I found myself struggling, and could not get off the hamster wheel. This is familiar territory for anyone grappling with stress. And am not talking about the good stress -- a type of mild stress that can inspire you to achieve a given task or goal. Am referring to its evil twin; the one that drags you down.

Smoothies can be a great quick and easy meal on the go, but without a good source of protein, they can leave you feeling hungry 30 minutes later. I often use Greek yogurt for that very reason, but recently I've had a lot of clients looking for a vegan protein option, so I got to testing.
A lot of you have expressed wanting to include more plant based eating as part of your nutrition goals. For many of you, this doesn't necessarily mean going 100% vegan or vegetarian, but just including more plants altogether. In line with that, this recipe is not vegetarian, but likely includes a lot less meat that you would typically include and way more veggies, without sacrificing the flavor or satisfaction of the dish.

Hangovers often leave you with a combination of less-than-desirable symptoms. Nausea, stomach upset, headache... no thanks. Although there's no guarantee of a diet that will cure you of your pain, you may be able to offer some relief.
With New Year's Eve approaching I thought no better time for my first ever cocktail on the blog! I thought I might as well start out with my favorite, the Moscow Mule.

It seems fancy and decadent, but it is so easy to throw together! Once you get your veggies diced up, which you could even do the night before, it's pretty much throwing ingredients into your pan and then leaving the flavours to simmer away while you enjoy Christmas morning with your loved ones.
With all the parties and family gatherings, it's easy to lose track of how much we're consuming, including the amount of sodium we ingest.
