Ladies you need to know: Shupe's Soups and Healthy Roots Meg

Seeing people I work alongside shine and thrive makes me oh so happy! I feel so grateful to be surrounded by a community of talented, inspiring and just plain remarkable people.

These two ladies just redid their website and you simply must check them out:

Morgan Shupe: Shupe's Soups
 Morgan's food is one of the many reasons I wish I lived in Vancouver. Vega HQ is pretty baller, but it wouldn't be the same without the epic salad bar, soup and entrees this girl whips up single-handedly every day. If you've ever checked out a Vega recipe, there's a high likelihood that Morgan created it. Not only are her recipes delicious, but she's super fun, has wicked cool tattoos and loves cats.

Morgan cooks, lifts and has sick tattoos. get to know her.

If you've ever had tummy troubles, Meg's your gal. As a nutritionist, she focuses not on one specific nutrition paradigm, but on working with her clients to make them feel their best in their body. She's passionate about healthy food systems and is making huge positive changes in the Toronto area. Check out her blog for inspiring lifestyle articles and delicious recipes!

Still bored with the internet? Don't forget about 75toGo and Fitness Leash!

Get in the Know: 75toGo

If you've could look in my inbox, you'd realize I'm a compulsive email list subscriber. I find a website or blog that I like and instantly add myself to their newsletter. This happens to be how I stay semi-on-top of what's going on in the world. But while I learn a lot from these various website and blogs, it can be quite overwhelming, and with the same compulsion I add myself to lists, I also send the same emails to Trash. While I have been better about unsubscribing lately, there are some newsletters and blogs that I will never not read.

75toGo is my new favorite. Run and curated by my friend Kevin Liu, 75toGo delivers longform articles to the 25-year-old trying to survive their next 75 years. How great is that??

While the main focus is on health and fitness issues (which I appreciate), they also talk a lot about food, fashion and living the good life. The thing I appreciate oh so much (and is sadly lacking in most content) is their dedication to research. If you've ever worked with me, you know that high-quality writing + research to support it = makes me keep on keepin' on. 

Plus, although most their articles are dripping with information (hello 2000 word essays), and completely worth devoting 5 minutes of your life too, if those 5 minutes would be better spent elsewhere, you can digest a quick and dirty synopsis.

I suggest you start here: The Best Coconut Water and Will Lifting Heavy Weights Make Me Bulky?, then add this one to the top of your "Awesome websites to subscribe to" list. I sure have.
