Not A Temporary Weight Loss Solution | Zero Excuse Go

Losing weight can be a struggle with many especially if you have other health related issues. Many people are unable to lose the necessary weight needed to live a healthy and long life.

We recently introduced all our readers to a unique and the first of its kind in Canada called Zero Excuse Go.

Their weight loss program offers you daily support by a multidisciplinary team that uses very effective new technologies such as telemedicine and remote patient monitoring. This program helps you reach your target weight and helps you maintain it.

How Zero Excuse Go Works

The Zero Excuse Go telemonitoring and telemedicine program uses digital technology and secured high-definition videoconferencing to enable their healthcare professionals (nutritionist, psychologist, nurse and kinesiologist) to monitor on a daily basis your weight, your blood pressure, your blood sugar and your exercise (number of steps, number of minutes of exercise, number of calories burned, etc.).

The Zero Excuse Go program has personalized ongoing coaching allowing people to reach their target weight and to maintain it with their maintenance program. The maintenance program is one of the most important components of the program as it allows people to keep the weight off after the program.

This is the first and only Canadian service to use remote patient monitoring to help people lose weight.

Duration

Once you sign up, you are evaluated and one of the healthcare professionals will be in touch with you about what program would work for you and the duration of it. Programs can last anywhere from 4 to 12 months, according to your reality and your needs. Once the target weight is reached, you will be invited to participate in their maintenance program, thus ensuring that you will not regain in the long term the weight lost.

Cost

The Zero Excuse Go Program is a turnkey service that includes all the equipment provided as well as all the software, connectivity and consultations with their health professionals assigned to you.

The cost of the services varies depending on the duration of the program, the number of pounds to lose, your health condition (if you have diabetes, heart disease, etc.), your disabilities (arthritis), your age, etc.

An approximate cost of their services is given once you have completed the online questionnaire. The final price will be determined once the evaluation has been completed.

You can put an end to your participation to the weight loss program at any time and get a partial refund, if applicable.

Zero Excuse Go Services

Zero Excuse Go develops the program that is right for you and they take everything into account when they do such as your current health.

The specific services you can find at Zero Excuse Go are: Obesity and Diabetes; Obesity and High Blood Pressure; Obesity and High Cholesterol; Obesity and Heart Disease; Obesity and Arthritis; Obesity and Sleep Apnea; Obesity and Aesthetic; Obesity and Depression; Obesity and Eating Disorders; Obesity and Adolescence; and Obesity and Bariatric Surgery.

Not A Temporary Weight Loss Solution

The Zero Excuse Go works as it uses the technology needed to be easily accessible at all times and it is customized to each person’s needs. A person is not a number as they are a health team of professionals wanting each person to be healthy. Not only do they help you achieve your weight loss goal but they help you maintain it.

If you are looking to lose a substantial amount of weight (around 40-200 pounds), then check out the Zero Excuse Go Program. You may sign-up by clicking, here.

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

Lately we have been trying to make better eating choices and this meant eliminating some traditional dishes. We haven’t had cheese in a very long time and wanted to have it for a special dish. After some lengthy research and discussions with friends, we realized how zucchini can be used as a substitution for pasta! This was one of the food items that I have eliminated from my eating lifestyle so I thought why not try a Zucchini Lasagna!

I took my traditional Lasagna recipe and changed it a bit to accommodate the Zucchini and another veggie too! 😉

Zucchini Lasagna

INGREDIENTS

  • Ground Chicken (or Ground Turkey or Ground Beef)
  • 1 Onion
  • Half of a tomato
  • Olive Oil
  • 5 Zucchinis
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika
  • 4 Tablespoons of red wine

DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate your meat (which ever one you prefer to do. We love the ground turkey as it is much lighter) prior to cooking. I usually do this the night before to have the meat soak in the juices for more flavor.
    • Wash meat well.
    • Place meat in a bowl and add the following ingredients; salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, 4 teaspoons of red wine (the wine added is what sets this recipe apart from many). Measurements for the ingredients are based on what you normally use in your meat marinating.
    • Leave the meat covered and in the fridge for the next day cooking.
  • The following day you can start cutting up your onions and tomato.
  • Once the onions and tomato are cut, place them in a pan with some olive oil. On low heat cook the onion and tomato until the onions are a golden color. Then add your meat.
  • With ground meat you will need to keep breaking it apart and stirring it to ensure it gets cooked. Once the meat is cooked remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon to ensure that the olive oil is drained.
  • Place the ground meat in a bowl and mix some tomato sauce.
  • Next step is prepping the zucchini, chesses and veggies.

