During my seven-year career as a DJ, I had the chance to work and attend 400+ weddings all over Toronto and the GTA. I’m always paying close attention to the food, service and how well I am treated (even as a staff member – these are the people who will sing your praises). A few of them stand out in my mind, so I’m sharing my most favourite and unique wedding venues in Toronto as an industry-insider: Continue reading →

If you’re new to smoothies and not sure where to start, this Strawberry Orange Banana Smoothie is a great jumping off point to start your year refreshed. From there, you can start incorporating spinach or other greens to get your full serving of fruits and vegetables in the morning.
This smoothie makes a delicious breakfast on-the-go. Just add your favorite vanilla protein powder to make it a meal and keep you full until lunch time. Or skip the protein powder and enjoy this as an afternoon snack. I like to pair it up with a hard-boiled egg if I’m still hungry. Continue reading →

One of the things I’ve consciously been trying, is centering my meals more around vegetables with the meat being the side dish or flavouring. This Steak Nicoise Salad totally satisfies all of my red meat cravings while keeping dinner healthy at the same time. Which is great because I’ve been trying to do smoothies for breakfast and salads for dinner more.
I usually buy a nice cut of steak, grill it with some olive oil, salt and pepper. While that’s grilling off – I boil the eggs, cook the potatoes and green beans and assemble the salad. Continue reading →
