The Ingredients: Quinoa, carrots, cucumber, tomato, cilantro, apple, cranberries, crushed peanuts lightly dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
For every one cup of quinoa, double up the water and boil. Quinoa is so quick to make, add fruits/veggies and it becomes a great snack on the go.
I decided to step up my beta carotene game this week and use my juicer that I’ve been neglecting for a little while. Two things: carrots and apples, my favourite combo. Clear skin and rosy cheeks please…Footlocker Raptors Dance Pak photoshoot tomorrow!
Until next time Raptor fans!
Yesterday we surprised three lucky season seat holders with a Purolator Package containing their tickets and other Raptors goodies. With the help of Quincy Acy, Terrence Ross, and the always silly Raptor, we successfully managed to surprise them and spread the Raptors spirit. This appearance added to our already growing excitement to get back on the court!
There is nothing the Dance Pak and the fans love more than a funky throwback routine. The 90’s not only produced some of the greatest pop music but also were the beginning of many fun fashion trends that in my opinion should not be forgotten. On this Flashback Fashion Friday I want to remember and pay respects to the wonderful, wacky clothing choices of this decade and encourage the spirit of the 90’s to stay alive in our wardrobes this fall.
Here’s another easy recipe that you can put together in minutes. Feel free to add other ingredients that I haven’t mentioned (as long as they are healthy)!
Dice up the cucumber, tomato and mango together, I sprinkled mine with chia seeds. You can also add other items such as mushrooms, bell peppers, quinoa, wild rice, tofu, shrimp, or chicken.
After you have all your ingredients, start wrapping away!
This past week in rehearsal it was time for us to put on our classic white boots and practice our strut! It’s another step closer to game days, we are getting so excited!
It is Friday the 13th, almost fall, and fashionably speaking the best time of year. Between fresh back-to-school looks and the buzz of fashion week, inspiration is everywhere. To mix things up, my preppy autumn looks took a gothic turn in honor of this superstitious day. Try adding a darker twist to this usually clean and innocent look. Some of my freaky Friday fall essentials are longplaid skirts paired with mesh long-sleeves and layers. Platform shoes and a studded backpack add a funky edge. Keep it classy with a dark feminine hat and a spritz of Gaga’s black fragrance, ‘Fame’.
Happy Friday the 13th,
Hey everyone, Mahta here!
I’m very excited to share with you all some healthy recipes this season! I’ll be focusing on clean eating and making meals/shakes that are quick and easy!
Today’s salad includes: organic kale, red pepper, cucumber, mango, pine nuts, chia seeds
Dressing: olive oil (not too much), light soy sauce, lemon juice, basil, garlic and pepper
Prawns: lightly sautéed in coconut oil, then dressed in lemon juice
And there you have it…a colourful salad to enjoy!
Every game thousands of fans see us in our official Foot Locker Raptors Dance Pak outfits. These fabulous costumes of red, black, and white are what keep us looking like a team, but what do we wear off the court? When matching 19 other girls and red lips aren’t a requirement? Check the FLRDP blog weekly for interesting and fun fashion discoveries I have made and what the ladies of the Dance Pak are rockin’ these days.

A lot of girls have that collection of tight mini dresses that are too boring to wear but too cute to throw out. Instead of letting them take up valuable closet space double their potential with a pair of scissors! Two-piece skirt sets are one of the cutest and most flattering things to hit the streets. Properly accenting the body, the cropped shirt and high-waisted pencil skirt combination give both a sexy and sophisticated look. Whether you cut an old printed dress in half or buy a great solid coloured set, two-pieces are versatile and fabulous!
