What is Adrenal Fatigue?


Stressed? Tired? Craving sugar? Can’t sleep?

All of these can be related to the constant stress we feel in our lives. We know that stress can have a huge impact on our health and wellness. And, since your adrenal glands produce stress hormones, adrenal fatigue (or “HPA Axis Dysregulation,”) is a popular theme lately.


Your adrenal glands look like walnuts that live on top of both of your kidneys. These important glands produce many hormones, including stress hormones.

But […]

10 Ways to Practice Holistic Self Care


What are you doing to show yourself some love and gratitude these days, my dear? What nourishes your soul?

For years, after becoming a mother, I put myself on the back burner. Starting a family was such a huge adjustment for me, and self care truly felt like a luxury that I didn’t have time for. If you’re a busy caretaker, student, or have a demanding career, I’m sure you can relate. Doing something kind for myself seemed so […]

What are Prebiotics and Why You Need Them

Prebiotics 101


Yes! They’re the food that we feed our probiotics, the friendly gut microbes that are oh so important for good health.

Our gut microbes are alive, and they need to eat too. Their favourite foods are called “prebiotics” and include dietary fibre and resistant starch. The same fibre that keeps us feeling full slows down digestion and provides roughage that keeps us regular. Resistant starch helps promote healthy blood lipids. Both of types of prebiotics (fibre and resistant starch) are […]

How to Read the New Nutrition Facts Tables


The Nutrition Facts table is on the side of most packaged foods. It’s often found close to the ingredient listing.

The purpose of it is to help consumers make better nutrition decisions. When people can see the number of calories, carbs, sodium, etc. in food, they should be able to eat better, right?

Whether you like the Nutrition Facts table or not, let’s make sure you get the most out of it, since it’s here to stay!

Here’s my four-step crash […]

How Much Sugar is Too Much?

how much sugar cam I eat

It’s official! Organizations and governments are (finally) declaring a maximum amount of daily sugar intake.

While this is a step forward, there are still a few problems. One – they don’t all agree with each other. And, two, I don’t necessarily agree with them either.

We all know sugar is NOT a health food. It isn’t full of nutrition, and excess consumption is not associated with great health.

The problem […]

Energizing Low Sugar Date + Coconut Bites

Satisfy your sweet craving, without the crash!

Today I’m sharing my beautiful Mama’s recipe with you! She is the baker in the family and other the years she has really adopted a healthified way of channeling her love of sweets.

Dates contain:

  • Almost 2 gr of […]

Elevated Brownie Batter Protein Balls

There is nothing wrong with indulging in something delicious every once in a while. Even if you are trying to lose weight or fix your hormones or energy or whatever you are working on.

The moment you start to bring the words never, always, can’t, not allowed, and so on into your nutrition plan vocabulary, is the moment you start to create a negative relationship with food, yourself and the concept of healthy eating.

Complete restriction over a long period = feeling […]
