A while back I had the pleasure of doing a FB Live with Christina Beckett of Sleek & Sassy Nutrition! We chatted all about sugar. So today I thought I’d share the interview with you all!  I know sugar is always such a hot topic so hopefully this helps clear up some of the confusion for you.

  1. High Powered Blender – Personally I have a refurbished Vitamix and I LOVE it! I use it at least once a day. It doesn’t completely replace a food processor but for smoothies it can’t be beat.
  2. Essential Oils – I’ve linked to NYR Organic since I represent them but there are lots of great companies out there. No, there is not ONE company you must buy from or that has the “best essential oils”.

I turn 30 on July 11! The big 3-0!

Honestly, I’m excited about it.  For the most part I’m really happy with where I am in my life, at this age.  I feel comfortable going into my 30’s and that’s a good feeling.

I always make a wish list for my birthday. Not because I expect gifts but because I like lists. haha This year’s kinda made me chuckle because it’s so grown up.

Why I love chia seeds…

HIGH in nutrients, LOW in calories… making them quite the superfood! They are also great for weight loss. Get in the nutrients without “worrying” that you’re eating too many calories.

High in fiber. 1oz contains 10g of fiber! Did you know that eating at least 25g (the recommended daily amount) can help boost your metabolism by 30%!?  Fiber is also important because it helps regulate blood sugar levels and keeps inflammation at bay- two VERY important things for your health!

Since I tend to get a lot of questions about what I eat (and where to get the recipes), I thought I’d start a new series called “What This Wellness Coach Eats” where you can see what I ate in a day. As you probably know, I follow a vegan diet and have for over 5 years. It makes me feel amazing! It’s tough in the beginning because it’s so foreign but once you get the hang of it,

Ah, so excited to share this recipe with you guys!! It’s seriously a new favourite of mine (and my husband’s and my son’s!).

Fist of all, I love to bake and cookies are for sure a favourite! I grew up baking with my mom and sisters so there’s something SO comforting about it to me!  Of course, as a health-conscious person I can’t be eating sugary cookies all day every day but a treat now and then?

One thing I always recommend to anyone who is looking to get healthier or adopt a more plant-based diet is to get creative!! Think outside of your comfort zone and try new foods or even just new food combinations!  Of course a great way to do this is with cook books.  

I’ve rounded up some great vegan-friendly cookbooks… and they are all under $5!! Some are even free.

It’s no secret that vegan-friendly products are the rise! More and more people are turning to plant based products whether it’s for health reasons, the environment or for animal-rights.  One product that I’ve really seen explode is vegan eggnog!  There are SO many options now!  So I decided to try a few (okay, five) to see which one was the BEST!

I always liked eggnog growing up although I often thinned it out with some regular milk because it was SO thick.
