When life is going 100 km/hour balance is tough to achieve. Like many of you I try really hard to make healthy choices and exercise on a regular basis. Sometimes with work, school, volunteering, social activities and laundry…it can be easy to slip up. However, I try not to beat myself up too much…because for one I am trying and that is important. Secondly, balance is important to me, meaning that I like to make sure I make time for Netflix and a run and I like to make sure I allow myself some indulgences like poutine. 🙂
Fitting in a quick run or workout in the living room may seem difficult some days, but I try to make it happen. The outdoors and fresh air helps me focus on all my other tasks. I am a master at making mental lists while I run. Often it ends up I fit in my exercise very early in the morning or late in the day and I need to be flexible because each day my schedule is so different.
Most of us get don’t get enough greens in our diets, so making a conscious effort to supercharge my morning smoothie (with one scoop of greens+) is a great way to make sure that happens. That way, I don’t feel so bad about the pastry (because who can resist pastries), knowing that I am working hard to achieve the balance that is important to me.

I love the Vitamix Total Nutrition Center. It is for more than smoothies and it is great to use for many recipes, from salsa and dips to cookies and bars. It is making preparation a breeze. The Total Nutrition Center can chop, cream, blend, grind, knead, churn, emulsify, purée, powder and whip ingredients. It is one of my favourite kitchen tools.
