The Little Tourist

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 28, 2010


I have 20 minutes to write this post before the hockey game!

Let’s get to it :)

The run was fabulous in Toronto this morning! The sun peaked out about 2 miles into our run and it was gorgeous and quite warm for a winter day. I think it got up to 4C! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Celsius temps, 4C in Canada equates with driving with your windows down. bahaha. You think I’m joking but I’m not!

My running buds Krissy and Jess:


You know you are a Canadian Food Blogger when…

You talk about two things on your run:

  2. Food

In that order :mrgreen:


We ran along Lakeshore and it was BEE-U-tiful!


I love running in Toronto because there are so many runners out! We must have passed at least 30 or so. Toronto has a great running community and it is no surprise because the city is very runner friendly in terms of the paths and routes. Such a change from my town where I am one of the only runners on the road and I have to dodge big trucks!


We ran an easy 5.75 miles before making our way to our lunch spot, Freshie, Fresh, Fresh:


Such a quaint restaurant with fun bold colours.


We were thirsty and ordered juices right away.

I had the All Green (cuke, kale, celery, parsley, ginger, lemon) and lemon water:

Cheers for Green things!


Jess and I with some rosy cheeks!


Thank you for all of your suggestions on what to get for lunch!!!

If you selected the Black Bean Burrito– you are the CHOSEN ONE. ;)


I always overlook Fresh’s wraps and go for the bowls, but I am so glad I decided to get this Black Bean Burrito today. It was PERFECTION in a wrap.



It was phenomenal. The chipotle avocado sauce was just superb with the spicy black beans. I never would have thought to pair those flavours, but it worked.


Jess got a wrap too- the vegetable one that Eric loved so much last May!


Krissy ordered off the breakfast menu and got this amazing granola parfait!


She said it was great.


Then we ran another 1.5 miles back to our starting spot! Surprisingly our stomachs were fine and we didn’t feel crampy after eating.


Some of the pictures I take for the blog are so odd. Eric always calls me The Little Tourist because I always take random pictures of things whenever we go out! We could be going to Wal-Mart and I will take a picture of the Wal-Mart sign!

I love Toronto…visiting is fun. As far as big cities go, it is quite clean and very safe!

We ran a total of 7.35 miles and it was done at a very easy, conversational pace. Just perfect for a longer run outside! I think it took us around 1 hour 15 mins. (including stops).

I don’t think I need to tell you what I am going to watch now!!!!

I believe everyone in Canada (and their dog) will be glued to the screen for the big Gold medal game at 3:15pm EST.

Team Canada has their work cut out for them today. Team USA’s goalie, Miller, is probably the best goalie in the games and if he brings his A-game tonight it is going to be tough. With that being said, Canada has a very strong team and being on home ice does give Canada that X-Factor! It will definitely be a great match-up that is for sure. :mrgreen:

I can’t believe the closing ceremonies are tonight! My gosh, I am going to be SO sad when the games are over! The past two weeks sure did bring a lot of cheer to our dreary winter season!! I am so proud of Canada for setting a record for Gold medals too!

I have a very, very exciting March Madness Glo Bar announcement coming up hopefully tomorrow! It will be a first for Glo Bar variety packs…very excited.

Some of you were asking me about the Fresh cookbook. I don’t own it so I can’t really comment on it, but I heard from a few people that the recipes are quite time consuming to make. If anyone out there has made some of the recipes and wants to comment on the cookbook that would be great! :)


Annie February 28, 2010 at 10:04 pm

Fresh looks awesome! Rarely can I find places that offer veggie juices. I also can rarely find running buddies! You were a lucky lady today!


Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday February 28, 2010 at 10:12 pm

You’re right about Canadian food bloggers! haha.

I love Fresh. One of my favourite restaurants in T.O.


Crystal February 28, 2010 at 10:27 pm

I am so happy about the game! :) I watched it today, too. It started at noon for us BC West Coasters!
Toronto looks like a lovely city. Victoria is also very nice but lacks (imo) in the healthy eating restaurants. Glad you enjoyed your time out with your friends!


Lauren February 28, 2010 at 10:32 pm

When I’m around town taking pictures of random stuff I always think that people must think I’m from somewhere else! If only they knew. ;)


nelly February 28, 2010 at 10:43 pm

we wonnnnnnnn! woot!!!

*happy dance*

It was so warm today! It’s bad when 4C feels balmy and you have the windows open eh? I <3 toronto, its so beautiful.


Jenny (Green Food Diaries) March 1, 2010 at 1:45 am

mmmm i adore fresh. defs down for it anytime!


Sarah March 1, 2010 at 5:13 am

4C and you drive with the windows *down*??? OMG! I live in the Mediterranean, so anything below 20C demands thick winter coats, heating, and CLOSED windows. LOL!

I think it’s really amazing how people can adjust to their surroundings so that the heat/cold doesn’t bother them so much.

Glad you had a great day with your friends!


Miss March 1, 2010 at 7:12 am

Yeaaaaaah Crosbyyy!!
I’m so glad they decided to put Luongo in net – Miller is an unreal goalie, it was the only thing we could do to have a change, in my opinion. (Brodeur is an amazing goalie too, he’s just past his prime.)


Kristina @Mendonpondmusings March 1, 2010 at 8:39 am

Love seeing you and your friends bundled up for the run. Us cold weather runners need to represent!


AGS March 1, 2010 at 8:53 am

Congrats to all Canadians on the win!


Miriam March 1, 2010 at 9:23 am

What a game!! :)


Jenn @ Livewellfit March 1, 2010 at 9:44 am

You ladies are rockstars!!! I wish there were more places around like Fresh! I love eating that way but whenever we are out…there are rarely choices that have delish food such as that. So sad!!


Allison @ Food For Healing March 1, 2010 at 10:11 am

the hockey game rocked my face!!!

I’m sad now that the Olympics are over, i surprisingly watched quite a bit of them. But The Biggest Loser is back on tomorrow (Tuesday) so i am happy about that.


Sophie @ yumventures March 1, 2010 at 10:26 am

Congrats on the W-I-N!!


Heather March 1, 2010 at 10:51 am

yum that granola parfait looks so yummy!


Meredith March 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm

I ran along the Lakeshore yesterday too! The 3rd picture you posted – we ran past there and I remember saying to my friend how weird those looked without the boats next to them!

Glad you had a great run, looking forward to the Glo announcement!


Katy ( The Balanced Foodie ) March 2, 2010 at 9:14 am

I want to go to Toronto so bad! Love this run and the meal!! What a fun day.


Therese March 3, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Could you share the strength exercises that you think have been helping your knees? I started running again about 2 months ago and I’m having some on-and-off trouble with my right knee. Thanks!

I’m sad now that the Olympics are over, i surprisingly watched quite a bit of them.Are more crunches and cardio necessary or one more than the other? My waist is 29 inches around the belly button, but below my ribs is 26 inches (smallest part of my waist). I am looking to lose my “layer” of fat over my stomach so my abs are more defined for a beach vacation. any suggestions?
