Do you have an unhealthy relationship with food?

Would you say your relationship with food is complicated? Perhaps you have good intentions to eat well but your hectic schedule takes over and so does convenience food. Or maybe you find yourself overeating snacks or desserts and feeling guilty afterwards? We live in a weight obsessed culture with tons of mixed nutrition messages, from 'clean eating' to 'juicing', to all the different diets (keto, plant based, paleo and the list goes on). All these mixed messages about what to eat and our obsession with diet (I would argue) has led to unhealthy relationships with food and ultimately disordered eating. Disordered eating has been identified as an unhealthy and obsessive relationship with food

Blueberry Power Bites

I (like most people) love a sweet treat.....and I love nothing more than a sweet treat that is actually good for you. These blueberry power bites are loaded with all the good stuff (aka fibre, protein, healthy fats, and NO added sugars). Enjoy these power bites as a mid day snack to get the energy boost you need to power through the rest of your day. Ingredients: - 10 dates (soaked) - 1 cup dried Blueberries (soaked) - 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut - 1/3 cup almond butter (can be any nut or seed butter, use a seed butter to keep it school friendly) - 1 cup rolled oats - 3 tbsp. hemp seeds Directions: Place dates and blueberries in a bowl. Fill with warm water and let soak for 30-60 mi

Berry Delicious Muffins

Happy LOVE Day friends! Spreading the love today with some heart healthy muffins, full of fibre and antioxidants. I have always had a sweet tooth and I also love to bake, so naturally I like to create healthy sweet treats. I am pretty much obsessed with homemade scones, so these muffins are a play on scones. Similar to scones they aren't super sweet and great with a warm beverage. Give these a try and take some time to enjoy them with some of your loved ones. <3 Makes 12 scone styled muffins Ingredients: 1 + ½ cups whole wheat flour 2 tbsp. hemp seeds 1 tsp. cinnamon Sprinkle of salt 1 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda ¼ cup vegetable oil 2 eggs ½ cup plain coconut yogurt 1 tsp. vanilla

Chickpea and Veggie Coconut Curry

I love experimenting in the kitchen and had a craving for a coconut curry dish. I wanted something quick and vegetarian that everyone would love....and I think I found a keeper! This one pan dinner takes less than 20 minutes to make, is a vegan meal option, and is absolutely delicious. It's not only packed with flavour, but also antioxidants, protein, and fibre. This meal will leave you feeling satisfied afterwards, which means less potential for evening snacking. Serves 4 Ingredients: [if !supportLists]· [endif]1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed [if !supportLists]· [endif]1 bag veggie slaw (I used a kale, broccoli, carrot, and cabbage blend - Mann's Power Blend) [if !supportLi

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

This portobello mushroom is a hit in my home! It is ready in less than 40 minutes, tastes great, and is loaded with veggies. The best part is you don't even feel like you are eating veggies. If you have kids, get them involved in this meal (they will likely be more interested in eating it afterwards). You can get them to help stuff the mushrooms or sprinkle the cheese on top. Ingredients: 4 large Portobello muhrooms 2 tbsp. olive oil ½ sweet onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 500 g ground chicken 1 cup tomato sauce 1 cup chicken broth 1/2 cup cottage cheese 1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided Salt and black pepper to taste 2 tbsp. parsley 2 cups baby spinach 2 tsp. dried oregano Direction

Feeding your Active Child

Having a well balanced diet helps provide your child with the energy needed to fuel activity but also support growth and development. This blog post will outline the importance of macronutrients, micronutrients, and fluid intake for your active child. There are also some tips, recipes, and meal ideas to help fuel your child pre and post activity. What do the macronutrients do and how much does my child need? Carbohydrates are the most important source of fuel for active children, as they provide our body with glucose (aka sugar). Glucose can be stored in our liver and muscles and is most readily available for energy when our muscles are working. Carbohydrates should make up 45-65% of total e
