fullsizerender Today I shared my 5 steps to get on track with your diet on The Marilyn Denis Show.  My biggest take away from this segment is to be kind but firm with yourself when making a change. It takes time to build up enough momentum both physically and emotionally to get into a new diet rhythm. Dedicate time to nurturing your health through the right foods and you will see huge changes ahead. I’d love to hear what’s worked for you, or if you have questions or comments share away!   Watch the segment here Step #1: PURGE THE JUNK… Read More
IMG_9622   PSB is code for pumpkin seed butter. I call it PSB balls because even though my kids will eat everything I make with PSB they think they dislike pumpkin seed butter. They also think they hate shredded coconut, golden berries and hemp hearts these days…but when they are rolled into these sweet little balls I can’t keep enough of them stocked. They make a great school snack (some ingredients are from a facility that processes nuts, so check with your school first), even a quick breakfast when you’re tight for time in the morning and I’ve even told my… Read More
  cereal bar   An old friend from elementary school came to visit me with her two adorable kids a few weeks back. Growing up we spent many days together listening to Smashing Pumpkins, talking about boys while snacking on her mom’s amazing cereal bars. It’s pretty special what you can experience when you indulge in enjoyable recollections of past events. I could almost taste those delicious bars when we were catching up. So I had to try my own version with a nutrition focus for my kids…and well, me too. So here they are with protein, minerals and healthy fats….did I… Read More
IMG_9513 Another throw together breakfast smoothie that worked out! And by worked out I mean the kids drank it. My little one actually asked for a BIG glass, so I did an inner mom dance and carried on. This one has a handful of baby kale and because of the chocolate colour they had NO IDEA. It’s those little things that can make you feel like you’ve got it all together…that is until I go past my heaping load of laundry. As you can see in the picture (posted on Instagram Story) I spelled help hearts instead of hemp hearts. I… Read More

IMG_9429   I’ve probably attempted 3,000 smoothie variations over the past seven years while trying to sneak as many different veggies and fruits into my kids bellies. Some work, MANY fail. As you can imagine and probably already know, leafy greens are the hardest to “sneak” in due to it’s natural bitter flavour. I am persistent with adding them because I believe that integrating them into the boys diet is super important for their long term diet outlook. This isn’t just because leafy greens have an abundant amount of nutrients, but because the more bitter foods they have in their diet,… Read More

IMG_8918 Business demands, children demands, husband demands, cleaning demands, cooking demands, laundry demands, social demands, personal demands, demands, demands, demands!!! Everyday. Sound familiar? I know I’m not alone. I love my family and I love my job, without them my life would feel empty and without purpose, but somedays I feel like my head is going to explode! It’s a pretty normal thought, and it is very common to hear women say “let’s crack open a bottle of wine” to unwind from a stressful day. I felt this way for years and often poured myself a habitual glass of wine during… Read More
