Tis the season for holiday parties and family gatherings! There are lots of delicious treats and drinks that are hard to resist when you are being mindful of your nutrition goals. As an alternative to sugary festive cocktails, why not enjoy a beautiful Christmas inspired sangria. Keep out the added syrups and juice, and add some colour with cranberries, citrus and herbs!
A new season is the perfect time to switch up your wellness routine!
Many studios and gyms have a complete makeover with their schedule. New classes are created, and teachers move around the different time slots. It’s the perfect opportunity to experience something new.
As for your nutrition, we are heading into Fall, and although some of us may not be happy that the weather is getting colder, there are plenty of delicious things to look forward to!
For me…. I love peach season in Ontario, pumpkin spiced lattes, apple picking (to make baked apples or apple pie) and making butternut squash soup. (Side note… Recipe coming soon!)
Long summer days call for something refreshing, colourful and nutritious! That’s why I’m sharing my go-to summer watermelon salad recipe! This dish is a hit at picnics, barbecues and potlucks. It will quench your thirst, cool you down and fill you with nutrients we need.
This past April I had an amazing opportunity to head to Mexico for one week and participate in the Essentrics Symposium; a fitness retreat hosted by the ESSENTRICS® head office, where Essentrics teachers take daily classes with Master trainers, attend workshops (that focus on sports, barre work and pain relief), and connect with the global Essentrics community.
Valentine's day is around the corner, and so are boxes of chocolate.....I mean they are everywhere! I can't get chocolate out of my mind. Naturally, it's a sign that I need to share this recipe for chocolate tofu mousse!
It’s brutally cold out, which means that home cooked meals are a must! But who has the time to cook every night? I find it especially difficult to prepare dinner when I'm getting home late, and all I want to do is warm up under the covers with a hot drink! Sound familiar?
No, it’s not eccentrics, or excentrics. It’s ESSENTRICS with the double S. This is the question I get asked all the time. Personally, it is much easier to demonstrate Essentrics as opposed to verbally explain it, but I’ll do my best!
This is MY FIRST BLOG. Here it goes… I hope you enjoy!
At least once a month you can read something new, where I'll be covering topics about fitness, nutrition and general well being. I won’t tell you to try the latest fitness and diet trends, because frankly, I don’t’ believe in that B***S***. I take a balanced, sustainable and realistic approach to health.
