30 Minute Workout: Prenatal Yoga

For me, yoga is always a welcome practice.  No matter what kind of day I had, yoga always makes me feel better.

If you are expecting, yoga will not only make you feel better, but it will also teach you many techniques such as breathing and focus that will help you during and after your pregnancy.

Here is a wonderful yoga flow designed with the Mom-to-be in mind.  You can pick and choose which poses you would like to do or do the entire workout.  Illustrations of the poses can be found here and here.

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Dough Balls

I hope you had a wonderful Canada Day! I am sure many of you are still celebrating with a day off today.

I had to work this weekend, but I still managed to squeeze in a little lounge time to enjoy the lovely weather.

I also managed to squeeze in a little bake time.

wanted to create a healthy dough ball using a ripe banana that was past it's prime.  Sure, I could have made some banana bread or soft serve, but I wanted something portable that I could take with me in my travels.

These are super easy to make (only one bowl required) and turned out great. 
The secret is this: Refrigerate your dough.

I have seen this tip in quite a few blogs and it really works!  It really helps all the flavours mesh and makes the dough much easier to handle.
