People often assume we eat these super fancy, home cooked meals every night... when in fact... they’re usually the most random things... like green bean casserole I tested today with a side of grilled cheese 🤷🏻♀️because this mama doesn’t like to waste food and/or I don’t feel like cooking by the time 5pm rolls around... this was my dinner tonight and my girls had “snack dinner” 👍🙌☺️ what’d you have?
I’m off for 10 days of relaxation, self care & a 5 day retreat with other like minded practitioners - immersing in learning, collaboration, self & business exploration & so much more 😊💕🙏🏻 I can’t wait to come back renewed & refreshed ❤️ I’m back in clinic from Monday 29th of October, bookings can still be made online.

I love when my meat, gluten and dairy eating husband enjoys our plant based meals as much as I do- like this one that deceivingly has a ton of flavor!

I definitely don’t mind taste testing all of the recipes that I am creating for The Goddess Guide! Most of you voted on the savory bowl, so here’s a closer look at all of that deliciousness!
I’m heading to an event with @wellnesswithedie tonight with @mindbody so follow along in stories for some of the cool things we get to do!
My breakfast looked kinda pretty today so I took a picture.
A typical breakfast for me lately has consisted of oatmeal with almond butter, pumpkin pie spice, and honey. Today I got fancy with blueberries, ground flaxseed, and sea salted dark chocolate. Not pictured are two boiled eggs I always eat alongside to start my day with some complete proteins.
Crush your day! 💪
Thank you @freskincare for sending me your amazing Detox Me mask😍After using it for about a month now, I am really happy with the results for how clean the ingredients are👌🏻 PLUS its a mask that you keep on your face for literally ONE minute (that’s my favorite part about it because I don’t usually have time to do masks otherwise!)🤷🏽♀️
I love this product because it’s specifically designed to prevent post-sweat breakouts and acne! It removes excess oils, unclogs pores, and gently purifies skin of dead cells. I’m always looking for the best way to keep my skin clear & clean after my workouts and I’ve been so happy with how easy but effective this mask is!🙌🏻
This mask is usually $54 (and a little goes a long way!) BUT you can get 25% off with the code: SHORTANDSWEET25 for the next 48 hours!! That makes it only about $40!! Link in bio. Thank you @freskincare!!🎉
One of the best ways to get nutrients in this kid's diet...smoothies! Banana, strawberry, grape, apple juice, avocado, greens powder (since I'm out of fresh greens), and very little mct oil. It makes me wonder how many weird vegetables I could throw in before he notices haha. #smoothie#nutritiousAndDelicious#toddlerFood
(Nicely) forcing myself to go workout 🏋️♀️ after a long day of 🖥, but really want to be eating one of these, drinking a glass of wine, and watching the @redsox game rn (... I guess I can wait a few hours 🙄).
The recipe for these pumpkin chocolate truffles - date-sweetened, vegan, and paleo✌🏼- is on the site and there’s a direct link in my profile. Enjoy!
Made a super yummy and delicious hot drink perfect for fall (and winter ❄️) using the brand new essential oil from #doterra , Turmeric. If you follow anything to do with health you know this spice is a powerful heavy hitter. A natural anti-inflammatory with anti-oxidant properties & it supports the metabolism & also helps to support the immune system. Since I’m feeling a bit off this week (a very rare occurrence fortunately) that’s primarily why I’ve made this yummy concoction. Plus it’s feeling awfully chilly here in Ontario.
Here’s the recipe; let me know if you try it out and what your thoughts are!
1.5-2 cups of your fave nut mylk (I used half almond & half coconut) warmed in a pot or steamed.
1 tbsp of cacao maca powder (if you don’t have this, cacao or cocoa powder is 👍🏼👍🏼)
1-2 tsp pure maple syrup or raw honey (depends on your sweet tooth 😉) 1 tbsp coconut oil
1 drop MAX of each of the oils shown in pic. Ginger would be a great one to add as well.
Blend it up, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and snuggle into a blanket with a great book or an enlightening Netflix show (or The Good Place. Or This is us - whatever 🤗 ) and ENJOY. ✌🏼 *oils pictured: TURMERIC, CLOVE (also MAJOR anti-oxident properties in this oil plus fabulous for oral health!) BLACK PEPPER & CARDAMOM. #supernaturalfamily#falldrinks#healthycocoa#peaceloveandoils#feelingood#allnatural#nutritiousanddelicious
Mixed greens, purple cabbage, sweet peppers, radish, chicken, and micro-scallions. Colorful, fresh, nutrient-dense lunch. This works perfectly as a pack lunch too! Dressing: fresh lemon juice, olive oil, honey mustard, thyme, salt & pepper. Make it even quicker by purchasing a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken.
