Something that we can all struggle with from time to time - motivation. Especially when it comes to making healthy choices, with the ultimate goal of developing a healthy relationship with food so you can feel your best and improve your quality of life. One of the major things that has a crappy effect on our motivation is our mindset - you know, the 'all or nothing' mentality that causes you to feel guilty when you get hangry and demolish a donut or two, and/or a whole bag of
When you’re at the grocery store deciding between which products to buy, how often do you base your decision on the nutrition label? Maybe you’re mostly label savvy but still have some questions, or maybe the label still looks like gibberish to you. So how do we know if a product is “good” or “bad” for us? We use these terms loosely, because there really are no good or bad foods. There are more nutritious, and less nutritious ones, and there is a time for each in a healthy di
Research shows that incorporating less meat, and more plant-based meals into your diet can contribute to a wide range of health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic disease, better digestion, and even weight loss. Going completely plant-based is doable for some people, however, the reality is that eating fully plant-based is not realistic for many others (due to food preferences, lifestyle, etc.). And no judgement here! People have eating habits and preferences fo
The Holidays are an exciting time of year; lots of joy, get-togethers, and traditions. However, with the Holidays often comes an over-abundance of high calorie foods such as baked goods, sauces, gravies, chips, beverages, etc. Research shows that the average person will gain 7-10 lbs over the holidays!! Yes, it does add up, which is why it’s important to have some tips and strategies in your pocket to help with not over-eating. Tip # 1 – Focus on keeping weight stable instead
Today I am going to share something a little bit different with you. It may not be food or nutrition related per say, but it is most certainly wellness related. Managing stress and anxiety also makes it easier to develop healthy habits, which is what I'm all about of course. You might have (or might not have) noticed, but lately I have been working on more video posts, as I feel that it is more engaging for people to be able to see me and hear my message. However, writing als
Summer is coming to an end, and if you're like me, you're feeling like...WHERE did it even go?
We ate, we drank (well many of us did anyway), we relaxed, and then we ate some more. And now it’s time to get back on track (sorry...I'm not the happiest about it either!). The reality for many is that September and October can be one of the most stressful times of the year. The new school year and/or coming off of summer vacation brings changes to routines, homework, the start o
Snacks such as energy bites, energy balls, protein bars, and granola bars used to be more aimed for hikers who are on the go for long periods of time, or extreme athletes on-the-go. Now they are becoming more mainstream and used as snacks, and that’s okay, it’s just important to use them in the right way depending on your goals. Hey you, speaking of goals. Need some help and support in reaching your health and wellness goals? We all need a little support sometimes! For a limi
Do we all know the dreaded feeling of being ‘hangry’? I think we do, but just in case... Urban Dictionary definition (because that counts right?): “When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both. An amalgum of hungry and angry invented to describe that feeling when you get when you are out at a restaurant and have been waiting over an hour to get the meal that you have ordered”.
My definition of being hangry: That point where yo

Pin this post for later - http://pin.it/Fjt9c9j Protein bars used to be more aimed for hikers who are on the go for long periods of time, or extreme athletes on the go. Now they are becoming more mainstream and used as snacks, and that’s okay, it’s just important to choose the right ones, and use them in the right way depending on your goals. The protein and fibre in these bars, can help keep you full and satisfied if you need something quick to tie you over until your next m