  • Then the layering begins. Start with some tomato sauce and spread to cover the bottom of the lasagna tray. Layer with zucchini slices, tomato sauce, ground meat, bell peppers and mozzarella cheese. Continue layering until all ingredients are used, reserve 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese for the top of the lasagna. *Tip: Use cheese on the first layer and the layer before the very top.

  • Bake in preheated oven for approx. 45 minutes (or until the cheese is melted to your liking). Remove from oven, and let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving. *Zucchini is a very moist vegetable and there may be a lot of juices after cooking it. Some recipes recommend to add more meat to soak up the juices but we didn’t as we loved it this way.

 

And there you have it, Zucchini lasagna! Give it a try and let me know what you think of it!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Momma Braga’s Chicken Vegetable Soup Recipe

Chicken Vegetable soup is always a favorite in my household, especially on a crisp day or even when one is under the weather.

If you are looking for a simple and hearty soup recipe then this may be the one for you.

INGREDIENTS

  • Water
  • Vegetables (Assorted)
  • Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • Knorr of Chicken
  • Onion
  • Pasta (we usually use the small alphabet pasta or elbow macaroni pasta)
  • Potatoes
  • Boiled Chicken Breast (marinated with salt, black pepper and garlic powder)

DIRECTIONS

  • First clean the chicken breast and marinate it with some salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Once completed, boil it first until it is fully cooked.
  • Once chicken breast is cooked, remove it from the water. Shred the chicken breast into pieces to add into the soup afterwards.
  • In a new pot, add water for the soup. It is always best to almost fill to the top as water does decrease when boiled. Add some salt, a dash of olive oil and knorr of chicken.
  • Clean the vegetables that you would like to add into the soup. We like using carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and onions. Add the vegetables into the pot of water.
  • We also peel potatoes and cut them into small pieces to add into the soup.
  • Once all ingredients are added, turn the heat onto medium.
  • Stir as necessary and once potatoes are almost fully cooked, add the pasta and shredded chicken. Take a quick taste to see if additional salt needs to be added.
  • Once pasta is cooked, the soup is ready.

That is it! A simple recipe that is hearty and delicious! This soup is a great side dish for a lunch sandwich. Enjoy!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll

We just love bringing new and exciting products to the attention of our readers especially when they have an impactful meaning. We were so intrigued when Dessi, the founder of Good For Kids connected with us to let us know about her Kickstarter Campaign which launches on May 8th, 2018.

Without further ado, we are delighted to introduce you all to The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll and Children’s picture book, Healthy Foods Are Fun To Eat. We got the first exclusive interview with Dessi and we are excited to share it!

  1. Tell me a little bit about yourself.

I am a big dreamer and a mom to two amazing girls. I am also the Founder of GOOD FOR KIDS, a socially responsible start-up dedicated to launching products that are good for kids. Several years ago, I came up with the idea of creating a healthy eating toy and book that can inspire children to make healthy food choices. As a mom, I’ve struggled to keep my kids away from sugary junk and to get them to eat more fruits and veggies, so I decided to turn my idea into reality. Over the last year, I put an enormous amount of effort and passion into creating “The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll” and writing an adorable healthy eating picture book. I am delighted that both the toy and the book are now ready to share with the world!

  1. How is your product going to inspire healthy eating? How will it work?

The idea behind the Healthy Eating Doll and the book is to introduce children to the concept of making smart food choices. Reading and imaginative play are two of the most formative forces in childhood and they provide a great opportunity to teach children about health and good nutrition in a simple, fun and unobtrusive way.

Summer, “The World’s First Healthy Eating Doll”, is a smart magnetic doll that can easily tell which foods are good for her. She comes with a set of 20 colorful, wooden toy foods and a cute shopping bag. Healthy foods like apples, carrots, tomatoes, blueberries and broccoli stick to her mouth so she can “eat” them. If the doll is offered a lollipop however, she will not take it. The effect of tasting and touching the foods is accomplished through the use of hidden magnets, that are safely and inconspicuously embedded in the mouth and the hands of the doll. Summer can easily pick up healthy foods with her hands and bring them to her mouth. She really knows what’s good for her!

