Eating to Stabilize Blood Sugar

If you haven’t read my last post, start here. This post goes hand-in-hand with my post about blood sugar levels and sleep quality. Keeping blood sugar levels consistent throughout the day can keep you from cravings, feelings of fatigue, difficulties concentrating, and many more unwanted symptoms. AND for those of you that read my last…

Blood Sugar and Sleep

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason? Your blood sugar levels could be the key! I found a couple of fascinating articles on this topic, and they are linked throughout the post. Sleep can affect your blood sugar levels, and your blood glucose…

Gluten-Free with Ease?

I took some time to really think about what barriers keep people from trying/staying gluten-free, and realized that there are quite a few. I’ve listed the top barriers to a gluten-free lifestyle that I have experienced personally and would be willing to bet are quite relate-able for my readers. I’ve also included some tips for…

No Pie?! Goodbye!

It’s summer and there’s a BBQ to go to every single weekend. When you get there, you see they’re serving pie… And you’re trying to be Gluten-Free… Oh the dilemma! I’ve already faced this problem a couple times this summer, and I’ve decided to do something about it! I decided to sign myself up to…

Clean Produce? How?

A while ago we talked about some of the dirtiest produce there is… but the reality is that ALL produce should be washed to remove dirt, germs, and pesticides. I’m not a fan of buying separate washes for everything, so I stumbled upon a very SIMPLE rinse that you can make at home to rid…

“B” tired? B12!

I’m often too forgetful to rely on taking any forms of supplements and vitamins, but lately I’ve been making it a priority to take Vitamin B12 on the daily and have noticed a huge difference in my energy levels. Since my last post was about caffeine, I figured I should probably write a post about…

Caffeine – Friend or Foe?

Most people (myself included) have a caffeinated beverage to “start the day” – and we tell everyone we just can’t function before we’ve had it. Of course caffeine helps to wake us up in the morning, but just how much should we be having every day? The Food and Drug Association (FDA) says that we…

Breakfast to Break the Fast

You’ve all heard it before – breakfast is the most important meal of the day… But why? Eating breakfast is a way to start your day on the right foot. While sleeping, your body is in a fasting state. When you wake up in the morning, a healthy breakfast “breaks the fast” and starts up…

Sugar, Sugar

It’s our favourite thing to eat, and it’s in pretty much everything… But we know it’s bad for us! Sugar, like anything, is fine in moderation. Added sugar is hiding in 74% of all packaged foods! How can we tell? Sugar is listed on nutrition labels under many different names. I’ve listed sugars below so…

Taste the Rainbow!

I got the idea for this post because its Pride Month! I’ve been seeing rainbows everywhere and it got me thinking about how I could use Pride Month to inspire my blog post. Surprisingly, the colour of your fruits and veggies matters! The brighter – the better! Instead of a boring list, I found this…
