#HalfYourPlate looking forward to this! It will be fun to talk food with @ChefMichaelSmth. ALways learning something new from his show.


It is great to see people being encouraged to eat more fruit and vegetables for better health.

Why is this contest not valid for Quebec? I want to join but is it about the language laws?

Melissa (FBC Admin)

Hi Jason, Quebec has very different contest laws from the rest of the country that require registering each contest and doing a number of other things so a lot of companies just choose to make national contests unavailable in Quebec. It’s not unusual, and unfortunately most of the contests we run disqualify Quebec residents from taking part. You can read a little bit more about what’s involved here:


This promises to be a topic that could change eating habits!

Barbara @ My Island Bistro Kitchen

Summer is an easy time to #HalfYourPlate with veggies because of all the wonderful fresh produce available this time of the year.

Denise @urbnspice

This will be great! I enjoyed the last #halfyourplate and having @ChefMichaelSmith join the Twitter party will be terrific. He is an excellent teacher.


So excited to interact with my fellow foodies and learn how to #HalfYourPlate at every meal!


I’ve heard #lentils are a great way to fill #halfyourplate. Looking forward to my first twitter party.
