What's in my pantry

What’s in my…pantry?  As you can see, my pantry is full to the brim of “stuff”.  In fact, this is just 1 of 2 pantries that I have.  But, next to my fridge, this is my go-to place for  most of my ingredients for smoothies and baking.  I can’t possibly go through them all but I’ll try and breakdown my top favourite essentials.

Our Top Beauty Obsessions

Top Beauty Obsessions

Did you know that proper nutrition can lead to glowing, healthy skin?  We get so trapped into the advertising telling us that certain commercial products will dramatically add years to our skin.  However, it is proven that an effective anti aging and healthy skin program includes a diet primarily full of micronutrients and antioxidants including vitamin’s C and E, beta-carotene, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and of course, water (and lots of it).

I am that woman.  I do want it all.  I have a day job in Human Resources and I spend my evenings studying to become a Registered Nutritionist for both my own health and for those around me.  I spend my weekends in front of my computer creating posts like this one and the one you are reading now, developing recipes that are quick and easy to make and that don’t skimp on nutrition.  I study health and studying those in the health industry as they inspire me.  I am also developing a business in the pockets of time I have and throw in my marriage, friendships and family.
