As a holistic nutritionist, food is everything to me! I love the taste and benefits of great food! And with many of us travelling on road trips to enjoy the summer weather, food is a large part of the experience.

But you’ve heard it several times I am sure:



While on the road, windows down, belting Katy Perry lyrics (we all know them and can’t resist them!) the last thing we are thinking about is making healthy options at the next pit stop….. So I got to thinking on a recent road trip that though the options are quite limited there are some reasonable choices that can make to keep you on track.

Check out my choices from popular roadside pit stop spots:

Thursday Thought: There’s Nothing Sexier Than Being Smart




Can I fill you in on a little secret? I fully admit it, I’m a geek and I am totally obsessed with a YouTube channel called ASAP Science which consists of fun and easy to understand 2-minute scientific explanations created by Mitchell Moffit (@mitchellmoffit) and Gregory Brown (@whalewatchmeplz). These gentlemen answer who, what, when, where, why and how anything and everything works. I swear if my high school science class would’ve been this entertaining and educational years ago, I probably would be on a totally different career path right now. Learning has never been so fun! I highly recommend that you tune in to this series. Not only is it a good idea to enrich your mind, but this information is very useful and applies to our day-to-day lives.

Away To The Races With Escalade!



First stepping on the scene in 1999, the Cadillac Escalade was the epitome of rugged class.  A game changer in the SUV category, the Escalade brought back to the Cadillac brand that true classic American style that was birthed with the company all the way back in August of 1902.  I remember the first one I ever saw.  It was the colour of iridescent sand and it sparkled as it whipped past me on my walk to school.  It was the epitome of cool and I would have died for a ride.

Fast forward fifteen years or so and I’m invited to test out the Cadillac Escalade’s fourth generation on a customized ‘ride’ carefully crafted by the Cadillac team.  *pinch me*

Rolling up to The Hazelton bright and early we were greeted with a black and white lineup of the latest issue.


And after a little class in Cadillac’s latest and greatest we were asked to pick our poison (black or white) and hop on in for a ride up to Lake Simcoe.

Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich



I don’t eat fish or seafood but I LOVE tuna salad…  Go figure?  I’m strange… So when searching for picnic sandwich alternatives I came across some recipes on Pinterest for a vegan version of tuna salad.  A little weary at first – a chickpea sandwich?  I told my mind to hush, gave it a whirl and bah-dah-dah-dah-dah!  It was delicious.  I even whipped it up one afternoon for the Mr and fed it to him without an explanation of what it was (especially leaving out the word VEGAN) and he asked for seconds.  #win


You can serve it on whole grain bread, in wraps, on a salad or even wrapped in lettuce.  It’s refreshing and satisfying and perfect to pack up for a picnic – especially because there’s no dairy to worry about.  I’ve listed a few things as ‘optional’ because this is one of those recipes that’s great super simple but also lovely amped up by punchy flavors like dill pickle and smoked paprika, but it’s totally your call.

Here’s How
