve got into the habit of preparing specific meals on specific days of the week. I find it helps me stay organized, requires less thinking on the spot, and keeps my favourite meals on constant rotation.

On Mondays, I make a big pot of our favourite lentil stew (a version of this) so it’s something I can easily warm up from the fridge in a pinch. On Saturdays, we often pull out a recipe book and make something new.

Since Spring, I’ve been making kookoo sabzi (like a Persian-style frittata) every Sunday night. It’s the perfect light and delicious meal that’s super simple to make, so there isn’t much fussing during the last few hours we have left of the weekend.

My article in Edible Magazine

edible-magazine-website-feature-triptychThis past Spring/Summer I had the great pleasure of writing for Edible Magazine and getting to know Rocky Point Ice Cream. Edible Magazine is by far my favourite magazine, and I fell in love with Rocky Point Ice Cream years ago after I stumbled upon their parlour and tasted the most delicious ice cream that I’d ever had (seriously). Every visit there, with their ice cream truck Scooper parked outside, felt like a return to childhood. And that nostalgia inspired me to write the article.

Super ironic, I know, that my first credit as a Nutritionist is writing about of all things ice cream! But I couldn’t help it :[
