HELLO! GOSH, IT’S BEEN A WHILE! I’m so sorry for the delay but I went on my honeymoon, recorded my comedy album and had a lot of other things on my plate. LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY.

Hello friends! I’ve been eating vegetarian for over two weeks now. Aside from being a touch sleepy, which could be due to other factors, I feel really good about what I’m eating. Overall, I’m making healthier choices and loading up on vegetables and legumes.

I’M HOME FROM TOUR! Instead of being in some cute coffee shop in Vancouver or Victoria, I’m at my local neighbourhood haunt in Toronto. Jimmy’s Coffee on Ossington.

Winter sucks. I’m over it. Yes, winter is great if you can spend your time skiing, skating and making snow angles but as a woman on the go in a big city, I don’t have time for that! Sometimes I don’t even feel like going outside to get groceries but I do it anyway because… Continue reading Julia’s Two Bean Beef Chili
Last week was a rough. Cancer took the lives of a ton of celebrities (and a ton of other people who aren’t famous so it wasn’t in the news. F*&# CANCER).
