Hello Fresh!

I was really excited when I met someone from Hello Fresh Canada at Veg Expo a few weeks ago. I have loved the idea of having meal prep delivered since the first time I’d heard of it, but as far as I’m aware, its availability in my area is only …

Infinity jars

I see it all the time. People go to great lengths to change their lives and especially their eating habits and then there they are in the lunchroom at work munching on their super health-conscious lunch out of a flimsy department store plastic container. They worked so hard on their …

Intermittent fasting

Okay, here I go with another of these wacky experiments that I periodically try! This one is intermittent fasting. I’ve done a fair bit of reading about it since listening a podcast that introduced me to the idea and here’s the scoop: your body has a lot of real estate …

Soup’s on!

We’ve made a lot of changes recently. We’re running more and taking transit nearly all the time. It’s lacrosse season again and we’re also trying to get out and do a little adventuring. The days are longer, sure, but all this all means is that we are spending less time …

Chlorella

Veg Expo 2017

Ginger mock chicken

When people talk about comfort food, I mostly understand what they’re talking about, but I don’t really get it, to be honest. I don’t know – I think I’m just not someone that really values food in the same way I see others value it. I have friends who truly LOVE …

Lessons in canning

I put canning peaches in my list of things I wanted to do this month on sort of on a whim. On one hand, I have always wanted to learn to can foods, but on the other, it’s always seemed like a really complicated – and, frankly, risky (I’m afraid …

Happy holiday hummus

For each of three holiday events we’ve attended over the past couple of days, I’ve been asked to bring my hummus. I’ve always liked it, but this proves others do too. Sometimes you have to listen to the people. If feelings can be had for hummus, mine would be labelled …
