Happy Friday night! :)
I put together the most popular posts from the past 11 months. It is crazy that I am approaching my first year of blogging on October 31st (stay tuned for a huge giveaway by the way!).
I have been meaning to organize all of my series, boot camps, hot topics, and challenges into one quick and easy to locate page. Many of you have been asking me for a page where you can easily locate everything, so I am happy to finally have this put together. It will be updated frequently too. Let me know if I missed anything and I will add it in.
I have created a page at the top called ‘Hot‘ where you can find all of these posts whenever you need to do so.
Here are some of my most popular posts over the past 11 months! Happy reading!

I’m in this month’s issue of SELF magazine:
I’m in this month’s Self magazine with 5 other awesome food bloggers! I was interviewed back in May of this year and kept it very hush hush until I knew it was in print.
The interview itself was quite long, but due to space constraints it was cut down a lot. They originally asked me to submit one of my favourite vegan recipes (which I did), but they didn’t have enough room to include it. I might just have to reveal it at another time I guess! ;)
I also wanted to say that my favourite substitute for an egg is the flax egg, but there was not enough room to include the description in the space allotted.
All and all it was a wonderful experience and I was surprised to even be considered.
It is on newsstands now. Eric picked up 3 copies today. What a sweetie! :)
Stay tuned for Project Snow tomorrow. I have LOTS of questions on my mind after today’s long run!
I will also be telling you whether I am running a half marathon on Sunday!
