Our Road Trip to Gaspésie in Pictures

We came back from our road trip to Gaspésie one week ago, yet it feels like it was yesterday. It also feels like it was forever ago. How are we September 13 already?!

18 Simple Tips to Eat Healthy on a (Student) Budget

As a dietetic student, it’s important for me to eat healthy, but with a tight budget, it isn’t always easy. It’s my last year of university and after 5 years of studying, you better believe I’ve developed a few habits to save money. Hopefully some of my tips can help you as well!
