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!

What This Wellness Coach Eats

I get a lot of questions about what I eat in a day so I’m here to share!

As you probably know, I follow a vegan (plant based) diet and have for over 5 years now. It makes me feel amazing! I’ve always said if it didn’t, if I felt it was no longer working for me, I would honor that and change things up but so far so good!

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?
