Typically, muffins get a bad rep for being a high-cal, high fat junk food snack that is disguised as the ‘lesser of the two evils’ compared to their donut cousin. There is however an über healthy alternative to the doughy treat – one that is actually good for you! Muthins has shaken up the snack industry by starting a healthy snack revolution, and they are produced right here in Montreal!
Muthins owner Ali Beloff started her business with a traditional family recipe in mind, and has since created a gluten-free line to compliment the existing all-natural, preservative-free brand.

Muthins can be purchased at several metro locations and health food stores throughout Montreal. Get snacking!

Drinking is something that we all do over the holidays. Sometimes we take it a bit too far with the spiked eggnog, or pour too much Goldschläger into the mulled wine (hot wine bling, anyone?). Well, Puretea has got you covered! The rescue pack by Puretea includes teas to keep you going strong during the holidays. Eat, drink and be merry – just be sure to include Puretea in your stocking stuffer list.
Also seen above is their travel tea bottle, complete with bottom steeper and rubber grip. Be sure to follow instructions to avoid burning yourself, and always proceed with caution when dealing with boiling water (helicopter Nuda-Mom over here).