My children’s picture book “Healthy Foods Are Fun to Eat” is also a lot of fun. The book is filled with bouncy rhymes and gorgeous illustrations made entirely of fruits and veggies. It features food art created by over 10 talented artists from all around the world! We custom-printed one SUPER large copy of the book which is now the largest known healthy eating picture book in the world😊 This special, gigantic copy will travel to libraries, schools and children’s museums to spread the positive message of healthy eating.

  1. What inspired you to come up with this idea?

I am a healthy eating enthusiast and I have always looked for ways to get my children to love and appreciate wholesome foods. Unfortunately, it’s not always that easy. We live in a world filled with countless unhealthy temptations that even grown-ups like me find difficult to resist.

I came up with the idea for the healthy eating doll and book when I saw a girl sharing a real apple with her doll and saying: “Here, eat this. It’s good for you!” It was so refreshing to see how this little mommy wanted the best for her “child”. We all want our kids to grow up happy and healthy and this beautiful experience inspired me to create the educational toy and book.

  1. Tell me a little bit about your Kickstarter Campaign and how people can help.

Right now, the doll and the book are available to pre-order on Kickstarter and I would be thrilled if you could check them out. It’s a boundless sea of information out there and Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing fundraising platform (you only get funded if you reach your minimum fundraising goal). If you like the idea PLEASE support on Kickstarter and share, share, share to help me bring this project to life!

  1. Is there anything else that you would like to add for our readers about your company?

Thank you so much for asking! We are a tiny start-up and this is our first product launch. The long-term vision is to develop the company as a specialty children’s brand dedicated to bringing great products to the market, while at the same time giving back to children in need. Our GOOD FOR KIDS business-social formula for success is simple: Good Products for a Good Cause, and we hope that we can make a positive impact on raising a happy and healthy new generation.

We just love this idea and we honestly think the design of the doll and book are adorable!

Children do mimic what they see and if the doll is eating healthy, it can definitely be a great motivator for them to eat healthy too. I know that my daughter got excited when she saw the doll’s photo as I wrote this piece and started to ask if she could get one. When I explained how the doll works, she was even more excited and told me that she wants to eat healthy too. I have to say this is a great start and she doesn’t even have the doll at hand yet! Therefore, this gets our stamp of approval!

If you would like to support the Kickstarter campaign, make sure to visit them here. Also follow them along on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

We would like to give a special thank you to Dessi for giving us at Momma Braga the first exclusive interview on her great product!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Fillet Sole Recipe

It is always a compliment when I get requests from loyal readers of Momma Braga and today’s recipe post is inspired by one of them.

A recipe that I love doing and is also one of my favorite dishes is fillet of sole. Growing up in a Portuguese household, fish was consumed at least one to two times a week. One popular dish is the fillet of sole.

Now many prepare and cook it differently which makes recipe sharing a delight. You can always try something new on a tradition.

Here is my simple recipe on a classic Portuguese dish.

INGREDIENTS

  • Fillet soles
  • Salt
  • Lemon
  • Olive Oil
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Eggs

DIRECTIONS

  • First clean the fillet soles in water (I usually grab a package of fillets at my local grocery store which are frozen. Once unfrozen, I wash them.)
  • Once cleaned marinate them with a little salt and squeeze lemon over all the fish.
  • While it sits in the juices, prep your work station.
  • First spread all-purpose flour on a flat plate.
  • Secondly, crack two eggs in a bowl (placing the shells in the compost). Scramble the eggs in the bowl.
  • Thirdly, add olive oil to a frying pan. Place the pan on the oven for frying. Start the heat on low to get the olive oil warm.
  • Then the frying fish process begins. First take a fillet and dip it into the egg bowl to cover the fish in egg. Once completed place it on the plate with the all-purpose flour. Cover the fish on both sides with the flour. Then place the fish in the frying pan. Let it fry one side and then flip it to the other side. I usually let it cook until it is golden crispy.
  • Repeat the above step until all the fish is cooked.

