The Egg Fast Experience

Guys. You asked. I delivered. I recently spent the weekend on the Egg Fast. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about you can read about it here. Essentially you consume an egg/fat-based diet for 3 to 5 days to kickstart your body in to fat-burning mode. This post really sums up the function of the fast quite well and a few of you sent it over to me and asked me my thoughts. My girlfriends recently tested out the…

Feels with Florida Orange Juice

Ok you guys. Let’s get serious for a minute. I have been trying to stay consistently fit throughout the year but as we head in to spring I am noticing I am totally getting lazy with my workout goals. I’m a bit mad at myself because I was on such a solid regime and then things really went downhill after Bahamas and I just got super lazy. I don’t even have a reason why. Maybe it was seasonal, maybe it…

#3yeargoals – Final Thoughts

Happy Monday little ones! I swear I had such a relaxing weekend where I filled my time with cooking, long walks with the pup, a delicious vodka martini (extra dirty of course) or two and some volunteer work! It was the most productive weekend I’ve had in a while, in part to not having any major social commitments and also since I’m not returning from or traveling to the States. I honestly feel like I’m the most settled I’ve been…

fitspo with forever 21

Bra | Workout Pants I have been getting a ton of feedback on my body (luckily positive) and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for your comments! I wanted to share the few simple changes that I’ve made that have allowed me to actually make improvements in my body. To give context, after I ran my 15k and half marathon last year I was severely injured and I couldn’t continue running long distances…I could barely walk in…

Get Sprouted for #meatlessmonday

As a student of holistic nutrition, I am constantly learning about the benefits of probiotic cultured food for digestive health and balance. Our gut health is critical in supporting our mood, concentration and immune system. By choosing probiotic cultured foods, and fermented foods we are encouraging the beneficial bacteria within us. Some examples of fermented foods that are readily available to us are kimchi, sauerkraut, miso and kombucha. What I love about Sprouted is Sonya’s passion for probiotic cultured food is clear…

#My24Hrs

                    Today is February 29th which means it’s a once every four years, leap year! Beyond the fact that this day is so special to me (it is my monkey, Choco’s birthday), it’s also an added day that we get to do something a little extra, which I always try to commemorate when I can! So I’m proud to share that I’ve partnered with Microsoft Canada to spread the word about the #My24Hrs campaign. I’m delighted to share how Microsoft…

#Savetheundies with U by Kotex

A few weeks back the stunning (and now Notable award winning) Maripier Morin graced us with her presence at the always delicious Montecito Restaurant in Toronto. In partnership with U by Kotex, we had the chance to lunch and learn about the company’s latest products and figure out how they can help us #SaveTheUndies. Now I know what you may be thinking, who wants to talk ladies’ days over lunch? But the beautiful thing about it was a room full…

Adidas PureBOOST X

Photo via Anna Bediones I had a chance to finally test out Adidas’ new PureBOOST X runners and I am actually blown away. I’ve had so many issues with my feet since my 15k that finding a good shoe is a constant trial and error. I took these bad boys for a spin on the treadmill last night and they were so amazing! I was nervous because the top of the runner is mesh material and I was scared that…

#MeatlessMonday

Two posts for you lovelies today (keep scrolling for today’s OOTD post) because I’m excited to introduce my friend, Erin, who will be joining me on the blog from time to time! This year I’m determined to make a shift in my diet as last year with all the traveling I was doing, I felt incredibly low energy, gained weight and my skin reflected all the horrible habits I had undertaken. Erin will be blogging about her healthy lifestyle habits and…
