I love breakfast smoothies. They are a great way to get in all of your nutrients for they day ahead. In addition to that they are quick and easy! Below is the formula to make any green smoothie, 2 of my favourite recipes and some things to keep in mind!

Every green smoothie that I make has a base of :
  • Leafy Greens
  • Banana
  • Seed (Chia or Flax)
  • Additional Fruit or Veggies
  • Protein Powder
  • Liquid (Almond Milk, Water, Coconut Water) I usually add enough to cover the leafy green
Berry Green Smoothie

  • Kale
  • Banana
  • Chia Seeds
  • Frozen 4-Berry Mix
  • Protein Powder
  • Water
Zen Green Smoothie
  • Kale
  • Banana
  • Chia (Not too much)
  • Apple
  • Protein Powder
  • Water
Notes for your smoothie:
  • Drink the whole thing within half an hour. Most of the nutrients will be gone after that
  • I have a vitamix and although it's heavy duty I still like to slice and dice everything before I put it in, just so it lasts longer
  • Leave the seeds in your fruits and veggies. For example I didn't remove the core of my apple because that where a lot of the healthy nutrients are
Enjoy everyone! What are your favourite green smoothies? Comment below

Day At The Zoo

A few weeks ago I spent a day at the Toronto Zoo! Although it looks cold with all of the snow it was actually one of the first warm days we've had in awhile.

Arctic Wolf

The polar bear cub was something like 3 months old! He wouldn't stop running around and visiting everyone.

Next time you go to the Toronto Zoo, make the trek out to the Canadian Domain. I never used to go because it was so out of the way, but now it's my favourite part!

Canadian Moose

 Canadian Buffalo

 White Lion


Have a great day everyone!
