Spring has sprung...the grass is ris....I wonder where the birdies is....
When I was a kid I remember reading that line in a Garfield Comic strip in the weekend newspaper that my parents would get (They loved doing the word search and reading the obituaries - don't ask...)
But every spring I always remember this comic haha. It just makes me giggle.
I love spring, the mornings are still cool with fog, sunrises are beautiful, the air smells so fresh. And the food starts to get lighter it seams. More relaxed.
I do love a good salad all year round, however, spring just gives that freshness to the salads with more flavors. And this quinoa salad does just that!
Do you love your breakfast? Do you have a short list of “go-to” recipes? Do you need a bit of inspiration to start eating breakfast again?
Getting some protein at each meal can help with blood sugar management, metabolism and weight loss. This is because protein helps you feel fuller longer and uses up a bunch of calories to absorb and metabolize it. So I'm going to show you how to get the protein, as well as some veggies and healthy fats for your soon-to-be favourite new “go-to” breakfasts.
You may feel tired, cold or that you've gained weight. Maybe your digestion seems a bit more “sluggish”.
You may be convinced that your metabolism is slow.
Why does this happen? Why do metabolic rates slow down?

This word “metabolism” is thrown around a lot these days.
You know that if yours is too slow you might gain weight. But what exactly does this all mean?
Well technically “metabolism” is the word to describe all of the biochemical reactions in your body. It's how you take in nutrients and oxygen and use them to fuel everything you do.
Your body has an incredible ability to grow, heal, and generally stay alive. And without this amazing biochemistry you would not be possible.
