OHEA Welcomes New November Members
I have also been involved in several writing projects developing resources for teachers, reviewing Family Studies textbooks and writing on-line courses. I have taught various courses in Family Studies but my area of focus is Nutrition and Health. I have a passion for cooking and travel and share this with my students in the classroom every day!
I have always felt close to the Home Economics field as cooking/ baking with my mother and grandmother is what initially sparked my interest in food and nutrition (I was probably stirring cake batter before I could walk haha). Looking forward to interacting with all of you!
I am passionate about promoting food literacy in children, family research, and family policy in Canada. I look forward to a future with the Ontario Home Economics Association, and getting to know other members!
I've done lots of volunteer work with various organizations, including teaching elementary school lessons about nutrition and healthy eating and assisting with children’s gardens and group cooking classes in the community. I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes in my spare time.
In addition, I love to sing and have been a member of the Amabile Choirs of London Canada for 13 years, and have traveled to compete in Newfoundland, Hawaii, Greece, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Austria with the Choir.
I am really enjoying the Foods and Nutrition Program at Brescia, and my goal for the future is to acquire an internship and pursue the Registered Dietitian designation as well as the Professional Home Economist designation.
Regardless if I become an RD or not, I plan to work within the food service sector because food is my passion! I am excited to join OHEA to meet other members who may share the same passion as me and hope to collaborate on exciting programs/initiatives one day!
Banana Cranberry Muffins
By: Tamara Saslove, P.H.Ec.
This recipe is so easy and tastes great! It can be made into a loaf or 12 muffins, or if you're like me and can't decide make a mini loaf and 6 muffins! I chose to mix in cranberries and top with pumpkin seeds but feel free to throw in whatever fruit, seeds or nuts you have lying around the house. Enjoy!
