My mom and I were grocery shopping a few nights ago at Sobeys, and in the produce section, a display titled “plant-based alternatives” caught my eye. I decided to take a stroll over to the display to see what sorts of items were available. A vast majority of the section consisted of dairy-free cheeses, although … More Plant-based diets: logical or ludicrous?
One of the biggest downsides of being intolerant to dairy is not being able to sip on delicious, milky beverages that seem to just hit the spot. Specifically, ones from Starbucks, because they’re bloody delicious. Not to worry, though. It just so happens that after some experimenting and luck, I’ve managed to construct my own … More Here’s how to make a Starbucks-worthy, dairy-free steamer
I’m a big fan of a luxurious body wash, but I’m not exactly willing to spend big bucks to have some myself. So, when I had a shower at home a few weeks ago and joyfully discovered a fancy new addition to my family’s selection of body washes, you best believe I was all over … More Product review: North American Hemp Co. Relax and Soak Moisturizing Body Wash Cream
Scrolling through my Twitter newsfeed the other day, I stumbled across a post from PETA that thoroughly pissed me off (no, I do not follow PETA on Twitter, don’t worry). The post was linked to an article titled “‘Game of Thrones’ Star Jerome Flynn: Reject Cruelty, Go Vegan,” and since I am a huge Game … More Recognizing misleading animal activism (cough, PETA, cough)
Let me begin by stating that this post stems from an article from Medicalxpress and doesn’t encapsulate my own personal views of vegans. From my own perceptions, however, a lot of people have it out for vegans. the article explains how many vegans encounter criticism via social media for their dietary preferences, with some vegans … More Why do we hate vegans?

I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place foundation for years now, and as much as I love it, I was getting a little bored with the forever increasing price tag on it. So, when I went to Shoppers to pick up a few things a couple of weeks ago, I asked the cosmetician … More Product review: Dermablend Flawless Creator Foundation Drops
In yesterday’s post I mentioned that my mom and I visited a bakery when we were in Port Dover on the weekend, and because the desserts I got from said bakery are so darn delicious, I wanted to share it with you. Trish’s Bakery Cafe, located in the heart of downtown Dover, opened in 2009 … More Trish’s Bakery Cafe
It is perhaps somewhat hypocritical of me to compose a blog post discussing the act of meal-prepping considering I have never meal-prepped myself, but after speaking with some people who do and reading up on it, I thought it may be useful for people who do meal-prep to read about some tips and tricks I … More Tips For Meal-Prepping
I wouldn’t blame you if you read the title of this post and ran screaming in the other direction, because I almost did just that when I initially came across this recipe. Chickpeas and cookie dough simply don’t mix, right? Easy peasy. Well, I found myself thinking about this recipe for a few days after … More Chickpea Cookie Dough?
As much as I appreciate a solid chocolate chip cookie, it can be tricky to find one I can eat due to my food allergies. I was religiously purchasing peanut butter chocolate chip cookies from the Paris Gluten-Free Bakery and Marketplace, however, I am now unable to eat these because they contain potato products. Thus, … More Sweets From the Earth Chocolate Chip Cookies
As I promised in my last post discussing Edible Options, a bakery dedicated to individuals who have dietary restriction in St. Catharines, today’s post will offer my own opinion of the desserts I purchased to sample. Maple Chocolate Cupcake: Quite honestly, I was entirely unsure as to how maple and chocolate as a combination would … More Edible Options: My Review
My wonderful friend was kind enough to surprise me recently with a box of different desserts that, to my surprise, were safe for me to eat. She explained to me how she came across a bakery in St. Catharines called Edible Options, and how everything they create is 100% gluten-free, but further can be made … More Edible Options
I am sure you’re all aware by now of my food intolerances, but in case you’ve forgotten (which I doubt you have), I am intolerant to gluten, dairy, and egg. These intolerances can make eating protein quite tricky since many processed meats contain additives and filler, for example, gluten, therefore when I come across something that is … More Oh Naturel!
