O Canada! This year we celebrate our home and native land’s sesquicentennial. One hundred and fifty years is certainly a cause for celebration. Far too often as Canadians, we tend to shy away from the limelight. More than ever, this is the time to give ourselves a pat, or two, on the back eh? Canada’s 150th anniversary is the perfect opportunity to shine the spotlight on the businesses that call the True North, home. The following are just a few who proudly show-off their Canadian pride. Be sure to visit their booths at the 2017 National Home Show.
With the use of ancient techniques, ShaSha Co. is an artisan bakery that produces a variety of breads and other products that are nutritious, organic and made with all natural ingredients. The main ingredients are even sourced locally.
Shasha Shaun Navazesh, founder and CEO, combined his background in microbiology with his love of baking and started the company back in 1998 in Ontario. It has grown by leaps and bounds. Today ShaSha Co. is the only bakery in Canada that has received a grant from the National Council of Canada.
The Original Ginger Snaps are my pick…they are low in fat and sugar and high on taste! They are also chalk full of fibre and are nut free which means—they are a great go-to snack anytime.
Natural Skin Care:
It doesn’t matter where we are throughout this land that is glorious and free, the ever changing weather is something we all have in common. Mother Nature can certainly wreak havoc on our skin. Crate 61 Organics offers a number of products that can help soothe dry and cracked skin and even the soul with their natural scents.
