Hosting a Canada Day celebration this weekend? As we celebrate 150 years of our beautiful Country, many of us will be gathering with friends and family for some fun, games, fireworks and of course food! If the weather is nice most of us will be sure to have a BBQ or fire in our backyards – please keep in mind that while some of our favorites to cook are delicious, they may be higher in fats, sugars and calories. To help balance these treats, try serving up some healthy festive Canada day foods. You can try some of these that I came across (or you can create your own Canada day dishes)….looks fun and something that we all can enjoy!
