We soaked up every minute with my parents today. I was so sad that they had to leave tonight. It was such a short visit, but I was so happy to be able to spend this time with them in this glorious weather to boot! We started off the morning like any mother/daughter would: Green […]

The Powerful Pea

365

Somewhere along the line, split peas (a legume) got pushed to the side in favour of the nutritionally inferior regular green pea. Split peas are super high in both protein and fibre, making them a wonderful option for vegetarians and those looking for a lasting satiety in their meals. In just 100 grams of uncooked […]

Big Salads

IMG_9197

Did I mention that I like big salads? Me and big salads go way back. In university I used to have a big tuna salad every day at lunch, complete with bagged zero-nutrient iceburg lettuce. You know the bagged kind of iceburg lettuce that is supposedly ‘pre-washed’ and comes with tiny slivers of carrots and […]

The Hunger Monster

fixups

Since the weather was so beautiful outside today, I decided to do some gardening for my ‘exercise’ of the day: I raked, and raked, and raked the flower beds! Until I got some nasty blisters! I put gloves on but they didn’t help. Tulips??   The plant below looks like chives…I’m so confused! hahaha. More […]

Orange Ya Stuffed?

IMG_9090

     This morning I had a new fruit in my Green Monster. Can you guess what it was? Clue: It’s juicy, it’s orange, and it’s large. Cantaloupe! I don’t know why I hadn’t tried this in my GM’s before because this was really delicious! It tasted really fresh with a hint of cantaloupe flavour. […]
