How To Make Your Personal Care Routine Healthier

By | Blog | No Comments

Today I want to chat with you all about something that is not at all related to food. Sometimes when we think about living a healthier life we focus SO much on what we put IN our bodies that we forget how important it is to also focus on what we put ON our bodies. Our skin is our largest organ and the products that we apply to our skin…

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,…

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…
