One of the best things about travelling is discovering new foods. In my recent travels (to the Hawaii Islands), I discovered acai bowls, fruit bowls, smoothie bowls - whatever you want to call them. I found these so tasty and refreshing, I'd thought I'd look up a few recipes for when I get home. They we're sooo good and full of nutrients that I just had to share with you.

 

They are filled with "super foods" (aka fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, etc.) and very easy to prepare. They make for a great snack...

I often have discussions that relates to body image and how we perceive ourselves. I think everyone has some insecurities about their body. It’s totally normal to feel this way, for both men and women. I wanted to write about this because I think it's important to learn how to be happy in your skin and that you can still love your body, even though you're working on improving it.

The struggle is real

Believe me – the struggle can be real when it comes to loving your body. We all have similar struggles...

A lot of people struggle to find a fitness routine that they like and one they can stick to. It took me about a year to figure out which type of exercises worked best for me and my schedule.

 

Here's a few questions I've had regarding my fitness routine. I hope this can give you some ideas for your own exercise regime!

On my last blog I talked about meal prep ideas for back to school. Today, I'm going to tell you all about my motivations... because let’s face it we all need a little motivation when this time of year comes around. So here’s a few things that keep me sane as we stroll into the fall season.

Fitness

Ah yes! As much as it can be hard to get back to it, there’s no better feeling than the one you get after a good sweat sesh. For me, fitness is a way to relieve stress. I feel so good after a workout, especia...

It’s back to school time, which means getting back to the routine and packing lunches!!! 

I know how hard it can be to plan out your days, especially when you are a student and have a wide-spread schedule. As a student, eating out was more of a routine thing for me than pre-packed lunches – trust me.

BUT, I did learn a few tips throughout the years that helped me integrate healthy eating in my routine. So I thought I’d share some of these ideas with you.

  1. Make a list

    If you read my “Get your sh*t t...

This is something I've been wanting to talk about for a while. People often ask me why they should invest in a personal trainer. And honestly, I wouldn't have known how to encourage them, until I had a personal trainer myself. I hired a personal trainer to acquire more knowledge on fitness.

Being a fitness professional myself, I already had an idea of what fitness was and how to achieve fitness goals, but I wanted to know more. There is so much to learn about health and fitness, and hiring a fitness c...
