Healthy and Delicious in San Diego

Food is important. Good food is even more important – that’s how I see it! Thankfully, there are more and more places popping up that help ease the search for good, nourishing food. A place I came across on a recent trip to sunny San Diego was Cafe Gratitude. I only wish I was there…

Vegas Baby

I find Vegas to be one of those chameleon places –  it’s never the same; it becomes whatever you want it to be in each visit. Having been there a few times already, and it not being my all time favourite place, I wanted to experience a different kind of Vegas. Something less touristy, finding pleasure in the…

Product Review: Halfmoon Mighty Yoga Mat

You know that moment when you made the decision to pick up a yoga practice? You’ve heard all the benefits it can have on your body (and mind) and have decided it’s time to welcome it into your life. So you go out, buy a mat, some yoga clothes and, because you want to “feel” like…

Recap of Wanderlust Whistler 2016

This year was the first year I finally attended Wanderlust – a 5 day gathering up in Whistler where the whole purpose is yoga and connection. I have wanted to attend this festival for a few years now but it wasn’t until this year that I felt the NEED to go. It’s that kind of…

Battle Rides at RYU and Spin City

Ever been to a spinning class? How about a spinning class with a live DJ?? AND two trainers? That was the experience at the latest Battle Rides held at RYU in Kits! Now, I’m not much of a cyclist so agreeing to doing this was a little out of the ordinary for me BUT I…

Yoga from the Rastafari Perspective Event

Reggae and yoga? Sign me up! On July 26th, a new movement will be arriving in Vancouver: Yoga from the African/Rastafari perspective. Jah9 will be leading this practice of Kemetic Yoga with The Dub Treatment playing live. If you’re not familiar with what Kemetic Yoga is, let me explain: It’s an ancient Egyptian system of…

Organic and Local in North Van: Bluhouse Market & Cafe

There’s something to be said about being a tourist in your own city. Experiencing and looking at things from a completely different perspective and noticing places you’ve never seen before. That was the case with Bluhouse Market & Cafe! It’s one of those enchanting places that, when you visit, you feel positive the moment you walk in. The vibe…

Ah, beautiful British Columbia. The place we all call home! It’s here that a yoga retreat with local delicious food is to take place in April! You know the high you get after a strong workout at the gym or a long run around the seawall? That’s what this retreat is about. You can register online. It’s…

New Additions to Happy Planet

In my last post, I touched on Happy Planet’s new products and flavours at the Gluten-Free Expo. In this post, I’m going a little deeper – having had the opportunity of tasting most of them now! And at different moments throughout the week which helped me test out how convenient they really can be. Fresh…

Happy Planet Foods at the Gluten-Free Expo

The Gluten-Free Expo is happening right now at Canada Place. It happens every year and, seriously, this year it was filled with new brands and the popular oldies. Happy Planet falling in BOTH those categories! You may know Happy Planet for their ready-to-go smoothies and soups found at most grocery stores. You know, the ones…

Chia Blueberry Overnight Oats #Recipe

Chia seeds are pretty great. They’re a great source of omega-3, calcium, even protein. And they’re prefect for making a jello-like consistency in a recipe that calls for gelatin – which is derived from boiling skin, cartilage, and bones of animals. This is a great alternative for vegetarians! But that’s not entirely what I want…

Boosting Smoothie Bowl with Gojoy Berries Recipe

Smoothies are a wonderful thing. They can be a meal on-the-go or a mid-afternoon energy boost. It all depends on what you add in your blender. I tend to go for the exact same mix every morning: a banana, nut mylk, some sort of leafy green, chia seeds (or a form of omega-3’s), natural peanut…
