My End to Dieting

Well world, shortly after Thanksgiving, I decided to throw in the towel on the vegan diet. It was a good run while it lasted, but after 5 months, it wasn’t for me. Even though I was quite aware of my macro and micro nutrients, and properly substituting my protein / vitamin intake, I didn’t notice…

How to Become Vegan

What started off as a 2 week vegan “challenge”, has turned into an eating lifestyle I’ve stuck with for a few months now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not full blown PETA vegan. I’ve eaten meat all my life, my blog is plastered with recipes of meat and dairy, my hubby is a power lifter…

Why am I Always Mad?

I consider myself calm and collected, but there was a time when I would always get mad, even over little things; and I began to question why… why am I always mad? If you’ve ever asked yourself the same question, or if family and friends pick up on your pissy aura, know that it is NOT…

How to Make a Breakfast Bowl

When it comes to breakfast bowls, they are incredibly easy to make when wanting to eat healthier and on a time-crunch. Here I will touch on the more sweeter version of the breakfast bowl, and introduce more savory bowl options in another post.

Manifested Dis-Ease

Summer 2014, I noticed a change in my period, which would last more than usual, and turned to lasting 2 weeks… 2 weeks turned to a month, and Aunt Flow began coming and going as she pleased.

Dealing with Depression

It took some thought to share what I had been going through.
Mostly because I was your average happy, bubbly, high energy kinda-girl, and didn’t want to share this part of my life, however, that turned out to be the reason why I decided to share this part of me with you…

3 Years Later and I’m back

After disconnecting myself from social media, and shutting my blog down for 3+ years now, I’ve made a return, and decided to share what I’ve been going through. It’s a lot to explain (a lot of real talk), so I will be sharing it through the following posts: Dealing with Depression how a lot of…

Tea Leaf Co Review

I actually came across Tea Leaf Co. by fluke, as I was searching for loose leaf teas that organic, and local! And wow what a find! I am a tea drinker and I like my teas…. I know my teas, I have preferences, and dislikes, and Tea Leaf Co provides such a great selection of loose…

Types of Meditation

Meditation is hard work, and it’s no surprise why many people give up after attempting it a few times. You have probably asked (or wondered) what type of meditation is the best, or what type of meditation is the most effective.  It simply comes down to the meditation you feel you can connect with, and…

Hand Mudras for Meditation

In my post How to Meditate, I briefly mentioned hand mudras during meditation, which I cover in this post. You are probably familiar seeing statues of Buddha’s with different hand gestures, or seeing someone meditating or doing yoga, positioning their hands a certain way. The most common mudra you may see is the Anjali Mudra…

How to Meditate

If there is one thing I truly appreciate, its meditating. People tend to think of meditation as sitting in a quiet room, in lotus position, with your eyes closed, saying “om” Like many people, I was weary on how to meditate, and giving reasons like “I don’t have time”, or “I can’t sit still”. Truth is,…

Mama Earth Organics Review

When I moved out to Durham, farmers markets had closed for the season, and I still wanted to commit my health to organic and local fruits and veggies, so I signed up to Mama Earths Organics food delivery service. They provide different basket sizes to order (I’ll get into that in a bit), but my…

Self Motivation

Ever lack the motivation to do anything? Working out, be social, deal with the kids, work. We’ve all been there (are there), but the #1 key in getting your motivation back is doing something you want to do… that’s right – you! Many people (myself included), tend to put others first, or completely slack in doing something for myself….

Detox, Diets and Cleanses

When in conversation on living a healthy lifestyle, whether with friends/family or people I meet, diets, cleanses and detoxing always come up. One of the major misconceptions is being misinformed on either 3. Detoxing, removes unhealthy toxins from the body Cleansing, cleans out specific organs (colon, liver, kidneys, digestive tract) to excrete waste (this also includes supplement cleansing)…

Well.ca Review

Well.ca is my most favorited health, beauty and skin care store online! Since moving away from the busy-ness of downtown and to the burbs, there is not much selection, when it comes to a vast array of health related products. It was so easy to find anything health/food related downtown, but ordering from Well.ca makes it…

How to Eat Clean

When it comes to social media, I think 95% of my food images are hashtagged with #CleanEating and #EatingClean; and if you are an avid follower of healthy related accounts, you’ll notice most pictures usually depict healthy meals, or meal prepping. The first step to clean eating is cutting out the “bad foods” such as processed…
