Jump into the New Year with DK Canada

The New Year. It is about wanting to jump into a new way of being to get a fresh start in our lives. This can be done in so many different ways. Learning how to make certain parts of our lives better is what DK Canada loves to share with their books. They asked my family if some of their titles would help us jump into the New Year in fun and inspiring ways.

Here are the three books we received to jump into the New Year from DK Canada:

A healthy start to the day

Eating healthier is a goal that many of us promise to ourselves at New Years. One way to get a jump on this resolution is by getting a healthy start to your day. We love drinking smoothies at home to get some nutrients into a fun and easy drink. Healthy, Quick & Easy Smoothies provides readers with 100 recipes to blend and sip on.

What is great about this book is that each smoothie is under 300 calories, has no more than five ingredients, and. Takes less than ten minutes to whip up and enjoy. Nutritional information for each recipe is also provided so users can make informed decisions about which smoothies to try. Modifications can also be made to replace certain ingredients without changing too many of its nutritional values.

From all of the smoothies available to try in this book, I would love to make the Strawberries and Vanilla with Lavender recipe. It would be great to sip on after my fitness routine. The strawberries would give my body a bit of a recharge. The addition of the lavender would help to ease my mind to transition into another part of my day.

Healthy and quick meals for your family

If your family is like mine, there are many days during the week where a healthy and quick meal is needed to thoroughly satisfy grumbly tummies. Instant Pots have become a widely popular solution for this problem. Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook is a great way to have a variety of recipes at hand to put together healthy dishes in a short amount of time.

I was surprised at the different types of dishes that can be made in an Instant Pot. One of the recipes that caught my eye in this book is the Peach French Toast Casserole. It is a sweet elevation on a favourite breakfast dish. Seeing how it turned out in the book surprised me. I also like that this dish can be prepped the night before. This would make a hard to get up and go morning easier and tastier to jump into.

Girl power in all shapes and sizes

Captain Marvel. Jubilee. Gamora. These are some of the Marvel superheroes I grew up with when I was a kid. Now that I am a mom, I am passing my love for these women to my kids. Fearless and Fantastic: Female Super Heroes Save the World features many of the women and girls that make up this comic book universe for kids to jump into and to learn more about them!

Not only does this title give readers a very brief back story about each of the female characters in the Marvel universe, it also categorizes these characters into different sections based on the traits they use to battle evil. From intelligence and strength to kindness and courage, these ladies help to inspire kids to be their best.

One character my kids enjoyed learning about in this book is Storm. They were surprised to find out about her upbringing, her relationship with Black Panther, and her eventual leadership role with the X-Men. She is also such a powerful character. She is a family favourite!
