In Defence of Soy: Pesto Tofu Scramble

Speaking of which, I haven’t always been a fan of a soy. There was definitely a time where all the news reports and soy gossip freaked me out. It seems like a study on the healthful and or harmful effects of soy has been published every other day since I was born. According to CNN, the soy debate has been going on since the 1940’s!

Chickpea Magazine

Anyone who follows a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle should check this out for recipes, travel guides and more. Their content is 100% vegan. Also, if you’re omnivorous chickpea magazine is still pretty cool. I bet you’d like it. 

The Common Guelph

The Common in Guelph

Last month, some friends and I took a trip to Guelph for Kazoo Fest. I had never been to this unassuming riverside town. It definitely wasn’t on my radar and I must admit that my expectations were low. Turns out Guelph possesses its fair share of small town charm. Highlights included lazing by the water, The Cornerstone, live music, a print-makers market and The Common.

Cinnamon Bun at Bunner’s Bakeshop

I’ve spent a lot of time in Kensington Market lately. It’s one of my favourite spots in Toronto. This might have something to do with the high concentration of vegan food options. My last stop was Blackbird Baking Co. More recently, I conquered Bunner’s Bakeshop. I always frequent an establishment at least three times before I feel qualified to write about it. On my last visit, I had a cinnamon bun. I don’t think I’ve had one of these since going on a vegan diet. It was pretty amazing.

Simple Hummus

Spring is upon us! Camping has been the singular topic of conversation around the house. Naturally, I am already planning the meals for the trips I haven’t even booked. Hummus, of course, is on the menu.

Squash Noodle Bowl for the Starving Artist

Welcome to March. That point in the winter when you wonder why you have chosen to relocate to a frozen tundra when you lived in Sydney, Australia not six months ago. While it is true that I miss the fine weather and the white-sand beaches I could never sacrifice the community I current have here in Toronto for a sun-tan.
