For seventeen to eighteen years of our life, we are living with our families where the cooking, cleaning and laundry is done by most parents. Sometimes we have one or two chores that our parents give us to complete. Fast forward to university where students are suddenly responsible for EVERYTHING. This means they are responsible for cooking, cleaning and doing laundry all while balancing school work, extracurricular activities and social lives. I’m not going to sugar-coat it. Adjusting to living away from home and balancing these responsibilities can be a hard transition and is one of the reasons why many students consume processed foods or eat fast food. These foods are convenient and budget-friendly. However, what majority of students do not realize is that there are meals or snacks that can be made quickly and are good for you. Today, I’m going to share a fruit, yogurt and granola parfait recipe that is super easy to make and that can be consumed on the go.

Some of the best conversations happen around the table. There’s something truly special about sharing food together and slowing down to enjoy one another’s company. Brunch is the perfect excuse to get together over food and weekends are simply made for slowing down. Therefore, brunching and weekends are the perfect combo!
Brunch menus seem to vary greatly, so this month, we’ve been asking our #CanolaConnect community:
At OHEA's 39th annual conference this past March, all conference attendees went home with a copy of OHEA's cookbook Homegrown!

So it's Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday or better yet Pancake Tuesday and in keeping with the day I made a couple batches of pancakes. You could go out and pick a box of Aunt Jemima up at the store but pancakes are so simple to make from scratch. Here is my favourite pancake recipe I learned in kindergarten class and has been my go to recipe ever since.

"When I was growing up in Trinidad, my Mom served a lentil stew as a side dish that was a family favourite. I had no idea then how versatile and nutritious lentils were or that they grew in Canada. Now I have my own signature lentil dish that I prepare quite regularly in the early fall; it's especially great at barbeques."-Rosemarie
