Hello everyone! Wow, it’s been so long since we all chatted! Life once again got in the way of blogging, I’ve just been so busy and living life became the priority. Well that and school and work ;) But I’m here today, with a little bit of a random post to show you all what I’ve been up to and what you can expect to see coming up on the blog!
Just a little update on my life- the 2 courses I’ve been taking for the last month are winding down and exams are coming up in the next 2 days. It’s a super fast-paced environment here- I can’t believe they’re already done and that I start 2 new ones following Thanksgiving. Going home for the weekend will be such a nice change from the busy life I’ve been leading here! I’m even planning a pretty delicious pumpkin dessert that you’ll definitely hear about should all go well!
Now, a What I Ate Wednesday- what I’ve been eating in Toronto!
P.S. Thanks Jenn for hosting :)
First up, 2 food swaps!
The lovely Alexia and I decided to exchange foodie finds all the way between Austria and Canada and she sent just the most amazing things! Pumpkin seed oil and pomegranate vinegar were serious highlights as were the probiotic coconut chocolate bar, the curry powder and her homemade pumpkin seed bites. Thanks Alexia! :)
Next up, a little birthday exchange between myself and Sarah! With birthdays less than a week apart, we decided it would be really fun to send each other some birthday presents! Everything was/is amazing including the Go Raw flax crackers, chocolate covered cacao nibs, banana chips, and the green tea! Even an owl mug- 2 of my favourite things in one! Thank you, thank you!
Now some recipe teasers!
Maple Miso Tahini Spread- this stuff is amazing guys!
Raw Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!!!
A simple and delicious coconut curry served over Thai Purple Rice
And finally, a few more foodie finds!
This was my first time trying Bio-K+. This particular one is their fermented rice drink- it’s a great way to get in some probiotics and I found I really liked the tangy taste! Reminded me of a yogurt drink. It’s so important to promote good, healthful bacteria growth in your gut, particularly if you’ve ever taken antibiotics so check this out if you see it!
Vegan Nanaimo bar, specialty hot chocolate and board games? I love you Snakes and Lattes!
Delicious organic juices from Belmonte Raw. Expect a more detailed post on this to come!
Hope you all enjoyed this little update :) Have a wonderful rest of your week and I swear I’ll be back with a recipe soon!
