Good morning, hope you’re all having a great weekend so far! I’m super excited to tell you about my all time favourite breakfast! Stoked Oats saves the day by making it easy to enjoy your breakfast with virtually no hassle, so you have more time to focus on your morning hustle each day.
My go to breakfast meal has always been a hearty bowl of oats topped with mixed berries and nuts. But the one thing that I have never really enjoyed is taking the extra time to add all the additional ingredients, because it’s a bit of a hassle when I’ve got other stuff to do — such as hair washing day or an extra early start. Sure preparing your meals the night before can save you time, but who wants more dirty dishes?…
Let me set the record straight: I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast 365 days of the year. That being said, I do think it’s good to switch things up every once in a while. Winter time is my favorite time of year to experiment in the kitchen. Snowy days call for more time indoors and more time for baking, recipe testing and DIY projects. Eating the same bowl of oats each and every day is always nutritious , but this holiday season I want to tantalize my taste buds.
Join me in testing out these great new recipes from Joanna Stankiewicz and see if you ever find breakfast boring again. Lets get cooking!!!!!

It’s so great that people are investing in their health more and taking ownership of it. It can be so empowering knowing that you are in charge of YOU. Although it sounds so simple, and perhaps obvious, your health is something that can be easily overlooked. What we put in our bodies each day has such a huge effect on us internally and externally. I love sharing my new recipes with you guys, they are all quick and easy! But most of all, they are no fuss, super healthy and delicious. I hope you enjoy my latest smoothie creation!!!!!

Who is Wonder Woman you might ask? Wonder Woman is an Amazon and was granted her powers by the Greek gods, in particular by Aphrodite who created the Amazons. It is said that much of her strength came from her training and channeling of her mental powers into physical abilities.
The truth is, we all secretly have super powers within. Sometimes we just can’t figure out how to use them properly. In honour of all the True Wonder Women of the world, I created a smoothie that combines the antioxidant and cancer preventative powers of cherries with the hormone balancing and mood enhancing powers of the maca root . This smoothie is sure to stimulate your body, boost your energy and enhance your performance. …
Once upon a time in the grocery store, we were faced with the choice of only two kinds of eggs: brown or white. Even then, did we really know what that meant? Well most of us assumed when we were buying brown eggs they were the healthier choice. Well, nowadays there’s more to selecting the right eggs than just the colour. With so many egg options available at the supermarket today, it can get a little confusing. To help you make an educated decision next time you buy eggs, I put together a little break down of your current egg options.
Your Current Egg Options:
Standard Eggs – these hens are raised in cages under cramped conditions prohibiting natural behaviours.…
When it comes to smoothies, I usually like to experiment and create my own tasty concoctions to be shared with all of you. But I could hardly resist, when I came across this tasty non dairy version of such a classic ice cream favour, I was just dying to try it. Not only was this smoothie created by my all time favourite protein creator Vega, but it didn’t disappoint!
I am so excited to share this recipe with you and can’t wait for you to try it! With its sweet Canadian maple core and the toasted crunch of walnuts, how could anyone resist this guilty pleasure. I hope you all find it as delicious and indulgent as did I.…
After a good workout, I always turn to a delicious smoothie to satisfy my hunger and fuel my body with the right nutrients for repair and recovery. To ensure my smoothie will fill me up and keep me satisfied for more than a few minutes, I’ve learned that I need to pack it with nutritious ingredients such as whole grains, fresh fruits, greens and of course protein.
Another great addition to any smoothie is a spoonful of nut butter or a handful of chopped nuts to add a little texture, with the added benefits of healthy fats. To achieve the unique “muffin” flavour in this smoothie, I turned to butter extract and uncooked oats to achieve the right taste and consistency.…
a smoothie bowl ?
I’m sure everyone knows what a smoothie is nowadays, but what about a smoothie bowl? These filling and extremely nutritious breakfast bowls are just like smoothies, but thicker so they can be spooned up and topped with extra goodies.
Smoothie bowls are the perfect breakfast or healthy snack for those who like to sit and eat their food versus sipping it from a straw. It’s also a super easy way to pack tons of superfoods, protein, vitamins and minerals into one simple meal.
How to make a smoothie bowl!
Unlike a smoothie where all the ingredients are mixed together, smoothie bowls are usually topped with delicious toppings – like nuts, seeds, granola, fruit, shredded coconut or chia seeds – to add nutritional value and a little crunch.…
Why is it so important to consume protein immediately after we exercise? After we workout our muscles are completely depleted. Therefore our bodies require an abundance of protein and other nutrients to help build and repair our muscles. Additionally, if we intake the proper nutrition immediately after a good workout, our bodies are biochemically “primed” for maximum nutrient absorption.
My favorite way to fuel my muscles for recovery, is to create a delicious post workout drink. Blueberries are filled with many antioxidants therefore they are a great addition to any smoothie. Try one of my go to recovery creations today !
