I love my mom! Gosh I miss her when she is away. Today was so much fun…my mom, stepdad, and I tended to the gardens outside. :) My stepdad taught me soooo much about the plants around our property. He knew every single tree and flower and plant on the whole yard, it was pretty […]


CSA vs. Grocery Bill vs. Garden

hahaha. Let’s just say Sketchie missed his main squeeze yesterday! He didn’t leave his lap all night! So cute :) Who’s cuter: Sketchie or Hubby? I can’t decide! Sorry for the late post this morning. I had an order to do today and I wanted to get it out of the way so I would […]


More Peas, Please

I think I covered my pea bases in today’s lunch. From left to right: The regular pea, black eyed pea, split pea. Who knew there were so many ‘peas’ out there? Today’s lunch was nothing short of wholesome, filling, goodness. Black Eyed Peas ‘Pump It’ Power Lunch On the menu: 1/2 cup Black eyed peas […]


The Powerful Pea

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 […]


The Cake Experiment: Part 4

    I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it. Today was my fiirst day ever using fondant icing! And oh how fun it was. I channeled my inner Bakerella and Pioneer Woman, and dove right in: I used Wilton’s Fondant as well as a wonderful Wilton’s 12 pack gel icing colours:   Gloves […]


A Salad Champ + BBBC Progress!

Let’s just say that my stomach is stretched 5 times its’ normal capacity right now! It is a good thing I took my BBBC measurements before all this food! :) Lunch was another BIG SALAD in my new BIG Ikea Bowl. I was pleased to see that my bowl fit a whole heart of organic […]


Big Salads

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

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?

     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. […]


Spring Has Sprung,

The grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is! Did anyone else’s dad ever recite that when they were younger? My dad still says it to this day! haha. I did a quick google and someone said that it came from the 50’s. Sorry dad! lol. Today is all kinds of good. Let me […]
