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} :: 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...

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

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).

Orthorexia Nervosa – Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

The following is a post that I made in February of 2011 on my Tumblr account. I wrote this when I was heading in the direction of a food and health obsession. Everything I wrote is still accurate and relevant, except my emotional and mental connection to eating has changed since then. I no longer...
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,...
