Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

I don’t even know where to start. It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve spent any time writing, recipe testing and motivating, through my blog! Let’s start with where I left off! I left off with an 11 week old puppy – who is currently sitting at 11 months and 80lbs! I left off…

Dinner Salad

Salad for dinner was something I started enjoying back as a vegetarian. Yes, vegetarian. Was a long time ago and while I feel great not eating meat, that is not something I’m keen to do again. As a kid salad was part of every dinner, it was not the main meal. Salads for any meal…

Tired All the Time?

Ironically on two separate occasions the issue of “feeling tired all the time” came up. This is a feeling that I am not completely familiar with.  While I take my B vitamins (B100 and B12) iron because I’m deficient, have a coffee in the morning and often a green tea in the afternoon, I attribute…

Lessons in Gratitude & Moose Ramen

Each day we have things we need to accomplish, things that have to be done in order to sustain ourselves. Working. Eating. Sleeping…but we also have things that we want to accomplish.     One thing I learned several years ago was the difference between ‘wanting’ and ‘shoulding’. You’ll notice that I rarely say things such…

The Biggest Lesson I’ve learned…Being Single

My friend Eddie pointed out that in my post about what I’ve learned since being single (#singlesowemingle), I missed one key point.  He said that when we are single we begin to develope our sense of self and figure out who we are. But the trick is not to lose that when getting back into…

Beachbody – working out at home

Since January 1st, 2015 I have worked out almost every single day. On February 16th I decided to try something new and joined Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix. I had some friends who were doing it with great success and I felt I needed to get my portion control under wraps. You know I love to…

Chicken, Chard and Chickpea Curry

While this recipe didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, it’s still very tasty and easy to make. My friend came over for dinner and I thought this would be a lovely, warming dish to enjoy on a Saturday night in. I made the recipe as per the Pinterest post I found – however…

Flourless Banana Muffins

While I rarely crave sweets, lately with the clean eating I’ve been doing It’s been a bit out of control. Craving sugar and fatty foods but trying to find healthy alternatives has been fun to explore. With my birthday coming up in 4 days and with most of my friends on a cleanse, we are…

Thai Quinoa Salad – Meal planning for the win!

Since I recently went on a Facebook break I have spent more time on Pinterest scoping out recipes and workouts, among other things. I have started to try and be better at only buying a limited amount of food to really avoid throwing stuff out. Isn’t that the worst? The leftovers from my Thai Turkey…

Clean Eating 2015

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! As some of you know I spent several weeks in Kelowna visiting family and I just got back to town a few days ago. It was amazing to have the time to recharge and the time with my nephews and my niece was unreal. While I was away I spent…

Long Overdue – Beef Rendang

Hi everyone! How are you? I know it’s been awhile and I also know that I’ve been saying that a lot lately on my posts. Sadly life has taken a few twists and turns and rather than having time and energy, I’ve had neither. Emotionally I’ve been sensitive. Mentally I’ve been exhausted. Physically I’ve been…

Best Kale Salad…I’ve ever made

Something about fresh, homegrown vegetables that I absolutely love. Not only does it take me back to my child hood but it reminds me why I want to be in the country to raise my own family. My darling friend Maz stocked me up! I not only devoured all her homegrown cherry tomatoes, but she…
