A Moment in my Life

Good Day

Well I am a little behind in getting this out – busy but fun weekend and my computer crashed – not good timing but really when is it??!!

Yes mercury is retrograding and I am feeling the effects of it lol

Just wanted to share a few moments in my life with you!

Friday was busy with my daughter getting ready for Prom – my son graduated two years ago and I remember it being much simpler – ahhh the difference between boys and girls.  Nails, hair, getting car all cleaned for playing taxi, flowers, picking up, dropping off and lots of excitement and giggles.

Saturday morning I meet up with some fellow photographers that I just met and we did a real fun and funky photo shoot up at Lake Bunzten – I had never been and it was a gorgeous morning.

I had a lot of fun with this shoot – stay tuned for upcoming photos

Walking on Water……

Sunday was another busy but fun day – started of at the Vancouver Veg Expo and I highly recommend attending one in your area if there is one.  Lots of cool products, samples and people!!

People  are wanting to eat healthy and be healthy and our world is demanding more of it.  I found alot of information on GMO’s – Jeff Smith was there who is also one the guest speakers at Purium this August, and companies making that part of their products.  Organic, clean, real and raw – these products are nutrient dense and I found many to compliment my way of eating and the Purium products – so it was very cool!!

Then I finished off the day with some friends hanging out on the Drive – (otherwise known as Commercial Drive in Vancouver) experiencing Italian Days – lots of people, food, music and not just Italians!!

Great little band playing on the side – they were fun and called Happy Hour!!

Summer is just getting started – love being outside more and connecting with like minded people and having fun – isn’t that how life should be?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Spirulina Krispie Bars

When I lived on Vancouver Island – I would visit this health food store that sold these amazing Spirulina Bars – don’t know the recipe and tried to copy it (kind of hard when you don’t know the recipe at all) but this is what I came up with and different but I think still tasty.

it may seem like I am on a bit of a Spirulina kick but what I am trying to share is how easy it is to get superfoods or nutrient dense foods into your way of eating and it doesn’t have to be hard, expensive, boring or confusing – it really can be easy, tasty and your body will love you for it!!

I am all about healthy eating made easy!!

Spirulina is a natural “algae”  powder that is incredible high in protein and nutrients and easily digested by our intestinal bacteria that in turn then feed our blood and cells.  It is an excellent source of B vitamins, is a complete protein, 18 amino acids, has PEA (Phenylethylaimine) – dubbed the love chemical so it helps us to ‘feel good’, high in bioavailable iron, is loaded with lots of enzymes – which helps with digestion, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids, and is extremely high in Chlorophyll, which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.

Spirulina is one of the most nutritious food sources in the world – I choose Purium Spirulina because it’s organic, non-gmo and live – always make sure of these qualities.

What if consuming a tablespoon or two per day of a simple food like Spirulina could drastically lower your chances of developing cancer, heart disease, or stroke, or just feeling better overall?  Wouldn’t that be cool?

Recipe

–  2 cups Crispy Rice cereal

–  1 cup Pumpkin seeds

– 3 tbsp Chia seeds

– 3 tbsp Hemp seeds

–  1 cup Sunflower seeds

Mix together in a big bowl

In a pan on very low heat – just enough to warm things, mix together

– 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (Purium’s Coconut oil)

–  1 cup Almond butter

–  1/2 – 3/4 cup Agave, Honey or Brown Rice Syrup (depending on the sweetness – I used Brown Rice and it needed a little more)

–  1/4 cup Tahinni

–  1 tbsp Vanilla

– 2 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s Spirulina)

Mix all ingredients together and when smooth  mix into the other bowl and mix well.

Press into 8 x 12 square dish.

I found it best to keep in fridge – cut into squares, eat, share and enjoy!!

Great snacks, on the good food source and will keep you satisfied for quite awhile – including your sweet tooth!!
