Tis the season of plums, among other things;) Oh how I love to sink my teeth into these juicy, yummy fruits! But, they also taste lovely in other forms such as spreads and of course SMOOTHIES! You will love this recipe for the Plum LOVE Smoothie – easy breezy and delicious too!
- 4 ripe red plums
- 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
- 1 tsp raw organic honey (optional)
- Add all ingredients to a blender
- Blend well on high speed for about 10 seconds
- Serve cold
In addition to their fantastic taste, plums are filled with Vitamins A, C and K, fibre, potassium, magnesium, iron and copper. Plums are SUPER antioxidants! These little fruits work hard to reduce the risk of many diseases such as osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. They improve blood circulation, lower cholesterol levels, are fabulous for your skin and for your bones! Can I say hurray for plums?!
Add a touch of cinnamon to this smoothie to further provide your body with antioxidant protection! Cinnamon not only protects your body from free radicals, it also helps it fight infections and repair tissue damage.
Opt for unsweetened almond milk to keep your smoothie low-calorie, dairy-free and filled with protein! And if you want a bit more sweetness, choose raw organic honey!
Enjoy your smoothie! Enjoy your day!
Cheers to YOUR health!

I took a bit of a break this week from blogging, mainly because I needed a break in my crazy life, but also because my mind has been super preoccupied with thinking about my passions and my life path. Of course Sundays are the best days to think back over the week, so here I am!
Anyway, one of the things I have been trying to focus on is Mish Mash Flowers – my little at home business adventure. I have been making these fruit, veggie/cheese flower bouquets for years now, mainly for friends and family. But the more I have been making them, the more I realize I have found a passion. I’m genuinly excited to make these and I LOVE the look on people’s faces when I hand them over. L-O-V-E! So, I am working on getting more active in promoting my little business adventure, preparing a price list, making more of my bouquets and I hoping to get this going;)
I thought I would share a few pictures with you of my work. You can also follow my Instagram page here: Mish Mash Flowers
I have always liked radishes and knew of their nutritional benefits. Having said that, I could eat one or two of these red beauties and be done, you know? I mean, how many radishes can a person eat in one sitting? 😉
I recently heard of the exceptional benefits of radishes when it comes to kidney health and dissolving kidney stones. And since I need help in that department (lucky me!), I thought, I must increase my intake!
I started to experiment with juicing radishes and guess what? I can drink a whole bunch in one sitting;) Ha! If you’re looking for a nutrition packed juice, this one is a definite option for you!
- 1 bunch radish (approx. 10)
- 1 lemon
- 1 apple (any apple will do, but the sweeter the better!)
Farmers’ Market … just thinking about it makes me feel SO good! The smells, the colours, the food, the people, the atmosphere. Fantastic feeling!
I am super lucky to live around many farms where farmers have summer stands, smaller and larger markets, and of course our very own Hamilton Farmers’ Market – open all year round!
Wedding season is upon us, ladies! And we all know what that means – other than getting a fantastic dress (of course!), we just need to look GREAT! I mean, who doesn’t want to get all glammed up once in a while? Or every day! Why not;) Regardless of the occasion, we all want that sun-kissed summer skin, to go with that fantastic dress or any pretty outfit! I recently purchased the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion and it’s time to give it a review!
The weather has been SO hot around here lately! Not complaining, not complaining! But, man it has been HOT! So what’s a girl to do? Make some yummy juice, of course;) Have to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
This Mango Juice Delight recipe is the easiest, quickest way to make a yummy juice for you and the family. Your kids will love it AND you can easily serve it to guests in pretty wine glasses, or just treat yourself!

I love Sundays….they always feel a bit more laid back, relaxed and simple.
This is the day I tend to think about the week that has been and the week to come.
I found this list on Pinterest and wanted to share with you.
The minute I saw the name ‘Loaded Pierogi‘, I thought: ” Yey! They spelled pierogi the right way! Gotta check this place out!”. And so I headed over with my lovely friend for a pierogi lunch. We both have Polish in us and we both know what good pierogi taste like. We decided to see if this place would satisfy our taste buds!
