Bridal Veil Falls and the Othello Tunnels in BC.
Lots of walking and awesome sights the past two days!
More pictures from our sight seeing. The hike for the falls was pretty tiring since it’s such a steep incline, but it was only about 7 minutes long, so it can’t really count as a workout haha. So pretty out here.Source: rock-the-boat

Anyone who’s ever followed me knows, I’m not a big fan of any type of eating style which restricts unnecessarily or makes my life in any way more difficult, but I’ve been considering going gluten free. I’ve had chronic migraines for nearly a decade now (which is saying something when you’re only 21), I get random skin rashes which seem to appear without provocation, and I’ve noticed that sometimes when I accidentally skip grains for a day or two (this actually is a problem and does happen when I’m busy and on the go) sometimes I actually feel better…
So, my gluten free friends (I know there’s more than a few of you) what do you think? Is it worth the hassle? What do you recommend and are there any ‘sneaky’ foods I should stay away from?
This aged, academic document was created in a laboratory setting. But times have changed (along with serving sizes) and the guide should, too
An awesome article on why Canada’s Food Guide just isn’t practical anymore. A simple example? It assumes that a ‘serving’ of grains, like a piece of bread is only 65 calories, yet nearly every supermarket brand comes close to doubling that caloric count. As someone who as a teenager tried to use this resource to get healthy and lose weight, I’m now a lot less surprised that it didn’t work out for me.
I can’t wait until my boyfriend goes back to work and I can start eating breakfasts like these on the regular, I think this is the first day in months that my eggs haven’t been 1/3 bacon grease.
Half a grapefruit, 12 grain toast, and 2 eggs scrambled. A nice boost of protein, sugar and some complex carbs to lock it all in.
