Introducing Dailey Cycle At The Dailey Method

I was first introduced to The Dailey Method this past summer when I was asked to be a blog ambassador and take part in the #DoItDailey30 challenge. Doing it daily sounded like an excellent idea to me, and I was definitely up for the challenge. I just didn't know quite how challenging it was going to be.





The Daliey Method (TDM) is not only popular in Ottawa's Glebe neighbourhood, but across North America and Europe, as well. TDM is an efficient and effective way to increase muscle length, tone, and balance, all while improving cardio strength, posture, and motivation. The work-outs are amazing and will have you burning calories while you're building muscle in a fun environment with amazing teachers and music. (This is key!).


I'm so excited that The Dailey Method has opened their very own Dailey Cycle studio.


"Dailey Cycle fuses The Dailey Method's signature focus on alignment and body sculpting with the cardiovascular benefits of indoor cycling to delivery an intense, balanced, full-body workout resulting in a high calorie burn."


Sign me up!


From Thursday February 16th to Saturday February 18th, you can take part in free barre, cycle, and yoga classes for all three days. So no excuses; you can all take part and see what the hype is about for yourself.


The Dailey Method also has a special all-access new client unlimited month for only $69. (Just go here and enter the promo code OPENHOUSE69).


If you'd like to take part in any of the classes being offered for free between February 16th to the 18th, sign up here to reserve your spot.


I'll see you at the barre!

Kellogg Canada Rings In The New Year With Tasty And Healthy New Treats (And I'm Giving Them Away!)

Kellogg's is more than just my go-to for breakfast cereals, although eating a bowl of Special K cereal (and the new All-Bran Multi-Grain Crunch) is always a great way to start the day. I love the variety of Kellogg's cereals, but their new line-up of tasty granola bars are a great snack option, especially when you're on the go from work to after-school activities. 

From quinoa and dark chocolate to mixed nuts and real fruit pieces, Kellogg's snack options are endless... and the best part is, they're healthy. Kellogg's Special K added two new flavours to their Nourish line and I love them! Nourish granolas are now available in Mixed Berries and Dark Chocolate  Coconut, which I love pairing with yogurt and fresh fruit for a healthy breakfast. 

I also love the Special K bars, and the new Coconut Cashew and Dark Chocolate and Caramel are simply delicious. For extra protein on-the-go, the Vector Protein bars are the perfect choice, and a great snack to have post-workout, too. 

Now, can we talk about something a little more on the yum side of healthy? Pringles Ketchup Chips. Oh, my gosh, you guys––these are the most delicious Ketchup chips ever. (And the perfect snack to help you celebrate Canada's 150th birthday!) They didn't last long in my house, because my boys devoured them quickly, but I'd love for you to try them for yourself so you know what I'm talking about. 

I'm giving away a great Kellogg's prize pack filled with all these delicious treats!


To win, just leave me a comment telling me what your favourite Kellogg's food is, and I'll pick a winner randomly on January 31st. It's that simple!

Good Luck, and happy snacking.

Say Hello To HelloFresh Canada


The holiday season was a wonderful time spent with family and friends, and overindulging on delicious foods and baked goods. Now that the holidays are over, and with routine finally back in our lives,  it's time to start eating healthy again. And thank goodness for that, because with an upcoming trip to Miami, there's no better time than now to get back to eating healthy, well-balanced meals.

As much as I love getting back into my normal routine, I don't love meal planning (thinking of something different for my family to eat every day can be challenging) or the prep work in the kitchen.

I recently had the chance to experience HelloFresh Canada, and my entire family loved it. HelloFresh Canada now delivers healthy, delicious, and convenient meal kits to your front door, so all the hard work—thinking of what you want to make for dinner, and then shopping for the right ingredients—is already taken care of for you.

HelloFresh Canada takes care of meal planning, shopping, measuring, and delivery, so when you get home from a busy day at work, you'll be able to spend more time with your family enjoying dinner together with less time worrying about to what to eat. The meals planned with HelloFresh can be made in 30 minutes or less—I love that!

We received our HelloFresh box, and it came with three separate meals: Caramelized Onion Pizza, Oregano Chicken, (with delicious potatoes and vegetables) and Lemon-Basil Shrimp Skewers. The meal kits comes complete with fresh pre-measured ingredients, step-by-step recipe cards, and nutritional information.



You can customize the type of meals you want to receive from two options: the Pronto Plan, for 2 or 4 people, with 3 meals a week, or the Family Plan, for 4 people, with 3 meals a week.

HelloFresh  is based in Berlin and delivers meal kits to people across the USA, London, Amsterdam, Zurich and Sydney. Now Canada can also enjoy this amazing service. (HelloFresh delivered over 22 million meals in three months!).

If you want to order from HelloFresh Canada, head over to HelloFresh.ca, or download the app to your phone. Next, choose your option—the Pronto Plan or the Family Plan—and select your meals. You'll receive your box weekly on Tuesday or Wednesday, and you'll be ready to start cooking some tasty and healthy meals your entire family will love.

Right now, you can use this code to get $50 off your first meal kit.

Just looking at the recipes for the next week is making me hungry! HelloFresh is an amazing way to take the guess work out of what's for dinner, and delivers great food to your front door. It's convenient, delicious, and healthy.

We can't wait to try HelloFresh Canada again. It's a service we all loved. Thank you, HelloFresh Canada, for the opportunity to review your tasty meal kits.
