Meal Prep Jan 2 2017 + Lentil Soup Recipe

First meal prep of 2017! Typically I’d have some kind of fun meal prep plan to ring in the new year but this year I’m sneezing and sniffling and full of mucus and my belly is so heavy I can hardly stand long enough to to cook an egg. Not ideal. Hahaha. I still need… Continue reading Meal Prep Jan 2 2017 + Lentil Soup Recipe

Meal Prep Nov 20th 2016

So last week’s vegetarian protein heavy meals didn’t work well for my digestion. At least I’m pretty sure that was the problem. That’s the second time I tried to rely more on plant-based protein for most meals and really didn’t feel great. Looks like as much as I’d like to cut back on the animal… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 20th 2016

I went to town on veggies this week! I had a major hankering for veggies and fruit the week so that’s what we are having. I decided on a ton of roast root veggies plus greens. For lunches I roasted all the following with a little olive oil and Herbamere seasoning in one pan: Heirloom carrots… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 6th 2016

Meal Prep Sept 11 2016

I’ve come to realize that now that I’m preggers I need to do meal prep first thing in the day. My stamina sucks these days and I’m so tired by late afternoon! I had plans with my mamma this morning to shop for a body pillow (as mentioned in my latest preggie update). By the time… Continue reading Meal Prep Sept 11 2016

Happy Labour Day! Oh long weekends. *heart* I did meal prep in bits an pieces this weekend, it just worked out better for my energy level, mood and schedule. Sunday morning  I baked a cake. Juan lost a dear friend in a motorcycle accident on Saturday night and we found out Sunday morning. It’s all… Continue reading Meal Prep Sept 4/5th 2016

15 Weeks Pregnant

Well my last post was all about how great I was feeling. I had an awesome workout last weekend and was feeling full of energy then boom Monday. I got the worst headache I’ve probably every had. Brutal! It could be described as a cluster migraine headache and lasted from Monday until Wednesday night. The… Continue reading 15 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep August 1st 2016

I like to meal prep in the late afternoon on Sundays (or holiday Mondays 🙂 ) so that I make dinner at the same time. This saves me from having to cook and clean the kitchen more than necessary. The cleaning part is not my favourite and my hubby would say not my forte either… Continue reading Meal Prep August 1st 2016

6 weeks Pregnant

I hit 6 weeks this past Thursday!  This somewhat of a tiny milestone in that it’s halfway through my 1st trimester. Miscarriage is still common at this point but I’m staying positive and praying for a healthy happy pregnancy and baby. Um that’s crazy, I find it such a crazy thing to say that I’m… Continue reading 6 weeks Pregnant

Oh summer how I love you! This weather is amazing. The sun feeds my soul. You? I was lucky it was great out today because my oven isn’t working again! Gah! I think there something is wrong with the pilot but not sure yet. Luckily BBQ to the rescue. I did everything on the BBQ… Continue reading Meal Prep June 26th 2016

Meal Prep May 1st 2016

Today is our saf camp and I will be busy all afternoon so I pulled together a pretty quick and basic meal prep so I at least have protein and some starchy carbs ready. Protein sources are usually the hardest to grab on the go so I find if I at least have those pre cooked… Continue reading Meal Prep May 1st 2016

Meal Prep April 24th 2016

This past week was emotional and pet centric. If you follow my facebook and IG you’ll know I had to put my sweet 18 year old kitty, Sasha, down. She had been declining for the past 6 months but Monday she took a turn and was in bad shape. The vet encouraged me to choose… Continue reading Meal Prep April 24th 2016

Why I’m Flexible Dieting (IIFYM) & Why You Might Like it too

I currently subscribe to a flexible dieting approach to nutrition and have been for several years. Flexible dieting is also known as IIFYM (if it fits your macros) and my coach and mentor, Dr. Layne Norton and the BioLayne team are teaching the world the science behind it all one day at time. Flexible dieting… Continue reading Why I’m Flexible Dieting (IIFYM) & Why You Might Like it too

Happy Family day beauties! Happy Valentine’s day too 🙂 This weekend was jam packed with family and friends and such a great break. The cold was little tough especially for my little fur babies but we managed by staying in quite a bit. I wrote a blog post while stuck inside on Saturday. We had… Continue reading MealPrep Feb 15th 2016

I bought a whack of sweet potatoes and yams this weekend. I couldn’t resist the beautiful variety of kinds at Whole Foods so I stocked up. Garnet, Jewel, White and Japanese  (also like Caribbean sweet potato) with the white flesh and red/purple skin. They are a little more starchy and firm than the orange sweet… Continue reading Meal Prep January 24th 2016

HiYa beauties! Today’s meal prep was a quickie. We have a busy afternoon and an event tonight so I really keep thing simple. Last weeks meals were really delicious but unfortunately by gut wasn’t very happy by the end of the week. I think the curry spice is at fault. Boohoo because that curry I… Continue reading Meal Prep Jan 17th

Meal Prep December 6th 2015

I finally had a chance to prep a decent amount food. The last two weeks have been really off schedule for me and that drives me crazy. As much as I follow a flexible eating approach and can grab food from anywhere I still really prefer eating my own meals. I don’t always make full… Continue reading Meal Prep December 6th 2015

Meal Prep November 22 2015

Hi 🙂 Today’s meal prep was a bit off my usual because I had my sisters (and sweet nephew and new puppy) coming to visit. I didn’t want to spend much time in the kitchen today so I originally figured I would’t make much. I ended up whipping up a few things that were more… Continue reading Meal Prep November 22 2015

Happy Saturday beauties! I’m cooking this afternoon because I’m busy with my sister’s birthday party tomorrow. Actually next weekend I’ll have to do the same because I’ll be in Montreal judging the Physique Canada show. I’m now 4 weeks into my reverse diet and happily enjoying more food. Funny enough my weight has dropped which… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 15th 2015

Happy Sunny Sunday!! 🙂 Today’s meal prep was very fertility focused haha. I’m sticking to my modified autoimmune nutrition protocol but also conscious of nourishing and fertility boosting nutrition. I’ve got a really detailed article coming up this week about fertility in general so I won’t go into that much today. I’ll get right to… Continue reading Meal Prep November 8th 2015

Meal Prep Oct 12th 2015 + Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving beauties! I adore thanksgiving. I think it’s my favourite holiday. I love the time of year, the family grating together and the traditional meal. I also love that it’s not gift giving event or any celebration of one specific thing. It’s so peaceful. I took an extra long weekend so I could really… Continue reading Meal Prep Oct 12th 2015 + Thanksgiving!
