Essential oils have changed how we approach wellness in our home, and with my daughter, there is no exception. As a 3 year old who is constantly absorbing what is going on around her, and is always wanting to learn, I have enjoyed getting to share these tools and this experience with her, and her being able to reap the benefits as well.
I still remember the moment I realized needed to make a change. I was sitting on my bed after the scale tipped over 200 pounds. How did I let myself get so disconnected with what was happening to my body? Continue reading “My Story: What Are You Waiting For?”
Greens, greens, greens. I love to educate people about the benefits of greens and what they can do for your insides. And if you are anything like me, I am always looking for fresh new ways to incorporate a serving of greens into my day.
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!
How many of you scroll through social media and see women crushing their workouts, day after day and it makes you think “I wish I was motivated like they are to workout”? “They make it look so easy”, “I wish I could do that too”. Well, I am here to tell you you can! It’s all in the way you perceive it.
I used to hear the term superfoods often, and to be quite honest, I wasn’t entirely sure what that mean. I thought it meant that they were foods that were really good for you, however; not sure of the extent or the reasoning.
There’s a saying… every little bit counts. And when it comes to wanting to live a healthier lifestyle and incorporate more whole foods into your nutrition, this mantra couldn’t be more accurate.
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,
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.
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.
