Peggy Kotsopoulos on “Must Have Been Something I Ate” at I Love Heath store in Vancouver

May 30, 2011 2 comments

Tonight at I Love Health store we got to hear from a foremost authority on health and nutrition  Peggy Kotsopoulos as she described the benefits of Vitamin B12, Iron, and many other nutrients in our diets.

Peggy was able to make for us what she called a Vegatini (a smoothie chock full of nutritional ingredients) and a delicious chocolate mousse (with a pumpkin base).

All very healthy and entirely vegan (no animal byproducts).

Approximately 20 of us were on hand to hear her speech and were rewarded with a taste of some of the delicious things she made.  She described the benefits of eating food rich in Tyrosine and Chlorella , as well as describing the powerful sunflower sprouts!

All in all an excellent experience and very encouraging for anyone hoping to lose weight, eat healthy, and restore some energy naturally into their lives.

Canadian Tire Stores in Vancouver celebrate JUMPSTART DAY to help local kids get into the game

May 28, 2011 Leave a comment

On May 28, the Third Annual Jumpstart Day will take place at Canadian Tire stores in Vancouver.  During this one-day fundraising event, every $1 donated by customers will be tripled by Canadian Tire Corporation.  All money raised will be donated to Jumpstart, helping Canadian kids get involved in organized sport.

One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in organised sports. In fact, a survey of Canadians conducted on behalf of Jumpstart found that 70 per cent of families saw cost as the number one barrier to participation in sport, yet most parents (94 per cent) believe that participation in sports increases a child’s chance for future success.   Canadian Tire Jumpstart helps bridge that gap so that kids can get off the sidelines and into the game.

The city of Vancouver proclaimed May 28, 2011 as Jumpstart Day to give kids a sporting chance. Please let me know if you would like to schedule an interview with a local family that has benefited from Jumpstart.

Canadian Tire invites the Vancouver community to get involved and make a difference in the lives of local kids.
