Pastel Bikini Smoothie Bowls by Fraiche Nutrition made with Genuine Health Protein Powder

Back in university I used to eat the same thing for breakfast EVERY day: a bowl of cereal.  Sure, the cereal choice would change a bit, or I would add some fruit to it, but there wasn’t a lot of variety.  While I still love a good bowl of cereal, I find that my breakfast, and every other meal, changes … View The Post

Almond Roca chocolate vegan dipped popsicles using almond beverage by Tori Wesszer Fraiche Nutrition

Growing up, Almond Roca was one of my all-time favourite treats.  My grandparents ALWAYS had a tub of it kicking around the house and to this day it carries big sentimental value.  Fast-forward to the adult me, and I still love the treat…but it’s clearly a ‘sometimes food’!
