IV Drip Therapy

These past few months I have made a lot of changes in my life and unhealthy habits. I have been eating healthier and working out a lot more and I have been having a lot of fun doing it. Growing up, I never played sports or on a team and missed out on a lot of physical activity. Now that I am dedicating that time to workout pretty hard,  It’s starting to catch up to me. I had been feeling like I was lacking some nutrients and it was holding me back from how hard I really want to push myself in a workout. I have been looking for ways to boost my energy and stamina during a workout and eating healthy wasn’t enough.

I recently came in contact with Whole Life Balance and felt life this was the perfect time for me to check it out. They offer IV Drip Therapy, which sends vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream and surpasses the digestive system. Drips contain magnesium, calcium, various B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12) and vitamin C. IV vitamin therapy can be used to treat and aid endless conditions and Whole Life offers a variety of Drips depending on what your body needs.

When I arrived, Sandra and Chris (the owners) were so kind and welcoming. Throughout the entire process, they were always around to answer any questions or concerns very honestly and confidently. The ambiance is relaxed and calming but still really professional. I absolutely loved it and already noticed a difference in my overall health.

I really do recommend this process for anyone struggling with their health. Whether it’s IBS, stress, chronic fatigue, hangovers, viral infection or even cancer.

If you are interested IV Drip Therapy definitely email or call Sandra and Chris and book an appointment.It is such an effective way to boost your immune system and just feel your best. Let them know that you heard about them through me and they will be happy to hear. You can also use my code WLBLOVESFRECKLES15 to save some money!

Stress-free Saturday

Stress can be a huge problem for many of us and sometimes it can seem impossible to manage. It can be difficult to avoid the feeling of being stressed and at times, can be even harder to de-stress yourself. I find that really focusing on that one thing at a time is the best way to eliminate stress. Another thing that I find really helpful, is to develop a healthy habit. (Thank me later for this one). You will learn so many great things about yourself that you didn’t know you were capable of. Whether it’s cooking or baking, taking a fun class, doing something crafty or eating healthier. I recently picked up some knitting needles and started to make a blanket for myself to snuggle up in. Hard to believe I’m 20 when I have the same hobbies as a 70-year-old woman. 

Aside from the tips I listed above, I also like to visit a few of these places down below. 

 

 

CIVELLO SALON AND SPA – QUEEN STREET

 This morning a visited Civello for a massage. I felt tense before I arrived and was in desperate need for some “me” time. I always request Arlene when getting spa services done at Civello on Queen because of my previous positive experience. She is very sweet and does an amazing job. I highly recommend booking your appointment with her. After my massage was done, I felt amazing and refreshed. The experience at Civello is one of a kind and really helped me de-stress.

 

VILLAGE JUICERY

For the first time today, I tried a breakfast bowl from Village Juicery. I have heard a lot of great stuff about their juices and they are pretty popular on social media. They run a small pop-up in Lulu Lemon on Queen West. I love the minimalist look that the company uses on their packaging. I got the Probiotic bowl with Coconut Yogurt, Chia Seeds, Hand Made Sunflower Seed Milk, Seasonal Fruit, Pumpkin Seeds, Hemp Hearts, and Vanilla. This made me feel awesome because I began my day with a healthy meal.

 

CLANCYS BOXING ACADEMY

Honestly, I haven’t done this in a while but when I was regularly going to classes; I felt amazing. Boxing @ Clancys is such a fun and easy way to make your stress disappear. Hitting the punching bag can be a relief for your stress or anger. The instructor Kristina, was always motivating and fun. I recommend taking one of her classes, she is very helpful and informative.

Basil Box – Toronto

This past Monday, I visited Basil Box @ Ryerson University . I had been eyeing this place for a while now and everything looked so yummy on their Instagram account. Going out for Asian inspired dishes is my favourite. The style of the restaurant is build your own meal style, which I love! Customizing my options is great because sometimes I can get a little picky sometimes. You begin with a base for your bowl. The options are noodles, rice or greens. Next you add in your veggie options, proteins and last sauces and toppings.

What I really love most about Basil Box, is that there options for any type of diet. Every option on the menu is Gluten Free (Sauces and all). I love this because most places only have one or two options for those who are Gluten free. There are also options for those dairy free or vegan as well.

