WorryWart? More like WorryWeed (no not that kind)!

Well hello again! I hope you’ve all had a fun summer and are ready to get back into the swing of things as fall fast approaches. Whether you’re starting school, work or your retirement, I find this time of year to be a bit overwhelming as the season starts to change,...

Roll With It

Adopting this mindset encourages a positive outlook on life and the notion that most people are good

You Should Chai It

To all of you who love chai tea, and to those of you who don’t, this tea is worth a try. I recently had the pleasure of taste testing Ommate’s loose leaf chai tea and was delightfully pleased with its ingredients, flavor…

Acne Update/Skin Care Routine

Writing about my skincare routine has never been something I've dabbled in, primarily because (and if you read this post you would know) my skin has never been something I'm particularly proud of. My skin has always been my #1 biggest insecurity because of the...

Snack Bombs (VEGAN/GF/PALEO/KETO)

This recipe is one of my favourite things to snack on and is a true staple in my weekly meal prep. After lunch alongside a cup of matcha these snack bombs are the ideal afternoon (or morning) pick me up/pre-workout/pre-dinner snack. Some call them fat bombs, I have...

Trilogy of Perfection

I recently read an article by Cody McBroom on Dr. John Rusin's website called The Nutrition Hierarchy: Performance VS. Aesthetic VS. Health. It truly is an excellent read not only in content but in its purpose as well. McBroom discusses how to achieve optimal...

Resolutions

Given that January is coming to an end and that the cold weather has truly set in for many people around the world the reality is, that many people's New Year's resolutions have most likely come to an end. I'm not stating this to sound pessimistic, in fact my goal is...

Yummmeatloaf

For some reason (maybe this is just me) but I've always portrayed meatloaf in a negative light. I'm not sure if it's because it reminds me of icky cafeteria food or if it's just the name I don't like, either way this delicious meatloaf will melt all of these worries...

Purpose

If you know me well, you know that as much as I'd like to be I'm not much of a reader. In fact, I really don't read very much at all, -unfortunately so. However, in efforts to improve my reading ability, I've recently started to read a new book: Blue Zones of...

What’s Taken Me So Long?

Finally!! I’m back to blogging after such a long break and the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the holiday season is in full swing and I’m feeling cheery! As you’ve hopefully noticed, the reason I’ve been slightly MIA is primarily because I’ve been working on...

Why I Stopped The Bulletproof “Lifestyle”

If you follow my blog posts, you would know that a few months back I read the book “The Bulletproof Diet” and thus, quickly became an advocate for the high fat, butter coffee “lifestyle”. Although I still firmly believe that a diet high in healthy fats works best for...

Environment, Change & Happiness

Hey everyone! It has been another little while I know… I think that from now on, I’m going to post when I can, when I feel inspired; hopefully that’ll be more frequently considering the amount of free time I now have (you’ll see why below), but if not, just know I’ll...

My Hormonal Acne “Story”

Today’s post is about my recent venture with one very popular acne treatment: Accutane. This is a sensitive topic for me because it touches upon my BIGGEST insecurity, but it's something I have wanted to share for a while. Now, before you all stop reading here because...

Why High Fat You Ask?

I did promise to elaborate further on my current love for a high-fat diet... So, if you’d like to know why I’m such an advocate for a high-fat, low-carb and moderate protein diet, keep reading. Below you’ll find why I think it’s a good idea and particularly who it’s a...

Bulletproof Coffee

As promised, here is the recipe for "Bulletproof Coffee", I start every single one of my mornings with this coffee. The recipe comes from the Bulletproof Diet book by Dave Asprey. His diet focuses primarily on eating high fat, it involves intermittent fasting and...

Leah Honiball

“I met Leah over four years ago, when I was hired to build her website. I took a look at her site recently and saw all the valuable knowledge she had shared there. I asked myself what I had to show for being a writer and designer all these years… Nothing in terms of a personal site. So I was inspired by her, which is a nice way of saying I was jealous, and began to write daily, on the quest for a 365-day body transformation.”
