Savory chip and dip recipes are easy to find and simple to toss together. Everyone loves chips and dip. They are simple for the hostess and delicious for guests. I, of course, love to shake things up so playing with sweet flavors of chips and dip is something I enjoy during the holiday season. I have done different sweet dips before and they are always a hit. I thought for this Holiday Season I... read more
I have wanted to write about the best sources of plant based iron for a while now. There is a common misconception that you need to eat meat to reach adequate iron levels. In reality on average meat eaters suffer from equal rates of iron deficiency compared with vegans and vegetarians. Iron deficiency is one of those things most people know about but don’t take as serious as they may want to and... read more
November is World Vegan Month! For us here at DAMY Health this is an opportunity to cleanse, detox and reset. This month is a fantastic time to take a break from meat and dairy and experience the wonderful health benefits of a plant-based diet. To cleanse you do not need expensive juices, supplements or prepared shakes. All you need is a real food, high fiber, nutrient dense meal plan. Our 21... read more
Today I was triggered by an old relationship pattern. I was hurt and frustrated. I found myself (once again) trying to get love, support and friendship from one source that is unwilling to give it to me freely. I, at the same time, was blocking all the other sources of love that were freely flowing to me. I found myself in an old familiar pattern begging someone to love and support me who was... read more
I have, in the past, found myself feeling frustrated and angry from comparing my journey to others’. I would see others’ experiencing (what I perceived) as a smoother journey to health, weight loss, love, relationships, financial security, business success, etc and I would be deeply sad for myself. What I didn’t know then was that their good, what I was seeing as lack in my... read more
I am still (7 years later) in love with roasted chickpeas. I use roasted chickpeas as a snack, on salads, in soups and on top of roasted vegetables. For me they have replaced popcorn, chips, croutons, you name it. I love mixing up my flavors of roasted chickpeas depending on the mood I’m in. This recipe was inspired by Nova Scotia – the place I was born. I have now lived in three... read more
Here in Canada we had our Thanksgiving this past weekend. I usually like to make Holidays special and be sure to create all our favorite Holiday Recipes. This year, however, we had just moved homes and offices so I was really tired out. I decided to cut out our creamy whipped cauliflower, faux cheesy broccoli and desserts keeping our meal super simple yet delicious. I always decide between... read more

This Pumpkin Cheesecake & Ginger Snap Cookie Pie In a Jar recipe is super easy to toss together and tastes amazing. You can play with this recipe and use as much or as little of each layer as you wish. My top tips for making this recipe would be to use small jars as this is a rich and very satisfying dessert. In other words a small serving goes a long way. Also, make sure that your cookies... read more
Amy has been preaching more water, more water, more water for years now. She considers herself a “water pusher” and I would agree with the title. She is serious about it. Anyone who is on or has done the Bikini Body or DAMY Method can attest to this. We tote 1L mason jars full of water around with us everywhere and it wouldn’t be odd to see multiple around our condo going at a... read more
I travel on Vancouver transit every single day and live in an industrial neighborhood. Our closest woodsy area is a 15 min drive away. Living in the “mental and electric chatter” of a city can make a person miserable. This effect is multiplied by our modern culture of multiple social media platforms, easy access to music, unlimited “in the moment” news, wifi, 3G,... read more
I am all about making living a healthy lifestyle as easy as possible. This Caramel Apple Quinoa Breakfast Bowl is a super easy, delicious breakfast option. One thing I do every week to make my life easier (and my husband’s) is make large batches of certain foods to have in the refrigerator for quick-to-grab meals. For example, if I’m making quinoa I make a large batch. I store it in... read more

If you may have noticed the last couple weeks I have been heavy on the smoothies. This is due to me tightening up my summer habits and focusing on my Fall goals. I am firmly on the Bikini Body Program all the time as a way of life but in the summer I find that more cocktails and irregular meal times sneak in. Having smoothies as my mid-morning snack as a way of life on the Bikini Body Program is... read more
In long term health and wellness it’s the simple things. It really is. Minor changes can literally transform your health over time. Amy taught me this in 2008 when we decided to give up all animal protein/products (except fish and eggs for me) for good. I immediately felt different. My allergies, abdominal pain and bloating, headaches and anxiety were all significantly reduced (if not... read more
For many of us when starting a new lifestyle the goal can look too big, too far away, too hard to get to. This thinking loop can stall us from even starting on our way to our goals. This is the biggest lie we feed ourselves and all it does is keep us from moving forward today. Can you lose 20 pounds this week? No. But that should not stop you from creating a better tomorrow, next week, next... read more
You do not have to workout like an athlete to have a healthy, fit and beautiful body. The truth is that how you eat, how you think and the quality of your exercise routine plus consistency is the holy grail. In fact, all weight loss or body consistency transformation results are achieved by consistency and quality of diet (diet meaning the collection of what you consume). 80% of all results are... read more
There is no such thing as a plateau (oh no she didn’t). Yes, yes I did. There is no such outside force blocking us from reaching certain goals. Let that simmer for a moment. This may bring up some feelings for you. Perhaps maybe even – anger. You may be right now going through all the times or a present moment where you feel stuck or aren’t moving forward toward your goals. Take a... read more
It is hot here in Vancouver! We are having a beautiful start to summer. With this heat comes the craving for fresh raw meals and some cold fresh cocktails. During the summer months (for many) these extra cocktails that seem to creep in can be a problem. They don’t have to be. Doing simple things like having a glass of water before and after each cocktail and picking the lightest/healthiest... read more
Weight gain as a society (North American) has been on the rise for the last 30 years… and with it – Type 2 Diabetes. The association of Type 2 Diabetes and obesity has been something most have noticed. It has come to the point where when someone is obese it is almost assumed that they either are already suffering from Type 2 Diabetes or they are in the early stages – often... read more

DAMY Before & Afters
“There is so much to love about DAMY. I love the meal plan, the exercise, the feedback from the coaches and the uplifting emails and quotes. I am not the greatest self motivator, but being with DAMY has been such a big support for me in this area. The meals and exercise programs tell you exactly what you need to do and then you have Amy holding you accountable too. It is just like having a personal trainer and nutritionist with you all the time.”
