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?

Gratitude + Matcha Green Tea Truffles

I got to tell you, this past week wiped me out. I’ve been getting up at 5am as I had started my study plan for my nutrition certification.  But, then a few things happened this week that presented a bit of a set back. But, I surprised myself this week.

I was surprised that my reaction to these situations were calm and collected. No joke, a couple of years ago, my emotions would have gone off the deep end. The DEEP-END. Crying, moody, disconnected. We’ve all have had those feelings at some point. So, where did I attribute the change to?




GRATITUDE. Straight up, simple gratitude.

In the midst of the week of having those issues, I turned on the national news and saw footage of the recent attacks in Syria.  I was in shock and disbelief. The images, if you haven’t already seen, are haunting.  And, like many, I immediately felt lucky that I live in such a safe country.  I sleep in a warm bed with someone who loves me and who will protect me.  I continued to tap into that feeling for the rest of the week and when another set back happened, I immediately went to that space.

Gratitude is an amazing practice. In my {free} Weekend Stress Detox Program, we go through the importance of this practice and how you can easily incorporate it into your life.  Get the program HERE. Now, onto the recipe!




How surprised are you to see that I have another matcha recipe for you?

Hahaha, I know.  I’m matcha crazy. But, listen, here’s why.

Matcha is crazy good for you. Here are some of the many benefits:

5 Things That I Do Daily For Healthy, Vibrant Skin

Healthy & Vibrant Skin

It’s Sunday morning and I’m in a Seattle coffee shop after waking from a deep, restful sleep in my hotel room. James and I often go to Seattle (Bellevue to be exact) to start the holiday season off.  If you’re in the area, Bellevue starts their annual Snowflake parade which just zaps you into the holiday spirit immediately! We’re also here to do a little bit of shopping too and to relax before the craziness of the holidays begin.

One of the great things about transitioning into the different seasons is the change in flavours. Besides pumpkin, root vegetables, spice, and apples take centre stage.

Dairy Free Pumpkin Spiced Almond Milk

IMG_5310

I’m dropping in quickly this Saturday morning before I hit the gym.  I just wanted to share this simple and quick recipe – Diary Free Pumpkin Spiced Almond Milk. When I was back from my recent trip down to Arizona and Sante Fe, we did a little stop over to Trader Joe’s.  It’s a great place to grab organic produce, organic dairy, and even organic canned foods and it’s affordable.

Healthy Poblano Chili and Bean Soup

I’ve been wanted to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico for years.  I’m not sure why. My guess is that for many, the area is a spiritual destination full of semi-precious stones and crystals and copious amounts of churches.  It’s also an area rich in history especially driving over the Rio Grande and driving through parts of Route 66.

IMG_5038-2

Here’s the thing about pancakes – they’re heavy, filling, and from a traditional sense, full of flours that provide zero nutritional value or energy. But aren’t they good???

Just Peachy Chia Pudding

Oh geez my friends, I got my husband hooked on this recipe! He’s already a lover of my classic chia pudding but add in one of his favourite fruit (peaches), and now he won’t leave me alone.  “Can you please make that peach chia pudding?”.  “I really love that peach chia pudding”.  “We have to go to the farmer’s market on Sunday to get more peaches for that chia pudding”. And, on and on he goes.
