    Vegan Twix Cake

    I love my husband, he’s always looking to challenge me and test my skills. Which is exactly why I should have known better than to ask him what kind of cake he would want for his birthday. But I did, and he requested a Twix Cake.  Now if you’ve been following me for a while now, you’d know that we’re vegan. Vegan Twix is unfortunately not a thing, as much as I wish it was. So to create an entire…

    Manifesting Your Dream

    Howdy! Its been a hot minute since I’ve written a blog post. This was something that used to stress me out a bunch but I’ve come to terms with the fact that this is just how I run my blog. Acceptance is critical, especially when it comes to accepting yourself. But yeah, I’ve been busy! My therapist is always telling me I need to be more present and allow joy to come into my life. So while I’ve been super…

    Is North American Mother’s Day Going Out of Style?

    This thought has been on my mind for years. I didn’t feel I had the ‘right’ to voice my opinion since I, myself was not a mother. Yet here I am now, a mother to a beautiful, hilarious, spunky, outgoing little guy. With this day inching closer and closer and I can’t help but notice that this feeling is still there.  Before I became a mama, this day brought on a lot of stress. My relationship with my mother has…

    18 Month Postpartum Update

    Part 1 I’ve wanted to do a postpartum update. It’s been quite some time since I’ve done one. Speaking honestly, I just don’t even know where to begin.  In my first year of postpartum I had been visiting my doctor pretty regularly as I really wasn’t feeling good. I had a long list of different ailments that was making living day to day extremely hard.  When all my tests regularly came back normal I was brushed off. I was told…

    Vegan Homemade Waffles

      Who doesn’t love a good waffle?! If you don’t like waffles, we can’t be friends. Its that simple 😆 Okay, that might be a tad dramatic of me, what can I say, I love the theatrics. But seriously, I do love me some waffles. I am a big breakfast person. I think I’m opposite to most, I’ll never skip breakfast but have no problem skipping out on lunch or dinner. I’ve always been a breakfast gal. From pancakes, crepes, parfaits, lattes, waffles, French…

    Gardening for New Comers

    It’s the beginning of gardening season! I would have never thought I would be one to get excited about gardening season, but alas, here I am! I’m so excited in fact that I’m writing a damn blog post about it! Although, this is something that has been on the to do list for….well, a year! But rather than fretting what I shoulda, coulda, woulda done, lets just be happy we’re here. I’m pretty new at this whole gardening business. Last spring…

    What does it mean to be healthy?

    It’s been hard for me lately.  Life is all about the ebs and flows, the good and bad. One day we feel balanced, whole and confident and the next we’re off kilter, in pieces and hard on ourselves.  And the love journey with my body hasn’t any different. The constant messages we receive is that fatness is bad. We have fatphobia engrained in our culture and it’s runs as deep as it can go.  I’ve been working hard and dismantling…

    4 Documentaries about Your Health

    We are surrounded by information these days, from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TV News, News Apps, Google etc. Then; you have to question if it’s a reliable source, is the study sponsored? I’ve had a number of people reach out to me to discuss either a documentary they’ve seen or to get some recommendations. Knowledge is not only powerful, but also addicting. That’s why I wanted to create posts categorizing and outlining the best vegan documentaries to watch. . How it…

    7 Pantry Items For the Beginner Vegan

    Often the thought of switching vegan/plant-based is paired with the idea that the foods are flavourless and there’s going to be a lot to loose. Being on the other side, I can say with full confidence that I’m enjoying way more flavour in my food now than I ever have before and I’ve only gained more love and knowledge for the foods I eat. But I wanted to help ease the transition for anyone curious in living a more veggie forward…
