October 2012: Tips, eNews and More!


 
Autumn is the favourite season for many of us. The brisk morning air makes for a perfect walk before we head to work, while the colourful leaf displays seem a fair trade for the shorter days.

Thanksgiving (October 8th) and Halloween (October 31) are just around the corner. Halloween falls on a Wednesday, meaning that ghosts and goblins may be out early in the evening, so be careful as you head home from work or school. Whether you are hosting a get together, attending one, or are just looking for a treat, we've included a recipe that uses in-season local fruits and berries.

What's Your Plan?
Is your dental plan based on the calendar year? If so, your coverage maximums start over on January 1 and your unused benefits may not roll over into the new year. That means if you don't use them, you lose them! If we haven't seen your smile in a while, Click here to schedule an appointment in time to benefit from your Plan.

Here are some suggestions to help you cope with the temptation of Halloween candy in the house.

Wild Blueberry Tart

 
While the hot dry summer reduced the pick your own apple crops, Autumn blueberry and strawberries are still available at many pick your own farms or can be found in abundance at your local grocery store. Picking your own food can be extremely satisfying and allows you to know exactly how fresh the foods you are feeding your family are.

If you can't make it out to the farm for this recipe, we suggest looking for berries that were grown locally in Ontario. This not only supports local farmers but will likely be closer to their harvest date and more flavourful.
