Nutritious recipe ideas to fuel at-home working and learning

As remote work and school continue for many families across Canada, we’re all looking for quick and easy ways to fuel up that won’t break our focus. But with the snack cupboard just steps away, it’s easy to skip healthier meals that can take longer to cook in favour of less nourishing ready-made foods.  

If you’re looking for something simple yet nutritious and delicious, why not upgrade to better-for-you versions of everyday staples?  

Enjoy carbs you can feel good about by choosing naturally fermented bread, like from Stonemill Bakehouse. The bakery ferments their dough for up to 12 hours for a more flavourful, wholesome bread. Containing no artificial preservatives, flavours or colours and non-GMO, this bread is a great choice. You can try it yourself at home with this delicious ricotta toast recipe, courtesy of Abbey Sharp, culinary expert and registered dietitian.
