Fresh AF Salsa to top just about anything When the weather starts to warm up my body craves fresh food. You too? Over the past few years I developed some pretty uncomfortable and embarrassing digestive issues. I finally got them under control a few months ago by eating clean, whole food. Over the past couple weeks I’ve noticed that a lot of packaged foods that I used to love will take me right back to those old feelings. Bloated, uncomfortable and unhappy. Salsa is one of those foods that I absolutely

Hey, hey, hey! I hope you’ve had a fantastic April, beautiful.  This month was jammed packed for me! Spring is starting here in chilly Manitoba, we had a freak snow storm that fell on the day I was driving in Winnipeg (which gives me major anxiety) to record audio for an exciting yoga project I have coming up (which was also making me nervous). Moral of the story? I came out alive and you can too. Goal for May: Challenge your fears Comment below and tell me how you’re going

Going after your health goals can be confusing, stressful and lonely. Here are 3 mistakes you’ve made and how to never make them again. In 2015 I started having some uncomfortable, and frankly embarrassing, issues with my stomach and digestion. It started slowly and then all of a sudden I’d be rushing to the bathroom 10 minutes after I ate. #TMI (I’m a nutritionist, sometimes I forget talking about poop isn’t normal to everybody) I was in the first year of a new relationship and I would worry that if

It’s a really sucky feeling when your people don’t support your goals. It doesn’t matter if you’re working towards weight loss, a healthier diet, waking up earlier or saving money. There always seems to be people who want to keep you stuck.  Why is that? The real reason people don’t support your goals Truth bomb: it has nothing to do with you Abso-fucking-lutley nothing.  Your friends and family don’t support your goals because they’re caught up in their own shit.  Everyone has thoughts and perceptions about how the world is and most of us will

The Commandments of Living a Life You Love Living a life that you love doesn’t happen by accident or because of luck. And while for me living a life I love includes going for runs, practicing yoga and eating a paleo type diet that also isn’t want it means to live a life you love.  When you’re creating a life you love there are a few non-negotiable that have nothing to do with what you eat, wear or where you live. But it does have everything to do with how you think, act

5 self-help things that helped me get my shit together Hi, I’m Ally and I’m a self-help junkie. I will devour any self-help book, podcast, tv show or movie that I can get my hands on.  The thing that I love the most about self-help is that there are so many different points of view out there – and every one of them is right (as long as they’re safe, not a scam, and all that ethics stuff). We are all so different, what works for your friend or co-workers, neighbours,

Spring clean your body, mind & soul to make room for your goals. I grew up in a home with lots of stuff. It was always normal to me. My bedroom in high school was an absolute mess. I know every mom probably says this about their teenager but my room was on another level. I literally had a clean path from my door to my bed that was just wide enough to walk through, the rest of the floor was covered in things.  My queen sized bed was taken

How to stay focused on your goal when you’re out of your regular routine My side hustle is being a yoga teacher and I travel pretty often for it. In the past few months I’ve been to three different countries. I also have a quick trip to Vancouver in a few weeks.  I’m totally a creature of habit. I love to know what I’m doing and exactly when I’m doing it or else I will get nothing done. For real, if I don’t plan my day in advance I will

If you haven’t tried the Golden Goddess Turmeric Latte yet, drop what you’re doing and go make it now. Then come back and find out why turmeric is the #1 spice to have in your cupboard.  Maybe January isn’t the best time to set a resolution? Here’s a little change that can help you reach your goals. Cleaning up your diet doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be done in one hour! Since I stopped drinking coffee I’ve been having this instead to help my wake up. Can your

This year was no different than any year before. December starts and past all the Elf showings and Christmas music there’s that little voice that says ‘You need to set a resolution. This year needs to be awesome.’ Every year I fall for it. I fall for the excitement of the new year. I get caught up in buying new planners and colourful pens. I get so fucking pumped to make this the best year ever! And honestly, I did pretty good this year. I haven’t given up exercising, I still
