And our love for local blogs continues this week with Murr's. Mariah Craig is the self-proclaimed culinary ninja behind Murr's Menu, creating gorgeous custom meal plans, desserts and recipe generation. I'm excited to share my recipe for savoury sprouted Mung Patty Cakes with you and Murr's loyal followers. Who the heck needs a pita with these babies around. Check us out now on Murr's Menu.

It's home cooking kinda weather and we've partnered with local friends, who create beautifully plant powered blogs, to share some of our favourite new recipes with them and you. This week, the lovely Tara Tomulka, creator of Rawcology has invited me guest blog and I've chosen my recipe for these addictive BBQ Brussles Crisps. They are raw, vegan and delicious. Check us out now on Rawcology.

  Thanks to the lovely Meghan Telpner, the mastermind behind the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and the author of Undiet, for compiling this fantastic Healthy City Guide. Whether you need suggestions for what to do when your longtime vegetarian mother-in-law comes to town, or you personally could use support while transitioning to your healthy, conscious lifestyle. There are loads of top-notch local businesses in our beautiful city, all passionately waiting to share their thoughtful products and services with good people like you. Get out there and explore. Thanks for the mention ACN, you all rock!

  We're pretty excited, we had the lovely ladies in from The Coveteur and they were just so darn nice and sweet that we decided we should share five of our lunch recipes with them. What's so great about these recipes, other than the fact that there are delicious raw, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free and low-glycemic options.... they are also super easy to prepare, you don't even need a blender for three of them AND they each make four days worth of lunches. Get yourself organized Sunday night and you'll have lunch Monday through Thursday. Smart. Here's a challenge, over the next five weeks make one salad each week and let us know how great you feel after eating the Goods daily... and how jealous your work mates are over your beautiful lunches and glowing skin.
