I had some overripe bananas sitting on the counter that I had no idea what to do with, then it clicked. I decided to make Paleo Banana Bread.
Nutrition is very important to me, in fact it’s changed my life. Since becoming a mother I know that I need to do what’s right, not just my son but, for my health and wellness needs as well.
It’s pear season here on the North Central Coast of British Columbia, and lucky for me – I have a tree. Last year I sadly let many go to waste but this year I’m on a mission: to create delicious and healthy pear recipes that are out of the box and fun. Like these Cheddar and Pear Gluten Free Scones.
I have some exciting news to fill you all in on: Shoppers Drug Mart has made living a healthier lifestyle easier for you to accomplish. As exciting as that is, that’s not all: I’m helping them.
I’m a big fan of protein pancakes. Regular pancakes don’t fill me up (I’m an empty pit) so I usually need a little more. This recipe uses oats, Shakeology (or protein powder) and lemon essential oil and it keeps me fuelled for hours.
I’ve never wanted a deep fryer, it’s one small appliance that I know my kitchen and my body could do without. However, I will admit that from time to time I crave crispy fries with my Sweet n’ Spicy Turkey Burger or perfect hash browns with my poached eggs on the weekend; I just don’t want the grease and pain in my chest after. That’s where the T-fal Actifry comes in.
Today I say goodbye to my early – mid twenties and I’m feeling a little bittersweet. I’m usually pretty excited about birthdays, but this time around there was a little bit of dread.
The past week and a bit has been hot, really hot. It was too hot to cook and the heat was affecting my little guy’s appetite. These Cherry Popsicles were a no fail, he loved them (I’ve made a few batches since this) and I loved the fact that he wasn’t consuming any fake ingredients and refined sugar.
My son loves frozen treats. Whether it’s ice cream, freezes or popsicles he is always asking for a treat and I find myself saying no too often. I made Pineapple Popsicles with my new Zoku, and now my son can help himself whenever he wants.
