Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe

Now that I’ve had my Glycerin 12‘s for a few months and have run a decent amount of miles in them, I feel like I’ve spent enough “quality time” with them to post my honest review of how I’m liking them.

Spinach Dip Appetizers

I love spinach dip, especially if it’s homemade. And when I go to a party or potluck and see a lovely bread bowl filled with the stuff I know I’m in the danger zone. Why? Because I simply cannot have one or two “dips” and walk away. I want to set up shop next to the spinach dip and linger there until I’ve eaten it all. It can be a problem.

Because I’m the kind of girl who likes to indulge from time to time, I thought that I should come up with a different way to serve spinach dip that has a bit more portion control built in, and that’s how I came up with the idea for a spinach dip appetizer.

Buying With Healthy Planet Canada

With the thoughts of half marathon training upon me, and dreams of warmer tempatures (hopefully) coming our way before too many more months pass, I started thinking about things I was going to need to get me through another summer of training. High on that list was Vega Electrolyte Hydrator, my preferred electrolyte replenisher.

It seemed almost serendipitous when the following day I was contacted about reviewing Healthy Planet Canada (who happens to sell the aforementioned electrolyte replenisher).


Prior to now, I hadn’t heard of Healthy Planet, and had always purchased my vega products directly from vega (where I get a 25% discount for being a fitness professional) or online at

I Don’t Even Miss It… #CoolerWithAlmondBreeze

It’s been a little over four weeks since I started the #CoolerWithAlmondBreeze challenge, and you know what? I haven’t missed having cows milk in the house at all.

Before I continue, I want to say that I actually enjoy cows milk, and still drink it. But, I typically only used it for my cereal, cooking and drinking if I was having cookies or something 😉 The rest of the time I drink mostly water, tea and coffee. Because J is off cow’s milk, up until this challenge I was buying a small carton of regular milk for myself, and then a big carton of almond milk for J..

Cooler with Almond Breeze

For some reason, I had always abstained from using almond milk in my own cereal, I think I had some notion that I wouldn’t like it (even

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Giveaway *ended*

I’ve got a little secret.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts - sooo good!

Yup, it’s true! I heart hemp hearts. More specifically Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts!

For anyone who has never tried hemp hearts, I find they taste a lot like a chopped walnut, others compare them more to a sesame seed or pine nut. Any way you look at it, you can easily add these little hearts into lots of recipes without even realizing they are there (which also makes them kid friendly!).
