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.

{cookbook} :: oh she glows

Just a quick post to relay my excitement — I just bought a new cookbook to add to my collection and I’m sooo excited! Not only is this book beautiful (every recipe has an accompanying frame-worthy photo), but it’s full of delicious vegan recipes I can’t wait to try out. Not only that, but the...
{recipe} :: super healthy, super flavourful superfood salad

{recipe} :: super healthy, super flavourful superfood salad

This is a recipe I concocted 3 months ago after watching Chef with Jon Favreau. I got totally inspired (but mostly hungry!) So I whipped up a midnight meal (to eat for lunch the next day — it’s bad to eat right before bed!) This is one of those mish-mash meals that are SO easy to make...

{CL recipe} :: blueberry sparkling lemonade

When Canadian Living sent me this month’s recipe (coming out in their August 2014 issue), I thought to myself Psh, this is a piece of cake! I just squeeze some lemons and blueberries and, voila, blueberry lemonade. Ya, no. Boy was I wrong. Not that this recipe isn’t doable, because it is, but it’s definitely...

{recipe} :: greek yogurt breakfast

{recipe} :: greek yogurt breakfast

I’m not vegan, but I’ve been trying to eliminate dairy as much as possible for the past several years. Sometimes I’ll go weeks without any dairy, while sometimes I can’t even go one day without it! (I love cheese). I avoid dairy for many reasons. Without getting into this topic too deeply, I don’t believe...

{recipe} :: my first strawberry jam via Canadian Living

One thing you should know about me is that I never get a complicated recipe right the first time. So if I can do it, anyone can! I was really excited to make Canadian Living’s strawberry jam recipe from scratch. I’ve always loved the idea of making jam, but never did it. To be honest,...
{recipe} :: dragon bowl // aux vivres

{recipe} :: dragon bowl // aux vivres

Aux Vivres is one of my favourite restaurants ever. It’s vegan and so delicious that even my non-vegetarian friends love it. I’ve never met someone who doesn’t love Aux Vivres. One of their most famous dishes is the Dragon Bowl, particularly for their Dragon sauce. There’s something insanely addictive about it. I recently started a...

Branche d’Olivier is one of my most recent favourite go-to natural health and bulk food shops. It’s in my neighbourhood –...

{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...
