Virtual Coffee Date # 1

IT’S A BREAKFAST AFFAIR

I am sure we have all heard it before: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Right? I know a lot of people who ‘aren’t hungry’ or do not feel like making breakfasts in the mornings. I was one of them. It took me a long time to instill breakfast into my routine….

Quick early morning breakfast ideas

  Twice a week, I am up at the crack of dawn to get to my class in Toronto. Literally at the crack of dawn- my first alarm goes off at 5:00AM and second goes off at 5:15AM. As someone who can’t go a morning without breakfast, I have to find the perfect balance between…

Coconut Chia Pudding

Happy Tuesday Friends! In my Nutrition class today, we learned that chia Seeds are a powerful superfood providing us with crucial omega-3 fatty acids. Being a vegetarian, we often lack in omega-3 acids which are mostly abundant in fish. Omega-3 helps increase high-density lipoprotein or “the good cholesterol”. In this recipe I paired chia seeds…

YOUR HAPPY WEIGHT!

  It is really hard to talk about weight, especially for women. In fact, I was very uncomfortable as I was deciding on this topic for my next blog. But I think body image issue is really important to me and I am blessed to have a platform where I can share my experiences and struggles….

BLACK BEAN BURGER SALAD

Hi Friends! I just got home after a super long day and I am starving. While I love playing in the kitchen, it is not something I can do when I am tired and really hungry. When it comes to cooking weeknight meals, all I am thinking to myself is: “I ain’t got time for…
