Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad

20101023-IMG_8372

The changing of the seasons typically coincide with changes in my workout schedules. As the temperature dropped over the past few weeks, I started to shift my outdoor runs to the lunch hour. By the time midday strikes, the temperature has usually warmed up by 7-10 degrees Celsius which is substantial when you are running […]

I deemed that this week is officially my Get Back On Track Week! Over the past few weeks, my eating, exercise, and home life/work routines have been all over the place. Wait, who am I kidding, my life has been all over the place since September actually! My goal for the next few days is […]

Happy April Fools! Did you play any practical jokes on anyone yet? Please do tell. :) I must say I did something pretty cruel to Eric! I’m not the practical joke kind of person, but this year I was feeling extra devious. I whipped up a couple of super salty cookies last night (I literally […]

As my mom always says, Good things come to those who wait! Because Eric was such a good sport about my April Fool’s Prank, I made him a batch of The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (with CHOCOLATE chips!) on Saturday. He claimed that he is ‘bringing every single cookie to work’ and he ‘just might […]

I make a lot of savoury and sweet recipes, but one of my all-time favourite things to make is a high-protein & high-fibre salad packed with veggies, grains, beans, and herbs. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than taking simple ingredients and turning them into a drool-worthy dish that will keep me full for […]

Asparagus and Potato Salad

Oh, long weekend, we will miss you dearly! It rained yesterday on and off but we still managed to get some work done outside. Eric finished installing the railing posts and he started the fascia boards along the edge. It gives a lovely polished effect! Meanwhile, I tended to the garden beds while the worms […]

Refreshing Cucumber Salad with Creamy Mint Dressing

Happy June 1st! Lately, my meals have been all about the H20. It’s easy to get dehydrated without knowing it, but I have to be especially mindful of my water intake now that I’m taking the hot yoga classes, sweating out water I didn’t even know was there. One way that I sneak in a […]

Good morning to you! On Tuesday night, I made Kath’s Know Your Roots Salad which features golden beets, wheatberries, sunflower seeds, beet greens, and sweet potato. Eric and I both went crazy over it. Golden beets are one of my favourite vegetables! If you have not tried them I highly encourage you too. They are […]
