Eating well and enough is hard, but feeling depleted and having blood sugar crashes is harder.

Making time for exercise is hard, but feeling low on energy and motivation is harder.

Cleaning up toys and messes around the house all day is hard, but feeling ragey and annoyed my house is a disaster is harder.

Choose your hard. We all get to choose. Don’t forgot that you are in charge of your life and how you live it. No one else dictates how you feel or what you do. We are so much more powerful than we think 💫

Setting yourself up to... fail?

If you’re working on improving your well-being but you’re not actually doing goal specific tasks to help yourself, then it’s more likely you’re going to fail 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but the only person in charge of making sure you’re implementing these changes is YOU! Not your doctor, not your nutritionist and not your partner. These people can offer support along the way, cheer you on and just maybe (after they see how good you feel) they’ll join in too 😉.

My goal is to start eating more during the day to prevent nighttime hanger. This means that I need to make sure I have enough food prepped or planned for busy days. If I don’t have easy to grab food and snacks, I won’t do it. And if I don’t have time to do it, guess what? I’m asking for help or buying some pre made foods that I normally make at home for ease.

Want to start working out in the AM? Set your alarm early, have your clothes ready to go and plan workouts you actually want to do.

Want to start a daily 5 min meditation practice? Set a reminder to your phone and figure out a meditation style that works for you.

Long story short, the one person that’s usually in the way of your goals is the same person looking back at you in the mirror 🪞

🙋🏻‍♀️ Night time snack attack.

Sometimes I sit there and think for a second, am I’m hungry or bored? Nope definitely starving. So off I go to snack.

What does this tell me? For me it means I am not eating enough during the day. I’m a mom, I’m doing a million and one things, multitasking, changing diapers, making sure kids are fed, cleaning as I go, making mental lists of what I need for groceries, trying to text people back, did I remember to make an appointment, did I miss an appointment, looking for someones missing sock, annnnnnnd so much more.

I usually breeze through breakfast and lunch not really paying attention to eating or feeling full, seeing if I need to add more to my bowl because my mind is elsewhere. So my nightly snack attack is a sure sign that I need to bring more intentional awareness to what I’m doing and how I’m feeling.

The truth is so many women are under-nourishing their bodies. Whether it be a situation like mine or another reason, we need take inventory of how we’re showing up for ourselves. Are we eating enough protein? Are we scared of carbs? Do you have “low fat is healthy” ingrained in your brain from the 90’s marketing? How can we expect to feel amazing when we’re not nourishing our bodies with enough food?

I’m choosing to make nourishing my body with enough food a non-negotiable part of my morning and afternoon because I deserve to feel amazing 🙌

🍪 One Bowl Almond Butter, Oat Milk Salted Chocolate Cookies
😋Makes 16 cookies

1 cup runny almond butter
1 egg
1/2 cup almond flour + tbsp
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bar of endangered species salted oat milk chocolate or 1/2 cup chocolate chips of choice

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix together almond butter, egg and coconut sugar. Add in the baking soda, salt and 1/2 cup of almond flour. Mix well. If your dough is too sticky add the additional 1-2 tbsp of almond flour - this will depend on how runny your almond butter is. Chop chocolate bar into medium sized chunks and fold in.

Use a tbsp cookie scoop to place on a parchment lined pan and flatten with a fork. Bake for 7-8 minutes and you MUST let them cool for 15 minutes so they don’t fall apart.

Going from a city living mama, with all the conveniences at my fingertips to building my little dream farmhouse inspired retreat in the country, makes me feel super excited and ridiculously scared all the same time.

🍃 But I’m committing to what’s calling my soul and what feels exactly right for me in this moment. Taking a chance and giving myself permission to totally hate it or love it is one of the most freeing feelings ever. No strings attached. But I’d never get it out of my head if I didn’t do it. I think those are the things we need to do more of in life. Take those chances that are called on by our hearts, because you never know what’s on the other side.

We just need to be willing to detach from who we’ve been and what we have become, before we can discover who we are really meant to be and what our work is in the world 💫

Now most importantly, who’s ready to help me design this kitchen 😂

❤️ 2021 has been the best year yet! Welcoming our sweet baby girl into our family, getting to spend SO much time together and now it’s time to plan for the next year.

