Fat Sick and Nearly Dead | a Joe Cross Film

I bought a juicer a few years ago. I like juicing beets and carrots, to say the least… $10 and I just started using it regularly –  and a few days later, found this movie. Needless to say, one juice

What eating habits can tell you about work habits

I’ve long been assessing strength and weakness at the table… even so far as to discuss the awareness and reasoning of an observed consumption pattern. Not always a good conversation, but always a “real” one… What eating habits can tell

  • Five days in June on a budget June 28, 2017
    Thanks for that. Along with the perch roll, the clam chowder has a good reputation. I had paid a small supplement to change from fries to poutine for my perch roll combo, so I didn't think I'd have room for the chowder. (I was right.)
  • restaurants in cote des neiges area and queen mary June 27, 2017
    I've been meaning to try out their breads Willie, how does their baguette rank? It is a block and change west of Coolbrook between Earnscliffe and Clanranald. There is another recent bakery near Coolbrook and Decarie called Chez Masha but never tried that either. There's an opening soon place between Decarie and Coolbrook for what […]
  • Atwater Market for tourist? June 26, 2017
    We like the little cheese shop near the bottom of the main stairs. Good selection of cheeses and all sorts of olives and yogurts and specials on cheeses outside.
  • Oil-Free Hummus June 25, 2017
    I'm not sure but the Andalos bakery in StLaurent sell package hummus but not sure if they put oil in it. 350 Boulevard Lebeau, Saint-Laurent, QC H4N 1R5
  • Emerald room report June 25, 2017
    The moscow mule is very good. The ginger syrup is homemade and it shows. However, it is served in a glass container so it will not be as cold as it should be (one does not need a copper vessel but metal is essential to keep the drink appropriately cold). Also, the mint was roughed […]
  • Montreal vs Toronto June 16, 2017
    I only get to London for a few days every year or so. The last good dinner I had, last May, was a traditional English meal at Rules,which was recommended to me by Harters . To me, the restaurantlooked like a bit of a tourist trap, and the service was soso, but we enjoyed the […]

  • Montreal style pizza June 15, 2017
    Well this is an old post but as of today, the best Montreal-Style Pizza is definitely at Pronto on Mount-Royal Avenue
  • Zhao Ravioli Dumplings (ex Trilogie spot) June 15, 2017
    Zhao ravioli dumplings 8521 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal, QC H2P 2M9 Was in the neighborhood so why not. If you don't take a chance you'll never know. In my head I was minded and knew it wouldn't be as good as Trilogie but I was pleasantly surprised by my chicken and shiitake mushroom boiled dumplings. […]
