August is a great time to visit the Whistler Squamish area, especially through August 19-21 as the 2015 GROW conference will be a veritable hotbed of tips and techtalks. If you get hungry on the road to such a great event (or to a beach... or a hike. Getting sidetracked is where the best road trip stories come from) remember to pack yourself some delicious travel snacks to keep you feeling alert, healthy and e...

It's an inescapable fact that technology has changed how we live and work.  With the rise of the machines (hehe) we are spending more time at our desks, focusing on our laptops, smartphones or tablets and supporting the flourishing tech industry right here in Vancouver. 

 

Interestingly, current research has shown that our capacity to process data is increasing, while at the same time, our ability...

We all know fruits are healthy, but do we know precisely why?

 

 

 Pears are a great source of one of life's little miracles...soluble fiber.  Turns out not all fiber is the same. Soluble fiber absorbs water, as well as excess cholesterol in the gut, which has a generally appreciated softening effect on the stool.  

A pear generally contains between 3-4 grams of soluble fiber, and research has shown that...

What do guinea pigs, greater short-nosed fruit bats, red vented bulbul songbirds and primates of the Anthropoidea suborder (including humans) have in common?

 

We have all been excluded from the awesome enzyme party.  L-gulonolactone oxidase enzyme to be precise. 

 

Why is this relevant enough to be in a blog post, you ask? Well, because us Snack Ninjas also moonlight as Nutrient Nerds, so get ready to get sch...

No evening is complete without a team photo! Even if we do all look like smurfs...

​On June 11, our snack ninjas descended on the top notch tech mixer at PaySavvy HQ...

 

After ghosting silently into the building with a ninja's trademark stealth and speed, the Natural Source 

 

team assembled the Ultimate Heathly Networking Snack Station!

 

 

The doors opened to a burgeoning crowd. The ninjas were then drawn into a web of revelry and banter from which there was no escape.  But then again...who would...

While we all know the usual steps...recycle, reuse, reduce. But when we hear over and over that there is a shortage of space, too much in the landfill, ocean pollution etc etc.  it can become overwhelming to find things that one person can do to help contribute to our city in a meaningful way, and makes it all too easy to just throw up your hands and ignore the whole mess. 

 

So lets start simple!...

Summer is here and the plants are blooming all around, bringing delicious smells and beautiful colors to grace our fair city.  But it's time we did more than just admire them from a distance.

 

There is an incredible variety of edible flowers that can be added to everyday foods for a bit of fun and color...and they are nutritious too!

“According to a new survey, a majority of workers (57%) admit to judging a coworker based on the cleanliness of their workspace and nearly half say they have been "appalled" by a dirty office.” Reports Forbes

 

Don’t be a Clutter Carl, get your office in ship shape w...
