Going for Healthy Living Gold – Get Inspired by the 2010 Winter Games

By Dr. David Butler-Jones MD, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada

With the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver just a matter of weeks away, many of us are already planning our television-viewing schedules to ensure we don’t miss any of our favourite events or athletes. Yet, while our athletes are striving to reach gold, the majority of Canadians are not active enough for good health. With obesity rates at an all-time high, the importance of daily physical activity and healthy eating cannot be stressed enough.

By Michael P. Clive

Recently I got a call from my friends at Clover Leaf and they had a big question: "Do you think you could re-invent fast food?" While pondering this question the other shoe dropped: "Can you do it using our tuna, salmon and flavoured tuna products, limit the number of ingredients to five, and get each recipe on the table in five minutes?" Interesting challenge, and I was certainly willing to give it a try, although I quickly realized they were asking for more than a new way to whip up a regular old tuna melt.
