The best thing about these pancakes is that they are filled with protein, fat and fibre, oh my!  All the components needed for a healthy breakfast.  Although the […]

My new favourite meal!

Hungry and searching through the fridge and pantry to make something nutritious, delicious and most of all QUICK, I came up with a new recipe! I thought I would start with eggs, but what was I going to add to it, to make the dish come alive?  So, I diced up some avocado, added one […]

Allergies

Do you suffer from allergies?  Or know of someone who does?  Chances are the answer is “yes” to at least one of those questions. Our reaction to allergies has been allergy medication and I can’t believe the number of different medications/prescriptions used: Aerius, Claritn, Reactine, Allegra, Benadryl, Claritin, Chlor-Trimeton, Dimetane, Zyrtec, and Tavist,  Clarinex, Xyzal, […]