That is it! A simple recipe that will have your guests raving. For side dishes you can do anything like salad, veggies, rice and potatoes. One of our favorite is the Portuguese Style Rice. Either way many sides would make this dish delish!

Would love to hear what you like as a side with fish.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Honey Nut Cheerios Launches Their Third Year Of Bring Back The Bees

Honey Nut Cheerios has launched their third year of Bring Back the Bees! If you haven’t heard the buzz about the bees then you have come to the right place!

Bees have been around for millions of years but in the last few years, their population has been on a dramatic decline. Did you know that bees are a crucial part of our agriculture? It is called pollination. In fact, one third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. They keep our plants and crops alive. So it is very important to help the bees to thrive.

“Bees love to live in urban settings where there are short flight paths and a variety of different plants and flowers to sample just as much as they love the country.”

This year in honor of the #BringBackTheBees Campaign, Honey Nut Cheerios has partnered up with Canadian author, Paulette Bourgeois and illustrator Josee Bisallion. They have created an engaging new children’s book to encourage Canadian kids to do their part to help, Bella and Jack Bring Back The Bees!


We got a chance to review this book and we are so glad that we did!

Bella and Jack Bring Back The Bees tells the story of two kids who learn about the threats to our bee populations and are inspired to do their part to help bring back the bees.

The beauty of this book is the ability it has to teach children the importance of bees and how we need to help them. I know that as we read the book my three old was very concerned about bees and said, “We need to help Momma!”

Since we got our Wildflower seeds, I showed her how we were going to use them to help the bees. Now my three year old is very excited that she can do something to help her buzzing friends. As soon as Spring gets to our backyard, we will plant them in our garden.

We give Bella and Jack Bring Back The Bees, 5 BUZZZZZ out of 5! The great news is that Honey Nut Cheerios is giving away 100,000 free copies of the book nationally, through Indigo, Coles and Chapters and online. Just visit Bring The Bees website to see how you can get your own copy of this adorable book.

“Bees have good colour vision. That’s why flowers are so showy. They especially like blue, purple, violet, white and yellow.”

How You Can Help

Honey Nut Cheerios is making it easy to help by providing wildflower seeds across the country to help preserve and grow the natural habitat bees need for survival.

Over the past two years, the Bring Back the Bees campaign has helped Canadians plant more than 600 million wildflowers across the country, and this year they’re hoping to plant another 300 million seeds.

So how can you get wildflower seeds? You just order them online for your free packages of wildflower seeds and they are sent to you ready to be planted in the spring weather. It is that simple to help out the amazing bees!

We can’t wait to plant ours and do our part to help the bees and our agriculture. Make sure to order your seeds and remember that its FREE! Once you get your seeds and plant them, feel free to take a picture and tag @MommaBraga , @CheeriosCA and #BringBackTheBees as we would love to see your photos!

For more information on this great campaign and all things bees please visit,  https://bringbackthebees.ca/.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Canja Da Galinha (Portuguese Chicken Soup) Recipe

The beauty of recipes is the variations that can be done with them. This is why I love sharing the way my family makes some traditional Portuguese dishes as every family does it a little different but all still so great.

One of my favorite soups growing up is Canja da Galinha which is Chicken Soup. It is perfect for a cold winter’s day and it is just so very yummy! My mom just made this recently and it made me remember some great childhood memories. So I asked her to share her recipe and she was delighted to share it with all of you.

As I was writing my mom’s instructions I realized how simple this soup was to make and will be giving it a try myself very soon.

Canja Da Galinha (Portuguese Chicken Soup) Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • Water
  • Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breast
  • Salt
  • 1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
  • Onion (Chopped into quarters)
  • Olive Oil
  • Long Grain Rice (usually 1 – 2 cups, depending on how much you want to make)

DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a pot with water and add the boneless and skinless chicken breasts.
  • Once the chicken is cooked. Remove from the water and with a knife cut up the chicken breasts into shredded pieces.
  • In a new pot, fill it with at least 3 cups of water.
  • Add some salt, onion (in quarters), 1 chicken bouillon cube, olive oil and the long grain rice.
  • Stir the ingredients in the pot under medium heat.
  • Once the rice is expanded and tender, add the cooked chicken breast.
  • Stir one last time and close the heat.
  • Optional: There are other ingredients that you can add into the soup and to each their own. 😉 We have added some chicken giblets and gizzards into the soup as well and it has been delish!

