Green and Red-Back on Track?

As you know I’ve been feeling very under the weather for the past week or so.  My body decided that it didn’t care what I wanted, it wanted what it desired.  By this week’s aches and pains I’m still not entirely sure what that was, but I’ve decided to give it some peace and not…

Thrilling Thursdays and Chicken Broth

So yesterday was going to be a lovely post on the fantastic things that I ate all day, but since I was still feeling very sick my food for the day wasn’t really all that exciting.

Tuesday Treats-and a comforting soup

So after reading this lady’s AMAZING blog most of Tuesday I decided that I HAD (yes HAD) to go to the grocery store to grab some dark chocolate.  Interesting how viewing post after post of dark  chocolate will do that to you. While our grocery store may not be the “best” place to find organic…

My Squashy Obession

When the first leaves of fall begin their slow decent you can find me at a farm stand or local grocery store wistfully eyeing my favorite produce of the autumn season, squash.   Truth be told, I have an obsession; I become that crazed mad scientist when I get my hands on one, or two or…

My BFF Juicer Met Beecartox-Love at first speed

Juice, juice oh how I love to juice. And I mean REAL juice, not that concentrated syrupy mess they disguise as juice in the grocery store. Dismiss its brightly colored cheerful cardboard box, and turn that bad boy over. Just on a rough scan of the ingredients most items will say, made from concentrate and…

Noteworthy, recipe saving chicken stew…chickens beware

My eyes closed and my body sighed in satisfaction upon the first spoonful. How could something so easy become so wonderfully divine? Cal stated in satisfaction as he finished his bowl that…

Winner winner chicken stew dinner?

Now, who doesn’t like chicken out there….(vegetarians don’t answer that question, I will have plenty of veggie only dishes up at some point). There are a lot of people out there walking around with a huge misconception that chicken is boring. (Cue TV commercial: “Aww man, chicken….again?”)  What they don’t realize is chicken is a very versatile…

And off we go!

So  rumour has it, I must really enjoy moving because I’m moving again in such a short time.  When I moved in with Cal we decided we really needed a bigger place and a location that would be more centralized for our commute. We submitted our application to a lovely renovated mill farther west and…

Yoga, release your inner goddess…not duck

When I first heard of people doing yoga I wasn’t at all sure what it was or if I would like it. (A downward what????) I’d buy books, dvds and even viewed specialized programs. However, it was always just a temporary phase I’d go through and sooner than later I’d forget it even existed. In the…