Without a doubt it’s going to be a wild ride. You never truly grow in your life until learn to get uncomfortable. It’s saying yes to the things that scare you for a big reward. So I’m here for it 🙋🏻‍♀️ Besides, I get bored easily and I thrive on change. I’m just happy Peter trusts me enough to go along with my crazy ideas 😂

If you’re looking to make changes in your life stop waiting for them to come to you, this is your sign to go after it!

These are the days 💕

All I want for my birthday is for Peter to say yes to the 30 acre homestead farm I found on MLS 🙋🏻‍♀️

Seriously though, I posted last year about how I don’t care about gifts 🎁on birthdays or holidays. For me it’s that I get to spend it with my 4 fav people in the world. I’m the happiest and the healthiest I’ve been in years. Those are truly the best gifts.

I have so much gratitude for the last year in my life. I’ve grown the absolute most and I’ve had the brightest light shine down on what’s most important. My intuition has guided me in the craziest of ways and I’ve be able to see things through a new perspective - so much so that there are literally no words to describe it.

None of it has come with ease but once you learn that your greatest struggles bring you the best things in life, that is when you truly start LIVING!

Celebrating 32 and not wishing to be anywhere but exactly where I am right now, because I truly have it all 💫

👩‍🍳 I always do a double batch! I love using coconut flour for its taste and added fibre, however it always requires extra eggs and liquid to keep your baking from drying out. These turned out perfect and they’re a great nut free snack to send for school or daycare! I freeze extra in cooking tacos and the place them into my stasher bags to keep them fresh.

Double Batch Pumpkin Muffins

1 1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 1/4 cup bobs red mill all purpose GF flour
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves

2 cups puréed pumpkin
2/3 cups butter or coconut oil melted (not too hot)
1/2-3/4 cup maple syrup (3/4 if you want +sweet)
5 large eggs room temp
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

Optional: 1 cup chocolate chips or raisins

Preheat oven to 325. Whisk the wet ingredients together in one bowl. Mix the dry ingredients in another. Add your optional chocolate chips or raisins. Scoop batter into a lined muffin tin. Makes 24 regular muffins. I made 12 regular and 24 mini.

For regular sized muffins bake for 22-25 minutes until tops are just firm. For minis bake for 14-17 minutes checking ever 1 minute if not cooked by 14.

Is there a reason I can't print the 8-week Gut Rehab Program?
It's more important than ever to find ways to take care of ourselves; both mentally and physically, whatever that looks like to you!

Our clinicians are still here to serve you ... The only difference being that they may or may not be in their sweatpants while they do it 😉 Our clinician team has been very excited to have designed and be able to virtually offer the NutriChem Virtual Health Summit! And just like that, it's around the corner, and at 70% CAPACITY!

On Thursday May 14th, dive deep into topics such as anxiety and depression, medical cannabis, infertility, microbiome gut health, allergy conditions, testosterone health, immunity, menopause, and more! This day will be hosted by Lianne Laing of Living Your Life with Lianne Laing Podcast - and is completely free!

This is a 'pop in, pop out' event! You do not need to be able to attend all 8 talks between the hours of 9am and 5pm. The talks are approximately every hour (see our itinerary at bit.ly/nutrichemvirtualhealthsummit/ for full details!) with intermissions in between that you won't want to miss 😉 featuring familiar faces such as Laura Mierzwa Nutrition, and some familiar places such as our Compounding Facility and more!

Be sure to register your spot, as they're filling quickly! bit.ly/nutrichemvirtualhealthsummit/

This time one year ago we were unpacking boxes, setting up our clinic, hooking up the phones, stocking our shelves - getting ready to present the world our highly anticipated flagship location: 2599 Carling Avenue after 38 years at our Richmond Road location. 🎊 It had been a project on the rise for years, and we've been so proud to be serving you from such a comprehensive facility that really speaks to the world what NutriChem is really about: SMART HEALTHCARE.

So happy first birthday, Carling Avenue. 🎈 This is not the way we expected to be celebrating our first birthday. We miss serving our clients (in person!), we miss having you at our microbiome bar, on our IV's, in our clinic, grabbing your prescriptions, in our front store - but we will see you again one day soon. For now, stay healthy, stay connected!

Thank you so much to our amazing staff who have been with us through it all,
Our clinical team and management,
And all of our vendors and other teams that have come in and made this all possible:
