Your Ultimate Green Power Smoothie

So I know I did a thorough smoothie post a while back, but in light of recent information that I learned I thought it was necessary to follow up with an additional post. Because fruit smoothies are so high in sugar content, having them in the morning when your body hasn’t expended much energy yet means that they will spike your sugar levels, and all of the excess can get stored as glycogen, which is harder to use and burn off later.

Rethinking the Energy Bar

When I started to work out on a regular basis a couple of years ago, I wanted to fuel up beforehand so I could perform the best that I could. The simplest answer to me was energy bars, so I went to the local grocery store and picked some up. I definitely noticed the energy boost that they gave me, but I’ve also learned a lot since then and so now I want to unravel some of the truth behind energy bars. Continue reading

The scenery was one of my favourite parts

Hello again! I hope you all had another great week. This week’s post is coming a little late today because I was driving/sitting in a car all day, coming home from a wonderful little adventure.

Ever since I visited the gorgeous city of Banff, nestled in the Canadian Rockies, last year, it’s been one of my favourite places, so that’s where we headed! Continue reading

Happy Sunday everyone, did you all jump your clocks ahead an hour this morning?

Welcome to March everyone! I know everyone says this, but I can’t believe we’re already onto our third month of 2013, like seriously, where did the last two months go? The good news for me, however, is that this means that I’m over halfway through this semester and summer is approaching! But before that happens I still have to get through all of my assignments, not to mention the relentless rain that is spring on the West Coast, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Continue reading

Hello fellow bloggers! I hope you have been having a wonderful first few weeks of the new year and have been successful so far in working towards new goals that were perhaps inspired by the fresh start. As for myself, I’ve gotten back into the swing of school and have been working on eating clean and healthy, particularly when I’m on the go on campus (my Healthy Cookies provide a great go-to snack here; haven’t heard of them yet? Check it out here!). Continue reading
