Colourful Smoothie Challenge Recap (and winners!)


Colourful Smoothie Challenge Recap Winners

Happy July 1st (and Canada Day)! This marks the official end of the Colourful Smoothie Challenge.

I was going through the #colourfulsmoothie hashtag this morning on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. It was so fun looking through all your guy’s smoothies over 30 days. There are hundreds of amazing photos and some of them were so Continue reading »

Week 3 of the Colourful Smoothie Challenge (giveaway closed)


We have made it 3 weeks of a smoothie a day! I’m proud of us.

I’ve repeated some of my favourite smoothies, but I’ve been trying a ton of new ones…which adds excitement and keeps things fresh. I’m not sick of smoothies yet! In fact, I’ve often been having two a day! Blame it on this crazy hot sunshine. Keep reading below to find out what this weekly challenge is (and to enter a sweet giveaway!).

I have now completed two-weeks of my Philosophie Cleanse and I have been super happy with it (read what I’ve been eating). I felt great the whole time, maybe a little tired…but it’s hard for me to distinguish what causes that (since that’s a side affect since my accident). Like I mentioned before, I was rarely hungry and felt like, on a cellular level, my body was satisfied with nutrition so it had no reason to “be hungry”. This is not actual science, it’s just my own thoughts. I’m still obsessing over Philosophie’s superfoods and put them in all my smoothies.

Philosophie Superfoods for every smoothie

My bases are quite clearly covered. Thanks again to Sophie for being part of this challenge and letting me try the 2-week cleanse! Read a fun interview I did with her here – she shares her “secrets” to a successful, passionate business, her routine for fitness, and her diet/beauty secrets!

So back to WEEK 3 of the COLOURFUL SMOOTHIE CHALLENGE! Here is your new weekly challenge!

Now onto the fun stuff! I said that if you did any one of the weekly challenges you were eligible to win a surprise prize! Well, it’s here!!

My friend Clark works for Quest and he set up a super sweet giveaway. I have loved Quest for-eeeeeeva. Why? They are a protein bar that tastes like dessert (smores or oreos anyone?) and yet it’s nutritional profile is great. For example, one of my fave Quest bars is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar and it has 1g sugar, 3 net carbs, is high fibre, and no gluten. I know you’ll love them as much as I do.

However, Quest went overboard and is giving away their new protein CHIPS (whaaa!) and some of their protein shake packets!

Win all of this @questnutrition goodness from @colourfulpalate! Protein chips, protein bars, and protein powder!

Check out this haul! Yah, you want some! I haven’t tried their protein powder yet (follow me on IG and I’ll post my thoughts on it soon!). However, I have tried their chips and they are a happy mix of a crisp cracker and a chip. When I’m craving the munchies this is the perfect go-to. I love their BBQ flavour.


First thing’s first. You have to have done at least one of the weekly challenges to be eligible to win! I’ve put the other two week’s challenge videos below so you can run and do one of the challenges, and enter right away! It doesn’t matter if you’re late to the party or are not part of the Colourful Smoothie Challenge, just do at least one of the weekly challenges. Open to US and Canadian residents. However, if it’s a Canadian winner, Quest isn’t able to send them chips or protein powder, so they’ll replace that with another box of bars. At the moment, they’re not shipping those internationally.

Now comment below and tell me what your goals were for one of the weekly challenges! I’ll announce the winner on the 22nd of this month!

Optional entries (in a separate comment tell me each thing you did ):

UPDATE: Brenda Penton is the winner! Congratulations and thank you to all who entered!

Good luck! I’ll see you on Wednesday! xo

I love not getting up when it’s still dark – hot lemon in the morning – reading more – going on walks (my current main form of exercise) – drinking tea ALL day long – wearing cardigans and Continue reading »

NuNaturals Giveaway


NuNaturals Stevia

Updated: Congratulations to Rebecca, Elizabeth, Jay, and Linda!

Every single day I use stevia. However, I’m pretty picky about the kind I use.

There are certain brands of stevia that have a wee bit of an aftertaste, and while I’d prefer to use any stevia rather than sugar, I’d rather use something that Continue reading »

Healthy Cookie - wanna a bite

Update: Whitney is our winner! Congratulations!

Hello everybody…and no, I’m not dead.

Sheesk. I’ve missed blogging so much. It’s taken me a few weeks to get myself organized and figure out how to prioritize college, social life, homework, part-time job…let alone blogging.

However, because of my absence, I’m making it up by doing a giveaway. You’re okay with Continue reading »

I completed the #colourfulsmoothie challenge

Dah, dah, dah, duh (my very rough trumpet fanfare sound effect)…

It has come to this…the end of the Smoothie Challenge has come and September is here! I meant to have this post up earlier, but I was moving back to the city for my last year of Exercise Science, so it was a crazy day.

Anyway, now
