Guys, I don’t mean to brag, buuuut I hit it out of the park with this one! I was craving a salad, but wasn’t wanting your typical lettuce or spinach based salad. I took a look in the fridge, saw broccoli and went out on a limb with this one. And, boy was it tasty!
Having lived with T1D for nearly two thirds of my life, it took me many years to figure out that food was a major culprit with respect to the highs and lows. You would think that this would be taught by those who are initially responsible for educating you on this disease when you are first diagnosed, and yet I found that there was a link missing in the system that lacked education on nutrition and it’s connection to diabetes.Read More »
For the last month and a bit my fiancé and I have been on the road almost every weekend travelling around the U.K. This past weekend was no different where we hit the road and headed south to London to visit family. Read More »
It’s been just about a month since I packed my bags, jumped on a plane and moved across the pond to the UK. I lived in Canada for 29 years and this is the first time in my life where I will be living away from my family, and in a foreign country. At least the language is the same, but even then I struggle to understand the accent or phrases the locals use that make absolutely no sense to me. Read More »
After a week of feeling completely off, which female hormones are to blame, I finally feel like myself again. I spent the weekend with the people I love most visiting friends and family, went to spin class everyday and ate foods that made me feel happy and nourished. With school coming to an end in just a few short 5 weeks its time for me to buckle down with my studying and exam prep. Nonetheless, a rest weekend before the next couple of weeks of craziness was necessary and much indulged. Read More »
After nearly a year of contemplating to go ketogenic I finally bit the bullet, with some encouragement and a bit of research, of course. It’s been just over a month since I made this lifestyle change, and although still very fresh and new to me, I can already see the impact it has had on my blood sugar control.Read More »
As a Pisces, which is a water sign (yes, I just went there), I am naturally attracted to water. I feel at ease and happy when I am near water. The mere sight of water can have immense healing benefits for the body. Think of how we use hot tubs for hydrotherapy or even bubble baths to soothe our mind and body after a long day at work. Water plays an important role in our health on many different levels.Read More »
Fall is a time for soups, stews and hearty warm dishes. Although it is technically Fall, it has been feeling like Summer with a serious heat wave taking over Toronto the past week. But of course, I didn’t let this stop me from making some of my favourite Fall dishes, just like this hot hot heat didn’t stop the over-hyped annual season drop of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. Note: this recipe is nothing like pumpkin spice, but its got a lot of spicy heat 😉 Read More »
Remember when I said “I make the best decisions when I don’t sit and dwell on them too much”? Well I was kidding myself. But we’ll save that story for another time.
I got home from work the other day with the plan to go for a run, then make a quinoa chick pea salad and bake a new vegan muffin recipe I came up with. Needless to say, I skipped the run and went straight for the kitchen…and the wine. Read More »
