I’ve been obsessed with blueberries lately! And who can blame me? Full of phytonutrients, including tons and awesome antioxidants (which are extra good for us thyroid disease warriors). Bursting at the seams with nutrients like vitamins C and K, manganese, copper and fiber. Blueberries offer cardiovascular and vision support, they help promote optimal cognitive benefits and have favourable effects on our blood sugar (source). With all this (and my obsession) in mind, I decided to create a blueberry milkshake. It’s to die for!

Nothing goes hand in hand with winter quite like Hot Chocolate. When the winter chill has weaseled it’s way into your core, a nice, steaming cup of hot chocolate does wonders to loosen it’s grips. My husband LOVES it… I think many of those living in a winter wonderland are hot chocolate fans. Unfortunately, I am the odd man out. I’m not a fan of hot drinks… and so, I often enjoy my ‘hot’ chocolate cold. Thank goodness for freezers. But, hot or cold, the flavour is always marvelous. Chocolate is the ultimate soul food, am I right?!
