At least this is my opinion! This is a great smoothie to add to your smoothie rotation. This smoothie was not only very tasty but extermely filling. I did not add any protein powder to it as I was content with the 19g that it already offered. Simply add all the ingredients listed below into your […]

Are Abs Really Made in the Kitchen? We see it on Facebook, on Pinterest, and on motivational Instagram posts: “Abs are Made in the Kitchen.” Sure, it’s become a mantra for athletes and fitness buffs over the last few years, but what does it really mean?

Bethany's Pasta

I know many of you have heard of, if not tried spaghetti squash. It has a bit of a sweet flavour, which is not surprising as ~40% of the carbohydrates found in spaghetti squash are coming from sugar; 20% from fiber, and 40% from starch. When cooked right it has a different texture of normal […]
