Oh hey, we got a makeover! I’m totally pumped that the next evolution of Eat Spin Run Repeat is finally ready for the world to see, and I hope you guys are enjoying the new look too. My biggest goal was to simplify the design, make navigating around the site easier, and get rid of some [...]

Miso Glazed Salmon with Sesame Slaw

Here's a question for all my fellow seafood lovers out there: Have you ever noticed that when you cook salmon, there's often white stuff oozing out of the sides? It's not pretty, that's for sure - especially when it comes to trying to take good photos for blogging purposes. This culinary conundrum is one that [...]

Coconut Red Curry Salmon Towers

It's about to get all fancy shmancy up in heeerrrrrrrre. From time to time, I'll crawl Pinterest and discover recipes that look like they've taken hours to put together. While impressive and mouthwatering, the realist in me knows that there's no way I'd last trying to replicate these - especially if I was hungry while doing so. However, [...]

Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Protein Squares

I'll preface this post by saying that it is very, very long overdue. It's always a surprise to see what recipes end up being most popular on the blog, and to look at the terms people have searched to land here. These typically involve the words 'eat spin run repeat' in varying combinations, or questions about running, [...]

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie (+ 4 bonus recipes!)

When I was doing by business undergrad, one of my favourite electives was psychology. The areas I loved most were sports psychology and consumer behaviour, and considering I'm now a marketer in my full-time job who loves all things sweaty, that probably comes as no surprise. I took those classes in 2nd and 3rd year, but looking [...]

Oh She Glows Every Day Cookbook Review, Q+A and Giveaway

When you were a kid, did you keep a journal or diary? If so, have you ever gone back as an adult to read what you wrote? Did it make you laugh, perhaps cringe, or shake your head at how things that now seems so minor were SUCH a big deal to you back in [...]

Crispy Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Kale Bowls with Garlic Tahini Sauce

I had almost just as much fun acquiring the ingredients for this week's recipe as I did actually eating it. Let me explain. Recently I was catching up on an episode of The Good Life Project, a show that has been on my list of weekend must-listen podcasts for years now. The guest was the woman who [...]

Vegan Banana Ice Cream, 4 Ways

One of my favourite memories from summers of years past was going to visit my cousins at their house in Ontario. At the time, my family lived in my hometown of Edmonton, and making the trip was something I'd look forward to for months. We spent our days doing all the things that make summer holidays [...]

Baby Heirloom Tomato, Cucumber and Quinoa Salad

Yesterday morning I set out on what should have been a lovely sunrise run along the sea wall. The beach was on my left side, the park was on my right, and a few fellow early morning enthusiasts shared the path with me. About 15 minutes in, I was just getting into my meditative running groove when [...]

Thai Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl

This one's going down as approximately the 11th recipe on the blog that involves nut butter in the form of a sauce or dressing, and at the risk of being repetitive, I still figured you NEEDED to have this recipe in your life because it's pretty much one of the greatest things that's ever happened to tofu.

Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Cranberry Almond Granola Bars

Remember a week or so ago when I said I had a major recipe fail? Ideas for how to fix that fail have been swirling through my head ever since. After a week of contemplation I went for a second attempt, and am proud to announce it was a HUGE win! Every once in a [...]

Summer Bliss Salad

Lately it seems that a large influx of travel-related promo emails have been landing in my inbox. I don't open many, but skimming the subject lines has been triggering thoughts about epic vacations, exotic beaches and luxurious resorts. Add to this the fact that Wanderlust Whistler happened this weekend, plus the stream of Facebook photos that give me a glimpse into all of the [...]

Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls

Today's recipe isn't one I originally intended to post. Over the weekend I was working on a reader's request for a sweet yet healthy snack, and everything was going perfectly until I took said snack out of the oven. It had been a while since my last big recipe fail, and I guess it was just [...]

Smoked Salmon and Avocado Summer Rolls

Guess who's mouth wants to eat nothing but salmon this week? This girl's. But first, a story. Back when I started my new (or not so new any more) job in April, I was at the beach with a couple of my co-workers and we were discussing our favourite food treats. Their answers included some [...]
