Food FOMO


I need to stop my Food FOMO (fear of missing out). I know when my family gathers around a hot, cheesy pizza, I feel like I’m missing out big time. When a friend orders an ice cream cone I look at it lustily and start to drool. While I really dislike having food intolerances (dairy & gluten) that I didn’t even…

Hemp Hearts Review


I remember making hemp necklaces at a church function and giggling because it was “practically a drug.” Ha ha! Nerd alert! Hemp is making its way into the healthy living world and as a Sweat Pink/Fit Approach Ambassador, I was asked to try and review Manitoba Harvest‘s Hemp Hearts. I am always down to try and support Canadian companies and…

Bone Broth- Sounds Gross to Me!


I love new health and fitness things and I love trying them all. I tried oil pulling (I don’t have the patience), kettle bells, spinning, I force down kombucha when my tummy’s acting up, green smoothies, coconut water, hot yoga- I’ll try anything if it’s supposed to be good for you. But I draw the line at drinking bone broth-…

4 Tips for Hosting Dinner Guests with Food Restrictions


It’s the holidays! Time for music, crowds, parties and food! As someone with food restrictions, going to dinner or a party at someone’s house is a bit of a gamble as to whether I’m going to eat or not. I am gluten & lactose intolerant which restricts a lot of dishes and because I’m not comfortable asking the hostess to…

I first heard of Kooee! Super Snacks through Girls Gone Sporty and I thought it sounded like a perfect product for me (Jerky Trail Mix) so I asked the company to send a few sample packs. KOOEE! Jerky Trail Mix is a super healthy snack.  It’s high in protein, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and has no added sugar, preservatives, nitrates or anything…

There’s An Alien Inside of Me!


After our winter hike I had a moment of weakness. I was starving, it was cold and I ate a great big Dairy Queen double cheeseburger. I decided it was worth a stomach ache and enjoyed every tasty bite. Afterwards, I felt slightly nauseous but not too bad and I couldn’t believe my luck! But then Monday rolled around and the nausea…

I finally bought a spiralizer!


I have been reading about zucchini noodles for quite awhile now and FINALLY bought one for $15 on Amazon. I goggled how to make them and this is what I did: Peel and cut off the ends (duh!) Send through spiralizer. There was a cap thing that looked like it should help you twist the ends all the way through…

So Delicious Holiday Drinks


For anyone who follows me on Twitter, you would know I am currently obsessed with So Delicious’s Coconut Yoghurt! It has the taste and texture of real yogurt and makes such a great snack when you toss some whole almonds in. I loved it so much I approached So Delicious asking if they had any other products I could try…

Adventures in Container Gardening


Ryan and I are really into the Walking Dead. I always like to put myself in the character’s situations and wonder how I would fare. Over the winter I was telling Ryan that in the event of a zombie apocalypse that we would be okay meat wise because he can hunt and fish but neither of us can grow anything.…

Give your muscles the protein they crave. Recharge and repair with Vega Sport Protein Bar post-workout, so you can do it all again, sooner. Non-GMO, gluten-free…

Matcha Green Tea Packs Major Punch


*DISCLAIMER- This product was given to me by the company but my opinions are my own* This post is long overdue but I wanted to have several matcha soy or almond lattes before stating that matcha green tea packs more punch than coffee. As a former Seattle-ite saying there is something better than coffee is a big deal. I was approached by…

Matcha Soy Latte


I have found my favourite matcha recipe! The matcha soy latte is tasty and one cup packs more energy than three or fours cups of coffee- I’m not exaggerating! And it’s an easy recipe! I know! I know! I look so beautiful in the mornings. I’ve had a matcha soy latte for a couple days in a row now and…

Sparkling Matcha Drink


My adventures continue with my Organic Green Matcha Powder from Kiss me Organics. I decided to try the Sparkling Matcha and see how it tasted. THE VERDICT While the drink didn’t taste bad, it wasn’t tasty enough to want to make this a regular drink. However, like Saturday when I had matcha pancakes, I was FULL of all day energy…

Matcha Green Pancake Recipe


I was approached by a rep from Kiss Me Organics to try out Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. I’ve had matcha green tea smoothies before but when I got the powder it came with a huge recipe guide with several recipes for cocktails, smoothies, health shots, pancakes, meat recipes, and so much more. I had no idea there was so…

Try Guava in Your Smoothies!


I have always loved guava juice. When we took family vacations to Hawaii my mom would always but us guava juice and it was delicious. When I saw a box of guava for sale I decided to try the actual fruit. Here are some health benefits of this tasty fruit: Improves immunity Guavas contain four times the Vitamin C content…

Best Gluten & Dairy Free Option in Lethbridge- Cafe Verde


Eating out has changed a lot since I have had to start eating gluten and dairy free. Burger joints are out, I have to be careful with Indian (a lot of cream) and I am pretty much limited to salads at all other restaurants. Which is why I am currently obsessed with Cafe Verde in Lethbridge! On Mayor Magrath, tucked…
