| Blog | No Comments

Okay you guys… I was late to the Instant Pot party but I will tell you this – now that I have gotten into using it, I absolutely LOVE it (special thanks to this incredible blogger for the introduction)! One of the reasons I love it the most: my husband uses it and now I would say he does even more meal prep than I do! Full disclosure: for the…

Chocolate Milk: The Perfect Post Workout Snack?

| Blog | No Comments

I’ve heard people say for years that chocolate milk is the perfect post workout recovery drink… it’s the perfect combination of protein and carbohydrates they say… You guys… look at this marketing (I snapped this photo off the back of a Cheerios box that was on the conveyor belt at Superstore).   It’s true that an excellent post workout snack is a combination of protein and carbohydrates. In my opinion,…

Health Boosting Hot Chocolate

| Blog, Holiday, Recipes | No Comments

I got the base of this wonderful recipe from Rebecca at Be Naturally Fit (check out her AWESOME at home workouts here)!

Okay so the weather outside in Canada is extremely cold… so closing your eyes, starting each day with a piña colada and pretending you are on a warm beach is very appealing.  Not only during this cold time of year do you want to pretend you’re warmer than you are, but it’s also a good time to incorporate as many vitamins and minerals as you can, as so many nasty colds…
