Untitled-3

Last week, a blog reader, Mary, asked me if I could put together a post on healthy lunches that could be made ahead of time. I thought it was a great challenge for back to school, so I got to work planning! I spent a few days coming up with different lunches that could be […]

A Feel Good Lunch Bowl

Even though it’s the dead of winter and all I want to do is crawl under the blankets with some hot cocoa and a chocolate bar, I’ve been making an extra effort to increase my veggie intake. The more veggies I eat, the more chocolate I can have, after all. It’s simple math. Some days […]

A simple roasted butternut squash salad

Last year my dear friend Karly mentioned that she started seeing a business coach. She was struggling to find balance with her quickly growing career while juggling a busy personal life, and found some much needed support and accountability with a coach. Consider me intrigued! I admire her for taking the initiative to get outside […]

Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]

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 […]

I absolutely love the work I do each day; given the choice, I wouldn’t pick any other field, which feels pretty awesome after following an unexpected, winding path to get here. (When I started the blog way back in 2008, I had just graduated with a Master’s degree in Social-Personality Psychology and was working as […]

Back On Track II Cilantro Lime Spelt Berry Salad

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 […]

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 […]

Buckwheat Tabbouleh

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 […]
