Hamilton Hiking Day Two: Tiffany and Sherman Falls! The Photography & Grub


After spending half of the day hiking Webster and Tews falls, we rested our weary legs back at home and geared up for a second day of hiking. I threw this lovely dinner together for post-hike fuel. This salad is a potential cookbook recipe, but if it doesn’t make the cut I will certainly post […]


A Hiking Trip in Hamilton, Ontario: Webster and Tews Falls + Our Photography Backstory


This weekend Eric and I went on a hiking adventure in Hamilton with our cameras, backpacks, and tripod in tote. I totally underestimated how tiring lugging 10 pounds of camera equipment would be while fumbling all over steep trails.

My Journey to Naturopathy: Part 1


My first visit with the Naturopath Doctor was exciting. In a 1-hour consultation, I felt like we made more progress with my health issues than the past few years with my regular family physician.

Organize My Kitchen


Good morning! I’ve been waiting for this moment. Well, actually this moment is bittersweet. While I didn’t want my TJ’s Sunflower Seed Butter to ever end, I was anxious to make Vegan Overnight Oats in it. This was my first time making oats in a jar after seeing it on the blogs for a year […]


In Tune


Good morning! It looks like my long run on Friday and lack of sleep on the weekend really did me in because my body is not bouncing back as quickly as it usually does. I am feeling quite run down this morning! The difference between me now and pre-injury (January 2009) is that I now […]
