There are few treats quite as delicious (and easy to make) as a bliss ball. Bliss balls and I met a few years ago and it was love at first bite; I wondered where these goodies had been my whole life! I’ve been making up for lost time since – bliss balls make frequent appearances in my kitchen. And now they can do the same in yours! I’ve decided to round up 3 Bliss Ball Recipes for you to enjoy. Spoil that healthy sweet tooth of yours with these delicious goodies:
I am so incredibly excited to introduce my first Health-Esteem King. And not just because gender diversity is a fantastic thing, but because this man is my hero and he means the entire world to me. My dad, Louis Flanagan, has had an incredible Health-Esteem journey and is an inspiration to anyone wishing to make health invoking changes. His story proves that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it.
Louis’ lifestyle revamp allowed him to kick prediabetes to the curb and get off of the high blood pressure medication that he had been taking for 10 years (and assumed he’d be taking for life). He said goodbye to his smoking habit and gave up on his penchant for bread and sweets in exchange for better health. Today he runs 3 to 5 km per day and bikes even further; he recently participated in a 126 km bike run in order to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis!
According to his doctor, it’s far more common to be placing middle aged individuals on medication, not taking them off of it. But Louis’ experiences have allowed him to do just that. It just goes to show that Health-Esteem is for everyone, regardless of your age; our dedication to our health and wellbeing can pay off in ways we never imagined!

If you’re anything like me you love spoiling yourself to something healthy and sweet (that’s the dream). And if it can be quick and easy at the same time you’ve found heaven! I love me an apple crumble, but who wants to wait an hour to get that deliciousness in their belly?!
Turns out you can have your crumble and eat it too! My quest to harbour a healthy sweet tooth has led to the creation of crumbles you can have in your tummy in 15 minutes or less! Super bonus! There’s nothing but healthy goodness here, so your body will be mighty pleased by your offering. It’s a win-win!
Here are the recipes for 3 of my favourite crumble desserts:
I realized something recently. I’ve been living in a cocoon for 4 years. And it was incredibly necessary. When I got sick I retreated inwards. I needed to back away from the world to rest and nurture myself back to health. It was important that I get to know my body and my disease. I needed to learn how to be unapologetically selfish and make myself a priority… to fall in love with myself and create a foundation of self-kindness. I cannot stress how fundamental this has been to my healing with Graves Disease. But my cocoon has become my comfort zone and it’s time to let go.
Healthy smoothies everyday keep the doctor away. Ok, maybe that isn’t always the case, but it does fill you up and provide you with some pretty awesome nutritional goodness! And we all know that a healthy diet keeps our awesome bods pretty happy. So we can’t go wrong!
I share a ton of smoothie recipes on Instagram; they’re my favourite way to greet the morning! I wanted to round up a few of my favourites and make them all available in one convenient place so you can treat yourself too (you deserve it <3).
Here are four fantastic healthy smoothies to help you greet the morning with awesomeness:
Have you ever pined for days long past? Become stuck in the romantic ideas brought on by a nostalgia loop playing over and over in your mind? Felt an ache in your heart for your childhood days? I know I have.
Earlier this summer, I found my mind wistfully replaying the days of old; missing something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Try as I might I couldn’t shake that feeling.
It wasn’t until recently that I found what I had been missing.
