The 2019 In Season Agenda is now available to order! Just in time for Christmas and the new year, you can order your copy here.
Like other years, the In Season Agenda is the perfect companion for living slow: eating local, growing your own food and savouring all the joys that each season brings. But what’s new is that it now covers the growing and what’s in season info for the entire province of British Columbia!
This is most definitely one of my favourite times of year…the summer farmers market near my home opens this weekend. While I adore the winter market that is located just down the hill from where I live (especially for picking up special gifts for the holiday season!), the summer ones have a very special energy. They’re bursting with people, farmers and a variety of produce – and the sun always seems to be shining. Even the fruits and veggies seem more chipper!
It’s out! My 2018 In Season Agenda is now available in bookstores and boutique shops all over Metro Vancouver! While it feels like another year is coming to a close all too soon, I do look forward to ushering in a new year with a new day planner! If you’re anything like me read on…

It’s not often enough that something you absolutely love also happens to be good for you, your community and the planet. For me, that “thing” is shopping at the farmers market.
It’s become a ritual in our home. Every Sunday morning, my husband and I grab our shopping bags and head out to the Coquitlam Farmers Market to get a week’s supply of the freshest fruits, vegetables, bread, honey and eggs.
For those of you who read my posts or follow along on social media, you’ve probably noticed I’m a big advocate for shopping at the farmers market. Why again? Here’s a recap…
I recently went shopping for a day planner in hopes of finding something a little more robust than what I currently have, and when I couldn’t find one that had everything I was looking for I decided to make my own! I basically combined my passions for design, eating well and the four seasons into this piece, and am so pleased and excited about how it turned out. So I added a few more features and am now selling it, too!
The theme of it is In Season and celebrates the foods that are in season (like the calendar I designed last year) and offers suggestions on when to grow what, how to enjoy each month and lists the farmers markets in Metro Vancouver, plus more…
While I designed it for myself, I think any local food lover, grower, farmers market shopper, stationary enthusiast – and anyone who wishes to live in harmony with the seasons – would enjoy it as well.
It’s that time of the year when farmers market shoppers stock up on as much fresh, local produce as they can and start saying goodbye to their favourite vendors as they pack up for Winter.
But it’s not all bad news. Winter farmers markets are popping up – and sticking around – more and more! They usually run until the following Spring, when the Summer markets tend to kick off again.
Here’s a list of Winter Farmers Markets in and around Vancouver:
This past Spring/Summer I had the great pleasure of writing for Edible Magazine and getting to know Rocky Point Ice Cream. Edible Magazine is by far my favourite magazine, and I fell in love with Rocky Point Ice Cream years ago after I stumbled upon their parlour and tasted the most delicious ice cream that I’d ever had (seriously). Every visit there, with their ice cream truck Scooper parked outside, felt like a return to childhood. And that nostalgia inspired me to write the article.
Super ironic, I know, that my first credit as a Nutritionist is writing about of all things ice cream! But I couldn’t help it :[
