Screen Shot 2016-03-06 at 7.49.59 PM MYTH: Using “quinoa” in the title of a muffin recipe automatically makes it a healthy alternative. FACT: If you took out the 1/2 cup of quinoa for the whole recipe, you’d be left with a enriched white flour raspberry muffin, made with nutrient-poor, inflammatory ingredients.   We can do better. Come back this week to see how I renovate this Quinoa Raspberry Muffin recipe to be HEALTHY and TASTY!      … Read More
  IMG_2051Just a few more weeks until the official start of SPRING! I’m not a lover of winter for many reasons, but dry-cracked red skin is high up on the list of reasons to say See Ya, Winter! Since we are almost ready to start peeling back the layers of our clothing, it’s the perfect time to shed dehydrated, cracked deficient skin too. The best way to do this is by increasing skin-specific superfoods! Beautiful skin is an inside job.     This smoothie is stocked with superfoods for skin health. Spring Glow Smoothie  Ingredients: 1/2 cup Papaya: rejuvenates, reduces… Read More
IMG_1976-2 It’s hard to resist a chocolate chip cookie…so don’t! Just make sure it’s free of junky ingredients and includes easy-to-digest, natural and wholesome alternatives. These cookies make an allergy-safe school snack, healthy treat for work or a delicious dessert, post-meal.                     I’m on a millet kick this week. It’s one of the cheapest grain-like seeds on the market. It provides minerals like magnesium (great for keeping you calm) B vitamins (to keep you happy), fibre (to keep your gut happy) and other antioxidants (for good health overall) I used millet flakes… Read More
IMG_1919My main focus when packing snacks  for my two boys is to sneak in some protein, fibre and healthy fats to provide immune system support, keep them regular and support their growing brains. The right foods keep them focused, full of healthy energy (not the hyper-crazy energy from refined carb snacks) and feel their best so they can learn the most. Naturally kids love carbs, especially muffins and cookies. They provide quick energy, take no time to scarf down and are often sweet tasting. Both my boys are no exception, but the muffins and cookies I pack for them are.… Read More
Hazelnut Almond Chocolate Protein Bar If you haven’t tried making your own protein bar yet then you MUST make this a priority. A huge amount of the bars you find on stores shelves have far too much sugar, fake fibre and a long list of ingredients that you can’t pronounce. Skip those bars, make your own. Your body will thank you.       Hazelnut Almond Chocolate Protein Bars Makes 12. Ingredients: 1 cup quinoa buckwheat flakes 2/3 cup hazelnut almond butter 3 tbsp raw honey 1/2 scoop Vega Protein & Greens Chocolate 2 tbsp coconut oil 2 tbsp cacao nibs 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded… Read More
Homemade Dark Chocolate Bark Chocolate is a feel-good food. When we are stressed or feeling low in energy, this is one of the most common foods we crave as it boosts our mood and evokes the same feelings as when you are in love. Many chocolate bars on supermarket shelves have a high amount of  refined sugar, poor-quality oils and artificial ingredients, which can lead to mood disruptions, weight gain and further stress! When you have a chocolate craving, try this Homemade Dark Chocolate Bark. With simple, wholesome ingredients you can reach for a small piece of this and feel good after.   Homemade… Read More
Chia pudding is a energy-boosting, velvety tasting, good-for-everyone snack/dessert or even meal (if you make it with the right ingredients) I make at least one batch every week and change up the flavours. Chocolate is usually my favourite, but I decided to change it up this week. I’m SO SICK OF THIS BONE CHILLING WEATHER, so I made a tropical-tasting chia pudding to add some sunshine to our food. Watch this video for the recipe! <3 Miranda… Read More
