Cool Cucumber Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are all the hype! And that’s because they are super good for you! Leafy and green veggies have a number of benefits for your body and for your gut! But for a lot of folks, the thought of drinking something that tastes so earthy is a bit intimidating. It is an acquired taste I would say (which for the record, anyone can acquire 🙂 ) but I often enjoy making this lighter version that still includes all of the good stuff that green smoothies offer!

If I Won the Lottery- Current Book Wishlist

The last couple years I have  become a reading junkie. I am ALWAYS reading something and always have my eye out for the next good book to add to my list! Currently, while I am still in school, and needing to do all the readings for that, I am not able to read for leisure as much as I would like to. I look forward to finishing up this certification later this year, so that I can spend more time with my nose in a book.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust- Say what!

Who doesn’t love pizza? Warm gooey cheese, soft chewy bread, the savoury pepperoni and all the toppings. Are you drooling yet? I am a huge pizza lover. It is almost ALWAYS my go to when I don’t feel much in the mood for cooking. And because of this, I had been looking for a healthier alternative to your traditional bread crust. Thankfully, I found this delicious cauliflower crust recipe! Modified from the Food Network Website (I cant help but make every recipe I use my own!)

There is some time involved in creating this, but I will say to you it is completely worth it! One thing I will emphasize is that you really take the time to press all the moisture out of the cauliflower. It will make it more dry and more likely to crisp up!

Well, I am here to tell you you can! It’s all in the way you perceive it.

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,
