I love a good muffin, but usually the ones I’m drawn to may as well be a cake. So when I put together these Blueberry Matcha Muffins, I wanted to be more health conscious since we’ve been having a little more sugar than usual (heat + no AC = lots of ice cream).
I am in the middle of a “heat advisory” up here on the North Coast of British Columbia, it is hot. It’s too hot for my ritual of afternoon coffee and it’s been throwing me off. So after some inspiration from SingleJo Coffee’s Margaritaville line, I decided to make some Coconut Coffee Popsicles.
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.
I love to shop, and it’s actually something I consider myself good at. Now, if you’re thinking that being good at shopping is nothing to brag about; you’re mistaken. Saving money is nothing to sneer at, I like to stretch my hard-earned dollar as far as possible, and that is why I’m so excited about being a CAA Member and CAA Rewards.
I consider myself to be fairly knowledgable when it comes to health and nutrition. I do a lot of reading for my own personal development and to help others with my “fit biz”, and I’m also thinking about taking it a step forward and enrolling in school to become a nutritionist. I like to educate myself about nutrition as much as possible, and there is always something to learn about. I recently learned about ancient grains and the basic benefits they provide.
I remember bringing Carter home from the hospital like it was yesterday. After a month spent in the NICU, I was terrified of every germ that was in our house. I boiled everything and it was a huge and lengthy process and traveling was a little scary. I wish I had the Bert & Bratt’s portable sterilizer then.
I’m a work-at-home mom; I have two blogs, a fitness business and a house to run. Add in an active toddler, a love for DIY, and my usual chores and it’s safe to say that I run off of coffee.
When was the last time you went to a gift shop and saw the name “Randa” on a keychain, hat or water bottle? The answer is never. I have never seen my name anywhere, so I get really excited when I have the opportunity to get Carter some personalized products.
I’m a snacker, I don’t eat just three big meals a day – I like to space it out and have six “mini meals” a day (or six big snacks). Snack ideas are not always easy to come by, especially when I require protein to be a key ingredient most of the time.
