Basil Pumpkin Seed Pesto (vegan)

2017-02-12 16.09.23

I’m ready for Spring. Like, ready yesterday!!! How about yourself? I think even my digestive system is confused. Normally, when the weather starts to warm up, I start craving more raw foods but that hasn’t quite happened to me yet. We have been having constant rain in Vancouver and I know that other parts of Canada and the U.S are experiencing boughts of snow. Isn’t that cray-cray?

Superfood Chia Bowl

I’m giddy excited today. We’re just in the process of booking our Spring trip to L.A.  We had been toying with the idea of going to Thailand but given that we only had about a week, it just didn’t seem like the best use of such a short amount of time. We’ve tabled that trip for next year.

Golden Milk Chia Seed Pudding

James and I are in Seattle for the weekend. I decided mid-week that I really needed to get out of town (literally) as I had been pushing myself a bit too hard. If you read my last post, you would have learned that after a few months of feeling pretty great, I had a set back.

Last week, my sweetie (my husband) James was out of town visiting his family.  And while I love my time and routine with him, I do find myself even more productive on my weekends when he’s not there.

I’ve had a bucket-load of cacao beans that myprotein.ca sent me back in December. They’re cacao is amazing. I absolutely thought that their cacao powder was the richest that I’ve come across. Sheer decadence.

How To Make Homemade Ghee

IMG_5667

I don’t know about you but I’m all about trying to make as much as I possibly can in my own home. From GRAIN FREE GRANOLA, to GRAIN FREE GRANOLA BARS, SMOOTHIES and DAIRY FREE PUMPKIN SPICED LATTES, and TURMERIC TEA LATTES, I want to be able to see and control what I am putting into my body. The same goes for ghee.  But, I understand that most people may not know what ghee is, never mind assume that it’s only for Indian food! (That’s what I thought too!)

Products I Love: Wholy Tea (detox + cleanse)

Print

I’ve seen a lot of teas out there that say that they can make you “skinny”, leaner, lose weight, etc.  And, honestly, I never actually bought into the gimmick of it.  Any nutritionist will tell you that weight loss has much to do with balance in your food, exercise and lifestyle.  If those don’t work, then we look at potential imbalances in the body. That’s it. That’s the recipe. Wholy Tea is a whole different ball game.  I actually started with the Detox & Cleanse version as the timing of it was perfect – two week’s before Christmas.
