Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

I’m a big time green smoothie lover and recently I’ve been doing some experimenting with new ingredients. About a month ago I ordered a few specialty health food items that are a little bit difficult to find around where I live. One of those items […]

Winter Vegetable Dahl

As the holiday season winds down, it seems as though cold and flu season is just starting to rev up, for me anyway. I’ve ben waking up to itchy ears, a stuffy nose and a nasty sinus headache. For the last two weeks I’ve been […]

Welcome Home Mac ‘n “Cheese”

Welcome Home Mac ‘n “Cheese”

Lots of exciting news to share. First thing’s first, this past Friday my big sis left on her big Scottish adventure. Emma is on exchange in Scotland for the next five months. I am hopeful that I will have a chance to head over to the United Kingdom in the spring to pay her a visit and get a tour of her new (temporary) digs. I’ve never been to Europe, so it would be an amazing experience to get a chance to travel over there. Em and I are huge fan of the show Outlander, which is set in Scotland. I’ve been wildly searching Pinterest for Outlander-themed day trips that Em and I can do if I come over to visit. If any of you are Outlander fans and are going to be in Scotland anytime soon, I definitely recommend that you check out this pin. I’ve already sent it to Emma and she’s pretty hyped about it.

  Hi all! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. My family had a three-day Christmas celebration this year and I must say I’m pretty worn out from all the festivities. I’ll give you a little run-down of how my holiday went. With t-minus […]

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

I feel as though we kind of got cheated on autumn this year. We went from the crappy, raininess of August to the unbearably hot days of September and October and now we’ve just survived the yuckiest month of the year (in my opinion), November. […]

Pick-Me-Up Green Smoothie

Pick-Me-Up Green Smoothie

During this time of the year I think we all could use a bit of a pick-me-up, right? I’m usually pretty tired when I get home from work, but the fact that it starts to get dark at around 4:30 is definitely not helping to prevent my afternoon energy levels from plummeting. Sometimes before I leave for work in the morning I like to whiz up a quick smoothie to store in the fridge for later. Pre-making smoothies works great for me because by the end of the day I’m too lazy to blend one up and typically end up reaching for an easier snack that isn’t as great. (more…)

A Vegan Food Adventure in Hamilton + A Happy Discovery

A Vegan Food Adventure in Hamilton + A Happy Discovery

I have just returned home from a lovely weekend of visiting friends. Last week when I got my work schedule and saw that I didn’t have to work Friday – Monday I jumped at the opportunity of being able to get away for a few […]

Socca with Grilled Roots and Golden Hummus

Socca with Grilled Roots and Golden Hummus

As November sets in I have found myself in need of a good pick me up. It seems as though we completely skipped nice fall weather and went straight into the crappyness of November. I mean, I can’t really complain too much about the weather because we […]

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

It seems as though fall is finally arriving. With the last few days reaching above twenty degrees (Celsius that is) it has been an unusually hot October. Now that it actually feels like autumn, I think it’s best to say a formal “goodbye” to summer. (more…)

Forever Nuts Loaf + A Challenge

Forever Nuts Loaf + A Challenge

The other day I was in a Davids Tea in downtown Kingston. They had a great deal where if you bought two tins of tea you would get the third one free. I’m a big tea fan so this deal was pretty great for me. I spent […]
