Beet and goat cheese salad
AND LAMB BABY LAMB
Capras is amazing they’ve recently re-vamped some things and it’s absolutely tasteful. One thing I always have is Massimo’s signature beet risotto. I order it every time so I strayed from it this time but DEFINITELY a must try if it’s your first time. The wine was impeccable. From the liquor, to desserts, to mains everything seems to come together here. Also super f***ing cozy in there. ALSO, they have brunch. I must say one of the best salmon eggs Benny’s I’ve had. I’ll be back 🍝🍷 @capraskitchen

✨Tips when eating out✨
1️⃣Look at the menu beforehand so you have an idea of the types of food offered.
2️⃣Ask your waiter for a glass of warm water with a slice of lemon. Drink this while you wait for your food to arrive.
3️⃣Take a tincture of digestive bitters before your meal if needed. This stimulates bile flow to aid digestion. I recommend @stfrancisherbfarm Canadian bitters or @florahealthy Swedish bitters.
4️⃣Avoid drinking too much water or other beverages during your meal, especially if they’re cold.
5️⃣Choose a meal that offers protein, healthy fats, and veggies. These will keep you satiated and of course offer more nutrients!
6️⃣Opt for healthier versions of a food where possible, like having grilled salmon instead of fried chicken.
7️⃣Bring a digestive enzyme and take it before your meal. Some brands I recommend for enzymes are @enzymedica, @florahealthy, @nowfoodsofficial, and @renewlifecanada.
8️⃣And finally, remember nobody is perfect, not even the world’s best nutritionist. Indulge in foods once in awhile and never feel guilty about it! Eating out with friends should be enjoyable, not dreadful. I love fries and pizza and I’ll have them when I want to.😛

This isn’t your mom’s Tuna Noodle Casserole. I know, for a fact, this certainly isn’t MY mom’s tuna noodle casserole because she never made one 😂 Growing up, canned tuna was reserved solely for being mixed with copious amounts of mayo and slathered on bread. In desperately hungry situations when that was just too much work, I grabbed a fork and dove right into the can. But tuna cooked into something? Never. As mom affectionately said: “I just don’t like hot tuna.” Well, dear mother, this from-scratch Tuna Noodle Casserole from @canadianliving will hopefully change your mind! A luscious cream sauce, good quality canned tuna and copious amounts of cheese make up this delicious wonder and did I mention it’s topped with potato chips?! YUM. Mom, please give hot tuna a chance. Sincerely, your loving daughter. Link in bio ♥️

1. Tokyo Rose, Yuzu Totoro, Lychee Sangria
2. Miso Eggplant
4. Seaweed Sashimi Salad
5. Panko Soft-Shell Crab
6. Flatlay of the previous three apps with cute menus
7. Assorted Aburi Sushi
Big thanks to @eat.with.sandra and @thehaamtoronto for having me!! Let’s start off with the drinks. I got the Yuzu Totoro which was really refreshing. We also got a bottle of sake and a couple of Soju bottles for the table. It’s only a work night, but no big deal lol. I particularly enjoyed the Miso Eggplant; it was pretty with the colourful flower garnishes, soft, and the eggplant really absorbed the miso flavour. The Ceviche is a great sharing snack with the taco chips but a bit hard to eat gracefully haha. The Seaweed Sashimi Salad was a nice twist on your regular seaweed salad with big chunks of sashimi mixed in. I’ve got a soft spot for soft-shell crab so I was really excited for this dish. It’s plated with some guac and chipotle mayo which I loveeeee. Only downfall was that I had to share this dish haha. Next time, hopefully I share it with less people haha. Anddddd… aren’t the menus so cute?? Each menu had a different cover design from various animes/cartoons. I got the Ponyo one hehe. Also, not really pictured here but also delicious was the Spicy Chicken Karaage. Meaty and juicy, with not too much batter. For my main dish, I ordered the Assorted Aburi Sushi plate. It’s hard to go wrong with aburi, and I was definitely very happy with this dish. You get a nice mix of various fish and flavours. Anddd lastly, the service was great here – the waitresses were nice and attentive, which really is hard to come by sometimes. Overall, an amazing dinner with great company. Can’t wait to go back! 🙌
It’s never too cold for ice cream 🍦
I made it over to the Toronto location of @taiyakinyc just before its grand opening last month and I can’t say it tops my list of ice cream shops in the city. For starters, they ran out of a number of flavours when I got there. This was very disappointing considering it was only 7pm. So I settled for their matcha ice cream in a red bean taiyaki cone. Topped with strawberry drizzle, matcha powder and rainbow mochi. While it does look great, I was surprised at its size. For the price ($7.08 + tax) it’s very small. The fish cone wasn’t very crispy on the outside and the red bean inside, the little amount that there was, could’ve been more flavourful. Perhaps the batch was not freshly made? Or had been sitting for some time? The ice cream was a let down and I love all things matcha. It lacked the matcha flavour. It tasted like plain ice cream. The strawberry drizzle and rainbow mochi are nice touches, but they didn’t add anything but a little colour to the treat. There are better fish in the sea.
The MANE EVENT aka @eliastheodorou is less than 4 weeks away from his fight @ufc 231 right here in our home town Toronto! We’re exited to be in his corner!
When I first got married and moved to Toronto from Montreal, this was my go to spot. Somehow, I always found myself at this cafe. Although I’ve lived in Toronto before, it felt different this time.
So many things changed in my life in such a short period of time. I didn’t have my family here and was getting used to being part of another. I went from living by myself for 5 years (during undergrad) to living with a new person. From being a student with a lot of extracurricular activities, to being a new, unemployed graduate.
Being a very driven person my whole life, I always had high expectations of myself. I always have the need to be in control of my life, and I have the need to be at 100% ALL THE TIME (ugh). Those few months, I remember feeling lost. I didn’t know where to start looking for work, how to transfer over my Quebec teaching license, how to fill up my days.
Thinking back now, it’s amazing to see how everything falls into place. I put in the work, and what’s best for me came my way. Alhamdulillah.
As a new mom, feeling like you’re losing parts of yourself is so common! The first few months after having Z, forget about being at my 100, I felt in the negative. It slowly gets better though. And it does get easier, alhamdulillah. I just want to remind myself that it will all fall into place again inshaAllah, just like it always does.
