Dinner Salad

Salad for dinner was something I started enjoying back as a vegetarian. Yes, vegetarian. Was a long time ago and while I feel great not eating meat, that is not something I’m keen to do again. As a kid salad was part of every dinner, it was not the main meal. Salads for any meal…

Tired All the Time?

Ironically on two separate occasions the issue of “feeling tired all the time” came up. This is a feeling that I am not completely familiar with.  While I take my B vitamins (B100 and B12) iron because I’m deficient, have a coffee in the morning and often a green tea in the afternoon, I attribute…

Summer Salad 

Ok so I clearly have a thing for Mexican flavours. I just can’t eat enough cilantro, especially in the summer time.  Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with some friends and checking out Thunderbird (Tbird) Showpark. It’s pre-wedding day and had to get the Farm looking good for the big day tomorrow for my…

The Biggest Lesson I’ve learned…Being Single

My friend Eddie pointed out that in my post about what I’ve learned since being single (#singlesowemingle), I missed one key point.  He said that when we are single we begin to develope our sense of self and figure out who we are. But the trick is not to lose that when getting back into…

Chicken, Chard and Chickpea Curry

While this recipe didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, it’s still very tasty and easy to make. My friend came over for dinner and I thought this would be a lovely, warming dish to enjoy on a Saturday night in. I made the recipe as per the Pinterest post I found – however…

Thai Quinoa Salad – Meal planning for the win!

Since I recently went on a Facebook break I have spent more time on Pinterest scoping out recipes and workouts, among other things. I have started to try and be better at only buying a limited amount of food to really avoid throwing stuff out. Isn’t that the worst? The leftovers from my Thai Turkey…

Clean Eating 2015

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! As some of you know I spent several weeks in Kelowna visiting family and I just got back to town a few days ago. It was amazing to have the time to recharge and the time with my nephews and my niece was unreal. While I was away I spent…

Best Kale Salad…I’ve ever made

Something about fresh, homegrown vegetables that I absolutely love. Not only does it take me back to my child hood but it reminds me why I want to be in the country to raise my own family. My darling friend Maz stocked me up! I not only devoured all her homegrown cherry tomatoes, but she…

Sunday Healthy Turkey Chilli with Gluten Free Cornbread

This weekend we had a lazy and wonderful weekend. Valentines day which we don’t typically celebrate – Ian made homemade beef burgers fully loaded with a bit of cheese and even bacon. You may not know this but I don’t LOVE bacon. I LOVE a good BLT and I do like bacon on my burgers,…

What you eat = how you feel

I realized yesterday that it has been weeks since my last post. I realized this because I was overwhelmed, tired, sensitive and stressed out. I pay attention to my body and listen to how it feels. I was overwhelmed, tired, sensitive and stressed out so I listened to that and decided to make a change…

Halibut Ceviche – try it then tell me it’s amazing!

Everyone balks when I describe how ceviche is made. It’s fish that’s cooked by being marinated in citrus. What could possibly better? I made this a few years ago and it’s been a hit ever since. Simple, somewhat time consuming, gluten free, Paleo, alkaline AMAZING!!! Halibut Ceviche (Serves 5-6 for dinner) 9 lemons (if you…
