Vancouver-based cleaning and personal care refills at Greenworks

I have in the past Googled Greenworks Building Supply to see if it has anything to do with the Green Works brand I see in theĀ  London Drugs aisles all of the time, as I walk by the Greenworks building all of the time. Recently, I noticed this sandwich board being displayed outside. And it…

Next-level conscientious (I)

I’ve been working on this post for quite a while and life my lifehacks (Part 1) post, there really is no end to it. So at some point, I will cut off this list and just post and here is a guarantee there will be a follow-up post. This post itself is following up on…

Conscientious cooking (I)

In the past few months, I have been Conscientious Cooking and Post-Partum Prepping. It’s been a ride and not over yet. In between it all, I’m still making our favourite staples with meat (and post-partum recipes are not vegetarian/vegan), including: steamed egg and pork patty, mapo tofu, braised fuzzy melon with pork, egg salads, etc….

A week of Planted Meals for my last week of work

This week of work is my last week of work for some 80 weeks … ! To celebrate/mark/get through this milestone week, I treated myself to a work week’s worth of Planted Meals (full price, too!) and I was super excited because it was all different recipes from last time. In addition, I qualified for…

Cooking adventures with beans

Certain bean dishes, I’m partial to – like hummus and chili. Sometimes I’ll come across some lovely fava beans at a restaurant and want to make my own. But when you want to stop or decrease eating animal meat, then you gotta appreciate beans so much more. Recently, in my favourite butter chicken recipe, I…

A Bulk Barn trip is like Christmas to me

It was very timely as it was just ahead of a States-side road trip (to Point Roberts, WA – we’ve never been to), SmartCanucks posted about Bulk Barn’s Earth day deals. Since we’d be passing through Richmond, I immediately made a list of things to buy and was eager to wash out different size containers…

Conscientious Change

  When I first drafted this post to this effect, I had named it “Accidental veganism”. At that point, I had borrowed the Oh She Glows and Thug Kitchen cookbooks, not knowing they are vegan, and a few other cooking shenanigans that were vegan or practically vegan. I bookmarked a lot of recipes of course…

Planted Meals – Vancouver planted-based vegan prepared meals

Last week, I saw in on Erin Ireland’s Instagram Stories that she ordered a week of Planted Meals. The only two meals I remember now are peanut noodles and “beef” bourginon and with the 50% off off for first time orders, I was sold and enjoying Planted Meals this week. She also mentioned how the…

Nellie’s starter bundle

As the end of the year approaches, I’m trying to clear out as many of my blog post drafts as possible. Like this one! I actually made this purchase back in February. Seemingly at PNE every year and every one of the numerous home & garden shows at BC Place, there is a Nellie’s kiosk….

Some lifehacks for now (Part 1)

It seems like one of my current life goal is to ensure the house stays functional and doesn’t succumb to the constant influx of STUFF that disproportionately comes with having a child around, on top of two adult consumers. I haven’t collected all of the hacks I’ve noticed and I don’t know the shape of…
