Toronto Has The Best Restaurants For Cheating

…it’s not what you think, I swear. This beeyotch is loyal to the bone. 😉 Anywho, enough of me being inappropriately sassy. I have less than a week left in my off-season…craaaazy right!? I’ve been trying to cross off all the foods I drool over while I’m in competition prep so I’ve been busy hustling all…

No Wolverines in Sight: Origin Toronto

What’s cookin’ good-lookin’? Yeah, you. I’m always posting about fitness and my competition journey and experiences but I went to a really cool restaurant yesterday for the first time in forever: Origin Toronto. For the record – not to totally copycat Casey’s food blog series – but: I AM NOT A FOODIE.  Man, hit me…

What’s a Hush Puppy? Electric Mud BBQ

The first thing I thought of when I walked into this culinary establishment: (Sidenote: If you haven’t seen Beasts of the Southern Wild, I highly recommend it.) Scene: Warm, sunny evening. Side street. Discarded couches on the curb. Feeling hip. Cool exterior with benches outside. Bum fight going on about beer at the neighbouring LCBO. Enter the…

Oh Margarita God: Playa Cabana Cantina

OMG (Oh Margarita God) was what I was exclaiming last night in the best Mexican place in The Junction (in my humble opinion, of course.) Playa Cabana Cantina is the “spin-off” of Playa Cabana on Dupont and it is possibly my new favourite place. My co-worker/graphic designer/awesome new babe friend/best wingwoman suggested this place for…

As soon as April 22 hits, you’ll find me spending money I should be saving on food that someone else has prepared with love and passion (instead of the utter disdain I currently share for my egg…

Things I Learned in Chicago

If I eat three spinach sticks, I can only eat one slice of deep dish from Gino’s East Pizza. That’s a fact. Always wear hair in a ponytail or tied back. If not, wear a headband, or hair will become rat’s nest. Chicago is indeed the windy city. I have a serious, serious, serious shopping problem….

Oktoberfest: Embracing My Other Half

Hey hey hey! I can’t believe it’s Thursday…again! Time really flies when you’re in between jobs. (I’m thinking about telling people I’m on a sabbatical, just because it sounds fancy and professional…but I think those are reserved for people in academia. Perhaps I’ll try once and let you all know how it goes.) So tomorrow…
