Plant-Based VS Paleo: Which Diets Wins?

Plant-Based and Paleo eating patterns are taking the world by storm and are arguably the most popular diets/ eating patterns right now. What is ironic, is that these two diets differ widely in their recommendations. There are strong advocates for each diet – so which is the best one to follow? Let’s explore.

Hearty Minestrone Soup

Confession – I’ve made this soup for the past 3 weeks. I just can’t get enough! I’ve always gravitated towards pureed soups (let’s be honest – probably since they’re so forgiving and idiot-proof!) however my boyfriend was requesting a heartier, chunky soup. He has a fear of being full…and the pureed soups weren’t cutting it!

Berry Orange Protein Muffins

I’ve come to accept that (for the most part) ain’t nobody got time to make eggs in the morning. What other high protein breakfast options are there? Greek yogurt…this is great but it can get old. Okay…chia seed pudding? Also great but unless it’s smothered in nuts, it’s not really too high in protein. Eggs? Oh wait, we’re too busy for eggs.

How to Detox in 2016

IMG_1762I have previously written a post about detoxing. In this article, I took a fairly strong stance against detoxing, as our organs and immune system handle detoxification on their own already. One of the reasons I took a strong stance against detoxing is because the term ‘detoxification’ has been overused and misused by nonscientific practitioners, self-educated consumers, and the media. Detoxing is celebrity endorsed, heavily promoted and is becoming big business.
