It’s been a while

Hey my raw tots! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I am crazy busy with packing my home as well as recently took a few vacations. Once I am unpacked I’ll have more time to blog as well as start making videos! I’ve got some exciting things coming up so stay tuned….

Sugar Coated – Review

“A calorie is a calorie. Burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight.” These are common statements that we’ve all heard about diet and nutrition. This 2015 documentary available on Netflix disproves these statements. This film strives to make several points: A calorie is NOT a calorie Sugar takes on many names…

Day 8 & 9

I totally fell off the wagon. Not just fell off the wagon but then the wagon took off, leaving me in the dirt. Day 8 Wednesday started out OK. I had a veggie burger and mashed potatoes with onions and peppers. The burger is a fresh made pattie of beans and an assortments of vegetables….

Day 6 & 7

I don’t have much to say about day 6 & 7 except, pizza. Yeah, pizza. My mum and I took my nephew to a park and when we stopped at Starbucks to get a drink, I inadvertently parked in front of a Papa Johns and it was all I could think about for the rest…

Day 5

Today overall wasn’t completely terrible. I like to set aside 1 day of my weekend where I stay home and relax all day. I sometimes get a little anxious and stressed if I feel that I didn’t really “get a weekend.” Sunday, was my relaxing day. A realtor was coming to take photos of my…

Day 3 & 4

Before I decided to start this new way of eating, I told myself that I would give myself 2 treat days a week. These would be days that I would stick to the plan most of the day, but allow a meal that I chose without the containers in mind. Friday and Saturday were those…

Day 2

I can’t say today was too much better than yesterday. I enter every day with the best of intentions and at some point, I falter. Last night, I used my Meal Prep Haven containers to prepare myself a quinoa salad with goat cheese and mango. 1 Fruit (mango) 2 Carbs (quinoa) 1 Healthy Fats (goat…

I had a chiropractic appointment in the morning so I made my lunch using the Meal Prep Haven containers. 2 Vegetable (spinach) 1 Fruit (strawberry) 2 Seeds / Dressing (walnut / raspberry walnut vinaigrette) Since I had an appointment, I foolishly forgot to eat breakfast. When noon rolled around,…

Get Your Fix

Day 1 of the 21 Day Fix. Well, not exactly. Even though most of what I eat is healthy, I’m not completely raw yet and the processed food that I am eating is the wrong portions and wrong amount of the right things. Well Ashley, just go completely raw. Easier said than done. As we…

Food Swap

I’ll admit, I’m a weight loss show junkie. My 600lb Life, Fat Chance, Extreme Weightloss, Skin Tight, I love them all. Well except Biggest Loser. I think it’s wrong to eleminate contestants off of the show when this weight loss could save their life. That’s why I was excited when Shaun T announced that he…

“People Food” and Pets

I read a great article today about reducing inflammation in your pets. Our pets are not that different from us. They have organs and a lymphatic system, they can get cancers and stress, and their health is impacted by many of the same things that ours are. Our bodies are similar in a lot of…
