I definitely have a big sweet tooth, my roomie knows I’m always down for Dominos and cookie dough. (@sunflowersandseersucker lol) But, there are plenty of healthy alternatives to your favourite snacks and treats! I wanted to share some of my favourites.

Roasted Chickpeas Honey-Roasted-Chickpeas-Recipe-2.jpg

These are SO good! Perfect salad topper or snack. Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein to keep you energized. Here is a great recipe you can try!

Self-Care Sunday: Digital Detox

1_IvDMU5pOq6RT8HUHYx3sqA.jpg

It’s the 21st century and everyone is glued to their mobile devices. Not going to lie here but I am definitely one of them! It can be so hard not to when the rest of the world is. They have become part of our everyday lives and we almost forget what the world was like without them. Social media plays a huge part in society, both good and bad. It has the ability for communication across the globe as well as incredible ways of learning and understanding new information. But, it also creates mental health problems and concentration issues due to its addictive qualities.

My friend and I have decided to dedicate this week to a “digital detox”. Starting Sunday we will have a different task to get us away from our devices. Join me!

Sunday

Delete, unfollow, unsubscribe, to anything or anyone that doesn’t have an uplifting, positive, inspirational impact on your life.

Monday

Don’t look at your phone until lunchtime, especially not first thing in the morning!

Tuesday

Keep your phone out of your bedroom at night! This will stop the temptation to look at it and stay away from it for at least 2 hours before bed. Try to read a book or magazine instead!

Wednesday

Write a friend or a loved one a hand-written card through the mail

Thursday

Don’t look or post anything on social media

Friday

Go out to a social event without using your phone at all throughout the evening

Saturday

Switch your phone off for the entire day
