Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy almost Love Day! I’m a sucker for romance, love and all things Valentine’s Day. BUT, I am all about staying in on Valentine’s Day.

So I decided to start a blog…

Welcome to my journey. My name is Cindi and six months ago, I realized that the standard Canadian diet is absolutely barbaric (and so unhealthy!). I have been an avid gym-goer for the last 4 years and was sucked into the lifting lifestyle of chicken breast, eggs and salmon. Even typing this out now makes […]
