January is a busy month for a lot of us as we try to get back to real life after the holidays. So I’ve rounded up all my January posts in case you’ve missed any this past month!

I kicked off the new month and new year with this Kale Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Toasted Almonds, and Parmesan. With so many great flavours in it, this recipe might make all you kale haters think again!
I’ve been on a huge omelette kick these past few months, so I shared one of my favourite versions: this Shallot and Gruyere Omelette.
I make My Favourite Everyday Banana Oatmeal for breakfast almost every day (hence the name of the recipe). It covers pretty much all of my meal essentials: it’s fast, it’s easy, it’s healthy, and it’s delicious.
This Broccoli with Cheese Sauce and Toasted Pine Nuts is a jazzed up version of a childhood favourite. It’s kid (and picky boyfriend) approved!

Shortly after the new year started, I had Andrea D’Ambrosio from Dietetic Directions guest post about tips to overcome “all or nothing” mental sabotage. This is a great post to come back to if you’re currently working on any goals.
For Christmas JZ got me a hands on cooking class at Dish Cooking Studio in Toronto. It was such a fun night of food, wine, and good conversation!
For all you ice cream lovers out there who opt for fro yo as a healthier treat, read this post about why fro yo isn’t healthier than ice cream (sorry to burst your bubbles!).
Towards the end of the month I went to the launch of Taste of Burlington and got to try samples from all the participating restaurants. I can’t wait to go try out some of their prix fixe menus next month!
Previous to now, I’d been using my old blogger account to read blogs. But I finally bit the bullet and signed up for Bloglovin, which I love already. Except for the fact that I’ve added like 20 blogs on top of the ones I was already reading, so it’s turning into a major time suck – ha!

I was shocked one morning to wake up and find out that my blog made its first appearance on Huffington Post in this round up of omelette recipes! I don’t know how they found my recipe, but I’m so flattered it was included!
This month I also joined Mode Media – hence the new ad and logo on my sidebar. This partnership may give me the opportunity to do more sponsored posts in the future, which is something I’m nervous about. I’d like to make more of an income from this blog, but at the same time I want to keep providing content that is true to me. I think if I keep sponsored posts to a minimum and only partner with brands that are a natural fit for my blog, it won’t be disruptive to my content, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

I had to make a tough job related decision this month, but it taught me a lot about the importance of finding a good professional fit. Ultimately my values as a dietitian is what’s important to me.
I started reading this fantastic book by Timothy Caulfield. If you want an informative, no BS read about fitness, diet, and health, I highly recommend it!
