Loaded Dates

Loaded Dates

Loaded Dates We’ve all been on one of those dates where we’re sitting across from that person we had high hopes for. It all sounded like a perfect match until you find out they’re in between jobs, sleeping on their grandma’s couch, and spent the last hour giving you way TMI about their last three exes. Well this is a way more satisfying kind of loaded date. If you crave chocolate and sweet treats like we do, you’re gonna love a night in with a hot tea, Netflix, and a few of these bad-boys. Recipe and photo courtesy of Lavinia Todor.   Ingredients: Medjool dates Favorite nut butter Almonds, whole Toppers: Chocolate puffed quinoa Chia seeds Toasted almonds Toasted coconut Strawberries Directions: Cut the dates lengthwise and remove the pit. Then fill them with a little nut butter and the toppings of your choice. Get creative - post below and tell us your favourites! WABAM!  Sweet craving,...
Because something has to change.

Because something has to change.

All we did was google: “fitness magazine covers”. We actually pay people to tell us this sh!t. Even if we don’t buy these kinds of magazines, these messages still scream at us in the market line-up, on highway billboards, and worst of all, where we work out. Marketers need us to feel too old, too fat, and too skinny. We drank the juice, too. For years, WE were buying the same old crap for ourselves. Why? Because we’re born and raised in the fitness industry, where body-shaming was born.  Want proof? Just check out these unfathomable gym ads.  We all fall prey to the cycle of guilt, and we knew we had to do something to change it. It’s always been about taking the power back. This is why Rebellion was born: so we could band together to end the cycle. Listen, there is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, or to look and feel better. What needs to change is who decides how we feel about ourselves, and who decides what we do about it. There is one mother of a difference between striving for a healthy body weight, versus trying to sculpt a huge round butt and a 23 inch waist, just to be validated by Instagram likes.  Right? These messages affect all of us. If you have kids - hell, if you even know a kid - you should care about this A LOT. These are the messages kids and teens are seeing on social media every day. Who do they look up to? YOU. You’re their mom, dad, cool aunt, teacher, mentor, coach. Our...

Rise + CRUSH

Rise + CRUSH

THIS is how Rebels face a new day. In my mid 30s, I committed to Julia Cameron’s simple concept of Morning Pages: hand-writing 3 pages of random thoughts each morning.  It doesn’t matter what goes on those pages, what’s important for me is just getting some of the noise out of my mind so I can tackle the day with some focus.  As life became busier, this didn’t feel possible every day. While I still love this habit and can crush it a couple times weekly, what’s absolutely non-negotiable for me every morning is the Five Minute Journal. For me, some form of journalling and connecting with myself every morning is non-negotiable when it comes to keeping my sanity.  Morning Pages are tough, because mornings are bananas. For most people, the start of the day is filled with other people’s needs and a race with the clock, so finding time to sit for 15 minutes of journalling can seem self-indulgent and full-on impossible.  Lately, I’ve been using Tim Ferris’ book Tools of Titans to help me sit long enough to focus on my journalling.  I read a couple pages for inspo, then grab my pen. Tools of Titans is filled with success tips from zillions of brilliant super-champs Ferris has interviewed, along with his own reflections and gems. This morning my random flip opened the book to Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock’s feature, where he mentions a t-shirt given to him at an Avatar event.  The James Cameron quote on the shirt stopped me in my tracks: Hope is not a strategy. Luck is not a factor. Fear is not...
