The Rebel Kitchen

The Rebel Kitchen

Stock your kitchen like a Rebel. The biggest secret to success is PREP.  Get your planning done and your pantry cleaned out!  Here are some of our favourite ways to make meal prep fun. Everyone’s body needs different food…there is no “one-size fits all” meal plan that really “works”.  Do your own research, note what foods make you feel amazing, and which don’t agree with you. We share what works for us. When it comes to food and diet trends, we choose to be fans of science and are always wary of the endless fear-based marketing messages.  Is it necessary to buy organic + hormone-free? Is there something really wrong with the favourite foods you’ve been eating for years? We think it’s all about balance and eating the best food you can, when you can. WHAT WILL I EAT? Every body needs different food. This is why the one-size-fits-all meal plans you may have received during fitness challenges before DID NOT WORK FOR YOU. You should not feel deprived, hungry or miserable about food, during challenge season. Rebel meals should be full of healthy, delicious food that you LOVE. Along the way, we’ll be sharing our favourite ways to amp up our eating for maximum health and vibrancy. We’ll also be sharing our favourite ways to time meals. Will they be right for you?  We’ll help you know how to decide. Do you have any health concerns related to diet? Do you ever feel the following after you eat? bloating abdominal pain or cramping nausea headaches and brain fog Food has a major impact on our health and wellbeing, and we need...

Get a Revkor™ Body.

Get a Revkor™ Body.

Erin Moraghan runs Revkor™ with her superstar partner Angela Rivard. She is a writer, Revkor™ instructor, yoga teacher, and business-builder. But who really cares? We’re here to talk about kale and muscles. Let’s do this! This is a Revkor™ body.  You can have one too. The photo in this post is of Angela Rivard, my business partner.  Pretty jacked, huh?  She’s not a fitness model, and certainly NOT photoshopped. She’s a real person just like us. A busy, driven, dynamic entrepreneur, small business owner, and single mom with all the demands and craziness as the rest of us.  And also like us, she loves herself a juicy burger, a big Cabernet, and a Friday night chocolate binge. So what makes her different? People ask her all the time: “Why do you look the way you do? What other workouts are you into?” We always have a good laugh about this.  If you know Ange, then you know she eats, sleeps and breathes Revkor™.  Sometimes we joke - what do people think? That she has a secret stash of weights in her back office?  That she wears a disguise to Crossfit to get ripped? I first met Angela just over a year after she started FLXyoga. Angela was strong, smart, and in fabulous shape, but things were about to rev up her awesome-factor…big-time. In early 2014 Angela developed her first FLXmix sequence.  I saw something completely transform in her.  YES, I saw a physical evolution but something else was evolving.  Angela had found her calling and the business hit its stride.  FLXyoga was already blowing people away, but Mix sequences were just what people’s bodies...
5 Ways to CHOOSE your best day.

5 Ways to CHOOSE your best day.

 Are you on auto-pilot?  Overloaded?  Sacrificing workouts because you feel too damn busy? We’ve got you covered. Most days we wake up, reach for the phone, and check all our emails and social media before our feet even hit the floor.  We all do it, and we all know it’s the best possible way to have a crappy start. For most of us our mornings are a routine race against the clock instead of the glorious fresh start they should be. Revving up our commitment to fitness and healthy living is pointless if it’s adding stress…there’s no use building our strongest, hottest bod if we’re shaving years off our lives by feeling like we’re constantly racing to make things happen Here are our 5 favourite ways to slow down and CHOOSE awesome. Screenless mornings. Let’s wake up and BE in our world.  Our emails and newsfeeds aren’t going anywhere, right?  Let’s take ONE HOUR in the morning to wake up and set the tone of the day before diving into technology.  Enjoy morning coffee and breakfast.  Put some good music on.  Take ten minutes and jot down a few goals and even a few things we’re grateful for.  Now THAT’S a sure-fire way to start the day right. Cut yourself some slack. Adopting healthier habits isn’t about hating ourselves every time we fall of the rails and have a secret poutine binge in the car.  Not that I would ever do anything like that - I’m just saying, people might accidentally go through the drive-through. Cheesy fries covered in gravy can happen, especially to Canadians. What do you do?  Press the Revkor™ Reset Button of...
Hot-Date Goodness!

Hot-Date Goodness!

These are raw, vegan and gluten free, and make a great treat to satisfy your clean-eating chocolate cravings.  Even though there’s no sugar added, the dates are loaded with natural sugars so enjoy in moderation.  This makes a great energy-boosting pre-workout treat. Make it happen: Square: 1.5 cups whole raw almonds 1.5 cups organic oats 3/4 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut 1/2 tsp sea salt 35 Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped (3 cups) 1/4 cup coconut oil 1/2 cup water Chocolate Topping: 1/3 cup coconut oil 1/3 cup raw cacao powder 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey vanilla For the squares: Throw raw almonds, oats, and dates in food processor, mix until it becomes small crumbs. Mix in coconut, coconut oil, and water slowly.  Add only as much water as you need to help the mix become sticky. Spread over parchment-lined 8″x8″ cake pan and put in the freezer for an hour. Meanwhile… For the chocolate: Over very low heat in a small saucepan, add all ingredients and stir thoroughly to combine.  Pour slowly over well chilled and set squares.  Option to add a good sprinkling of pink salt.  Return to the freezer for one hour. Chop into 2″ squares and keep refrigerated. #revkorshred....
