3 Countries in 3 weeks

A vacation that I started planning about 1 year ago is coming to an end tomorrow. Over the last 3 weeks, I have traveled to Jamaica, Germany, and Norway. Writing this I’m reflecting on what I’ve seen and experienced. Jamaica I was asked by my work to travel to Mandeville, Jamaica to help launch a…

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….

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…

Day 1

Today started off with great intentions. 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…

Upgrade

After many months of deliberation, I finally decided to upgrade my phone. I feel like the same rules that apply to cars, apply to phones. The moment you walk out of the store, the phone is instantly worth a lot less. Also, I feel like my hands are like shopping carts in a parking lot….

Go Green in 2016

New Years Resolutions are something that nearly everyone falls victim to at one time or another. We all promise to work out more, eat better, manage our finance, take more photographs, try new things, gossip less, even fly a plane! No matter what your resolution is, chances are, within a few days or weeks, you…

Green Lemonade

This morning I woke up early to make a fresh juice for breakfast. I cracked open The Reboot with Joe and found a green juice that looked refreshing. I gathered my ingredients and began feeding them into my Breville. A few moments later I was emptying the pulp bin and rinsing the blade. I looked at…
