Beet Quinoa Salad (I think this is it!)

Beet Quinoa Salad (I think this is it!)

I’ve long coveted the amazing Beet Quinoa Salad from a local restaurant that is no closed. Since I can no longer sleuth out the flavour palate by eating there, I have to bank on my memory. But I think I’ve done it. For real. This is so close…and even if it’s not “it,” it’s darn close and it’s delicious. Which is good enough for me!

I love this fresh simple salad. It’s a great weeknight entree salad and since it has cheese and salami in it even kids like it! #winning This salad made enough for 2 adults and 2 kids for dinner and 2 adults for lunch! #hurray

Craft a Unique Plan: Find Your Fit

Craft a Unique Plan: Find Your Fit

If you’re just getting started with more focus on movement, I highly recommend simply focusing on just moving your body in ways you enjoy. Don’t over-complicate things with complex plans and detailed exercise regimens. You don’t need to hit the gym or do HIIT (unless you love them). Start with a plan to simply MOVE your body for 10 minutes daily. With time build that time to 20 or even 30 minutes daily. Walk, swim, dance, clean – do things that you enjoy (ok, so maybe not clean) that get your heart pumping and your muscles working. This will help you develop a great base of functional fitness AND build and engrain a habit of movement into your lifestyle! #winning

Once you have that base of healthy movement the conversation can begin to shift to more specific fitness outcomes. #cool

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

The other day I was chatting with a group of women around the topics of body love, self-compassion & health. In hushed tones one of them shyly asked me, “can I love my body…and still want to lose weight?” She asked me as though it was some dirty little secret, that somehow she couldn’t desire to change her body – and still love her body. That the two ideas were somehow contradictory. And I realized that there was a need for clarification!
