Hi everyone! Allow me to re-introduce myself: I’m Lisa Weagle, a World Champion and two-time Olympian in curling, fan of Canadian food, and ambassador for Food Facts for Canadian Consumers (C3FC).

Being a Canadian is a privilege and huge source of pride—a pride I have felt while travelling the world for curling and wearing the maple leaf on the world stage at two Olympic Games and three World Championships. Canada is a top sporting country, but did you know Canada is also top producer of high-quality food?

Canadian farmers and food producers work tirelessly to produce world-class food, and I have partnered with C3FC to share how Canadian food is affordable, sustainable, healthy, and delicious.

In fact, buying Canadian is more important than ever during this difficult economic period to support our economy and maximize our family food budgets.

I’m going to be writing a series of blog posts for C3FC, and I want to know: what do you want to read about?

From eating for optimal health and performance, to ideas for shopping on a budget, to my favourite recipes, this is a space where I can share tips, stories, and of course, facts about Canadian food.

I’m looking forward to this journey with all of you, combining my experiences as an athlete with my love of Canadian food.

Lisa Weagle, OLY