Creole Caesar salad with medium blackened salmon for lunch at pappadeux. Holy freaking moly... this salmon was soooooo good. I’ve never had salmon and this was so delish..I used to always get fried fish and fries from here but it just wasn’t appealing 🤷🏻♀️ I’ve literally only been wanting salads.. Caesar, Cobb, Southwest.. you name it 😁
I found this recipe on @kimcravings page, honestly so good I made them for Kid 1 and Kid 2 Sunday morning had to repeat this afternoon because they didn't last a second!!! Flourless pumpkin cookies. They are extra soft, so make sure you cool them before you hoover them! lol
2/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup pumpkin purée
2 tbsp organic coconut flour
2/3 cup coconut sugar ... @gracefoodsca your sugar!
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice 🧡
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips
As soon as they come out of the oven sprinkle a little sea salt ... trust me ... Mamma knows. Kid 2 approved ✅
Back to the recipe ...🍪
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pre heat oven to 350
Mix everything (but the chips) Then dump chocolate chips in! One more stir! Take a heaping tbsp of batter on the tray, repeat, bake, cool and eat.
Bake for 11-15 mins.
Note for the pumpkin purée 🧡 Note the pumpkin purée is a huge can organic or not, we don’t need waste so here are some options for further recipes you may use. It is pumpkin season pumpkin! I use in shakes, protein shakes, Bars, muffins, dinner recipes etc. It’s an excellent source of fibre. Refrigerated leftover pumpkin puree will last about a week. ... You can also freeze pumpkin puree in freezer safe containers. The puree will last for several months. Simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator. 🧡🧡🧡
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when it’s this lamb merguez shakshuka from @WoodsHillTable! I like to include fresh eggs from @FarmAtWoodsHill to get that extra boost of energy and Omega-3s in the morning. [📸: @arjieljosephfg]
My version of a tailgate 💁♀️
AIP pizza and @sietefoodschips instead of hotdogs.
Berkey filtered water with pink salt instead of beer.
Sitting because I’m too tired to stand.
And loving every minute of it. .
Chronic illness used to make me feel like an outsider. I felt like my needs were an inconvenience to everyone around me. A year ago I would have passed on this tailgate. I was too self conscious, too worried about my social anxiety. I missed out on a lot of things back then, but it’s okay. .
I don’t see myself as a burden anymore. I’m grateful for my illness, I adore my little lunchbox, I love the food I get to eat, I feel totally confident doing whatever I need to take care of myself 🙆♀️
If you’re looking for this kind of empowerment, I’ll be working with a select few clients in the coming months. You can join my waiting list for a free consultation in the link in my bio 😘
Jerk seasoned farm-raised salmon, sweet potato and veggies. A great all-around healthy and very nutritious meal! Farm raised salmon generally contains a lot more omega-3 acids than wild caught. It also tends to have a much lower mercury count. It’s important to consider factors like this when eating fish, or anything for that matter!
My favourite clean, armpit Routine.
What you put onto your skin, goes directly into your body!
Our SKIN is the body's LARGEST organ. Our lymphatic system is right up in there under our arms🙆🏽🙆 I have tried a few dozen ‘natural’ deodorants. Through the process, I have been disappointed with the ingredients and results. Many still contain aluminum, synthetic fragrance, parabens, and phthalates.
Society falls under the notion that skin care products are safe, and non toxic. However, most of us leave the house (men included) with nearly a dozen + products on our skin, hair, face, body and our armpits contributing to negatively impacting our health.
ROUTINE @routinecream deodorant is Canadian, all natural and proven to work for both men + women!! 22$ for 3-6 months of regular use.
Ingredients you can pronounce: Coconut oil, magnesium hydroxide (dietary magnesium), kaolin clay, corn starch, flavor oils (organic blackberry, raspberry, citrus and vanilla) , arrowroot powder, baking soda, canadian ethical beeswax, shea butter, marigold infused olive oil, vitamin E, cocoa seed butter, natural olive based emulsifiers and rosemary extract!
