Maddy’s Meringue with Berries
Summer is a time for celebration, but it also happens to be my heaviest competition season.

5 Reasons to Pack Eggs on your Camping Trip
We’re looking forward to spending time camping in Canada’s great outdoors. Here are 5 reasons why you should take eggs on your camping trip this summer.
Summer Snacking Packed with Protein
My dietitian told me that it's important to enjoy protein after activity in order to make up for any muscle breakdown. So, I prepare snacks that contain eggs, Greek yogurt, cheese, peanut butter or other protein-rich foods that my family enjoys. We either pair the protein snack with a glass of water or we include fluid right in the snack - such as when we make nutritious homemade ice pops or smoothies.
Walking Daily is Good for Your Health
Physical activity guidelines for Canadian adults suggest that we should get at least two and a half hours (150 minutes) of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity each week. But it doesn’t need to be all at once – the exercise can be split up into sessions of 10 minutes or more throughout the week. Examples of aerobic activity include brisk walking, bike riding, skating or playing sports such as hockey, pickleball and basketball.
Burnbrae Farms and Swim Drink Fish - partnership to support clean water
Burnbrae Farms is pleased to partner with Swim Drink Fish to strengthen the movement for clean water in Canada. As Canada’s largest family owned and operated egg business founded in 1891, our egg cartons will proudly feature information for Canadians to contribute to a swimmable, drinkable, fishable future. These specially marked egg cartons will be on store shelves across Canada this summer and will feature a QR code that you can scan to download The Swim Guide App, which allows you to check the current water quality conditions at over 8,000 beaches, lakes, rivers, and swimming holes across Canada. And with every purchase of a specially marked Swim Drink Fish carton this summer, Burnbrae Farms will donate $0.50 (up to $25,000) to Swim Drink Fish to support clean water initiatives.
Maddy’s Egg Salad Sandwich
I love an egg salad sandwich, always have! It is an easy option to take on the go for a filling lunch. You can make it in a big batch and eat it throughout the week, and beyond all of that, it’s just tasty. I love bringing an egg salad sandwich to practice when I have a run followed by a weight workout! It fills me up without making me too full to complete my second session.
Maddy’s Egg-cellent Fried Rice
This month we’re making fried rice, a staple in my diet! This is something I eat for lunch before an afternoon workout. It’s a great option because it’s got a perfect mix of carbs, protein and veggies to keep me full through a workout – and it’s also just tasty! This time around I used broccoli and green onions, but you can really use any veggies you’ve got on hand: peppers, mushrooms, carrots, cabbage - they all work! Really the things you need are garlic, ginger, soya sauce, rice and eggs.
