IG: Whenever I hit up @traderjoes, my basket almost always looks simple, like this: @kerrygoldusa @rxbar @epicbar. Until they come to Canada (???one day?), they’re my U.S. visit staples. And it’s always the topic of interesting conversations at the checkout haha. The unfortunate part is that these 20 butters won’t even last us THATTTT long ?. Wahhhhhh. (But FYI butter freezes like a charm Ok I also added an organic avocado ? after I took this pic, but that’s was it!

IG: COMPOST MAGIC???: these healthy little seedlings grew themselves from the food scraps my parents had been digging into their raised beds all fall/winter. My mom “cold composted” for years, which is the advanced/accelerated composting method of blending up plant waste with water and pouring it into the earth for “rapid fire absorption” (kinda like juicing for humans). But when her health started to decline, she didn’t have the energy to do this. So, my stepdad was just digging the whole scraps into the earth, aka regular composting. But from this has come a miraculous array of healthy seedlings!! We gots all these mystery squashes/pumpkin seedlings, what I believe is watermelon seedlings (or tiny squash), a million cherry tomato seedlings, sprouting garlic, seed potatoes and moreeee. And this particular picture is just the LEFTOVER sprouts after I had already planted about 30 of the larger ones in the raised beds over the past 2 days. 8 raised beds planted, 2 to go! Today I thank the universe and my mom for the gift of these magical mystery sprouts that are so healthy and full of life. Happy Saturday to you

IG: I’ve been so busy with garden prep and seed planting that I’ve been seriously slacking on the meal sharing– but here we go: today’s lunch (or 1:30pm breakfast? First meal of the day anyway) is grassfed Aussie filet mignon (with @kerrygoldusa butter, Himalayan salt and pepper) atop a fresh crunchy salad of romaine, kale+broccoli+sunflower sprouts, chunky avocado and @farmhouseculture garlic dill pickle sauerkraut ??. I’ve taken a break from my own garden ventures to go to Ohio and hang with my stepdad and help prepare and seed the gardens he lovingly set up in their new home for my garden-master mom last season. She’d be stoked we are doing this together and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. We are both missing her so much, but I’m feeling all the love and gratitude that I am able to be here, do this and honour her. Xo

IG: Oh yeah, it’s EARTH DAY! Celebrate recycling and growing your own organic food by creating a simple milk crate veggie garden. Here’s how: Step 1: locate some unwanted, pre-loved milk crates. Ask a restaurant, Starbucks, your friends… I traded a couple beers for 5 black ones on @bunz_official, haha. Step 2: line them with 1-2 reusable shopping bags. You know, those cheap thin fabric ones you got for free and that you can rip holes in if you pull them too hard? Those are PERFECT (Not canvas or plastic lined/higher quality ones). Use 1 big one to line the whole thing or cut 2 smaller ones up. Step 3: fill your crate with good organic soil. I love @promixgardening organic vegetable and herb mix, and I combine that with some of my own rich compost, but if you don’t have compost, just the soil itself is AWESOME! Step 4: plant seeds or seedlings in the soil. Here I have Blue Scotch Curly kale babies. if you’d like, you can add a thin layer of natural cedar mulch on top to help the plants retain moisture/easily remove any weeds. But this just is an optional upgrade. And BOOM! You’ve got a sweet, recycled milk crate garden that you can easily move around, expand/contract and grow LOTS in, even in tight urban spaces #2017

IG: My @spoonkspace Spoonk acupressure mat is one of my favourite tools for relaxation/de-stressing. Lying on it actually makes me fall asleep, so I will often lie on it in bed. Anyway, apparently it feels good for kitties too, because I just walked into our bedroom and found this–???out collllllllld, so relaxed

IG: My ghetto AF greenhouse? Can I even call it that?! I literally ran out of space inside and it’s been too cold to leave these guys outside overnight still… so I had to get creative. I closed in the chickenwire tomato enclosure that Jeff built me last summer using scrap plastic I found around the house and popped an old shelf in there… the front is a $2 Dollarama shower curtain I used as a drop cloth for painting, one side is a Goodwill donation bag, one is another random clear plastic bag, the roof is some ancient plastic sheet also used for a paint drop cloth and the back wall is an old blue cotton sheet. All secured with hockey tape and a little masking tape. But hey, it was basically zero degrees Celsius last night and they were fine this morning, so it WORKS! I mean, there was no point in spending money on this hilarious venture or trying to make it look good when it’s totally temporary. Plus it’s funnier this way

IG: It’s Easter weekend, so I must re-post this Easter-themed photo which is probably my favourite photo of 2015, and was a wonderful Easter weekend spent in Ohio with my family. Easter is a significant holiday for me because it happens to be the anniversary of my dad’s passing (Easter weekend– Saturday, April 15, 1995) and though the timing of Easter weekend varies each April, sometimes earlier and sometimes later, this year happens to fall on the exact weekend/day as it did 22 years ago. So, I will be taking extra time this weekend to show love and gratitude for everyone who holds a place in my heart (it’s a realllll full space❤️), whether they are still around or not. And to recollect the amazing memories of people and experiences I’ve had, because I have been SOOOO friggin’ blessed. Whatever Easter means to you, I’m wishing you all a wonderful weekend full of love, gratitude and genuine laughs (exactly what I am experiencing in this photo…). Xo
