Hello everyone. It's been unseasonably warm here which also coincided with hubby coming home for five days, which is almost unheard of. We spent a few of those days exploring Edmonton's specialty stores. We found a wonderful Portuguese supermarket and bakery where we sat and had coffee and beautiful Portuguese Egg Tarts. We took some … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life & More Trucker Meals
I know, I know, it's been over month since I last posted anything here. Now that Christmas and New Year are a distant memory, things should be a lot more regular around here. My freezer meals from last month worked out really well. I did enjoy not having to cook every single night, but by … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
Hello everyone! I've lost 3 lbs since Monday! Woo hoo! I stepped up my water intake and reduced my alcohol intake, and I've been keeping up with my exercises, be it 30 minutes walking with my dogs, or my lovely dance routine. I also run my business from my basement, and spend quite a bit … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Immune-Boosting Soup & More Freezer Meals
Hi everyone! I know, I know, it's been a long, long time since I last posted. Things have changed drastically around here. We made a huge life change and moved from the small holiday town of Halfmoon Bay in British Columbia, to chilly Edmonton in Alberta! Why, do you ask? Mainly family - our children … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Freezer Meals and How to Cook for a Truck Driver

How did I do it? Well, I stepped up my intake of water to about 6 glasses a day, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Home Made Hummus!
Hello all. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It rained all weekend here 😦 which meant I had no choice but to do indoors-y things like laundry and cleaning (uugh). But it also prompted hubby to make some delicious chocolate chip and almond butter cookies from our well-used Thug Kitchen Book, and I made … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
HellOooo! I hope you've all had a lovely week and tried some of the meals in this Blog. I didn't lose any weight this week (might have been the chocolate bar I wolfed down over the weekend!), but I didn't gain any either, so that's a good thing. I've been managing about 2,500 steps a … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Healthy Breakfasts and Packed Lunches
Hello everyone. Well, the weather is finally starting to warm up here in Halfmoon Bay. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the rest of Canada where it seems to have regressed back into winter and it actually starting snowing again over the weekend! Uuggh. Thank goodness we live on the west coast where it's … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Saving Money & Exercising!
Hello Almost Vegetarian readers. I must confess that in the past few weeks I have fallen desperately off the sugar wagon. I have a long-standing love affair with chocolate, but that's not the problem. The problem is that, when I buy a bar of chocolate, I have to eat the entire bar! It doesn't matter … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Fruit Salad
Hi everyone. I just noticed that my last post was almost a month ago! I can't believe it's been that long. Things have been quite hectic here lately and I had a very stressful 2 or 3 weeks at work to the point where I almost made myself ill. I've been down this road before, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Taking Time for Myself
