If I had to name one guilty pleasure it would absolutely be pizza! There is something about fluffy crust topped with tomato sauce and melted cheese that just gets me hungry. Ordering from the pizza place down the street can be veryyyy tempting. They have 50% off Mondays and delivery takes 20 minutes. Downside: I always feel awful and icky after eating it. Solution: pizza from scratch in less than an hour! Making your own pizza is really easy, I promise! And the ingredients are wholesome and won’t make you feel icky after 🙂 Continue reading

Got back pain? This post is for you! I have chronic back pain and I’m constantly searching for ways to ease the pain. Today I’m specifically talking about ways to keep your spine healthy and mobile. I’ve always had some issues with my tailbone area of my spine but when I was pregnant it got extremely painful. It felt like my lower spine was all out of place and crunching on nerves. Ouch! Since I started doing yoga for back pain and stiffness, I’ve felt SO much better and I want to share my tips with you!
Yoga can help make your spine feel aligned and flexible instead of stiff and painful. I volunteer at a local non-profit community centre so I’m lucky enough to get free yoga classes. I’ve become friends with the instructor and turns out she also has that stiff, crunched feeling in her lower back! There are several yoga poses that we do that are an absolute lifesaver and today I’m going to share them with you!
Mmmm what’s better than a piping hot bowl soup on a cold day? I love soup with hearty vegetables in the winter time to warm me up and fill me up. This Curry Winter Vegetable Soup has butternut squash, carrots, onions, garlic, and deliciously warming curry spice. It’s got a lovely silky texture and I like to top mine with a dollop of creamy Greek yogurt and fresh, vibrant cilantro to contrast the warmth. It’s just amazing! I’ve made this winter vegetable soup several times, which is saying a lot because I’m always trying new recipes, it’s not often that a recipe gets repeated in my kitchen.
