Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks with Mango Chutney

Back in the day when my family lived in Edmonton, my dad would often travel for business. My mum has never loved cooking and my dad was always the more keen chef, so when he was away, we knew it was more likely that we might get to go to a fast food restaurant for [...]

Natural Beauty Holiday Gift Guide

I had a not-so pleasant experience earlier this year. I'm going to tell you about it because perhaps those of you who are also in your late 20's (or have been there) will know exactly what I'm talking about. I woke up, rolled out of bed, threw on my workout gear and went to the [...]

Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

After having realized how easy it was to make these Pumpkin Pie Spice Almond Butter Cups a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't resist going for round 2, only this time, testing a more traditional peanut butter cup. You know how some foods are just really reminiscent of your childhood? Reese's peanut butter cups were one [...]

Crispy Harissa Chickpea Power Bowls

This summer I went to Boston for a work conference, and as is always the case when I travel to the US, I made a point of taking a trip to Whole Foods. There were two reasons for this. The first was to stock my hotel mini fridge with some healthy eats for the couple [...]

Gift Guide for the Superfoodie’s Holistic Healing Kitchen

This post is sponsored by iHerb. Question: When it comes to holiday shopping, do you love it or hate it? Personally, I love the process of planning, curating and wrapping gifts for people in my life – especially when the latter is done with a hot beverage nearby and a solid Christmas playlist. I’ve never been [...]

Skin-Nourishing Collagen Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yep, still eating pumpkin things over here. Back when I was in university, I had a Starbucks credit card. I chose it because it allowed me to collect Starbucks credit every time I purchased anything - groceries, clothes, etc. I used this card all the time, and as a result, don't think I ever had [...]

Roasted Root Vegetable + Quinoa Bowls with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Get ready for a cozy bowl of warm, roasted-to-perfection goodness. Call me crazy, but roasted vegetables are my comfort food. Roasted Brussels sprouts, pumpkin, squash, cauliflower, beets - any and all of them - I don't discriminate. I'll spend a long day at work, walk out to my car sometime after 5 (probably in the [...]

October Goal Check-In and 3 for November 2017

Well... it's that goal check-in time yet again! Two more months left in 2017 and a few more mini goals were conquered in October. I've said this before, but having a blog and this regular series one of the biggest things that keeps me accountable to everything I set out to do at the beginning [...]

6-Ingredient Matcha Mint Dark Chocolate Cups

Halloween is on Tuesday, so let's celebrate with a chocolatey treat, shall we? I've been testing a LOT of nut-free sweet treats lately - some successful, and some very much not! The reason behind it all is that one of my lunch customers at work has a severe nut allergy, and she can't eat sunflower [...]

Chickpea-Free Hummus, 3 Ways

If your Instagram feed is full of foodies, you've probably noticed that crudite platters, cheese plates and other intricate displays of gorgeous bite-sized morsels are having a big moment. Veggies, hummus, crispbreads, nuts, seeds, fruit, avocado roses - I'm totally into all of it, and obviously it was only a matter of time before I [...]

Reader Q+A: Best Exercises for Flat Abs

It's time for another reader Q+A, and this month it's my take on a question I get a lot: "What are the best exercises for flat abs?" Let me start this one by saying that there haven't been many Fitness Friday workouts here lately due to the commitment I made to myself earlier this summer. [...]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix Bars

You guys aren't tired of pumpkin yet, right? Good. Because I can't finish off the month of October without sharing these no-bake Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix Bars. That's right - no bake, minimal effort, stir-it-all-together-in-a-bowl-and-smush-it-in-a-dish-to-chill minimal effort. Which pretty much means they're a must-make, right? When it comes to bars, I like mine to [...]

Thai Sweet Chilli Chicken Noodle Bowls

I hope you've been practicing your Lady and the Tramp noodle slurping skills. I'm not talking veggie noodles this time either - even though you guys know I love me some zoodles. I'm talking saucy, sweet chilli-coated, don't-let-me-hit-the-bottom-of-the-bowl soba noodles that are kinda like takeout but a bazillion times better. Catch my drift? In my [...]

3 water infusions to make staying hydrated more delicious

This post is sponsored by Dopper. Let’s talk hydration. Specifically, staying hydrated when it’s cold outside and the last thing you feel like doing is drinking water – or at least that’s how I feel when I’m cold. As someone who loves high sweat activities, hydration during training and races is a topic that’s often [...]
