Ottawa Citizen Nutrition Watch Week 15 - THANK YOU!!!

So blearly eyed I woke up, rolled out of bed and as per my last few months' Thursday morning ritual, logged onto the Ottawa Citizen's Digital Edition to review the Food section's recipes.

I'm absolutely delighted to report that this morning's fare included not only the recipes but also their nutritional breakdowns!

A huge thank you to the Ottawa Citizen for entertaining this request. I know that they are an overworked, underpaid group of folks and that calculating nutritional information only adds to their plates. Sincere thanks to Gerry Nott editor-in-chief and Wendy Warburton for taking the time to listen to our request and respond in a manner consistent with a genuine caring for their readership.

I've always been a ready reader of the Citizen's Food section which thanks to Ron Eade is always fun, fresh and informative and I will continue to read it, but unless somehow the nutritional analyses fall off their pages, I think my work here is done.

Thanks too to all of the readers who may have sent the Citizen emails encouraging them to consider this change. Why not take the 30 seconds or so today and send a simple email of thanks to Editor-in-Chief Gerry Nott, Food Editor Ron Eade and Wendy Warburton by clicking here.

For today's nutritional breakdowns - go buy yourself a paper!
