The BEST Protein Pancakes – Low Carb // Paleo

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.

Homemade Vanilla Coconut Milk Yoghurt – vegan / gluten free

IMG_4115

YOU GUYS, this is the easiest coconut-based yoghurt that you’ll ever make! No fermenting required yet it is still loaded with probiotics which are essential for gut and immune health.


I literally did the happy dance when I made this recipe and it worked out and tasted great at the same time. And, then I thought, for a $2.00 can of coconut milk, I will never-ever-EVER have to buy store-bought coconut yoghurt again. Savings – PHEW! But, then I also get to control what I put into the yoghurt. And, as you can see, the ingredients are minimal.

Muir Glen Organics + Fire-Roasted Baked Eggs

IMG_4623

I’ve just planted my first garden that I was able to get through a local community plot. Every single item in there is GREEN (oh, except for the tomatoes and orange peppers),100% organic, and non-GMO!!  It’s just such an amazing thing to be able to grow your own food and have complete control over what you bring into your home and fridge.

Now, growing your own vegetables isn’t possible for everyone. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t play a big part in ensuring that you’re bringing the best quality ingredients into your home.

Palm Springs Recap + Super Power Breakfast Muffins (vegan/gluten-free)

I’ve just returned from a trip to California where we spent some time in Palm Springs/Desert and a couple of days in the Newport Beach area.  It was nice to finally get a stretch of time to rest and relax.

Normally, when we’re travelling, we do like to stay in hotels that may have kitchen’s available and we really, REALLY love Marriott’s Shadow Ridge Resort in Rancho Mirage – isn’t it gorgeous?  We’re now hopping over to The Westin Mission Hills Gold Resort and Spa mostly because I’m curious since I work with a Westin Hotel myself. But, what I love about Westin Hotels is that they are a very health conscious hotel chain with state-of-the-art exercise equipment and lots of health food options that include an array of superfoods and even their own juice bar.

Okay, if you missed the big ta-da, my website went down for a few weeks.

I spend my early mornings and weekends writing to you all and hoping to inspire you to a healthier you.

Body Love + Body Confidence w/ Liis Windischmann (Part 1)

Hi there!

I’m so glad that you stopped by today because I have such an important message and story to share. In fact, it’s something that I haven’t shared before. But, first, you all know that I’ve been working on my nutrition certification, right? Getting up in the early mornings (before my day job) to help develop plans for women to address and support their health concerns is what drives me!  I just love it.
