Grain-Free Skillet Cookie



Over the past month or so, I’ve been trying to reduce my consumption of grains. I know. You might be thinking I’m crazy, but as a Nutritionist I’m big on listening to your body and eating the foods that make you thrive. For me, that means more veggies and protein, and less processed flours. This might not happen 100 percent of the time, but that’s okay. Life is about balance and enjoying the journey – especially if you’re a dessert daydreamer like me. Continue reading →

Cause you can never just have one popsicle 😉  Continue reading →

Vanilla Chai Smoothie



Smoothies are one of my favourite breakfasts, especially on hot summer mornings. But sometimes you get board of the same old fruit or chocolate smoothie. The world of smoothies is so exciting, it’s a shame to stick to the same mix every morning, no matter how delicious it is. Lately I’ve been trying to stay away from the world of fruit smoothies in the hopes of consuming less sugar. Not sure how the less sugar thing is going, but I’m trying. Continue reading →
