Last Sunday!

Thanks to the internet (errr…twitter), I spent last Sunday having a ton on fun. I know I should have been home cooking soup or cleaning a bathtub but …..I have my priorities. It’s called “ENJOY TORONTO”. Which is exactly what I did.

My day looked like this:

11:00 – noon: Met a friend at La Bamboche (1712 Avenue Road) to try their green tea croissant.  I had been reading updates on this croissant  on twitter and facebook and knew I wanted to try it.  PS. While I’m mentioning La Bamboche, can you please mark off March 20th in your calendar for Macaron Day!! I will be blogging about this special day in a few weeks. Promise.

Love the concept of a green tea croissant. Just had to try it!!

12:30-1:30 pm – Dropped by the Junction Flea Market.  For close to two hours I strolled by 3 floors of unique exhibitors. I was so impressed by this impressive event which is held the second Sunday of every month. I didn’t buy anything but boy was I tempted!

Special mention to these vendors: These Woods, Rune, @crownflora,

2:00 – 3:30 p.m – Went to The Rhino  (1249 Queen W) to enjoy their Winter Beer Fest. I had NO idea that there would be 300 other craft beer fans there!! As Rob  said (from Beaus All Natural). “Clearly there is a demand for more Craft Beer events”.  I had a blast sampling a variety of beers and can’t wait to return for their next Beer Fest.

Beers ..that I sampled!


NO shortage of beers to try!!

People ask me all the time “How do I found out about all these events”. The answer is: “I find out about these events on Twitter”. Seriously.

Wonder what I will be doing this Sunday? Stay tuned!!

I have been training for the Mississauga half marathon since January. This means that I’ve been huffing and puffing on the treadmill at GoodLife Fitness 4-5 times a week. It also means that I’m more aware of what I’m drinking and eating. In particular I’m super aware of staying properly hydrated.

Please note, that plain tap water will always be my number one choice! But there are moments when I need a diversion. Do you know what I mean? So here’s a list of other beverages that I’m enjoying these days.

O.N.E Coconut Water:

I’m in love with this drink. Especially after a workout due the huge amounts of potassium in this beverage (19% for 670 g). It’s 100% coconut water and when it’s super cold – it’s delicious.


Talk about a refreshing drink!! As their website says “Pure Water. Real Mint”. There’s lots of different flavors – i.e spearmint, lemonmint, orangemint, and more – but I always seem to stick to the peppermint. On a side note:  I love the packaging.

Here’s a list of other drinks that I consume occasionally. Very occasionally.


This soft drink is made with pure cane sugar and not high fructose corn syrup – which means that it tastes WAY better. The rootbeer and the black cherry are my favorites but there’s lots of other great flavors too (grape, vanilla cream, orange, cola, birch, and gingerale). After you drink this brand it’s hard to reach for Crush.


Look at these two gorgeous bottles!! (Im a sucker for packaging – have you noticed?)

Great Lakes Brewery makes a refreshing Orange Pale Ale and Beaus All Natural is grabbing my attention too.  I will open one bottle after the Sporting Life 10 and the other bottle will be opened after the half marathon. Nothing like being prepared!!

What are you drinking these days?
