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} :: 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...

{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...

{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...

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...
One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren't Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren’t Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

The second we put food in our mouths, the digestion process begins, thanks to our saliva. Guess what? Our alkaline saliva is not meant to break down animal flesh; carnivores have acid saliva, perfectly designed for the task. And hydrochloric acid, essential for digesting carcass, is secreted in very small amounts in our stomachs. However,...
