Win a $25 Subway Canada Gift Card #CommitToFit - Week 5

We are starting week 5 of the #CommitToFit challenge. Last week we had to think fresh. Since we love being outside, we like to walk all year long in the fresh air. We do 45 minutes everyday. This week's challenge is to try something new. For example, it could be to try to do a walking workout with intervals. Since I can't run, because of a knee injury, I will try doing that. Instead of walking at the same pace, I will do it like this:

  • Warm up = 5 minutes
  • Walk Briskly = 1 minute
  • Walk at a Moderate Pace = 2 minutes
  • Walk as Fast as Possible = 1 minute
  • Walk Slowly = 2 minutes
  • Start again at Walk Briskly

Energy Balls with Dates

Energy Balls



We love to snack during the day. In between meals we need something to give us energy to last a couple hours. Those bite-sized Energy Balls with Dates are not only delicious, they are also packed with nutrients. They taste much better than a snack bar that you buy at the store. They are easy to make, even your kids can make them. They like to roll these in coconut. When you start making your own snacks, you will stop buying the expensive packaged ones at the store.

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips and $250 TARGET Giveaway #ThankFALL

Banana Bread


We spent Thanksgiving weekend at my sister's cottage in Orford, Québec. We had a nice view on the lake. It is so peaceful. In the summer her family spends hours on the lake fishing and canoeing. During the weekend she also invited my parents for two nights. We don't get the chance to see them often because we live three hours away from their hometown. Friday night I prepared a nice homemade pasta sauce and then we played cards all night.

hummus

You all know how I like to talk about food, share pictures of my meals and inspired you to cook for your family. As a Sabra Canada Tastemakers I had the chance to try different kind of hummus and I eat it everyday. I even bring hummus when we go camping, visit family or go for a picnic. This Greek Salad Hummus Pizza is a winner in my house. We could eat it couple times a week. For family gatherings this Hummus Dip with Pita Chips will disappeared in no time. It's healthy and so good. Sabra also makes delicious fresh salsa and dips.

Can you believe it's already week 4 of the Subway Canada #CommitToFit challenge? Last week we had to recruit someone to exercise with us. My husband and I walked, every day, for 45 minutes. This week's challenge is to think fresh. We are challenging you to get out and enjoy the fresh air. We like to walk outside all year long. We feel so good afterwards. In the winter we also enjoy skiing and snowshoeing. Even when it's snowing or raining we go. That does not stop us.
