If you ever want to try eating more healthily, consider the following five unique and uncommon vegetables. They might inspire you to incorporate more healthy vegetables into your diet, and inspire you to create new dishes.

1. Sunchoke: Also known as Jerusalem artichokes, they are actually not artichokes at all, but rather are the tuber of a species of sunflower. These root vegetables can be a tasty starch substitute for potatoes. Sunchokes are good sources of thiamin, phosphorus, and potassium. They are also very good sources of iron.

Everyone should consider adding plants to their house, since the addition of a plant purifies the air and makes you feel happier and calmer. Here are five plants to get you started as a plant owner and caregiver.

1. Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme: Owning herbs is an excellent idea, since they make the house look nice and you can eat them little by little. To plant these herbs successfully, buy seedlings, keep them in separate pots, and keep the soil moist.

2. Spider Plant: An all-time favourite houseplant, the spider plant is very successful at reproducing, and it is a good air freshener. It absorbs common pollutants to naturally detoxify your home. Buy one that has plenty of green foliage and no brown under the leaves.

3. Ficus: This plant has shiny leaves, and stems that can be braided for a pleasant aesthetic effect. This plant likes to be in bright light, and most varieties prefer several days of dry soil in between thorough watering.

4. Snake Plant: This plany is also known as mother-in-law’s tongue. It grows well in a range of lighting conditions, and the air and soil should be kept somewhat dry. Its leaves grow upright – some varieties have yellow or white edges – and it has small white flowers that bloom.

5. Jade Plant: Also called a “money tree” and thought to bring good luck, the jade plant has excellent longevity. It grows slowly and has thick, lush leaves and visually interesting branches. To water this plant, use the “drench and drain” method, which is to allow the soil to dry out before completely soaking the root system again.

Pursuit OCR is a health club located at 444 Dufferin Street that has a huge indoor obstacle course and play zone. People of all ages can partake in the fun, and it is a great place to go this summer when the weather is too extreme outside. It is also a great place to go to burn off all the candy, ice cream, and other treats that may have been consumed earlier in the day. It is primarily an adult obstacle course, but spots can be reserved for children for Sundays from 7 a.m. to noon for family open park play days. Staff will also provide families with activities and fitness-related fun.

Pursuit OCR is a 10 000 square foot facility that has 2 classroom spaces and an indoor obstacle course consisting of 19 obstacles. The class space is surrounded by the independent training area, filled with equipment like ropes, stall bars, a slack line, and a couple of 11 and 14 feet high cove walls. The cove walls look like something you would see the “cool kids” skateboarding on – here, adults can run up the cove walls, hoist themselves on to the lip of the wall, and climb back down on a nearby secured ladder. The course is a mix of getting over or going under barriers, crawling through tunnels, climbing a tire wall, swinging from monkey bars, scaling a wall, and jumping into a ball pit. The course is considered to be quite challenging, and muscles will be sore days after visiting it. However, it is also very exhilarating. Amid the occasional moments of fear, reluctance, and exhaustion, all the activities are so much fun to take part in and incredibly exciting.
