January Coffee Break

The first month of 2019 is almost over, which means it’s time for our January coffee break! 2019 is a big year for us and it’s off to a good start. We started the year in California on our big west coast road trip (details here!) and we’re slowly getting ready for our wedding in September and our big honeymoon to come after. All of that, plus lots of travelling, job changes, a possible move and lots of blog projects. Needless to say, it’s a busy, yet exciting year for us. We just came back from a weekend in Vancouver, our second road trip of the month. I was there for a two day course on tube feeding and intravenous feeding – In only a few months, I’ll be starting a…

Top 10 Recipes of 2018

It’s that time of year again – It’s time to look back at the top 10 recipes of 2018! How is this the last day of 2018? Every year I ask myself the same thing and every year seems to go by faster and faster. I believe my parents and grandparents now when they say time goes by faster the older you get. I really do. So here we are again, looking back over another year of recipes. These are the top 10 recipes of the year, according to you. In other words, these are the recipes that were the most visited and tried this year. So if you’re new to the blog, this is probably a good place to start. This is the second time I share a top 10 list and just like last year, each…

December Coffee Break

One last coffee break before the New Year. As I’m writing this, Shaun and I are in San Francisco. We left on Christmas day for our road trip across the West coast. So far, we’ve been to Portland and Crescent City and we’ve driven across the redwood parks here in California. I’ll share my favorite photos on the blog once we’re back home, but so far, this trip has been busy and absolutely wonderful. We’ll be driving along the California coast for the next few days and I couldn’t think of a better way to end 2018. Now let’s move on to our December coffee break! Reflecting on 2018 2018 was a big year. It was my first full year working as a dietitian, we…

November Coffee Break

I’m here for another coffee break post! In a way, it feels like forever since I last wrote a coffee break post, but then again, November just flew by. How is it December tomorrow already?! For this coffee break post, I don’t have a new recipe, but I can share what I’ve been drinking a lot of lately: My peppermint mocha of course. I’m drinking one as I’m writing this. I can’t get enough of this cozy drink this time of year. If you haven’t tried it already, you need to make it. Trust me, it’s life-changing. I also finished off a new batch of vegan cashew eggnog and I’m planning on making another one this weekend. Another must-try recipe this holiday season. What’s your go-to drink…

Soothing Lemon Ginger Tea + Coffee Break

Welcome to my second coffee break post! In these posts, I’ll be sharing a simple drink recipe I’m enjoying, along with a life update and other things I’m loving at the moment. For this coffee break post, I’m sharing a tea I’ve been making a lot lately – A soothing lemon ginger tea with turmeric. This is my go-to drink for when I’m feeling sick or when my digestion is bothering me. It feels great on my stomach and it helps me hydrate when I have a cold. Not to mention the ginger, which could help with nausea. This tea is so basic, that I actually hesitated sharing it. In the end though, I decided that it was a good addition to an already busy coffee break post, plus, others may find it helpful…
