If you love creamy dressings, then you HAVE to try this recipe. Creamy dressings that you find in the grocery store are loaded with fat, sugar, and extra ingredients to make it taste good and so that it lasts for a long time in your fridge. This creamy avocado dressing still gives you that velvety texture, with simple ingredients you probably have at home!
When I was testing out this recipe, my biggest concern (after taste), was how long it will last in the fridge. As much as I want everyone to eat healthier, I know that you may not be willing to whip out your blender to make your own dressing every single day. Well, I have good news! This avocado dressing last...
Yesterday I hosted a live online webinar on How to Develop Healthy Habits (and stick to them!). I had the opportunity to share many tips on how to set yourself up for success in order to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. I am not going to be doing another webinar for at least a few months SO, I wanted to make the webinar available for everyone for the next 48 hours. If you would like to watch it, head over here to catch the replay. (Note: if you would like to download the Healthy Habits Guide I talk about in the webinar, please sign up here to receive it in your email).
I have many people contacting me daily asking me for quick tips on how to achieve their health goals, whether it is weight loss, gaining weight, or managing a health condition like PCOS or diabetes. Unfortunately, I can't fully help someone through a quick email or message. I also acknowledge that not everyone can afford to see a Registered Dietitian or Personal Trainer one on one to improve their li...
When you think of healthy eating, you may think that it means you will have to spend more money at the grocery store. This is not necessarily true! One great way to save money is by using lentils to swap out meat and poultry for a cheaper plant-based protein that is just as filling!
For my budget-friendly eat, I made Spaghetti Squash Noodles with Lentil Bolognese, inspired by Minimalist Baker. A healthier, lower carb version of your classic spaghetti and beef bolognese.
Minimalist Baker made this fabulous recipe for lentil bolognese and topped it over zucchini noodles. If you didn't already know, Minimalist Baker is one of my favourite food bloggers. Everything she makes is magic. I absolutely loved how she replaced ground beef with lentils for a hearty,...
I can't believe January is almost coming to an end! Earlier this month, I hosted a webinar about kickstarting 2017 so it is your healthiest and happiest year yet. Fast forward a few weeks, I wanted to bring you another webinar on How to Develop Healthy Habits and Stick to Them. In this webinar, I will be going through specific strategies and tips to help you improve your healthy eating habits and incorporate exercise into your daily routine.
If you have read any of my blog posts, joined any of my webinars, or have seen any of my social media posts, you know I am all about saying goodbye to fad diets, gimmicks, and "quick fixes".
I repeatedly get messages and emails about how to lose weight the *FAST*, *QUICK*, and *EASY* way. Although there is no magic pill that will help you transform your weight, health, or lifestyle...I will be sharing tips and tricks to make it a lot easier to get there.
I'm going to get straight to the point today. If you want to be healthier, eat healthier, feel healthier, you need to eat more vegetables. There's no way around it. For some people, that isn't an issue but then there is also a group of people that "don't like vegetables". I hear it pretty often and the first couple of times I was surprised to hear it. How can someone just not like vegetables? All of them? There are SO many varieties, how can you just sign off a whole category of food?! That got me thinking though...
If you don't (think) you like vegetables, it's probably because you have been eating them all wrong. Before I got in the kitchen experimenting, I was primarily exposed to vegetables in two ways:
Overcooked vegetables in the form of curries.
"Salads" that consisted of iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots.
If that's what you think when you think of vegetables, I don't blame you for not liking vegetables either!
But wait!!! There is hope! That's why I'm here! I'm...
Snacks are a great way to relieve hunger in-between meals, especially when you are on the go. The only problem is that when you get that "snack attack", the only options available are usually the classic bag of chips, cookies, muffins, or other items that are high calories and low in nutrients. With all of these unhealthy options readily available, you may not have realized that snacking can be a way to incorporate the important nutrients your body needs.
Today I am sharing 12 dietitian approved recipes for Energy Bites that will satisfy your hunger AND your sweet tooth.
Energy bites are a great healthy snack because they are convenient, full of nutrients and can be made in advance. I have shared a couple recipes for Energy Bites on my blog before but today I am coming at you with even more delicious flavour combinations! If you haven't made Energy Bites yet, you have no excuse now because here are 12 different dietitian-approved recipes :
Yesterday, I hosted a live webinar on How to Finally Achieve Your Health Goals in 2017. It was a great opportunity to speak to many of you and talk about how you can improve your health over the next 12 months.
I receive inquiries daily about how to lose weight, how to manage PCOS symptoms, and many other health related questions. Unfortunately, I can't give a complete answer to fully help you in a few simple sentences. I also understand that it can be expensive to see a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and that usually prevents a lot of people from taking the next step to improving their health.
