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.

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.
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...
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...

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...
Recipe: Butternut Pumpkin (aka Winter Squash) Soup Purée

Recipe: Butternut Pumpkin (aka Winter Squash) Soup Purée

Josh decided to buy a massive butternut pumpkin (that’s what they call butternut squash in Australia). He has a slight obsession with it and we buy it pretty often, but I don’t mind. It’s so delicious! It’s also a great source of fibre, vitamin C, manganese, magnesium, and potassium, vitamin A and vitamin E, and rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants. We usually cut it...

Screw labels! Be your best self. Don’t feel like you need to fit into a mold.

  I love this video so much. I’m such a fan of Fran and her website (www.highonhealth.com). It’s so hard to try to confine yourself in such a specific box when everybody’s bodies are different. I think that we need to do the best we can for our bodies and really listen to what our...

  This weekend, my roommates and I decided to have “Dumpling Night.” It ended up being super easy and incredibly delicious. I just ate some for the second time this week (leftovers). They are amazing!! We made then with dough from scratch this weekend, but Josh was in charge of that and I’m not exactly...
Healthy Snack: Terra Chips

Healthy Snack: Terra Chips

I bought these chips at Loblaws. They seem pretty healthy to me and they taste amazing! And I don’t even usually like chips. They are mixed root vegetable chips by Terra (mediterranean flavour). So the chips are made of sweet potato, parsnip, batata, taro and yuca. I only know the first two… I need to...
