I love vegan food because it’s so versatile, healthy, makes you feel good, and aesthetically pleasing. I partnered up with Old El Paso to try my hand at making some vegan taco fillings because you can never have enough taco recipes! I’m actually so excited for this collaboration because I’ve always ran to Old El Paso for taco night supplies, haha. So, after many trial and errors, I have 3 recipes to share made out of: lentils, rice, and cauliflower. If you want a video, I’ll have it linked at the bottom of this post.
I’m sure you’ve heard about bloggers and Youtubers raving about Acai bowls. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time, but I’ve been holding back because I figured it was generally the same as what I make myself for breakfast sometimes. But since it’s close to where I live, it seemed appropriate to try it out and see if it actually tastes good or if people are just saying it’s “good” because it’s a superfood. I got to find out the truth behind Acai bowls.
I was in quite the dire situation with little to no food in the fridge and pantry. I wasn’t going to be grocery shopping anytime soon, so I needed quick meal I could make out of what I had on hand. And of course, the one thing that you can depend on is rice balls or onigiri. Onigiri are rice balls formed into either spherical or triangular shapes and wrapped with nori. I obviously didn’t have the traditional ingredients like sticky rice or nori, so I altered the recipes quite a bit. After making onigiri, I have come to learn that it […]
I checked out Colette Grand Cafe in Toronto to see if it matches up with the reputation it has on Instagram. Is it as good as it seems online on Instagram? On Instagram, when you look up Colette, you see beautiful, bright, delicious foods with instagram-worthy backdrops and floor-drops for photos. Many bloggers and Instagramers visit the cafe to get professional looking photos without trying too hard. My friend Linda had her birthday shoot here, so it was a great chance for Esther, Linda, and I to check out how the place really looked and how the food tasted.
Mornings can be a pain in the butt. Nobody wants to wake up super early to head into work. Everybody wants to relax and be on a permanent vacation. In my case, I live in Canada, so it’s freezing cold and dark in the winter mornings. Way to motivate you to get out of bed, huh? The moment I peak out a corner of my blanket, I shiver. It’s never fun. I’ve been living in these colds winters for a while, so I have some winter essentials that may help you all out as well.
I’ve always wanted to try afternoon or high tea. It always looked so classy, posh, and delicious. Any time I see desserts beautifully plated, it wins me over and I want it. Now, afternoon tea tends to be very pricy. It’s usually minimum $30 per person. Some prices even go up to a whopping $70 each. I’m sure the high end tea places have much more luxury desserts and teas, but it’s totally out of my budget. Luckily, I found a Groupon for afternoon tea for two at Ruelo. How much was it? Only $30 for TWO! What a deal! […]
Popcorn is one of my favourite snacks. I love it because it is crispy, low in calories, and tastes good by itself or mixed in with toppings. I originally shared with you one recipe in my healthy late night snacks video a while back. It wasn’t exactly a ‘recipe’, but more like just slathering Sriracha on top (which by the way tastes amazing). Since then, I’ve been experimenting with what I’ve got in my kitchen to see if I can more different flavours I can share with my friends since not all my friends can eat spicy. Any excuse I have […]
Sweet Note is a dessert cafe located in Markham. I’m quite fond of sweets and tea, so I figured Sweet Note would be a great place to visit. Plus, the sign is pretty cute, so the food has to be good, RIGHT? RIGHT?!
I’ve been eating healthy for a while, so I’ve had my fair share of salad dressing experience. I still do enjoy a salad, but I prefer many other things than that. Although, I do have to mention, salads at restaurants taste bomb. I’m assuming it’s because they have far more variety in ingredients than what I have in my fridge (I’m a lazy girl and I don’t like going grocery shopping for multiple items, what can I say?) . Now because I don’t have many ingredients in my fridge, I understand if you don’t either. To help you lazy buddies out, I’ve got 4 healthy & […]
Now before I start this post, I want to say that I’ve never been to Winterlicious or fine dining before, so this was my first experience. I’ve always wanted to go to both because Winterlicious is a great time to try new, expensive restaurants for a discounted price. And I always thought the serving sizes of regular family restaurants can be quite big, so this was a fun change of pace.
Hey everyone! For those of you who don’t live in Canada, we actually celebrate Thanksgiving on October 13th. My family typically doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, so it was really exciting to be able to celebrate with my friends for the first time. Let’s start off with the day before. We spent do much time looking up recipes and DIYs to make my plain, very empty room as festive and cozy as possible. To do that, we did some DIY center pieces. Like the whole day, I just helped pick out pieces and watched my friends put it all together beautifully. If […]
So, you’ve all seen my first impression review on the Vemma Renew drinks. It was for the purpose of trying to help my acne because I’ve heard stories of how people’s skin have improved a lot after taking this supplement. It’s taken me a while to write this because I wanted to try this product for 2 months instead of 1, and I wanted to see if it would make a different after some time of not drinking the supplements. It wouldn’t be a proper Vemma review if I didn’t take the time to fully test it.
Now, I go through a lot of phases when it comes to healthy eating. And when I say that, I mean I have a very select few dishes I always make when I want something to eat that’s full of flavour and “special” because it’s not just quinoa and whatever dish is on the dinner table. Making healthy meals and trying new recipes is so recreational and therapeutic to me. it’s also very adventurous because you don’t know how it’s going to taste or turn out.
Halloween is all about sweets, candy, chips, and everything that would upset our bodies and rot our teeth. For the children, and for us, it can’t be good at all. I’m trying to eat healthier, so all that it a no-no. Instead, I decided to play in the kitchen to find out what I can make that’s sweet, healthy, and still taste pretty damn amazing. Each of these recipes are slightly similar to one another, making it easy to make all of them. I hope you enjoy them!
This is my absolute favourite and tastiest of my healthy Halloween treats series. I have a sweet tooth for dark chocolate, and this is the best to satiate my cravings! It also reminds me of Reese cups. I mean- if it’s dark chocolate, it has to be kind of healthy, right? haha.
