Healthy Homemade Popsicle Recipe

By |August 11th, 2017|Recipes|

With this heat wave in Vancouver this summer, I have to admit I have been craving something cold to snack on. It’s easy to find yourself in the grocery store and pick up something prepared, however I was surprised to see the sugar content in some frozen treats- many had a minimum of 20 grams of sugar which is the equivalent to 5 teaspoons of sugar!!

So it got me thinking….I whipped up this recipe one […]

Brio Heritage Blog: Laura’s Trip to Newfoundland

By |August 3rd, 2017|Brio News|


I grew up in a full house that makes us look like we belonged in the “Full House” with Danny Tanner: I’m the oldest of 4 girls and my younger sisters are triplets. Things were chaotic, to say the least! Luckily though, we had awesome parents and grandparents who fostered the Atlantic Canadian hospitality and lifestyle in us and we consider ourselves “Newfies at heart”.

My dad was born in Nova Scotia but his parents are […]

By |June 23rd, 2017|Brio News|

Matylda was born on April 11th, 2017. When people ask how the birth was, we say with laugh that it was anything but natural even though that was initial the plan. It’s funny how things go that we plan so carefully and it might change, right?

The whole pregnancy was very enjoyable with no major problems. We think that because she was taking good amounts of vitamins, good sleep, as least near the end. We thought […]

Brio Heritage Series: Dr. Carin

By |June 16th, 2017|Brio News|

I’ve been told that I seem like a contradiction: I’m passionate about health and nutrition yet I’m the resident chocolate monster, happy to celebrate an occasion with a decadent dessert. I don’t shy away from manually-intensive projects but I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been on a treadmill. To me, health is much more than the sum of conventionally-accepted ‘healthy activities’; connecting with people over delicious foods, taking time to […]
