May 2015 Newsletter   
 
According to the almanac, the summer solstice begins on June 21st, but Canadians know summer really kicks off with the Victoria Day long weekend!

Warm weather means more opportunities for outdoor activities, but don't forget to stay safe when spending time outside. The Canada Safety Council educates the public about potential health concerns during Summer Safety Week (May 1-7).

Take a look at some of their tips to help you and your loved ones stay safe in the heat.

Reminder:

Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 10th and Monday, May 18th is Victoria Day. Both are great opportunities to get together with family and friends to enjoy the nice weather.

Wishing you countless reasons to smile,

    
    


 
Preventing Periodontal Disease Healthy Poutine!

Okay, okay, maybe not healthy poutine, but much healthier poutine! Originating in Quebec, poutine is made of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy. A few alterations of the main ingredients can improve the nutritional value in poutine without altering its delicious taste.

The nice thing about this recipe is its flexibility. Use your favourite potatoes or, instead of using cheese curds, substitute with partly skimmed mozzarella cheese or even fat-free cottage cheese.
