5 Cool Things to Pick Up at Callingwood Farmers’ Market.

Callingwood farmers market

What to do in Edmonton? Check out a great Sunday Farmers’ Market!

If you’ve never been to Callingwood Farmers’ Market in Edmonton, you definitely need to check it out. For 35 years, this vibrant outdoor market has grown to be Edmonton’s largest Sunday market. Each week from May to October, it boasts 130-150 vendor tables set up from 10 am to 3 pm.

You can find everything from locally grown and sourced foods to woodwork, jewelry, clothing and décor. There are also tons of gluten-free and organic options to choose from. Live music showcasing local talent makes the atmosphere really fun too!

Callingwood Farmers’ Market is great place to go for the very young, very old and everyone in between. For those of you that may think a Farmers’ Market only sells produce, I’m here to tell you that’s not the case. You can find the most interesting and unique things at the market such as craft beer and local spirits, natural skincare products, home-made ethnic sauces and seasonings, eco-friendly baby items and the list goes on!

My trip to Callingwood Farmers’ Market.

I took a Sunday trip to the market to see what I could find, and I hit the jackpot! The day I visited was rainy (much like most of our summer days here in Edmonton this year), but it didn’t matter because most of the vendors were located in the covered courtyard area of The Marketplace at Callingwood – so I stayed dry and toasty. A live musical act on each end of the courtyard made the walk that much more enjoyable. I left the market with a couple of bag loads of goodies, but here are my top five favourite things that I brought home!

1. Cool Jewelry

Walking through the market, I stumbled across a vendor with the most beautiful rings and jewels – I introduced myself and asked to try on some of the items. I had a wonderful chat with Lydia, the owner of Artemis. Although there were so many beautiful pieces I was drawn to, I decided on a beautiful silver puzzle ring. Lydia gave me her contact information and said if I couldn’t get it back together to contact her or come back to the market. (I am too afraid to take it apart because I love it so much!)

2. A Children’s Book

It’s quite amazing who you see at the market! I was honoured to meet Edmonton based author, Lucy Sidor, who has to date written three children’s books and one book about her memoirs growing up in Alberta. The children’s book I purchased was entitled “The Spook-Aiders and Greedy Gus” to read with my daughter. Ms. Sidor personalized the book with a signature for my daughter – who was more than thrilled to receive such a special gift!

3. Sundried Tomato & Artichoke Pesto

My family are pesto lovers, so this delicious treat was a no brainer for me. Of course, I ended up using it on absolutely everything – I even put it in a salad…so delish! I also bought some chocolate chip cookies from the same vendor, Pasta By Caterina. Let’s just say my family was lucky at least 3 made it home. I’ll be back for more of everything!

Quick Pesto Recipe Tips:
Here are a few ideas for using delicious pesto:

  • Add some to a lasagne recipe for an out of this world taste;
  • Use it as a condiment on your meat or veggie burger;
  • Mix with some olive oil and spoon on to your pasta – sprinkle with fresh parmesan for a quick dinner;
  • Stir into a cheese scone recipe for an extra delish kick;
  • Add into a meatball or falafel recipe.

4. Extra Lean Sausage

My husband comes from a Ukrainian family and perogies and sausage are an absolute staple in our house. When he saw that it was “extra-lean” he was more than a bit skeptical. Let me tell you, later that evening, after we enjoyed it for dinner, he exclaimed: “This is better than any sausage I’ve had, and I would never have guessed it was lean!”

5. Farm Fresh Carrots and Other Garden Veggies

As a child, I remember my grandma had a huge garden. When eating carrots fresh out of the soil, there was a sweetness to them that could not be replicated from the ones we bought at the store. Something I make a habit of buying locally when I can are fruits and veggies, specifically carrots. I did a taste test when I got home and had my daughter guess which carrots were market fresh and which were store-bought. She remarked it was the easiest test she’d ever taken. They just seemed to look and feel more authentic than their store-bought counterparts. Needless to say, we ate very well that night! I also got some fresh kale and used it for kale chips and smoothies – delicious and healthy.

Go to the Farmers’ Market for fresh food and a fun experience!

I’m always in awe of just how reasonably priced foods and goods are at the Farmers’ Market. Likely, I would spend twice as much for the same items at a grocery store and they wouldn’t be nearly as fresh nor locally sourced. More than just the actual items, the experience of shopping at Callingwood Farmers’ Market is such a happy and engaging one. It’s a great place to bring the kids and family, or to spend some time on your own, perusing through the many vendors and enjoying the community!

What does student success look like in 2019?

The start of the year means high hopes for student success and achievement.

2019  has begun. Like most years, it is filled with high hopes and expectations for student success and achievement. It is a chance for renewal, because, no matter how much a student has struggled in the past, this is a new opportunity.  This is the year it will finally come together! As a parent, you know this will happen; you feel it in your heart. Sometimes it does…students acquire those organizational skills, set higher standards for themselves and stay motivated throughout the entire school year.

Why does student motivation stop?

Often though, that motivation begins to erode, and those organizational skills and standards begin to slide. Why is this? What happens? Where does the motivation go?  Let’s look to a true story for a clue.

Two Grade 5 classmates, Bobby and Steve, moved to a new school. Both were diligent students who got A’s in math. But soon after the school year began, it was obvious that these young men were behind in math – the standards at the new school were higher.

Bobby got angry and felt it was unfair that he had never been taught some of the skills he needed. Instead of quitting, he was motivated to try harder because of this injustice. He soon mastered the skills, caught up to his classmates, and was once again achieving his customary top grades.

