We started this blog with food in mind but as time went on, we kept finding other things we wanted to share with our readers. Life is complex. There are so many facets that work together to make us happy and healthy. In order to get the most out of life, we believe in good food, fun activities, great movies and music and whatever else that can stimulate our brains and fill our hearts.
Oh! By the way…WE are Nicole and Valerie. Val is the nutritional brains behind this whole venture. A registered dietitian/nutritionist, she has been a private practice dietitian for over 20 years. Val has believed in nourishing the body and mind with whole, fresh foods ever since she was a teen. Being active in road biking, mountain biking, skiing, and a marathon runner, Val has been able to witness the effects of good food on athletes first hand as well as in her practice. Val enjoys coming up with new and inventive combinations for her friends and family to try. Val loves discovering new music and great books too!
A long time runner, Nicole has competed in a number of different road races over the years, including the Around the Bay Road Race in Hamilton, Ontario. She is a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor and has been practicing Yoga for 17 years. Nicole has been baking forever and has had the pleasure of experimenting with gluten free baking since her husband was diagnosed a Celiac over 20 years ago. A self proclaimed geek, Nicole is the social media guru and amateur photographer as well as test baker. Nicole brings you her personal film choices that she hopes you will like too.
Together we want to share with you what we crave out of life and hope it will inspire you to give some of them a try.
