Now that August is here, it is a slippery slope into fall. Though I am not ready for the summer to end, my favourite season is just around the corner!! Continue reading “Cauliflower Shepherds Pie”
Finally, the warm weather is here. We can all come out of hibernation! Bring on the cottage weekends, travelling to meet family, evening activities and day trips. I live for these things, but this can usually mean trying to eat faster meals, eating on the go and not always a lot of time for meal prep.
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.
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!
This past Saturday I wrapped up my 21 Day Fix challenge that I completed with a couple other women. It was amazing to have people along on the journey and even more exciting to see other people’s results along the way!
The reason that I decided to embark on this challenge again (as I have already done it before) is that I was feeling like I needed a little bit of a reset. Read More
I thought I would share another easy recipe with you guys this week. I am ALL about easy. When something is easy, and it tastes great. That’s a double win! I can’t take credit for this recipe, I screen shotted it from someone that I follow on Instagram so I can’t link it back to the source, but if you happen to see this recipe and it’s yours… THANK YOU!
I am a huge fan of breakfast!! It’s not only the most important meal of the day, but happens to be one where I enjoy pretty much everything about! Eggs, bacon, waffles, hashbrowns, benedicts, pancakes! I could go on…
When it comes to living a balanced lifestyle, nutrition is half the battle. In fact, nutrition is more than half the battle. It’s been said that
The last few years juicing has really become a thing! Crazy expensive juicers, million day long juice diets, and lots of cleanup! But they are just sooo good!
I was kind enough that a dear friend of mine lent me an old juicer that she was not using anymore back when I decided that I wanted to start making juices. People around me were doing 3,5,10,20 day juice cleanses so I was curious what it was all about! First, can I give a shout out to anyone that has the dedication to stick to a multi day juice cleanse. To be clear, this means juice only for that amount of days…not to mention if you are making it yourself, the amount of cleaning and pulp that includes!! Kudos!
So when I got my hands on this juicer I learned a few things: juicing involved way too much post juicing tidy up, of that I wasn’t a big fan. I also learned that you need a large haul of veggies and fruits in order to extract one mason jar full of liquid and it seemed to never turn out as nice looking as anyone else’s (perhaps the crazy expensive juicer has a purpose 🙂 ) . Lesson I learned? Self juicing, although I thoroughly enjoy the juice itself, was not for me.
Two staples that I could not live without: a crock pot and a few solid cookbooks.
There is nothing that I despise more than finishing a long day of work, picking up Clara and then having to think on the fly about what I am going to make for dinner. This would be the time when I would think of something quick, that generally would not fall under the “healthy” nor “balanced” categories. It was a lot easier to eat something that required less effort and was less healthy when it was just the two of us. Now that we have our daughter, a little extra planning needs to go into it because I like to make sure that most of the meals I serve are wholesome and good for her little growing body!
I have not always been a big fan of cooking.
