~Fluffy, Vegan Pumpkin Spice Pancakes~

I love fall! I have to say, its probably my favourite season, cozy sweaters, cute boots and of course all the apple pie and pumpkin spice flavours that come out.  The weather may be colder this time of year, which also makes it easier to turn to comfort foods. Hearty soups, warm beverages and bigger meals tend to be the theme during the fall season. In fact, its a really nice way to bring friends and family together for dinners, parties and gatherings that are surrounded by good food. As with fall, I also love breakfast. Its been my favourite...

~COVID-19 Nutrition Edition: What can we learn from this?~

  Planning ahead for success. How motivated are you still during this time? Do you have fitness goals in mind? Planning is a huge component of any goal, which when we reach our goals, we call it “success”. But also with this, comes another component called “motivation”. Motivation is not something we always have, especially in these days and times. Lots has changed in the last few months, even weeks.

Mornings ~How to make it the best part of your day~

Whats the best part of your morning? Do you enjoy mornings? Morning routines look vastly different for everyone. I think we should all make an effort to find small ways to enjoy the start of our day, no matter how sleepy we may be. When your body is waking up, its still in its very important stages of its sleep-wake cycle. Which means its still regulating hormones, mood and energy production for the rest of your day to come. My morning routine consists of things I love in order to be the most productive for not only that time of day,...
