Energy Bites

Let’s get back to food, shall we? I’ve been distracted with life lately so much so that I haven’t been putting aside time for writing and recipe making. With exams done and the craziness of life subsided for the next week or so, I woke up early this morning with a few hours to spare before going to a rowing class so I thought I would take this time to get back into it! Read More »

Superfood N’Oatmeal

After a week of feeling completely off, which female hormones are to blame, I finally feel like myself again. I spent the weekend with the people I love most visiting friends and family, went to spin class everyday and ate foods that made me feel happy and nourished. With school coming to an end in just a few short 5 weeks its time for me to buckle down with my studying and exam prep. Nonetheless, a rest weekend before the next couple of weeks of craziness was necessary and much indulged. Read More »

Heart Chakra Balancing Green Smoothie

In honour of Valentine’s Day, I am sharing with you my heart chakra balancing green smoothie. When we take a look at the chakras, more specifically the fourth chakra which is also known as the heart chakra, it is located at the center of the chest and includes the heart as one of its main body systems.  The colour associated with the heart chakra is green, hence the GREEN smoothie! Imagine if we all gave out greens for Valentine’s Day instead of sugar-filled chocolates and sweets! Maybe from this post I will ignite a movement for next year! 😉

Let’s Talk

 

As someone who has struggled with anxiety, I know how challenging it can be to speak out and ask for help. Growing up with type one diabetes has been one of the greatest challenges I have had to face, but also one of the greatest gifts I have been given in my life. It has granted me the knowledge and awareness of how the everyday choices that I make have an affect on my health, both physically and mentally, it has allowed me to meet so many incredible people in the community and has guided me to live out my passion in life to help others.Read More »

The Importance of Drinking Water

As a Pisces, which is a water sign (yes, I just went there), I am naturally attracted to water. I feel at ease and happy when I am near water. The mere sight of water can have immense healing benefits for the body.  Think of how we use hot tubs for hydrotherapy or even bubble baths to soothe our mind and body after a long day at work. Water plays an important role in our health on many different levels.Read More »

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I always struggle with what to write at the beginning these posts; this one is no different. I’m going to go off topic a little here and share with you a quick story. In early December last year, I went on a last minute vacation to Europe. Literally, I booked my flight and within less than two weeks I was landing in Lisbon, Portugal. I had booked the trip right in the middle of one of my school’s biggest classes and I had a final exam and assignment due the day after I returned from my trip. I promised myself I would complete the assignment and make all my study notes before my departure, which I did, and that I would study while travelling, which I did not. YOLO. Read More »

Creamy Avocado Pesto Spaghetti Squash Pasta

Last night I hopped on a video call with a new friend from across the pond in the U.K. Some of you might already know him, Sid from Team Bike Beyond. We have known each other as our Instagram pseudonyms for the last two years and every now and then would message each other with words of encouragement and comment on each others shared love for coffee and bikes. Earlier this week I reached out to Sid asking him about a ketogenic diet. Sid was ecstatic to speak with me about the subject, so much so, that we were on a call for over 2 hours!Read More »
