An Introductory Guide to Intuitive Eating

I recently had the opportunity to write a guest post for Devon regarding grief and healthy coping strategies. You can find that recent post on her site here, and graciously, she returned the favour. I am really excited to share with you about intuitive eating; how we sometimes hold ourselves to such high standards, and how it can sometimes sabotage us! Happy Reading!

Express Gratitude for The Simple Things

IMG_2471

It has been a whirlwind of a January.

To start the year, I lost my grandfather. One of the most selfless people I have ever known. We were close him and I. My Opa was someone to look up to. He was kind and mentoring to all us grandchildren. He was always the mediator for as long as I can remember. Always encouraging us to be the best we could be, and to be kind to others… always telling us that he loved us. He was the glue that kept our family together, and I was feeling a huge loss. He was now free to join my Oma, who had passed when I was pregnant with my daughter.

Just after, I was struck with a serious blast of influenza. What started as fever and chill and exhaustion, turned into sinus pressure and a nasty cough, paired with more exhaustion. On the 10th day of riding out the sickness,

7 Days of Vegan Dinners

Well that was an awesome week!!

In November of last year, a co-worker of mine asked if I had ever considered trying out a vegan diet and them sharing ig with you all. My first thought was I’m not sure too many people would be interested in hearing how that went. However; then I thought about it more and I thought perhaps it would be cool as a chance to try out some different recipes and then share them after. So, I did a Instagram poll to find out if people would infact be interested and low and behold, huge feedback saying “Yes, do it!”.

Weight Loss Resolutions- What’s underneath them?

You hear me talk a lot about self love and having a healthy lifestyle, and I truly do live and breathe those mantras. I believe in loving yourself and accepting who you are, flaws and all- will help you on the road to the goals you have for yourself.

2017 was my biggest year- Will 2018 be yours?

With the last few days of 2017 upon us (I honestly cannot believe how fast the last few months flew by!) I have been spending a lot of time planning all my goals for 2018, but I have also spent some time reflecting on the goals I have accomplished in 2017.

How to have Healthier Holidays

Before I adopted a healthy lifestyle, I used to spend a lot of time restricting. I felt like restricting myself was the only way I would see the results I wanted and depriving myself would get me there. That was a time before I was equipped with the trust in myself to make the healthy choice, and the trust in my self control to be able to fluctuate and still be committed… before it was a way of living.

12k’s of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….Day 1 of the 12k’s of Christmas challenge. For the next 12 days I plan to run 1 km per day. And I want to invite you along with me! If you’re not a runner, you can walk! Or, if you are looking for a way to get into running, starting with one kilometre a day is a great way to build up your endurance.

Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies

Believe it or not, I have not always been a huge cook or baker… in fact, I used to find being in the kitchen to be a chore, and did not really put much effort into the things that I made, only on the very rare occasion. It wasn’t until I became a mom. Funny how I didn’t put a lot of effort into my own foods, yet when it came to ensure that my daughter was getting proper nutrition, balanced meals and wholesome meals, that is when I really started to grow my kitchen experience.
