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)!

Chocolate Milk: The Perfect Post Workout Snack?

By | 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,…

There are SO many different opinions out there and before I begin I want to remind you, finding the eating pattern that works best for YOU is the most important, regardless of what we discuss in this post!  When most…

Okay you guys, here we go with week 2!  A recap of my goals for 2017:  Our grocery bill for the last 4 years has been approximately $250-$275 per week… for 2 people! My goal for 2017 is to shave $100 off of our weekly grocery bill (goal of $175 weekly) by being a more conscious consumer and really planning out our grocery purchases rather than making multiple trips to…

Health Boosting Hot Chocolate

By | 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)! I tweaked the recipe a bit to my own taste to give it a little more sweetness and thickness!  This recipe is SO much better than our regular hot chocolate because the healthy fat, fibre and little bit of protein help keep our blood sugar levels stable MUCH…

Ask The RD: Is Mayo Healthy?

By | Ask the RD, Blog | No Comments

This is a question that I get a lot and my response is often surprising to many of my clients. Is mayo healthy? It absolutely can be! I have to admit, one of my FAVOURITE things about my job is teaching people how to make SIMPLE swaps in their food choices that will have a big impact on their overall health (ex. changing sweeteners, swapping cooking oils, condiments, etc.). Today I’m going…

Should You Follow A Meal Plan?

Why you should quit your diet

Why You Should Quit Your Diet

By | Blog | No Comments

Let’s start off with some interesting research findings shared by fellow dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch: “Dieting twins, who embarked on just one intentional weight loss episode, were nearly 2-3 times more likely to become overweight, compared to their non-dieting twin counterpart. Furthermore, the risk of becoming overweight increased in a dose-dependent manner, with each dieting episode.” “A team of UCLA researchers reviewed 31 long-term studies on dieting and…
