Updates: Fathers Day, Green Smoothies and Muay Thai!

Sorry for the late updates! I've been busy, but that is not excuse when it comes to the land of blogs, so accept my apology!
First things first: Father Day Parfait!

My dad LOVES these, and for the fathers day dinner we had on my back porch at my house (where I grew up), I decided to whip up this healthy cool treat for my pops!
It consisted of:
-Organic Plain Yogurt
-Almond/Peanut Butter
-Granola (fiber one)
-Dash of Maple Syrup...better than any cake we could've ordered! ;)

Onto the next update: GREEN SMOOTHIES.

I have been loving these, during hot summer afternoons, and especially post workout. I get them at FRESH (veg restaurant in Toronto) and they usually run me about $6 bucks, but when you take into consideration there is an entire PLANT GARDEN in one of these eco-friendly cups, it's worth the extra ca$h.
More of these will be consumed throughout the summer for sure.

On the exercise front, i've decided to take up MUAY THAI. Yes, mixed martial arts.
Ever since I started to casually watch UFC years ago, i've been fascinated with Muay Thai, and as of 1-2 months ago, I decided to bite the bullet and have a session... result: INSTANT LOVE.

The only downer is the bruises that I am left with (as a result of all the kicks!)
Not gonna lie: i feel pretty hardcore ;)

Off to the gym to do some weight-training, have a great weekend! xox
