Hi! My name is Helen.
I’m a city girl in Toronto learning to make healthy choices in food, physical activity and daily habits.
I love spending time in the kitchen and getting creative with new recipes. I also love to swim, play with photography, practice yoga and travel. The photo here was taken in Nice, France, one of the beautiful cities I fell in love with. When it comes to food, I truly believe in quality over quantity. Food allows me to connect with others, it challenges creativity and is even able to show a little bit of love.
I don’t own a business or hold big dinners at home with a crowd of friends and family, although both do sound tempting in the future. Like many others, I always had people tell me to eat or to avoid certain foods because it is “good/bad”. It really stirred up curiosity to seek out answers…and eventually led to my interest in health and nutrition.
At the moment I am studying my undergraduate of nutritional sciences. Social & community issues of nutrition is the area I hope to contribute to. I am passionate about food equity, animal rights, healthy eating, education around nutrition and supporting small-scale businesses and farmers. You will find posts on recipes that follow my plant-based lifestyle, vegan ventures, baked goods, as well as things I share about my life.

I’d love to hear from you, thanks for dropping by!
