Event: Canadian Lentils Throw a Great Party!

(HealthCastle.com) HealthCastle's own Gloria Tsang and Canadian Lentils host a great party! 

The Dietitians of Canada Conference was June 13-16 in Victoria BC. The conference itself was well received and one of the best attended in years. But the highlight for many? The food parties! Dietitians sure do love to eat and Michelle was lucky enough to attend the Canadian lentils party on Friday night. It was a great way to while away the hours - eating and talking with a fabulous group of dietitians from across Canada.

All of the HealthCastle regional directors were there- Gloria Tsang of Vancouver, Kristyn Hall of Calgary and Doug Cook of Toronto as well as the new HealthCastle Richmond director Winnie Hung.

The true versatility of lentils was showcased in many of the dishes from lobster spinach salad with rich black lentils and lentil strawberry shortcake (Ah- Mazing by the way). 

Lentils are a great way to add folate, fibre and protein to your baking- perfect for a little (or not so little) picky eater in your house. Check out the shortcake recipe below and more great lentil recipes at the Canadian Lentils website. 

Teaser Alert! I also checked out Rebar Modern Food while in Victoria. They are known for a focus on fresh, whole foods and innovative ways to make healthy food tasty. I had a lovely lunch and picked up their famous cookbook. Watch out for my cookbook review and my take on a few of their recipes coming out soon on the HealthCastle Fraser Valley blog.
