Happy Friday, Folks! And a happy Valentine’s weekend to those of you who are celebrating / romantically inclined. A couple of things on my mind this week. One, this post from 101 Cookbooks in which Heidi talks about being kind to your future self. That idea has really stuck with me and I’ve been putting…

I sat for a long time writing this meal plan, not really knowing what to put on it. By this I mean only what’s for lunch on Tuesday and Thursday, because the rest of the week is so much built around routine and Friday is another attempt at lunch out (this week’s lunch out was…

Here we are again. Another week, another meal plan. I started writing this one way in advance, and I suppose I could have left it as is, but I wanted to show you that the meal plan is a fluid thing. For example, last weekend I didn’t get around to making those veggie burger patties…

Hello folks! Another Friday, another weekly meal plan for y’all. Nothing too out of the ordinary in the coming week. On Wednesday a dear friend and colleague is celebrating a milestone birthday so a group of us are heading out for lunch to celebrate. There’s a great ‘food studio’ near our office that does a…

First meal plan of the year! Ahhhh, it feels good to get back to basics. I didn’t bother with a meal plan this week because we had a short work week, but next week will be my first full week back at work so I’ve gotta get down to business this weekend packing some lunches….

This is my last meal plan of 2014! Hard to believe time has flown by and next week is my last work week of the year. My parents are going to be in Stockholm for a couple of days early in the week and so we’re going to a traditional Swedish Christmas buffet (Julbord) on…

It’s that time of year. Lunches out, which mean not only a richer lunch than I’d ordinarily have, but also that I miss my lunch hour swim. I’m trying to stay balanced by keeping other meals on the light side, and I’ve gone super green with my morning smoothies. It occurred to me this morning…

Hi friends, happy Friday! I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had peaceful and loving days (and lots of pie!) and are enjoying some much deserved rest and relaxation today. How is it already December next week? Total insanity! Of course the holiday parties, luncheons, cookie swaps, and so on are getting into…

See how dark that photo is? I took it outside on my balcony this morning  AND adjusted the exposure / brightness afterwards. Have you taken your vitamin D today? Next week officially kicks off the holidays for so many of you! I’ve got kind of a funky week coming up. A girl’s night is in…

Another week, another meal plan. Just where does the time go? I’m looking forward to a lunch out with my former thesis supervisor next week. It’s my turn to pick the restaurant, which is a terrible idea since I practically never go out for lunch so I’ll probably just end up picking the one place…

So, I’m on a bit of a zucchini noodles kick. I’m trying to make friends with my spiralizer, and it turns out that zucchini noodles are a great base for lunch on my lighter eating days. I’ve been topping them with cubed tofu and then drizzling with soy sauce and the tiniest bit of toasted…

Happy Friday my friends! It’s a wet and windy one here, so wherever you are I wish you a warm and cozy weekend. Some fun stuff on the meal plan next week. I’m dusting off my spiralizer and having zucchini noodles with tofu and sesame for some of my fast day lunches, and I’m experimenting with…

Hi Folks! We’re off to Amsterdam this afternoon and looking forward to a weekend of marathon running (Paul) canal exploring (me) and general good times. You can follow our Amsterdam adventures on instagram! Since we won’t get home until Monday afternoon, I won’t have time to do the usual meal prep for the week, so…

Happy Friday, Folks! Another week and another meal plan! The beginning of the week is same old same old, but it’s going out with a bang! We’re off to Amsterdam on Friday afternoon for Paul’s annual fall marathon. We know the city well now and always really look forward to a visit. Who knows what…

You may notice there’s something missing from this week’s meal plan: no breakfast on Monday or Wednesday. Keen eye. I get a lot of questions about different ways of eating, and in order to be best informed I do as much background reading as possible and usually try out eating that way for a time….

Happy Friday everyone! Meal plan confession time: when I make something that’s produce sensitive like that broccoli and tofu stir-fry, I usually eat it a few days in a row so I get it at its freshest, but I write it out on alternating days so I don’t look like a crazy person. The whole…

Hey folks! Coming at you with another weekly meal plan. New to the meal plan this week is strata! I had an ageing loaf of beautiful whole grain bread lying around, so I used it up making the corn, scallion, and cheddar and scallion strata from Smitten Kitchen. I implore you all to do yourselves a…

You know you’ve had one of those weeks when you realize on Sunday that your Friday post has been sitting in drafts all weekend. Sigh. Oh well, better late than never, right? The meal plan this week includes some new recipes I’m trying out, and some tried and true favourites. I’ve got a stash of…

Wait, what’s this? What’s Good Around The Web on a Friday?! Yup! Just trying to keep you on your toes! I’ve got something special planned for Sunday this week so I thought I’d post this today instead. And it has me thinking – is Friday a better day for this post in general, given that…
