High Protein Vegan Breakfast Burrito

IMG_7688

I like to think there are a few different types of “breakfast people”: Those who prefer sweet breakfasts. Those who prefer savoury breakfasts. Those who enjoy a mixture of the two.   I think I’m somewhere in the middle, so I guess I would say #3. What about you? While I don’t enjoy super sweet […]

Homemade Vegan Caesar Cocktail

IMG_7627

Have you ever had a Caesar or Bloody Mary cocktail before? Caesar’s were my absolute favourite drink growing up- the virgin, non-alcoholic kind, mind you! It was a rare occasion when my family wouldn’t have a few supersized bottles of Mott’s Clamato in our pantry. If our stock ran out, my sister and I would […]

Busting Boredom on the Treadmill: 5 Mile & 5km Workouts

IMG_7593

When I hear the word treadmill, a few words come to mind: Boring. Repetitive. Dull. Auto-repeat. Nooooooooooooooooooo. You too? My reaction is mostly because I tend to fall into major treadmill ruts. I’ve recently discovered if I don’t consciously make an effort to create interesting treadmill workouts, then I really only have myself to blame […]

IMG_7490

Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]

Lucky for you, patience is not my strong suit. I made this recipe a while ago with grand plans to save it for the cookbook, but I really couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. Especially on Valentine’s Day. That would just be cruel. It all began when I saw an incredible looking cookie dough […]

Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

Rekindling a Love for Racing

IMG_6538

Have you ever had a hobby or activity that you love and let it get away for a while? And a lot of time goes by and you start to wonder if you’ll ever get back into it? That’s sort of what happened to me with running races. In 2009, I got hooked on races […]

“Battered” Fried Chickpeas & Chickpea Basil Pesto

IMG_7431

This battered chickpea recipe happened completely by accident. Accidents don’t usually happen in my kitchen, unless we’re talking about the bad kind. Like when my processor exploded while making this pesto… Or when the blender decided to erupt, exploding Green Monster lava all over the kitchen. Or those (many) times when I plugged in the […]

A few months ago, I told you that I was in talks with publishers about my cookbook proposal and today I can finally tell you the news after sitting on it for a few weeks. I’m thrilled to tell you I will be writing my first cookbook! Without a doubt, none of this would be […]
