Balancing Fitness & Health with Motherhood & Career

I love being a mom and I love being a woman in business and I have found over the years, that I have struggled to find balance. I have also found less time for creating the healthiest meals for my family while trying to feed picky eaters and also getting myself to the gym seemed to take a back seat to all my other priorities. I have to admit as well, that I am not the most athletic girl and I really didn't know what to do at the gym. I have tried many things and all of them were great but what I was missing I knew could only come from getting really committed and consistent to a change!

Home Bar 101 - Guest Post by Suzanne Johnston

Who doesn't love having a well equipped home bar?! It's always good to be prepared at home when having guests over and I find it's nice to offer a beverage. To offer that beverage having a well stocked home bar is essential. Saskatoon's Suzanne Johnston paired up with her friends to create your very own home bar check list.  

Take a peek!

Meet The French 76

When Big Brothers Big Sisters asked me to create a signature cocktail for their "Local Celebrity Bartending Challenge" taking place next Wednesday (p.s. Don't tell them I'm not a celebrity, okay guys? Just go with it!), I knew it would be a play on the best drink around: the French 75. If you've enjoyed a French 75 before, you may know it's the most delightful blend of champagne, simple syrup, lemon juice, and gin (or formerly, cognac). The plan was to do one better than the 75 and working alongside my bartender mentor Jake of Congress Beerhouse, we managed to elevate that near-perfect drink to the apex of deliciousness... all while adding a local twist c/o Lucky Bastard Distillery. No matter if you're able to make it to the fundraiser next Wednesday at Congress or not, you'll want the French 76 recipe for yourself and today, that's just what I'm serving up.

Kiddo (and Keto) approved 5 minute treat.

In the midst of planning my upcoming June wedding, at times it feels hard to keep my head on straight with all the things I want to accomplish. I've found that balancing family, my business, nutrition, health, school, dance, and a bazillion DIY projects can be a little daunting. Even when things are busy, I focus on keeping my diet clean using fresh nourishing ingredients - even when it comes to treats.

The Underrated Blueberry Tea

Many people have not heard of what a Blueberry Tea is.  So my friends... for those of you who haven't heard about this lovely warm boozy drink... you're in for a treat!  And you MUST must must try this recipe. Its the season of staying in on a cold friday night with your significant other and making this warm treat! In our house we also call it... Talking Water. ;-) The conversations will flow all evening haha!
