Bowls are one of my favourite meals to make especially when I don’t have anything planned. You can make them using just about any grain (or no grain at all), protein and veggies!  They’re also easy to customize for individual preferences, like if one kid hates avocado or one person wants chicken then you can do that because you’re making everything individually.  This combo I’m sharing with you is one of my favourites! The flavours balance one another so nicely.

I’ve put together this list of post natal exercises so that you can workout in a safe but effective way after having a baby!  It can be time consuming to scroll through YouTube or Google search for workouts so I’ve done the work for you!

I purchased this program from Good for the Swole and will be starting it… today! I think it’s a great intro back into exercise after having a baby.

Sugar is a tricky bastard. A little bit can be totally enjoyable but consume too much and you can end up with headaches, bloated stomach, no energy, restless sleep and skin breakouts! Knowing how much is too much can be tricky too.

  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.

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,

I always say that wellness (and health) is a journey; it’s not about a destination.  So while I consider myself to be a healthy person, I am always looking to improve and grow!  For me healthy and wellness isn’t so much about what I weight or the exercise I do or even just the food I eat… it’s about how I feel overall! And that is something that is always going to take work.
