I’m so excited to be writing a book in the new Cocky Hero Club world with Marlo Lanz. You can learn more about our upcoming new release by reading the Seductive Scoundrel blurb below. You can also add it to your TBR on Goodreads so you don’t miss any updates! We’re hoping it goes live early next year and can’t wait for you to meet Dean and Mia.
Healthy baked falafel
I’ve always adored falafel, but I only indulge in the takeout kind (read: fried) on occasion. I decided to create my own healthy baked falafel recipe as a filling, healthy and delicious alternative. Continue reading “Healthy baked falafel”
Green detox smoothie
Many of us overindulged over the holiday season and perhaps skipped some of our workouts. Three months after Christmas and perhaps you’re still trying to implement healthy habits to shed the weight you gained. I’ve been drinking this green detox smoothie on repeat since January. It tastes like a pina colada and I hope you love it as much as I do! Continue reading “Green detox smoothie”
Best booty workout
I saw the hashtag #beatwritersbutt on Instagram and I couldn’t resist participating. Writers spend a lot of time sitting on their butts, so how do we combat the dreaded writers’ butt? Well, with the best booty workout of course! I previously shared my favourite YouTube channels for free workouts and the best Jillian Michaels DVDs (many are lower body focused), but today we’ll dive a bit deeper. Continue reading “Best booty workout”
Benefits of Himalayan salt lamps
I’m always researching the latest health and wellness information. It’s a good thing James is patient to a fault because I’m always bringing home random things, creating new recipes, and reading the latest books while I regal him with the exciting ways we’ll improve our lives this week (and many of these ideas make their way into my books). The benefits of Himalayan salt lamps recently came to my attention. Of course, I added one to my Christmas list of dream gifts and my mom delivered.
Thai quinoa salad
For a delicious meatless Monday option, try my easy and simple Thai quinoa salad that is vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and soy free (the same as these donuts, which were my most popular recipe of 2017).
I like to make this salad and then eat it for lunch all week because I don’t mind eating the same healthy thing for days on end (goes well with my natural inclination towards kitchen laziness and hatred of dishes). Continue reading “Thai quinoa salad”
Hearty chicken and rice soup
It’s so easy to heat up soup from a can, especially if you or someone in your household is under the weather. However, there is nothing like homemade hearty chicken and rice soup (plus there’s a lot less sodium). If you make a big batch and freeze it in portions (meal prep 101), then it’s basically the same thing as reaching for a can. In my recipe down below, I give you my secret to great tasting soup that won’t disappoint! Continue reading “Hearty chicken and rice soup”
Sweet potato scramble
I love breakfast food and we often have breakfast for dinner at our house (check out my recipe for delicious coconut flour banana pancakes to get the full story behind my addiction). As we work to reduce our meat consumption, eggs are a quick, easy and cheap source of protein that works for some vegetarians. If you’re looking for meatless Monday ideas, try my sweet potato scramble recipe for breakfast or dinner! Continue reading “Sweet potato scramble”
Homemade lip balm
Early in my wellness journey, I started making my own personal care and cleaning products. Once I learned about all the toxins in products we slather all over our skin and use to “clean” our homes, I couldn’t continue using them. I’m a chapstick addict, so homemade lip balm was high on my list of priorities. Continue reading “Homemade lip balm”
Healthy breakfast quiche
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I shared why in my gluten free coconut flour banana pancake recipe – it stems from nostalgic memories with my dad, who I spent a lot of time with in the kitchen baking up a storm and creating new recipes. We’ve been consistently meal planning this week and healthy breakfast quiche has been getting us from early morning to lunch with ease. Continue reading “Healthy breakfast quiche”
