One Change


I have never been about little changes. Oh no. I’m all about do it all big or go home…

My personality has always been all or nothing…harmonious planning or a beautiful catastrophe. However, over the past few years I’ve been learning that the most effective way to bring change into your life is through baby steps. Small ideas you can turn into actions…and once you get good at those small things, you can tackle bigger ideas Continue reading »

Dandelion Pesto


Dandelion Pesto

Like me, one of my amazing roommates is a health nut. She’s a genius at creating delicious-ness out of things like…dandelion greens. Once I first tasted her recipe for dandelion pesto, I asked her if I could share the goodness with you.

I’ve only had dandelion greens in smoothies and juices Continue reading »

Low Carb Frappuccinos


Low Carb Coffee Frappaccino

Coffee has become a better friend than ever. I’ve adjusted my schedule quite drastically and I now get up outrageously early so that I can go to the gym before my morning classes hit. While this night owl still gets used to getting up while it’s still dark, coffee has become a staple.

Hot or cold, it’s a blessing.

However, currently my favourite way to enjoy it is as a post-workout breakfast…and yes, protein in the shake and whipped cream on top. I’m that girl. Serves 2.

Low Carb Frappaccino

Low Carb Frappuccino

  1. 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
  2. 1 tbsp. heavy cream (opt)
  3. 8 stevia drops*
  4. 1 tbsp. instant coffee
  5. 1 scoop of whey protein, unsweetened
  6. 1 tray of ice
  7. Cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste**

*I used vanilla flavoured NuNaturals – I use this for everything, no joke

**Or you can use these spices just for a pretty dusting on top of the shake

Blend everything in a high speed blender. Pour into two glasses, top with whipped cream (optional for you – necessary for me!) and serve.

Coffee Frappaccino

This recipe can be made vegan as well, simply omit the cream and use a plant based protein instead of whey.

Are you a coffee fan? What do you like better – hot or cold?
