Sneaky

Sneaky

Tonight for dinner I tried a new, kinda different recipe: Black Bean Oat Burgers. It was such a satisfying experience! Sorry to sound so lame… but it’s true! These babies were so incredibly easy to make, super healthy & made me feel very accomplished for some reason. I love that these actually look like beef … Continue reading

(Not A) Case of the Mondays

(Not A) Case of the Mondays

Hey sweet things! I’m fading fast here, so this is going to be an ultra-swift posting (hope you don’t mind! ;)) How was your Monday? I know it’s often the most hated day of the week, but I actually kind of like it. That’s right. I said it. I LIKE MONDAYS. Perhaps just a bit … Continue reading

All Of My Favourite Things

All Of My Favourite Things

This weekend there seemed to be quite a few of my favourite things thrown into the mix! This includes my favourite recipe (see below), my best friend’s birthday party (always a good time!), & pretty much an ideal summer Saturday! Friday night after work, I came home & did a quick workout (still doing the … Continue reading

Thursday night, Duncan & I went out with our friends Kerry & Alex for dinner and drinks. We have this good double date mojo going where we go out (probably once every two weeks) & try a different restaurant every time. There are SO many restaurants in Toronto & I feel like one is popping … Continue reading

Tilapia Tacos

Tilapia Tacos

Before tonight, I had never made fish tacos. Part of me thinks that they sound kinda nasty, while the other part had such a drive to try them out! So.. I did :) These babies were DEE-LISH, though my not-so-fantastic camera may lead you to believe otherwise… Tilapia Tacos Serves: 2 Prep time: 15 minutes … Continue reading

I hope you were able to get outside & enjoy some great weather! It really does feel like the official beginning of summer here, which makes me really … Continue reading

Best Salad EVER

Best Salad EVER

Happy Friday! Woooo. What are your plans for the weekend? For once in what seems like a gajillion years, I don’t have any plans tonight. It’s kinda nice, actually. I’m definitely one of those people who needs some time alone just hanging out & relaxing in order to, as my dad would say, “charge my … Continue reading

I can smell summer!

I can smell summer!

Hello world! I feel as though it’s been so long since I’ve done a regular, health & fitness post. Oh how I’ve missed you! Coming back from Europe, it definitely took me a few days adjusting back to healthy food & working out regularly. Surprisingly, I feel that I haven’t lost much of my strength … Continue reading

France

France

Hello lovers! This marks my final recap post of our big trip. The final leg was spent with Duncan’s incredible family in France. The first four nights were spent in Lyon, where Duncan’s brother – Dave – spent the last six months or so doing an exchange through university. Since I knew we would have … Continue reading

Belgium

Belgium

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Belgium? Waffles? Chocolate? Beer? Me too. After spending three nights in Belgium, I can say that many of all three were consumed :) Mmm. Duncan & I spent one night in Bruges (yes, THE Bruges from the Colin Farrell movie, “In Bruges”) … Continue reading
