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.

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,...

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.

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...
