For those who experience it, hair loss is an extremely emotional condition. You may feel worried or confused, but know that you are not alone. Male-pattern hair loss is relatively common, but women’s hair loss or thinning is also more common than you may think. While there are a few reasons for hair loss or thinning, including extreme stress, pregnancy, medications and illnesses, hereditary-specific hair loss happens in over 1 out of every 4 women1. The number of women with this type of loss increases with age, but it can start as early as in their twenties.

This time of year, grocery stores and drug stores are stocked with an abundance of sweet bunny-shaped treats that are loaded with refined sugars, artificial colours and flavours, preservatives, and hard-to-pronounce ingredients.
While it’s no secret that these chocolatey treats are full of sugar, sometimes it takes a quick reminder just to hammer home how much you’re consuming. A quick glance at the nutrition label of the Cadbury Creme Egg for example, shows that it contains 26 grams of sugar which is equivalent to about six teaspoons of sugar. Besides having no nutritional value, this amount of sugar will cause your blood sugar to spike then drop, leaving you sluggish and grumpy an hour or so after eating one.
While I’m not an advocate of restriction, it is possible to make healthier choices by making your own sweet treats. Need ideas for where to get started? Keep reading below for my 3 favourite healthy Easter desserts. Unlike grocery store chocolates, these treats are made with nutrient dense ingredients, plus they’re easy to make and really delicious. I know you’re going to love them!

As an average adult, we have approximately 21 square feet of skin, which weighs about 9 lbs and contains more than 11 miles of blood vessels(!). Our skin is an extremely important organ that protects us, regulates our internal/core temperature and fluid balance, and helps us to synthesize vitamin D. We really need it, and we need to take care of it...it’s just that the ‘how’ of taking care of it is sometimes what confuses us.
