Say it ain’t so…

Today I discovered that my favourite dish on the FRESH menu will not appear on the new menu being launched tomorrow!  Thank goodness I got to stuff my face with deliciousness one last time. The Jerusalem Bowl is a tasty combo of  flax hummus, grilled spinach, tomato, cucumber, parsley, red onion, sunflower sprouts, olive oil, tamari, mixed herbs, lemon & chili powder on a bed of basmati rice. I’m sure I’ll find something equally as good on the new menu but change is hard…

BTW: If you have never eaten a meal at FRESH-get off your ass and do it. I have never been disappointed-other fav’s include the quinoa puffed onion rings, the black bean burrito and the energy bowl. I am also addicted to the liver flush elixir and the miso gravy!

Food Photo of The Day

It’s been way too long since I have had the time to blog and so starting today I VOW to post some really kick ass blog entries to make up for it. (later on this week!)

In the meantime enjoy a shot of the delicious main event for The Father’s Day Dinner I Hosted on Sunday. Amazing!

Food Photo of the Day!

Howdy Gang! Today I decided to update Foodventures’ look! Let me know what you think. I’m digging the new layout.

ALSO: check out this billboard I spotted a couple of days ago walking the streets of Toronto…Can anyone explain this to me? Has anyone else seen this fast food art?

Billboard hiding at a dog park near you!

I’m a turkey! (This is a stuffed Turkey, I made a while back!)

Apologies for not posting in a while. I have just been so busy with work! But I promise to post delicious eats very soon.

Steal This Idea…

I am currently working (hanging) with a group of kick ass folks in Banff, Alberta…

Up Tunnel Moutnain there is this incredible place called The Banff Centre, a truly special place where people from all over the world come to work, create, play, inspire, write, paint, challenge, discuss, confer, explore…needless to say it is a safe place to get down with your bad self.

The Banff Centre, being as innovative as it is, offers Fettucinni Sticks in the cafes for the milk and sugar that you want to stir into your coffee. Such a neat and cool idea to save you from using wooden sticks and wasting precious trees. Seriously steal this idea…



The Challenge aka Stupid Ideas

Steaks and Beers!

For the next 10 days I will not:

  1. Eat Meat
  2. Eat Dairy
  3. Eat Wheat
  4. Eat Sugar
  5. Drink Booze (vodka counts)
  6. Drink Caffeine
  7. Smoke Cigarettes ( which i only do sometimes (but that sometimes is increasing) when i drink booze)
  8. and I promise to go to the gym everyday
  9. and to do yoga at least 5 days out of the 10
  10. and it looks like i will avoid my friends (kidding!)

For those of you who know me, you know this is going to be tough. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the things that I am banning over the next 10 days. For those of you who don’t know me 10 days doesn’t seem very long does it?

So far today: 1  hour at the Gym and 1 hour of yoga, none of the illegal foods/drinks in my body.

I’m excited to see if I feel any different on the other end. Wish me Luck or join me in doing your own Challenge/Cleanse/Stupid Idea!



In my kitchen right now…

I am boiling delicious beets. Yum! Thanks to the fab Erin for delivering all sorts of goodies from her garden!

A very chilly but happy saturday happening here!
