Now for Canadians, Thanksgiving is a mere 9 days away and it’s time to start thinking about the menu!

This year I’m striving for simplicity. If all goes well, I’ll be spending October getting ready to move. This is both super exciting and super stressful because it means I get to spend the month doing things like packing and cleaning. Bleh.

My foray into eating healthier began with breakfast.
