Anatomy of a Buddha Bowl

Soulful. Nourishing.  And provides the body with good wholesome energy. If I had to choose 1 meal to have every day for the rest of my life – it would be this, it is so versatile and can’t get boring because there are so many parts.

You can't mess up creating a Buddha Bowl. Any part can be swapped out for basically any ingredient. You can use whatever you have, including any leftovers you’re trying to use up.


  • spinach, kale, romaine, arugula, collards – anything


  • rice, quinoa, amaranth, wild rice – anything

 here’s where it gets interesting…


  • black beans, chickpeas, lentils, tuna/salmon, small portion of meat, hard boiled or fried egg – again anything!!


  • Roast Veg - sweet potato, butternut squash, broccoli, brussel sprouts. 
  • Fresh Veg - tomatoes, cucumber, shredded carrots, sprouts, bell pepper, etc

Healthy Fats:

  • avocado, Olive oil made into a dressing, shredded cheese, greek yogurt


  • Hummus, chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.


You really can’t go wrong!  This is a GREAT option for reducing meat throughout the week (use lentils or beans instead of meat). A great place to start meal prepping -  preparing some stuff ahead of time becomes easier with practice and you’ll have something clean and nourishing to grab and go!

Let me know what you think - if you've tried to make one before? What were your favourite pieces to add? Or will you be trying this out in the near future? Love to hear your thoughts! 

All the best,

Holiday Season + Self-Care

December is a time we tend to fall out of normal routine.  Our schedules can get quite busy trying to finish up last minute Christmas shopping and attending holiday dinners.  Either way it's easy to fall off the wagon. These simple tips are going to help you to stay committed to your own self-care and well-being this holiday season.

Start Here + Now

I was at a Fitness Conference in Toronto this past weekend and I picked up a few ideas that I love!  As we're approaching the end of the year I am super inspired to help YOU get a head start in your results and your SUCCESS for 2017 (for whatever that means for you;  fitness, health, life, business, personal, etc).

Do You Really Want it?

Believe it or not there are 55 days left of 2016! I'm pretty excited for the rest of the year if you ask me.  

This year has been a great year for me and my business. I really stepped out and overcame a lot of things.  I have a lot to be proud of and grateful for. 

Last year there were many hurdles I had to get through, and at times I didn’t know how I would make it out on top. It’s funny how life can change so much in a year. I’m in a much better place now and it’s a reason to celebrate!

So YES -  I am excited to finish this year off strong, and so can you if you desire. A lot can be done in 55 days. We’ve all heard the saying it takes 21 days to create a habit – well as it turns out, that is actually false – you can read about it here.

There is still hope though. If you really want to create change it boils down to making the right choices on a daily basis.

The challenge for November is to answer the 2 questions on the calendar (click here) and wake up each of the next 54 next days with intention to walk towards your best and strongest finish to 2016!!

You got this! 

Fall + Letting Go

I love Fall.  

It's so beautiful, not just the changing leaves but the entire shift in season. I find it fascinating the whole process, the leaves fall, we clean up the mess of it all, a new leaf grows and it happens all over again. It is a good life lesson.

Its a good idea to regularly clear away clutter from our minds, our space, and our schedule.

Our minds can only hold so much before feeling cloudy and lost. 
Our physical space can make us feel tired and unfocused if it is too cluttered.
Our schedules only have 24hrs in a day and we often try to squeeze in way more than what is actually possible, its important to let go of a task that is no longer serving you before adding something new. Otherwise we burn ourselves out and we don't have time to enjoy anything.  

What can you clear away to feel a bit lighter?
What no longer serves you that you can let go?

Living Intentionally

Where will you be in your business & your life in 36 months.  Not because you hope, but because you decide. Everyone knows how to create, you’re not a manager of your life, you’re a creator.   – Tony Robbins

We all have the power inside ourselves to have what we want out of our lives.  Whether that is freedom, more money, our ideal body, our ideal energy level, etc.  I recently saw a video of Tony Robbins explaining this and it got me really pumped, I wanted to share.

Most people on the planet let life happen to them – living in a reactionary state.

 Living intentionally is where its at. 

Being aware and conscious of what you are creating in your life. Versus reacting.  Having a vision and designing your future around it.

First step is getting yourself in tip top shape.  I’m gifting you with a tool that will open your eyes towards creating your best self.  Yes this tool has the power to make a profound difference in your life if you use it. 


Remember…where do you want to be in 36 months?  What are you creating now in order to make that happen?  Success doesn’t happen overnight, it comes with small daily actions repeated over time!

Lots of love,

Jen xoxo
