Prebiotics 101


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

how much sugar cam I eat

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

Elevated Brownie Batter Protein Balls

Blueberry Bliss Nice Cream + Benefits of Blueberries


You have probably heard of ‘nice cream’, right? But perhaps you haven’t tried it out yet?

‘Nice cream’, which is vegan ice cream (dairy free), is pretty much a staple in my household during the warmer months.
