Fresh, flavourful salads for spring

Getting Home and Giving it All Away

I’m home! Today was my first full day back in Toronto with the grey skies and the wind gusts. I hope this is our way of welcoming the approach of Spring. Yesterday I stopped in Brampton to visit my brother and his family. The kids happily accepted my race medal. I know they will have […]

A Postcard Post Full of Produce

3 days: Shock and Awe

No, I’m not referring to a military strategy, rather to the extreme emotions I have experienced since arriving in Florida.

5 days: Technique Tuesday: Walking and Talking Galloway

On Sunday this kale’s raw, bitter nature was conquered. Today, I’m going to attempt to share some more tips for conquering the challenge of running long distances, injury-free and full of life (without the help of a dehydrator). Have you ever considered whether or not walking during a run could actually improve your race time? […]
