It’s been a full week since I got back from Toronto and I’m pretty sure I’m still reeling from the high of exploring a relatively new place. I’m not much of a traveller or adventurer, so I didn’t think I’d enjoy my short stay as much as I did, but I seriously had the best time. Since I’m not ready to give up the memories just yet, I thought I’d relive them in today’s WIAW post.
I’d gone to the grocery a couple days before leaving for Toronto and had some blueberries leftover, so I carried those with me. And, I walked with a small jar of oatmeal as well, because #oatporn. So, needless to say, my breakfasts were pretty standard for most of the days. I did mix it up with brunch at Cora’s one Sunday and sandwiches from Starbs a couple mornings as well. But, I was ravenous by the time I finally and they were promptly devoured without photo evidence. As usual.
If you follow me in Instagram or Facebook, you’d know that my trip to Toronto was all about the snacks, so this section is gonna be long. First, I discovered a health foods store literally across the street from where I was staying so I had to go exploring. That’s where I found an unending supply of Rise Kombucha and these epic vegan and gluten free brownies from Sweets from the Earth.
Then, I went to the Toronto Vegan Fest and managed to try some of the food available despite the insanely long lines. My favourite was the Richie Rich ice-cream cookie sandwich from Pleasantville Creamery, but the guava brownies from Ipanema Valley were a close second.
And, finally, I went to canfitpro, aka the reason for the trip, and of course there were a plethora of healthy goodies to be sampled. I tried Larabars (not pictured) for the first time and was blown away by how good they are. And I also discovered these new local (to Toronto) energy bars called inner-J bars which were also ridiculously good.
We all know that I live for breakfast and sweet stuff, so it’s probably no surprise that my lunch/dinner recaps from the trip are sorely lacking. I basically had the same things for lunch and dinner everyday: a salad from the Sobey’s salad bar or a sandwich/salad from the Subway down the street. If there’s a way to make a Subway sandwich look appetizing in photos, I haven’t discovered it yet, so there are no pics of those. But, the salads from Sobey’s were way too good not to photograph, so here’s one:
What about you?
- Take any trips recently? Where to? How was the food?
- Have you ever had any of the snacks I mentioned above? What did you think?
