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…
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…
  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…
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…
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…
Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Cake Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Cake This cake speaks for itself.  Creamy chocolate, creamy avocado. Not much more to say but YUM. From a nutritional perspective, it’s a heart healthy cake. I used avocado and olive oil in this recipe which contain a significant amount of monounsaturated fat which help to support and strengthen the cardiovascular system. Raw cacao is rich in the mineral magnesium which helps to relax your heart and you in general. I gave it to the boys for dessert tonight and after doing 20 laps around the house they slipped into dream land faster than usual. I’m going…
img_1176 Fish oil. Yup, I did. I put it in my frozen treats for the boys and they loved it. Sea-licious Maple Fish oil is so tasty that they’ll pull the bottle out of the fridge themselves and remind me to give it to them. Let’s be clear, I don’t get into great detail of the specific ingredients inside.  They have no idea that there’s anchovy, mackeral, and sardine body oil mixed into these Maple Vanilla Frozen Cups. They just care that it tastes good. And I care that they eat it and get the health benefits. I do tell them…
