My only issue is that I know fries aren't exactly the healthiest option. So I decided to come up with three healthier alternatives to french fries. Hopefully these options will satisfy my cravings and I won't have to feel guilty about eating them.

6 Healthy 100 Calorie Snacks To Try

Tuesday February 26, 2013 by Alexandra C.



The other week, I asked the Chick community what their favourite healthy snacks were because lately I've been a cheat. Chocolate, cake and cookies, I'll be the first to admit to having a sweet tooth! 

I'll also be the first to admit that these aren't always the smartest choices, especially when you consider how many nutritious, low cal tasty treats are available and really easy to make!...

Post Holiday Health Rescue: 5 Detox Drinks

Friday January 4, 2013 by Alexandra C.



Overindulging is a well known holiday tradition, right? Only, after the holidays are done, Present Alexandra is not such a fan of Past Alexandra's decision to observe that tradition. I don't know about you but I don't think I can look at another plate of turkey. Or mashed potatoes. Or stuffing. And please, don't even offer me any sort of chocolate or cake. 

To help get...

5 Bad Snacking Habits Made Healthy

Tuesday November 13, 2012 by Alexandra C.



You may already know that I'm a huge snack fiend. I love my munchies while at work, on the go or just lazing about at home. And speaking of lazing about, you may already know that when it comes to food and cooking, I can be a bit (ok, a lot) lazy when I'm making a meal for one. It's so easy for me to just go to the coffee shop, eat a processed snack or if I'm feeling especially...

I am so glad my dating days are behind me.  Especially first dates!  Sure, they can be fun and exciting with all of the newness and anticipation, but they are also extremely nerve-wracking. Aside from the whole chemistry/compatibility question, there is the scariness of The First Kiss. 

Hollywood tells us that this moment is perfectly romantic (or sweetly awkward in the...

My Battle for a Better Nose (and why I'm on round 3)

Tuesday October 9, 2012


Third time's the charm, right?  I'm counting on that.

Plastic surgery isn't something I've ever really approved of because I've heard too many horror stories.  Generally, unless you have a horn growing out of your forehead or a nose that doubles your facial square footage, I think you should leave well enough alone.  And yet, here I am, about to embark on round 3...

Summer fashion is all about colour, colour, colour!  Whether it's saturated hues or creamy pale shades, we love them all.  In fact, there’s only one part of our wardrobe and beauty routines where we shun colour, and that’s on our teeth.

It should come as no surprise that a whopping 90% of Canadians consider their smile to be an essential part of their overall appearance...

I’m from the Midwest originally, so it wasn’t that unusual to the locals when I married relatively young and started a family fairly soon afterward.  It was a bit of a surprise to my uber cool friends who lived in Toronto, put their noses in the air, and cited lofty goals like Getting Financially Stable or Enjoying My Carefree Adult Years as reasons for delaying marriage...
