| November 2014: Tips, eNews & More!
It's November! How did that happen? Every year seems to fly by and as soon as November begins, we start hearing holiday music on the radio. The days get shorter and
even though we're still (hopefully) at least a month away from snow, people begin to prepare for winter hibernation.
You should enjoy the month as best you can, and there are still plenty of good weather days to enjoy before the chill really starts. Here are just a few activities
going on around town to keep you busy:
Visit the Direct Energy Centre for an indoor installment of Woofstock, Toronto's celebration of all things dog.
The Santa Claus Parade
Santa Claus returns to the streets of Toronto, bringing a bit of early Christmas cheer with him.
- The Gourmet Food and Wine Expo
Visit the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to taste, buy and learn about wine, cheese and other gourmet foods.
- Harbourfront Centre's Day of the Dead Festival
"The Day of the Dead Festival celebrates the traditional Mexican acts of witnessing tradition, history, memory and the spiritual with music and dance, community
ofrendas, films and above all the spirit of the Mexican peoples.

Flossing is a proven means of cleaning plaque and food debris from hard to reach places where tooth brushes are far less effective. Flossing has also proven to promote healthy gums through increasing blood circulation that is integral to a beautiful smile.

Apple Berry Crisp
We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet many of us skip this meal or try to replace it with a prepackaged breakfast or power bar. While these bars offer a high level of convenience they also offer a high level of sugar and calories.
This month's recipe is full of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is low in sugar. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert or a midday snack. It will also stay for a few days if covered and refrigerated allowing you to make it on the weekend and enjoy it for the first few days of the work week.