And there you have it, Portuguese Chicken Soup! Such a quick and simple way to a nice soup for those cold crisp days. Give it a try and let me know what you think of it!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Adventures In Veggieland Takes Us On A Taste Bud Adventure

Melanie Potock is no stranger to the Momma Braga audience as we have featured her and her amazing books a few times and we just love her!

Therefore, I am delighted to say that Melanie is back but with a new and exciting book called Adventures in Veggieland. This new book is designed to help your kids learn to love vegetables with 100 easy activities and recipes.

We were excited for this book ever since we got a sneak peek of it!

Now I get to introduce all of you to this great book! Adventures in Veggieland takes us on a trip to healthy eating and it is done in such a colourful and fun way.

The book is divided into four parts: Winter Vegetables, Spring Vegetables, Summer Vegetables and Autumn Vegetables. This was very creative and makes the book flow nicely.

Throughout the book, Melanie gives parents a great resource and tool to be successful in making vegetables part of your family meal. Melanie states to just follow the “Three E’s”:

  • Expose your child to new vegetables with sensory, hands-on, educational activities. Such as create Beet Tattoos and play Cabbage Bingo!
  • Explore the characteristics of each veggie (texture, taste, temperature, and more) with delectable but oh-so-easy recipes such as Parsnip-Carrot Mac’n’Cheese and Pepper Shish Kebabs!
  • Expand your family’s repertoire with more inventive vegetable dishes – including a “sweet treat” in ever chapter. Enjoy Pears and Parsnips in Puff Pastry and Tropical Carrot Confetti Cookies!


Even though this book is around getting your children to enjoy vegetables, it is also great for us as adults too. Recently, we have started to make better eating choices for ourselves so the timing of this book was perfect!

Now we couldn’t do a review on an activity and recipe book without trying any of them. So we did! We of course are ready for Spring and Summer weather so we picked Asparagus (Spring) and Bell Peppers (Summer) to try out.

We first tried the Asparagus Logs which were a lot of fun to do. The beauty of each activity and recipe is the wealth of skills that each one provides to you and your little one.  For example in the Asparagus Logs provides a description, benefits and how to use the vegetable. Then you have your list of what you need and instructions on how to complete the activity and it is neatly divided on who’s responsibility it falls under (love that!). Then there are some tips and there is a brief description of how your child benefits from this activity – genius!

Nikki and I loved this activity and Nikki loved the feel and texture of the asparagus as she was building. It was a great activity to introduce her to this new vegetable.

“Always celebrate each tiny step and focus on the fun.” – Melanie Potock

The next one we tried involved one of our favorite vegetables, Bell Peppers! So we combined that with another love of ours which is kebabs. This one was a recipe and so simple to follow. Nikki loved helping put the bell peppers onto the skewers and it was delish!

I am sure we will be trying a lot more in the days, weeks and months to come. It is a great addition to our kitchen and our health thanks Melanie Potock for putting together another great resource for families to thrive.

So what do we give Adventures in Veggieland? We give it 5 veggies out of 5! It truly makes veggies fun and not so scary after all. If you would like to purchase this lovely book, please click here.

“Melanie Potock truly takes us on a taste bud adventure with this book! She offers amazing tips, activities, and recipes to make eating vegetables so much more fun for the entire family. A great resource for all parents.”

Fresh City Is Providing A Healthier Way To Do Groceries

“Fresh City makes it simple to eat a healthy and seasonal diet. Working with some of Ontario’s best farmers and makers to deliver fresh produce and healthy local + organic groceries right to your door.”

They are a city farm and are proud to work with some of Ontario’s finest growers. From sourcing from organic farms, to packing in reusable bags, to delivering with electric bikes, their operations respect both people and planet. They are a Certified B-Corp and have been featured in several documentaries for their pioneering work in farming the city.

Located at Downsview Park, they organically grow on two acres and in a greenhouse. It’s where they run farm tours and events as well as many of their workshops.  The 3,000-square foot greenhouse is fully self-contained and off-grid, the greenhouse boasts rainwater capture and irrigation system and uses solar energy to power the fans.

