Beautiful Weekends in Ontario – Kortright Centre, Green Living Show, Live Organic Food Bar.

While I always like travelling, I love finding places to call home in the city I call home. This weekend was spent being busy discovering all those things that made me fall in love with Toronto and the surrounding area in the first place. This city is always full of some kind of interesting event. […]

Things I Love Thursday – Wedding Edition.

I’m going to take a break from reminiscing about the very awesome lovely Boston trip we had and all the fabulous things we ate, to talk about something that I keep getting asked about all the time… When is the wedding? Do you have a date yet? How’s the wedding planning going? etc. Short answer, […]

West End Food Co-op: Fermentation 101 – Sauerkraut

Last week we went to the West End Food Co-op’s Fermentation 101 workshop and made Sauerkraut with nice big green heads of local Ontario cabbage. The class was taught by James Partanen and I think JC and I took a lot away from it. So how do you make sauerkraut? (the simplest version)

April – Clean Thyself #30DaysofGOOD Challenge

When I was still working from home the house was much cleaner than it is now. I’ll admit, spending 10-12 hours outside of the house, and then coming home… the first thing on my mind isn’t to organize the pantry. But it’s time for some spring cleaning, and conveniently GOOD is doing a 30-Day Spring […]

Healthy Fit Vegan Action – Training for the WWF CN Tower Climb.

So sometime earlier in March (okay March 5th) I had expressed a feeling of malaise, and just generally not feeling as healthy as I could be. I made several positive changes, but not all of the goals I’ve set out to complete have happened. I’ve been picking better quality lunches (but still haven’t been bringing […]

Tiffinday Vegan Lunch Delivery – More please

Tiffinday was started sometime back in mid 2010 by Seema Pabari as a vegan, tiffin-based lunch time delivery service for downtown Toronto. You put in your order on the website before 3pm the day before, and then you get a nice hot lunch the next day sometime between 11:30am and 12:30pm. Things I love: Delicious […]

My first taste of The Depanneur supper club – a drop-in dinner.

I had vaguely known about the Rusholme Park Supper Club before last week, but I hadn’t checked them out. A friend from Saskatoon, my former Rosebud Burlesque instructor, and former Toronto resident connected me with a local veg foodie – Emily Z, and it seems she is often the vegan food chef extraordinaire at the […]

Eating with a Cause: 1 Week – 3 Fundraisers

My usual partner in eating, JC, is currently in Fabulous Barcelona on business, so yesterday I went to the Chili For Charity – All You Can Eat Chili Fundraiser at Sadie’s Diner (504 Adelaide Street West, Toronto) by myself. I love that Sadie’s does these events and for a variety of causes, it just makes me […]
