GHEE! All You Need To Know (and How To Make Your Own!)

If you spend any time on healthy living blogs, or follow any health/foodie-focused instagram accounts, you have most likely seen the word “ghee,” floating about.  You may have even seen it written here, in my own little space, rather frequently. At the risk of just hopping on yet another health fad, ghee is something that I now use in my daily diet. I’m fascinated with ancient and ayurvedic medicine and so have loved…

What I Ate Wednesday: Day Off for Cleaning Out The Fridge

Popping in here for a real old-school What I Ate Wednesday (er, Monday) link up with Laura.  Kind of a weeeeeeird day of eats I had on Monday. A lot of cleaning up leftovers, weird cravings and odd combinations. But hey, food is food and what your tummy – and fridge contents – call for, your fridge and tummy calls for. It was a day off for me so I got to let those weird cravings run…

“Nourished” (What I Ate Wednesday)

  “Nourished”   1. to sustain with nutriment; supply with what is necessary for life, health, and growth.   2. to cherish, foster, keep alive   3. to strengthen, build up, or promote   Source   Hmmm. Cherish… foster… promote….   Over the past year, the meaning of the word “nourished” has been changing for me. It’s taken on a new sensory image.. …a new feeling, when…

Snippets From My Week

After Dan and I treated ourselves to a Thanksgiving Dinner of vegan rueben sandwiches and onion rings (hey last year it was a bottle of wine and take out pizza on a beach… you do know we are classy, don’t you?) I saw these vegan bagels at Bloomers and couldn’t not pick one up. I mean, that is the softest, doughiest bagel I have ever seen. Look at that sucker! I bought whipped cream…

Recent Kitchen Creations: Pumpkin, Pancakes, Donuts and Salads

Hello, foodies! As busy as I’ve been, I’ve found it very hard to fit in time to bake and cook as much as I’d like. I really miss it!! I am itching with anticipation for the day I have my new place, have gone down in shifts, and have more time to actually come home and cook a cool meal for Dan and I.  That being said, even when I have no time…

My Comments on Intuitive Eating with IBS: It’s Okay To Use Your Brain

On Tuesday I shared a guest post about Intuitive Eating with IBS.  What a friggen HARD thing to figure out.  And that’s just the two contenders. When you throw in a history of an eating disorder and therefore a still learning/shifting/growing mindset about food intake,  you’ve got one seriously messy pool to wade through.    I thought Joyce’s’ post was spot on. A few things she…

Going On The Low-FODMAP Diet? (Thinking Out Loud)

I mentioned in a recent post that I’ve been experiencing some very discouraging stomach discomfort as of late. Well, really, I’ve been experiencing strange stomach discomfort for I’d say three years now, but because my discomfort has never been what I considered “IBS” – I struggle with more “tightness” rather than bowel distress – I never thought my problems had anything to do with digestion. Or food at…

A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

Feelings and Food: My Struggles With Intuitive Eating

Goodmorning friends,  I’m currently sitting at a McDonalds having an early morning breakfast and (decaf) coffee. I have an appointment with a dietician across the street, so I’m just having some sit down time before going in.  This dietician. I saw her for the first time about a month ago.  It wasn’t really something out of my choosing, but rather a request from the nurse I’ve been seeing.&nbsp…

Recent Eats. And uh, Lots of Cake…

  Let’s clear the pictures off my phone, ya? I mean uh, let’s celebrate food and get some meal inspiration. Happy Wednesday you foodies.  Breakfasts. Going savory, apparently… A mix of quinoa, shredded kale, parsley, cucumber and grape tomatoes in a creamy miso/maple dressing topped with a fried runny egg.   #yolkporn Three words: Big. Cheese. Scone   Recycled pic but finished off that farmers market peameal bacon   &nbsp…