Fresh City has created a Member Farmer Program as a way to connect urban farmers to land, facilities, and a supportive learning community. Today the program supports over 20 farmers as they pursue self-sufficiency and farming business dreams. Fresh City farmers grow vegetable, herbs, and flowers for them to sell.

Sounds like an amazing operation, doesn’t it?! Well, it just got better with the recent launch of the baby/toddler category.

I had the opportunity to recently try their services and products to see how it would work for my amazing community of readers.

Firstly an account would need to be set up on their website where you would put in all your information and then you can begin to follow the instructions to order your groceries online.

There are many things that can be ordered and I just didn’t know what I wanted to try first but I did manage to put a good list of things from a variety of the different categories but especially from the baby/toddler category.  My order was inputted with a simple click of the mouse and my delivery was scheduled for the following week on a Wednesday. It was very simple!

The delivery date arrived and I was excited to receive the package. It arrived promptly on the Wednesday and was neatly packed in a great reusable bag which can be returned or you may leave it at your door for the next order delivery date. I would call this environmentally friendly!

The baby and toddler products that I received were some fruit snacks, Hugga Bear Chocolate chip cookies, pasta with different shapes (dino and farm ones which are super cute!) and we also got the sensitive unscented baby wipes. We also got ourselves some neat things too.


The products all looked so great and they are high quality food. The fruits we got are fresh and taste great! Everything that we got we have loved.

Therefore, for this #MelandNikkiReview we give Fresh City 5 Kiwis out of 5 for the quality of food, prompt delivery, simple to use service, environmentally friendly and offering healthy options for families in the Greater Toronto Area. It’s a mouth full of great qualities but all worth mentioning. It’s a service that is great for families who want healthy options and it is convenient at its finest.

There is more with Fresh City that you will need to check out such as the prepared meal, recipe kits and so much more.

As a special offer to Momma Braga readers you can receive $20 off your order as a first time customer by using promo code: FRESHREADER. What a great offer – thank you Fresh City!

Make sure to follow Fresh City on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as I am sure there will be so much more to come from them.

Special thank you to Kim from Fresh City for giving Momma Braga the opportunity to review their great service and keep up the great work!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Quash Your Cravings With Quiznos Limited Gyros Sub

For over 35 years, Quiznos has taken pride in bringing big flavour with quality ingredients. As pioneers of the toasted sub, they have been serving with butcher-quality meats and all natural cheeses.

So what has this tasty establishment decided to quash our taste buds with?

They have gone back in time to discover Gyrocleese, faux Greek god and inventor of the ever popular Gyro!

To celebrate, Quiznos is making history with the introduction of two new modern gyro options. They are the Gyros Whole Wheat Wrap and the Gyro Sub Sandwich which is available for a limited time (end of December).

So are they really that great?

We had the honour to be invited as an official taste tester for this special limited time menu item and of course we said YES!

It was time to check out Quiznos for the very first time and take a bite out of the Gyro Sub.

The Gyro Sub is layered with scrumptious seasoned beef and lamb into a traditional toasted sub (of your choice) and its beautifully topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and creamy tzatziki sauce.

Talk about Greek “hero” perfection! (Excuse me…my mouth is watering again!)

I visited the location closest  to my home and ordered our family dinner. When I arrived home it was time for the ultimate taste test. I unwrapped my neatly wrapped sub and I have to say that I love that they cut the 9 inch sub in half.

I took a bite and my taste buds got all the great flavours a Gyro has to offer and enjoyed every single bite!

Now it was time to evaluate on the #MelandNikkiReview and we give it a 5 Greek Gods out of 5. The Gyro Sub offers an abundance of flavour, freshness and high-quality ingredients. The real difference is that their core recipe is around toasting the subs. By toasting the subs, it brings out more flavour and makes it mouth-watering good! “It’s all about the oven.”

This is why we recommend to quash your craving this holiday season with Quiznos Gyros Sub or Wrap before they are gone from the menu (end of December). You don’t want to miss it! It is a great family meal idea too!

Also make sure to follow Quiznos Canada on Facebook for some mouth-watering posts and don’t forget to visit a location near you!

A special thank you to Quiznos Canada for the gift card so that I can try this fabulous new sandwich!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
