Happy Canada Day, eh! I don’t really do anything crazy on Canada Day, probably because it’s not even half as exciting as the fourth of July in the US. I was in Hawaii one year for the 4th of July and that was fun. Beach, boyfriend, fireworks, and coconut bras…what else could you want? Kidding. There were no coconut bras. There aren’t hula girls running around Hawaii like I had thought.
Anyway, I came across this and thought it was funny:
I thought about it…and the only Canadian foods I could think of were maple syrup and poutine. A lot of people ask what poutine is (I didn’t realize the US doesn’t have them). It’s basically french fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. Some places have other toppings you can add like meat, veggies, sour cream, guacamole…yeah. So healthy, right?
So July is upon us and that means a new month to set new goals and take part in some fun challenges! I’ve been looking around in blog land to find out who is hosting what challenges and I think I am going to take part in two. Katelyn over at Chef Katelyn is have an Eat Clean Sweat Dirty Challenge.
Tweet (@ChefKatelyn), Blog, Instagram, or share your progress on Facebook using the hashtags #eatcleansweatdirty, #makeithappen, and #chefkatelyn. Find out more about Katelyn and this challenge here. I’m excited!!
Charissa (who I just “met”) from The Colourful Palate is having a colourful smoothie challenge which I am equally excited about.
Make yourself a smoothie a day and tweet Charissa (@ColourfulPalate) with your pictures (using #colourfulsmoothie). That’s it. She’s even got a point system and some prizes happening so go check out her post for all of the details! This challenge couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I’ve been wanting to switch things up, especially with the weather being so hot. I love the idea of making a nutrient-packed smoothie as one of my meals. You can get so creative with them by adding things like spinach, avocados, even sweet potatoes! I can’t wait!
Where are you from? Do you have any traditional foods?
Are you taking part in any challenges this month?
Tell me one of your goals for the month of July!
