Food! Glorious Food! #Vegetarian #Vegan

This pretty much sums up my entire trip to Canada! All we did was eat from start to finish! Diet? What diet? lol

I can’t get over the variety and amazing food there is in all the local supermarkets! This is just a tiny portion of the store! #homesick

The vegan options are endless! Vegan sausages! Vegan egg! Veganaise! I’d have to travel to the end of the earth to get that here!

Vegan breakfast!…

The best thing for me is that the fruit and veggies actually taste of what they are, not some watered down chemically altered versions as everything is pretty much organic! #lovesit

Of course I had to have poutine…

And Starbucks! My favourite coffee shop in the world! Look at how beautifully they decorated the coffees! Gold sparkles!

It was my mums birthday so we had homemade vegan chilli with rice, salad and Mexican dips! Beyond delicious! Check out the size of the strawberry on the cake we got at Metro! #yum

Of course we also had to try the local Vegan restaurant! We went three times in two weeks and it was beyond delicious! We can’t wait to go back! I’ll leave the link to their Trip Advisor site in case you’re in the Whitby area and are craving delicious Vegan food!

Here is the link to their Trip Advisor Page! Copper Branch Brooklin

So I hope you enjoyed my Ode to Food! It was amazing and I can’t wait to go back!

Happy Eating!

Holiday Decor Everywhere!

Food from heaven! If you are in Canada don’t miss out on the Snowflake Donut at Tim Hortons! It is amazing!

As it is the holiday season, there were decorations up all over Toronto. So I’ll share them with you since there isn’t much of a holiday vibe here in Spain.

Here is the Santa Castle in the Pickering Town Centre! If I had one wish I’d be back there right now! I hope Santa is listening! And a random sparkling deer!

The downtown area in Toronto was also full of lights and decorations! So beautiful!

Holiday vibes all over!

The Eatons Centre was the most impressive with a massive light up tree in the centre of the mall!

DSCN0924

Loves it! It was so tall I couldn’t even get the top part in the shot!

It also had this cool deer halfway down the mall!

Canadian Tire has the best holiday decorations! I am always so inspired when I see their displays!

DSCN0939

What a mood!

Check out these gorgeous baubles! All you need for a tree!

DSCN0938

Finally I found the tree section! My next tree will be colourful and pre-lit! The blue one is my favourite so far!

Hope you’re having a great holiday season! I’ll slowly catch up on the trip pictures and throw in a few hauls as well!

Keep warm and happy holidays! xoxo! 

Toronto Trip Memories Part 1! A very Vegan Welcome!

But first,… check out the mall!!! So modern and civilised! This picture was taken at my favourite mall, the Oshawa Centre! They have all of my favourite stores like Victoria’s Secret, La Senza and Forever 21! Of course it was one of the first places we went!

Cute decorations were up for the Holiday Season!

And we had to go to the promised land as well… the Lindt Store! We got a bag full of different chocolates! So delicious!

Winter feels so much nicer when it’s actually really cold outside! Even going to the car was fun!

For dinner we had a delicious home cooked meal by my friend Nara Schuler! Vegan beans with oven baked potatoes, rice and mixed salad! Beyond delicious!

Here is a closeup of my plate!

Halloween Happiness!

Halloween in review! I didn’t do anything I planned to do, or what normal people did! I did get to check out the cool decoration at my friends bar Magpies at the Port and I’m guessing they had a fantastic party that evening.

We stayed in but had some yummy frozen fruit-infused water! It looks really spectacular but is literally just frozen fruit and loads of ice in water!

Here is a close up! We used berries, peaches and coconut but you can use any fruit you like! So refreshing!

For snacks I had roasted Chestnuts, my favourite of the season!

The most fun I had was in my Happy Planner with my Halloween insert from my Etsy shop Yatsinas Art Shop on Etsy and some free printable stickers by madeinaday.com

1509547131714

Here are some closeups of the Halloween stickers! I love the little spiders and bat icons!

1509546926848

And I hid my to-do-list under the EEK! Sticker by only applying glue to the top part of the cutout and using it as a little flap to cover my list!

1509547252789

Our days off I decorated with the other icons that came with the page! So cute!

1509547431363

I call it quantity-time because we’re not used to having so much time off! lol I’m sure we’ll find something interesting to do!

Hope you had a Happy Halloween too! 

 

Fall-ing in Love with Vegetarian Food!

20171006_083707

Looks like Buffy stopped by my house last night! lol…

Fall is finally arriving! Even in hot Spain! The air is crisper and the daytime isn’t unbearably hot anymore! Finally! I even managed to get a vegan pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks the other day!

I’m trying to go vegan, but sometimes it’s difficult, so I’m apparently classed as a #parisvegan, a person who eats vegetarian when they go out with family and friends, but tries to eat vegan whenever they can… sounds about right!

We went for date night dinner at El Candil, a little restaurant in Fuengirola the other night and it was amazing!

20171004_172111

The view looking out the windows at the carusel is so cute!

20171004_172151_HDR

20171004_172237

The food is mainly meat, but it does have vegetarian options, and they were delicious!

I had the house salad,

20171004_173751

garlic bread,

20171004_173757

and vegetarian pasta!

20171004_175841

I really enjoyed it and will be back asap! If you’re in the area, you should check it out! Easy to find by the carousel at the Fuengirola port!

Finally I found this cute quote that sums up my feelings for fall!

Happy Pumpkin Spice Lattes!