All the employees are super friendly and helpful. One worker, Phoebe was assisting us was awesome and very polite! Everything is super clean and organized at the Basil Box and is a pretty big space. You can get your food to go if you are in a hurry or are pressed for time. This is a great place to grab lunch quick while at school and honestly have enough to eat later on in the day also.  The bowls are filling and  affordable. If I went to Ryerson, I would probably be here everyday.

I have honestly found my new obsession, I am so glad that I tried Basil Box and wish I had tried it sooner.

Thank you BASIL BOX for the delicious food!

Impact Kitchen – Toronto

This is a place I had been meaning to go to for a while now and was really excited about taking my Gluten Free boyfriend here. This is because their entire menu is Gluten Free friendly and there is so much to choose from. I was introduced to Impact Kitchen through Instagram and thought this would be a good place to try out with someone that has a Gluten Free diet and see how they like it too.

We went this Saturday around 1:30 for a late lunch and ordered a few things. We each ordered a “Power Bowl” and shared a salad. Surprisingly there was a lot of food, usually I find that healthy food restaurants still leave me hungry. I was honestly full until dinner that evening and felt amazing throughout the day. We ordered two different bowls the Asian Rainbow Slaw and the Zesty Mexican. They were both amazing, although I liked the Slaw better.. Just felt like it was more my kind of meal. The salad we chose was the Beet Citrus Salad, which was so refreshing on such a hot day. I loved the salad and would honestly eat one everyday if Impact was closer to my house. Everything we got was very good and I highly recommend ordering them when you check them out.

I loved the atmosphere of Impact Kitchen, just made me feel really healthy and fresh. Its super clean in there and the servers really make you feel at home. This is a place that a lot of athletes come to eat because the menu is so pure and healthy. They use local farmers for the menus ingredients and don’t use processed foods, which is great!
I can’t wait to go back to impact Kitchen and try out some new things. I really did love it here and is a great place for anyone who is Gluten Free or just wanting something healthy and fresh to eat.

Daily Press Juicery 

Recently, I began a project with Daily Press Juicery on Queen W. They set me up with a mild cleanse package that they offer in their store. I always wanted to do something like this only because I thought it looked kinda cool and the way that i felt, I might do it more often! I feel super energized and don’t feel glued to my bed in the morning. I haven’t really been craving foods that much and honestly when I am hungry I am going to eat. I will never let myself starve, so before reaching that point I would drink some more of the juice. After that, if I was still hungry I would just eat something super light and try to stay away from carbs. This is very hard for me to not eat a lot of solid food, considering that I work in a bakery.

I think that everybody should check out Daily Press Juicery in Toronto, because only after the first few bottles I felt amazing. I picked up the reboot kit because it’s a milder cleanse for beginners, Although; most of the drinks are the same in the expert cleanse. My fav drink so far is the Mylk, which is dairy free and super yummy!

Thank you again Daily Press Juicery! 💗✌🏻️


Skinny Mint Teatox

Recently I had been sent a package from Skinny Mint to try out their 28 day teatox. This was something I had been wanting to try out for the longest time, but I was a bit sceptical on these types of teas. Before starting this 28 day tea cleanse (in the process of completing ATM) I did a lot of research about what these types of products really do for your body. Most of the information I had come across was WARNING material. A product that contains a form of laxative is not “healthy” to your body for everyday use. Although the evening cleanse is for every other night, this may or may not be beneficial to your overall health. But one major tip I had read, was to drink a lot of water during the evening cleanses. This is because you are reducing excess “waste”….

The morning that I began my journey with Skinny Mint; I woke up feeling amazing and ready to begin this process to a more fit me lol.  I let the tea steep for a few minutes and then sipped on my morning boost. After I finished my tea and breakfast, the gym was next on my agenda. I must say, I am quite the procrastinator when it comes to working out. For  some reason, whether it was the tea or my positive energy that morning… I had an amazing workout! I had tons of energy and didn’t feel as tired like usual.

I am continuing to take the morning boost tea just to give my self that extra bit of energy, plus it tastes pretty good. But as for the evening tea, it personally does not really fit my lifestyle. I don’t feel the need to take a product that is going to cause cramping or give me the sudden urge to run to a bathroom. I’m sure if I took the evening cleanse as directed, I would see more obvious results.

I will continue to drink the morning boost tea, and I do recommend this product for someone who needs a little more energy in the morning or during the day! As for the night cleanse, it is probably amazing for someone who has a less busy schedule and can spend a few hours in the bathroom. 🙊

Thanks again Skinny Mint for sending me this teatox 💕
