Chefs around the world are dabbling in variations of this classic dish but an authentic Spanish gazpacho should be a smooth purée of fresh vegetables with a hint of garlic, pimentón and vinegar. Continue reading
I feel like I owe the last two months an apology: “Dear 2017, I’m sorry it only took me two months to undo what it took me nearly six months to achieve.” Sigh. In what can only be described as a blur of stress, sleep-deprivation and thick-headedness, I have been… Continue reading
Making your cuppa Bulletproof coffee is a bit of a time commitment, if you consider making toast a time commitment. If you have 15 minutes to Tweet from the Seat, then you have five minutes to brew your morning coffee. Continue reading
Grown-up snack wars. It’s a thing. It’s the battle that ensues in the middle of the afternoon when you’re hankering for something bad-but oh-so-good and instead convince yourself to be all healthy. Face it: reality bites. Or, rather reality snack bites.
Today I didn’t eat lunch for some reason — distracted, much? — so I’m feeling rather peckish. So now I find myself resisting the urge to throw myself into the bag of peanut M&Ms. But I won’t. Because adulting is full of these tough decisions. Trust me, I know the drill.
Don’t Let Reality Snack Bites Bite You in the Arse
Instead, I make sure that I have a bunch of bite-sized, nutritious nibbles in plain view, on the counter, at all times. This way when reality snack bites attack, I bite back with the healthy options. Among my faves are:
Solar Raw Foods Ultimate Kale Chips
Love these Ultimate Kale Chips from Solar Raw Foods
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bites
Hemp hearts are so versatile and making them into snack bites was genius
Nature’s Path Love Crunch Granola
It’s takes ALL THE WILL POWER not to eat the entire bag of granola
Want to know what I dig about these products and how they help me beat the reality snack bites? Go watch my video!
Got a favourite kick-your-cravings-to-the-curb snack? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Truth be told, I am a big smoothie fan. In fact, I’m racking up the ‘frequent flyer’ miles for the number of times I’ve visited Booster Juice this summer. But going ‘green’ in my own kitchen, well, that’s just a whole new bag of spinach. Continue reading
I first met Kathy at Blissdom Canada in the fall of 2014 prior to my health epiphany when my focus was less ‘workout-of-the-day’ and more ‘which flavour of Ben & Jerry’s am I going to demolish tonight’? Continue reading
Use the bounty of fall produce to introduce your family to new flavours and teach them the difference between a parsnip and a rutabaga. You never know, there just might be a new vegetable in there that they like! Continue reading
As much for assisting my failing memory as for helping out my healthy foodie peeps, this is my fail-proof AND fool-proof recipe for kale chips. I can’t keep them in stock. My kids…my KIDS! devour them. Even when they are over-cooked (which happened when I overshot the oven temperature. Like… Continue reading
