Every single time I get together with a girlfriend and ask ‘how are you?!’ the first thing that typically comes out of her mouth is ‘I’m good. Busy. But good!’ I also say this far too often, but the truth is…we are all BUSY! We’re all trying to fit a thousand things into a 24 hour period, and the rat race of the day can make it super challenging to take care of ourselves and eat well. Sometimes I’ll be heading out to a meeting, starving, but completely forgot to meal prep and well…enter the drive-thru window. It’s always a bad idea, I always feel gross after making poor meal decisions, but yet, so many of us do this.

I‘ve been making these banana pops for roughly two months now, and the girls LOVE them! They are full of potassium and antioxidants, but they truly do taste like a treat (I love them too)! Don’t worry mamas’ – these are super easy to make and I can usually whip up a batch in about 15 minutes! You can switch up the toppings depending on your flavour preference; we always use a variety of toppings like coconut flakes, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, skor pieces, sprinkles, and more!
This green smoothie has flavours of lemon, hints of basil (trust me…it’s good), and feels citrusy and fresh; perfect for Summer! If you’ve been looking for a smoothie for your morning breakfast or afternoon pick me up, try this and tell me what you think!
Charcuterie boards are traditionally brought out as a pre-dinner appetizer, containing a variety of meats, cheese, vegetables, crackers, and more. The other day, I began planning a brunch menu for friends who were stopping by for a visit, and I thought… why the heck doesn’t anyone make brunch charcuterie boards?
I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
