THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

{recipe} :: bubbie’s smoky (inadvertently vegan) eggplant dip

My Bubbie is your typical jewish grandmother, which means she LOVES cooking (and she especially loves feeding her grandkids). She gets so excited when I tell her about all the new recipes I’ve been trying out because that’s something we can share. She has always made the most delicious food and, in the past few...

{simple recipe} :: tacos

I love sharing super simple recipes that taste incredible. I had a couple of girlfriends over for dinner on Friday night and we were starving – we wanted to whip up something quick and easy. I’m on a budget and wanted to make something that’s also kind to my wallet. I remembered that I had...

{smoothie of the day} :: choco “bad girl” berry

I will admit, this is not my healthiest concoction! But I’m a good girl 90% of the time and sometimes I just wanna be bad. I woke up this morning and decided I wanted a treat. A girl’s gotta give in to her sweet tooth once in a while Ingredients/Instructions: *Handful of frozen mixed berries...
Food Trucks Galore in Montreal!

Food Trucks Galore in Montreal!

One of my summer goals is to get super involved in the events around the city. Montreal has so many fun activities and festivals every summer and I’ve never had a chance to experience them, seeing as I’ve been galavanting in other cities and countries come summer for the past six years.

{restaurant} :: mariani’s “le vegan” in st. henri

Tried Le Vegan for the first time at Mariani for brunch. It’s not bad, but regretting I strayed from my loyalty to their amazing addictive burrito.
NYE Easy Dinner: Sole with Lemon-Butter Sauce

NYE Easy Dinner: Sole with Lemon-Butter Sauce

  I was lucky enough to ring in the new year with some of my closest friends. We started the night at my apartment where I decided I wanted to whip up something for dinner that I’d never made before, but I wanted to make sure it was easy and wouldn’t take very long. It...

Life Update: I’m back and ready to blog

Hi Sweeties! As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a blogging and social media hiatus for several months. I made a video on my Youtube channel that will give you a bit of insight into why I have been absent, as well as an update on where I’m at now and my plans for...
Find your soul workout, then eat protein

Find your soul workout, then eat protein

I like to call gymnastics my “soul workout” – like soul mate, but for exercise. I have never liked exercising. The feeling of pushing my body to its limits has never appealed to me. Sure, I like the feeling I get afterward, but that feeling is mostly pride – I’m proud that I actually did...
Simple Recipe: Stuffed Peppers

Simple Recipe: Stuffed Peppers

This is my new favourite recipe! I was feeling adventurous so I experimented with an idea on a whim and I was SO impressed how delicious it turned out. I love how this is such an amazing way to get protein – incorporating beans into my diet has been hard for me and this recipe...
Why I'm No Longer a Health Nut

Why I’m No Longer a Health Nut

  I no longer consider myself a health nut. I know that sounds strange and contradictory, seeing as my blog title contains the phrase “Health Nut” — but it actually works perfectly. And I’ll tell you why. It’s the “Sweet” that makes all the difference. But I’ll get to that later.     First, let...
Homemade Perogies from Scratch

Homemade Perogies from Scratch

This recipe is courtesy of Josh. He made everything from scratch, including the dough. He’s awesome!   Josh loves making food in bulk (we like cooking for our roommates and having leftovers). This recipe makes approx. 70 perogies, so adjust your measurements accordingly   Ingredient list: 5 cups of plain/all-purpose flour (of that 5 cups keep...

Chocolate-Covered Cookie Dough Truffles (via Chocolate-Covered Katie)

When I make the same recipe twice in one week, you know it’s a good one. I didn’t even realize I had done it until my roommate pointed it out to me.   Me: “No way! I definitely made these last week. I waited a week!”   (Note: Although this recipe is super healthy for...
