Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Transformer, Squash Tacos and Deep Chocolate Supermilk

Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Transformer, Squash Tacos and Deep Chocolate Supermilk

I’m making my way through the new items on the Fresh Restaurants‘ menu, which most of you will know is a top favourite take-out / dine-in option of mine in the city of Toronto (soon to be expanding – next up is Montreal!). Yesterday a friend and I ate the Squash Tacos, the Transformer salad and the Deep Chocolate Supermilk on my very windy rooftop. Despite losing a chunk of cilantro here and there to the gusts – what a great meal. The Transformer is one that I’m very excited about, having been involved in coming up with the name.

Music Mondays: Crazy P – Heartbreaker

It’s a day late but here’s your BANGIN’ song for the gym this week. I can’t get enough of this track, thank you to my dear friend Ewan for the intro. It’s been playing about 5 times a day or more in my headphones and in my car, not to mention we had a pretty fun little dance party around my living room to it Friday evening! I love a good Aretha sample, and the original song is a favourite (I Never Loved a Man – Aretha Franklin). Listen here: And then you can follow this link to buy it on iTunes: Crazy P – When We On (Bonus...

Healthy Snacks

I’ve posted about this before, but we all need refreshers! You should never go longer than four hours without some fuel, so when your days are long and meals are widely spread out, you have to make sure you have some balanced in-betweeners to keep your blood sugar levels stable, energy high and body burning as it should.
