30799-west-african-squash-cashew   Serving my 2 growing boys healthy food is one of my top priorities on my “Mom must-do list”. The most common barrier to checking this chore off my list is, of course, time. When there is a whole lot of life happening, as it is in all families, sometimes it is hard to construct a healthy meal every single night. When confronted with those busy evenings of late work schedules, kids activities and empty fridges, I don’t grab fast food from a drive through, but I will grab fast food from a grocery store. Here I can find some… Read More
img_1482 Okay there’s no voodoo in this brownie, but it’s pretty magical that you can turn three healthy ingredients into chocolate decadence. I’ve shared this recipe before and I’m doing it again in Jack-o-lantern form. It’s not going to end up in a trick or treat bag, but it’s just too easy (and cute) not to be passed around to all moms and dads looking to divert the kids attention from the junky junk candies and chocolates coming home in their trick or treat bags. My boys like anything that looks like chocolate; chocolate cake, chocolate bars, chocolate chips, chocolate chunks… Read More
fullsizerender-11 Dead leaves, seaweed, rotten eggs, too. Stir them in my witches’ brew. I got magic, Alakazamakazoo. Spider web, moldy bread, mucky mud, too. Stir them in my witches’ brew. I got magic! Alakazamakazoo ooo – My witches’ brew – ooo What’s it gonna do to you? Boo! (Witches Brew, Hap Palmer) There isn’t moldy bread, rotten eggs or mucky mud in this smoothie, but seaweed would have been a great idea. Seaweed has a crazy amazing amount of minerals that are needed to boost the immune system after the sugar gorge fest a.k.a Halloween. Although this holiday is not high… Read More
Photo Credit: The Marilyn Denis Show If you’re my friend, you know that this is my go-to treat to bring to parties, when I have company, or when I am in need of a little chocolate/peanut butter therapy. I even brought them on The Marilyn Denis Show as a healthy halloween treat last October. Once you make a batch they last for a few months in the freezer, so these bad boys are ready for you when you want a bite or two. With only 6 ingredients that you probably have in your cupboard right now! Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter… Read More
img_1522 Today’s dinner consisted of one of my boys eating his fish and not eating his broccoli and purple potatoes, the other one would only eat his broccoli and potatoes. Together they make a nutritionally balanced kid, but apart they like to make me work for it. Of course I told them to eat it and they declined saying that they don’t like it, and you know how it goes from there. The food tug of war that no one ever wins… So I walked away slightly annoyed and decided they are on a need to know basis for the next… Read More
  img_9523Photo Credit: Jorge Polio Photography I’ve had the pleasure of supporting Canada’s Queen of R&B Jully Black over the past three months in nurturing and supporting her POWERHOUSE voice. She calls me her belly boss. Jully came to me with the desire to support her voice as she ramps up to record a new album. She also wanted to strengthen her body and feel more energy. If you’ve seen Jully perform or simply just been in the room with her, you know that she possesses an incredibly contagious energy. She exudes passion and has channeled her energy into inspiring… Read More
img_1426 September 1st has always given me that sinking feeling in my stomach that the back to school / back to work craziness is about to begin. Earlier mornings, later nights, very little downtime and even less checked off my self-care list has been what I experienced in the past 7 years after becoming a mom. It’s beautiful chaos, being a mom and watching the precious fleeting moments that I try to be present for. By present I mean that I am in the moment and not on my phone or thinking about what I have to get done and those… Read More
fullsizerender-3   After my Chocolate Avocado cake disappeared into the bellies of my boys in ONE day, I just had to bake something more with this creamy combo. I love how an avocado acts as the perfect fat once smoothed out, I didn’t need any oil for this recipe. I decided to use my Vitamix for this recipe because it’s my favourite kitchen toy and it gets the avocado to a pureed state without any little pieces. Here’s the recipe:  Chocolate Chip Avocado Mini Muffins Makes 24 mini muffins Ingredients:  1 ripe avocado 1 ripe banana 1/4 cup raw honey 7… Read More
