A Day in Ottawa Photolog: My Healthy Road Trip Day 49

Back when I interviewed Heather Nicholds of Healthy Eating Starts Here, she gave me some great sight-seeing recommendations for her beloved hometown, Ottawa.

Strolling Quebec City’s Old Town: My Healthy Road Trip Days 47-48

Truthfully, we never made it much outside the historic town wall that surrounds Old Town during our stay in Quebec City. We craved a more relaxed pace after the Montreal hustle. So we spent a couple days exploring without any agenda, not even a single vegan cafe pilgrimage.

Aux Vivres: Love this Vegan Cafe in Montreal!

Aux Vivres: Love this Vegan Cafe in Montreal!

Today I want to share with you my favorite bilingual cafe. Montreal’s first vegan restaurant, Aux Vivres. The translation is “to food”, a promising start.

What I Ate… Finding Balance at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival

I was at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival this past weekend, and while being surrounded by vegan food is amazing, it is also incredibly tempting because it’s all fair game. When you’re going to a food festival after lunch, the healthiest thing to do is to make some smart food choices up until you get…

Winnipeg’s Boon Burger: A Vegan Cafe in Canadian Meat-and-Potatoes Country

Little did I know that when I arrived in Winnipeg for my North American Road Trip, I would get to eat at Canada’s first all-vegan burger cafe!

In the second week of our North American Roadtrip, we finally made it up to Canada through the central province of Saskatchewan.  We ended up stopping for the night in the capital of Regina before driving further up past Yorkton, but I didn’t get any photos because by that time it was 10pm, and we…
