  • Recently I went to see Rob Stewart’s new documentary, Sharkwater Extinction. If you haven’t seen it, or even heard of it, I strongly encourage you to do so. The documentary brings you along a journey to discover why so many sharks are killed every year to supply a billion dollar industry. Not only are they wanted for their fins, their oil is used in cosmetics, supplements and other medicinal products, and their meat is used for consumption. •
Did you know that after Asia, Canada is the second largest importer of shark fins? Although shark finning is illegal, the import and export of fins is not. Thankfully, action is being taken. Bill S-238, which is to ban the import and export of shark fins, recently passed Canada’s senate. There is hope for shark populations globally, thanks to activists like Rob Stewart. Sharks may not be your favourite animal, like they are mine, but we can all make a difference, and I encourage everyone to educate themselves on issues like this. “There is simply no issue more important. Conservation is the preservation of human life on earth, and that, above all else, is worth fighting for.” -Rob Stewart

  • Fill up on crackers without filling up the recycling bag! Anybody else loves snacks as much as I do? Sometimes snacking comes with a lot of guilt related to all the packaging waste that goes hand in hand with snacking. I’ve been working on cutting back on the packaged snacks! Here is a recipe for some delicious homemade crackers.
•
•
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (or seeds/nuts of choice)
½ - 1 tsp salt (to taste)
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp dried rosemary
¼ tsp baking soda
2 tbsp chia seeds (again, use your favorite, but having two varieties keeps them interesting)
¼ cup – ½ cup water
½ tsp olive oil

1.Preheat oven to 350°  F. In a bowl, add all dry ingredients. Stir to combine, then add ¼ cup water and all the oil. Stir with a spoon and add another ¼ cup water if not sticking together. Knead lightly with hands until dough is combined. Shape into a ball.
2.Place dough on lightly floured beeswax wrap, counter, or parchment paper. To get consistent shapes, form a rough rectangle shape before rolling out. Roll until dough is about 1/8 inch thick. Flip unto a lightly greased baking sheet and cut into desired shapes, spreading out slightly.
3.Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. If a crunchier cracker is desired, keep in the oven until darker, keeping a close eye not to burn. Allow to cool 10 minutes before  enjoying warm with your favorite topping or storing for a great on the go snack.
