Road Trip Adventures: Toronto to Tofino

August 4, 2017

This year marks Canada’s 150th birthday, so what better way to celebrate the milestone than with a good old road trip across the country? I have lived just outside of Toronto my whole life.

Sometimes we are so preoccupied with wanting to see the world, that we…

July 7, 2017

Summer is here and that means that it’s time to start thinking about planning a camping trip (or trips, if you are lucky!). I love camping. There is nothing quite like the feeling of immersing yourself in the woods. Last summer, we made a few trips to the backcountry of Algonquin Park. For three days we canoed, hiked, swam, sat around the campfire and slept under the stars. No computers, televisions or cell phones. There was nothing that we had…

Healthy Banana Muffins (Gluten Free, Vegan)

May 12, 2017

It’s Sunday morning and today I want to talk banana muffins. Yes you read that right – banana muffins! Because who doesn’t love them? Growing up, this was a treat that my mom always made for me and my brother and sisters. There are four of us, so needless to say, when she made baked goods, they didn’t stick around long (compliments to the chef!). I used to love watching her bake. I remember hanging around the kitchen to watch the muffins rise as…

I love the smell, the taste, the freshness and most of all, the way that it makes me feel. I get such an energy boost from having a nice,…
