Warm Gingerbread Smoothie

Holi-YAY

My favourite part of the holidays? Christmas brunch. The ol’ turkey dinner gets so much of the spotlight, but brunch is totally where it’s at.

I’ve been making the Christmas morning spread for as long as I can remember. Savoury crepes, eggs benedict, and sweet potato pancakes with fresh jam are the staples on our holiday brunch menu. And in honour of my family’s most loved recipes, I’ll be sharing one each week leading up to the holidays.

Warm Gingerbread Smoothie

Starting it off is my Warm Gingerbread Smoothie! This recipe is the perfect smoothie to whip up before you head out the door for last minute holiday shopping. I usually make this first thing Christmas morning to keep me fueled through present opening and brunch prep.

Boosters

By adding in the optional boosters, you’ll be giving yourself a meal in a glass! Hemp hearts boost the protein and omega-3s, while the collagen supports the digestive system and healthy skin/hair/nails. Maca powder is amazing for balancing hormones and boosting energy. Sunflower lecithin is incredible for supporting your brain and nervous system. I always love adding a scoop of coconut oil to help reduce inflammation and provide some extra energy. All things we need a little extra lovin’ with around the holidays.

Warm It Up

Not only is the coconut milk warmed up on the stove, the spices are naturally warming to the body. Include lots of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove in your dishes to warm the body up and keep your digestion happy at the same time.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"After a few months, my skin improved significantly."

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

Laurenne B.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
