Peaches & Kale Hemp Hearts Smoothie

It’s time for me to really, like I mean, really get back into making healthy smoothies for me and the family.  I want to add more fats to my son’s diet so this is the only way I can sneak in avocados and flax oil and those yummy, healthy Omega rich Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts.  Shelling the hemp seed produces the most nutritious and…

Protein Powered Oatmeal Berry Bowl

I am so happy that my kids love oatmeal.  I have been inspired to create oatmeal bowls that are pretty but when the kids see it, they want to gobble it down instead of me taking pictures.

A couple of weekends past, I met with one of my popular blogger friends, Baby & Life, Yashy to celebrate her husband’s birthday. I don’t get out too often so it felt unreal to leave our home at 7pm to head to down to one of Toronto’s hippest joints, Birreria Volo. What a swell night of conversation, cheers, food and bevvies. Birreria Volo offers food…