Steve also thought it was unfair. However, he worried that he would not do well, that his classmates would think he was dumb and that his parents would be disappointed. His fear and lack of confidence robbed him of his motivation and he stopped trying. As a result, this former A student stayed behind the class and math became a problem for him. Two kids, both smart, both good math students, both apparently motivated to do well in math – what happened?

Kids must learn how to stay focused on a goal, despite negative feelings.

The only difference between these two young men was that one of them did not understand that he could act to reach his goals despite his feelings of fear, while the other simply ignored those feelings and forged ahead. This is one of the most common challenges students face: the challenge of holding on to their goals despite a flurry of negative feelings. Like most things in life, this is a skill that has to be learned.

This explains why a student who truly wants to do better in school, who wants higher marks and who starts in September determined to do all these things, suddenly seems to run out of gas and lose all that motivation. It can happen because of a careless or inadvertently negative remark made by a teacher (“Anyone who cares about his future would have studied and understood this unit!”) or a jeering taunt made by a fellow student (“You’re so dumb…”) or just an incorrect assumption made by the student (“I’m dumb. Everybody else in this whole class understands this math and I can’t get it at all.”).

That is how it begins. After the initial damage is done, our brain seems to work against us. It looks to verify the judgment suggested by the feeling and we tend to over-react and make wild assumptions about our inadequacies. The feelings that follow are usually negative (“Why bother to study, I’ll never get it anyway”, “School sucks. I can hardly wait until I get out”, “Who needs school anyway?”).   This becomes a repetitive, subconscious conversation we have with ourselves, which serves to reinforce our feelings of failure. Motivation disappears, but it doesn’t have to. Students who learn how to distinguish the difference between thoughts and feelings and who learn how to set goals and how to construct plans of action will be able to act despite their negative and draining feelings. Learning to feel and understand one’s feelings without acting on them is possible.

Tips for Parents of Students in Elementary and Junior High

Did you know? Grades 1, 4 and 9 are especially important points at which to measure educational success. Here is an overview of common problems, along with some tips to help your children get off to the right start.

Grade 1 is an exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming. It may be the first time that children are faced with scholastic performance expectations. They may also have a hard time learning how to focus and integrate information. At the same time, parents may have to cope with separation anxiety if their children do not feel confident and safe in their new environment.

Tips for Grade 1 Parents 

  1. Build your children’s self-esteem and confidence by encouraging them to take “safe risks” and they will tackle Grade 1 with more enthusiasm and less anxiety.
  2. Read with your children at home and schedule family trips to the  library. To positively introduce them to academic performance expectations and to help them master phonics, enroll them in a fun,                            interactive supplemental reading program.

Grade 4 is a huge adjustment year because students move from activity-oriented school experiences to independent study projects, tests, and stationary workspace. When children enter Grade 3, parents should look ahead and begin preparing their children for Grade 4. Specifically, parents must ensure that their children can read and write simple sentences; know their multiplication tables; and are capable of independent study, since it is assumed that they will know these skills when they enter Grade 4.

Tips for Grade 4 Parents

  1. Review your children’s work to ensure that they are reading well and are able to write simple sentences. Help them learn their multiplication tables. If they are having difficulty, seek expert help immediately.
  2.  Create a private, quiet workspace for your children and encourage them to keep it neat and orderly. Give them “pretend homework.”     Creative writing, art and science projects are fun, stimulating and require independent thought and discipline.

Grade 9 students must deal with brand new academic pressures and expectations that are compounded by the emotional and self-esteem crises of puberty. It is important that parents be supportive and involved in their children’s school and social lives. The volume of work increases dramatically in Grade 9. Students who have not learned effective time management and study skills may feel overwhelmed and lose their scholastic motivation. In turn, this will impact negatively on their high school performance in later years.

Tips for Grade 9 Parents 

  1. Keep a family activity calendar and encourage children to record homework and assignments in a study planner or notebook.
  2. Chronically messy rooms and notebooks are signs that children have not learned to set priorities and feel their lives are out of control.  Consider enrolling them in a Study Skills/Time Management program to rebuild their confidence, enhance their academic abilities and teach new skills and strategies. These skills will benefit them throughout high school, college, or university and into their adult careers.
  3. Review your children’s work to ensure their grammar and writing abilities are adequate. By Grade 8, students should be able to structure complex thoughts into well-organized stories and essays.
  4.  Encourage critical thinking by asking your children to discuss and critique books, movies, and music.

Immune Support Recipe from Natural Terrain Naturopathic Clinic

Boost Your Health with Garlic Soup!

We all know what time of year it is! Sniffling, sneezing, coughing, complaining and the general need to hibernate. Boost your immunity and kick your cold or flu to the curb! Have you ever tried Garlic Soup? Here is a great Garlic Soup recipe recommended by Dr. Chris Bjorndal from Natural Terrain Naturopathic Clinic Edmonton.

Garlic Soup Recipe 

Serves 4

  • 26 garlic cloves (unpeeled)
  • 
2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) organic butter (grass fed)
  • 
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 
1/2 cup fresh ginger
  • 2 1/4 cups sliced onions
  • 
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 26 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 
1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 1/2 cups organic vegetable broth
  • 
4 lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 350F. Place 26 garlic cloves in small glass baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and toss to coat. Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake until garlic is golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic between fingertips to release cloves. Transfer cloves to small bowl.

Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, thyme, ginger and cayenne powder and cook until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes. Then, roasted garlic and 26 raw garlic cloves and cook 3 minutes. Add vegetable broth; cover and simmer until garlic is very tender, about 20 minutes. Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan; add coconut milk and bring to simmer. Season with sea salt and pepper for flavour.

Squeeze juice of 1 lemon wedge into each bowl and serve.

Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
