Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Green Poutine

Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Green Poutine

Vegan or avoiding dairy and dying to indulge just like everybody else? Well, on one of those days when you just feel like getting a little bad or consuming something a bit heavier, you can head over to Fresh and grab the Green Poutine. The french fries are just french fries, no healthy twist. So, again, it’s not a HEALTH food, it’s an indulgence suited for an infrequent visit, not your daily lunch. But we all need those indulgences.

Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Phytosalad and Trail Mix Power Shake

Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Phytosalad and Trail Mix Power Shake

But it’s not. It’s fresh, delicious and green. Add to that base the sweet greens peas, crispy onions, toasted nuts, fresh mint, nappa cabbage and...

It can come from simply not knowing what decision needs to come next, life pushing things at you and not knowing exactly how or how strongly to push back, or simply feeling discouraged in your strength and physicality. It’s kind of just that feeling of “blah”, when excitement about life either dulls or becomes entirely distracted by stress or resistance.

Music Mondays: Darius – Hot Hands

It’s March! (Doesn’t bloody well feel like it out there, but it is!) So, let’s steam our way through this month until spring. Since we all need a little energy boost and revitalization in the gym, and I am a self-confessed music junkie, I’ve decided to bring back “Music Mondays” and to feature an amazing workout song to add to your playlists every Monday for the next little while. The songs will be super hot, super motivating and will help to keep you pumping on those days when your energy might otherwise be lacking. A great start to the week!
