What's Your Favourite Canadian Super Food? A CropSphere Preview with Mairlyn Smith


We’re staring down the barrel of the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions — you know, where you swear off treats, chocolate, booze and anything else fun hoping to whittle a few pounds off the midsection. Of course, if you’re like most people, you probably did the exact same thing last year, to no avail.

The reasons resolutions don’t work are many, and Mairlyn Smith, a professional home economist and cookbook author, is here to help — not with resolutions, but with improving you and your family’s health through choosing nutrient-packed foods you likely grow on your farm.
