It was a pleasure to host Unlikely Co. in our kitchen, we chatted all things food, I swore a lot… and we cooked up one hell of a healing soup.
Trilby Tanner and Cherie Tsang are the creators of Unlikely Co. They believe there are those who do what they love for a living and those who work so they can do what they love. What’s most important is knowing what moves you. And if you don’t? They can help.
Unlikely Co. was created out of the desire to find an answer to the question above. Committed to shaking up the daily routine by trying their hand at new experiences with Toronto’s local creatives, makers and innovators.
Check out the interview from their evening at the Goods, we’re sharing our new Be Well Superfood Soup recipe, so get in there.
We’re pretty smitten with our pals at the Home Depot Head Office. They invited us over for a Lunch and Learn and we regaled them with tales of our experience with plant food and sweet talked the team into a 7 Day Smoothie Challenge.
And guess what, they did it! Many of them already into their second week of green smoothie guzzling on the daily.
You can try our challenge on your own, all you need to do is make yourself a green smoothie a day for 7 days to experience the benefits of a daily clean, green drink.
We have lots of smoothie recipes on our blog or if you’d like to book a lunch and learn for your team drop us a line.
Hope you’re feeling great team, golden green stars for everyone.

I’ve been banging on for years about magical liquified veggies and I’m not about to stop, green smoothies are truly the gateway to better health.
24 Hours published my favourite recipe last week. It goes by many names, Sweet Lemon, the Gateway and Elle Elle’s Go-To. It’s the simplest of them all yet incredibly nourishing and hydrating.
We’ve served this smoothie to people ranging in age from 9 months to 70 years. All of them sucked it back and cried when it was gone… well not everyone cried but they all wanted more.
The Gateway Smoothie
2 cups filtered water
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 large handful organic spinach, or more
1 organic apple, quartered
1 organic pear, quartered
1/2 lemon, squeezed
Optional – 4 ice cubes
Add ingredients to an upright blender, blend until smooth.

If there was a pill that helped us feel and look great, curbed our cravings, tidied our digestive tracks all the while nourishing our bodies and upping our health game we’d probably all take it… non?
I’ve been drinking my daily dose of greens for 5 years. By blending your own smoothie regularly you’re setting the intention for good health. Consciously purchasing the organic spinach and kale, discovering your favourite apple, squeezing your lemons, washing the produce and blending it. Considering all the goodness you’re eating before you drink it. There is power in that. You’re seeing it, thinking it, handling it, consuming it. So many touch points for positive intention.
Drinking a thoughtfully made green drink seems to feel inherently good, it’s hard to ignore.
