Creating a Life You Don’t Want to Run Away From

Many people spend their lives running.  And no, not the marathon kind. We spend so much time and energy running away from who we really are, what we really feel and what we really want to do. We distract ourselves with our iPhones the instant we have a moment of open space. We keep ourselves busy busy busy in order to avoid too much quiet time where our thoughts can get the better of us…

Foodie Summer Bucketlist (WIAW)

I’m taking a lesson from my girl Sarah today (the bucketlist headmaster).  It’s time to get out the foodie summer bucketlist.  I decided to compile a list of (some of) the meals, foods, ingredients etc. that I’d like to get around to trying/making this summer. APART from the usual and inevitable cookies, muffins, bars and salads that will no doubt happen. I’ve basically got…

Date Orange Wheat Berry Salad

This unique and hearty Date Orange Wheat Berry Salad is packed full of tastes and textures. Wheat berries provide the ultimate chew, while the feta, dates and a hint of orange provide a melody of flavors that complement each other perfectly. It’s chewy, crunchy, sweet and citrusy all in one beautiful bowl.  I’m taking a breather from my apparent desire to share only baking recipes to bring you something a little…

Week In Review: So This is Self Care

Hello my friends, I hope you all had a lovely week last week.  As I look back on mine, I do see that it was lovely. Very lovely. That being said, as lovely as it may have been “on paper,”  it didn’t always feel as such. I had a few uncomfortable humps that I had to climb over. But I did climb them and sort of landed on the other side…

What I Ate Wednesday: Giving, Not Taking

Hey friends. I was actually totally NOT feeling up to writing a post tonight. But I still wanted to chime in quickly for the weekly WIAW party. Then of course I started writing and, what do you know, epic novel time.  I’m having a good week. Good in the sense that I’m really starting to feel settled at home. I absolutely love my job. Despite some discomfort with eating times, not really getting a proper…

Chickpea Blueberry Muffins (Gluten and Grain Free and made with beans!)

Gluten and grain free. Made with real chickpeas and quinoa flour. These muffins are naturally sweet and have a surprisingly light, velvety texture…

Week In Review: The Week of Appointments and Shopping

Goodmorning again, and happy Monday! Coming at you again from my cozy little writing corner.  Ahh the weekend… Apparently last week was “get everything done!” week. Not only was it productive but it was such a “me” week. I feel like I finally really got this summer of mine going  ->  got almost all of my remaining necessities I want to have at home for the summer, baked up a storm…

Friday Top 3 (#2)

Kate is working away at getting her site self hosted so she can make this lovely “Top Friday,” of hers a link up. Sending her all the good luck vibes and hoping the transition is going smoothly! Whether or not there is a link up, I was really looking forward to joining in the Top 3 fun again this week. I’m also linking up with the lovely Heather.  Top 3 Eats: This Cherry/Shortbread Bar…

The Fear of Making a Mistake

I am constantly learning. Learning and re-learning. Sometimes when I’ve learned something new, I think I have just had the most profound, life changing revaluation. But then, only a mere few days later, I find this new revelation has lost all its sparkle and no longer feels like truth at all. Major womp.  Same goes for my needs. At one moment I can think I need a certain something from someone, to only find a…

WIAW: Starting Up with Small Goals

Hiiiiiiii.  As I talked about on Monday, this past week has been all about transition and getting my feet under me in my new surroundings. On Monday I had my first meeting with my new Nutrionist. It was wonderful. Both the new counsellor and nutrionist I will be working with this summer are marvelous. I do not intend to make my What I Ate Wednesday posts a weekly documentary of my meal plan changes or…
