Locate your greens!

Although there ARE plenty of fresh and local fruits and veggies to be found at your local FARMER'S MARKET right now, where do you go to dine on them?  Making at home is great, of course!  But what do you do for a meal outside of your kitchen?

One of my go-to resources is on the Toronto Vegetarian Association site, under their listings page.  There are SO many choices these days, both in the city and in the surrounding areas.  (Bonus tips on how to incorporate more plants on your plate there too!)
They also have plenty of listings for many other products and/or services.  Even for RMTs... ahem.

Another great resource is the Happy Cow site (and app!).  They can help you locate eateries just about anywhere, complete with reviews!

Even the wine or beer you may (or may not) have with your meal has a website.  Barnivore.

Oh man, I am hungry.

SPRING (officially) has been here for several weeks now.  But this back-and-forth weather has certainly kept the blossoms at bay.  Hopefully, that will sort itself out very soon.
The delay of PROPER warmer, sunny, beautiful CONSISTENT weather has given us the opportunity to delay all of those "once the weather improves, I'll get out and be active..." plans.  Slowly but surely the bikers and runners are increasing in numbers.  Soon the outdoor team sports will be starting up too.  Eventually even the golfers will get their chance!
If you are one of those who has been delaying, delay no longer!  May is almost upon us.  As we know, the spring/summer months seem to fly by.  Now is the time to re-start those New Year resolutions, if they've faltered.  No shame in tripping up.  The only shame is not getting back at it again.

One more thing I know I am looking forward to with this imminent spring, is the beginning of local produce sighted at the farmer's markets!  SO many fresh and deeeelicious local fruits and veggies.  How much longer til the peaches?!?  Oh, and fiddleheads.  And BERRIES.  And, and, and....
I can not wait.
