Lunch This Week: Chickpea Salad Wraps

IMG_6247

I’m still the world’s laziest lunch maker. Ever. I’m lucky if I make it to the table to sit down like a civilized human being most days. When I’m busting my butt in the kitchen for hours each day, the last thing I want to do is chop more vegetables or do a lot of […]

The Gratitude Challenge

20100917-IMG_7308

I recently made the connection that gratitude and practicing gratitude are two entirely different things. I feel very grateful for the blessings in my life, but on the other hand I know I’m not putting my gratitude into practice very often. It’s one thing to know I’m grateful, but it’s another thing to claim what […]

Easy Weeknight Dinner: Crispy Breaded Tofu Strips & Sweet Potato Fries

IMG_6318

Are pigs flying? I think pigs are flying. Wait, maybe tofu is flying. I know what you are thinking…Ange is eating tofu? It all started a couple months ago when my friend Sarah treated me to an incredible sweet and sour tofu dish for dinner. A heavenly sweet and sour glaze coated crispy baked tofu […]

On The Glow Basic Oatmeal Squares

IMG_6373

There are fancy squares and then there are not-so-fancy squares. These are the not-so-fancy squares. In fact, they are downright boring, but the beauty is you can dress them up anyway you like. Just like a basic bowl of oatmeal, these squares can be changed up on a whim. My goal was to make a […]

By The Time I Get To Phoenix, You’ll Be Rising

IMG_1535

Toto, we’re not in Ontario anymore. We’re visiting the Phoenix area with my mom and John this week. It’s our first time in Arizona and we’re pumped to be here! and a bit scared…    We booked an evening flight, since it was our only option. It’s really strange waiting until almost 5pm to leave […]

Peak A Boo

  Thanks to your helpful suggestions, we had hiking on the brain this morning! Eric and I headed over to Pinnacle Peak for a 3.75 mile there-and-back trek along the mountains. Tomorrow, we have Camelback Mountain on the agenda which many of you raved about. Opportunities for hiking are everywhere around here! We’ve never hiked […]

Camelback Mountain: One Step At A Time

IMG_1831

Anxiety is something that I’ve been trying to understand and deal with my entire life. It works behind the scenes, constantly telling me that I can’t do this or I shouldn’t do that, while other people do those exact things seemingly without much grief. I’ve always been so envious of people, like Eric, who aren’t […]

True Food Kitchen

IMG_1807

On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of lunching at True Food Kitchen at the Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix. Many of you recommended it on the blog and on my Facebook page (thank you!), so we figured it was a safe bet. I later found out that the famous Dr. Andrew Weil (along with restaurateur […]

Toto, we’re not in Arizona anymore. We were hoping by the time we got home, spring would’ve arrived in Ontario! Yea right. I think we are a few months off just yet. I still have a few Arizona highlight posts to show you, so maybe this will make Ontario’s clouds and snow easier to digest. […]

Endurance Crackers

IMG_7234

Remember the chia seed crackers that we ate at Chocolatree Café just before hiking up 0.6 miles of rocky mountainside? Here they are in all their glory. We kicked some major mountain booty that day and I’d like to think the chia seed crackers had something to do with it. After all, the Aztecs and […]
