You don't have to get out of summer mode quite yet, but if you haven't already started, getting your household in order for September isn't such a bad idea. 

Sabrina here! Last month, in an Instagram post I talked about how I believe we’re built for growth and development in our minds and spirits. And that one way I plan to reach my wellness goals this year is to learn through a different lens and good books help me to do that! I’m so excited about a Book a Month series!

How flavorful are these jerk seasoned skewers? This kid-friendly jerk seasoning recipe that's been passed down from my dad will become a summer staple in my house. The ingredients list incorporates the perfect mix of summer vegetables and fruits. And since it feels like summer you should make these babies cause it's quick and the kids will enjoy!

I still remember going to the gym together at 5 o'clock in the morning. My alarm clock would go off at 4 o'clock in the morning, followed by a phone call from Anthony, making sure that I was awake and getting ready. I would sleep on the drive into the gym. But by the end of our workout and throughout the day, I appreciated that he had helped me to fit in my morning workout.

I could tell then that going to the gym was a way of life for Anthony and I knew this was something he would continue to do for the long-haul. I also thought that I was in for a lot of years of training from him (insert wink emoji).

Sabrina here! Thank you for supporting my goal to read a book a month. It hasn't been easy but each time I succeed it's worth it! I'll share the next book I'm listening to with you in July. How perfect is it to find a book that doesn't aim to turn you into a whole new you? Or get you to compare yourself to anyone -- a friend, relative, public figure, celebrity. It pays off to stay in your own lane, and I'm talking in the context of health and wellness. Your Fittest Future Self: Making Choices Today for a Happier, Healthier, Fitter Future You by Kathleen Trotter has been helping me with this.

The struggle for work-life balance for parents is often talked about in the context of not giving enough time to the family. How tragic it is when working hard (whether as an employee, employer, or entrepreneur) to not only make ends meet but to give your family an opportunity to define the kind of life you want for them impoverishes them. Studies show that the connection a child needs to feel with her or his parents' in order to open up and talk to them is cemented long before the teen years. It's no wonder why working parents are trying to find creative ways to earn a living and spend time with family.

It’s Sabrina here, we know that skipping breakfast most mornings or eating the wrong way is common for the clients we see. And so, their first food contact is typically at lunch, which can lead to overeating due to dropped blood sugar levels. We’re here to say that a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be a big ordeal, nor take a lot of time.

When I tell people that my spouse is a personal trainer they automatically assume that I exercise regularly and eat healthy all of the time. This is so far from the truth. 

Good morning Lovelies!! I’m not surprised that I’m blogging on my staycation. Believe me, if I had more time, I would be on here more often. Writing makes my heart happy!

I don’t know about you but I’m home this week for the March break. My oldest who’s five is in camp part of the day and my mini-me who turns three next month is my permanent accessory lol. Aside from toting around the city, I'm at home.

Since I've been home I've been clearing the clutter that has become the junk food of my home. Let’s just say that I’m getting a head start on our spring cleaning, yay! I want to share with you some ideas that I’ve been incorporating into my spring-cleaning routine that makes my home sweet home after all.

Mealtime is an essential part of daily living - along with other daily routines. We eat meals with our family in the comfort of our homes and with other people like our colleagues and friends at the workplace and in public eating areas. We eat meals that match our cultural backgrounds and expand our palates. Prepping and planning meals helps to keep wellness (healthier food choices) a focus for our busy family.
