The only 'om' I know is om...nomnomnom.
(Ha, get it?)
I'm not a morning person, by any means. But when I was invited to take part in celebrating International Yoga Day at the InterContinental® Toronto Centre (@ICTorontoCentre) with the Yoga Network of Canada, I decided why not? So I got my bum out of bed this morning by using #1 from my 5 Effective Ways to go to the Gym in the Morning.
A little earlier this month, I got the opportunity to go an Urban Whisky Trail led by Toronto Food Tours (@foodtoursTO). For those whisky lovers, this is for you. It is exactly what you think it is. You walk around Toronto bar-hopping and drinking whisky. I had such a fun experience wandering around downtown with the two hosts, John Anderson and Chef Scott Savoie. Let's start drinkin'!
This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to attend Toronto Taste, a charity event for Second Harvest, Canada’s largest food rescue charity. Presented by The Daniels Corporation, Taste Toronto has been a legendary culinary fundraiser for 26 years, and even got recognition from the CN Tower! The tower lit up in green in recognition of this culinary fundraiser - how cool is that?
Did you know 1 in 8 Canadian families struggle to put food on their table? Each dollar spent at Toronto Taste feeds 2 people in need. The event was a huge success and raised over $850,000 for Second Harvest, allowing them to provide 1.7 million meals for those in need. I'm so happy I was able to take part of such an amazing culinary event while doing it for a good cause as well. Check out secondharvest.ca to see how you can help and for more details!
