Pre-warning: If you’re averse to TMI or don’t like emotions, leave now. Close the page. Stop reading. This is about to get personal. I will never, and have never claimed to have an eating disorder. But, like many girls, I have had an unhealthy relationship with food as I navigated adolescence and adulthood. And it … Continue reading Sunday Spotlight: Embrace that healthy body, even the rolls.
It's no Toronto, but the dampness of a typical Raincouver day leaves you with the chills. And when a hot cup of tea doesn't fix it, soup does. Full disclosure: I'm not a soup person. Maybe I just haven't found "the one" (prelude to the rest of my life). But when I'm in the mood … Continue reading Bean and Barley Soup

Celebrate labour day and keep the summer feels … Continue reading The Watermelondria

You know all the antioxidants that people rave about in green tea? Yup, those are in matcha too. The toasty taste you get from a cup of Japanese … Continue reading Become a matcha master
Spring has sprung and its time to start acting like it, even if the weather isn't. To celebrate I decided to buy myself a young Thai coconut. Best.Decision.Ever. You should already know about my love affair with coconut everything and that I don't understand people who don't like any and all things coconut (ahem, mother). … Continue reading NUTS for cocoNUT!

I hope you're enjoying the first partial day of spring here in the Great White North. It's the perfect day to be happy (well any day is). The sun is shining, it's not … Continue reading International Day of Happiness!
While beer will be flowing tomorrow, make sure you start your day off on the right foot. This smoothie is also beneficial for the next morning when you say, "Irish I didn't drink so much yesterday." With a whole lot of ginger, spinach and cacao, the antioxidants will be flowing and you'll be seeing green before your … Continue reading Irish you all a happy St. Pat’s!
