TurF Vancouver Spring Menu | Kitsilano

TurF Vancouver Spring Menu | Kitsilano

TURF VANCOUVER KITSILANO VEGAN VEGETARIAN HEALTHY SMOOTHIES SPRING MENU Nomss.com food blog canada

TurF Vancouver is a fitness studio, restaurant & cafe and shop in the Kitsilano neighbourhood on West 4th. I love the healthy choices and wholesome food that makes you feel alive – no refined sugar, non-processed. Just a lot of organic ingredients, mostly plants and cared-for, happy animal proteins from sustainable local farmers and businesses. I love the variety of plant-based bowls, salads, toasts, smoothies and beverages. There is even a rotating wine list, taps from lowel breweries.

 

New to their Spring menu is a few delicious dishes that will fill you up without all the bloating!

The Green Thing Smoothie 9: Vegan and Gluten Free – a whole lot of parsley, kale, green apple, banana, almond milk, coconut water, hemp and sea salt! It is thick and not very watery. I love that it is packed full of healthy nutrients!

 

TURF VANCOUVER KITSILANO SPRING MENU Nomss.com food blog canada

Grilled Veg & Hummus Toast 10: Vegan – garlic and herb hummus topped with grilled Mediterranean vegetables and drizzles of balsamic glaze and basil oil. Served warm. The toast is loaded with hearty vegs that you will need to eat with your fork and knife.

Khatsahlano Salad 12: Vegan and Gluten Free – local hippies rejoice over this salad filled with shredded beets, carrots, jicama, and alfafa sprouts served with fresh seasonal green, superseed mix and miso poppy dressing. Topped with avocado! This salad definitely makes for a great cleanse and I love all the different textures and variety of greens!

Hot Meeze Bowl 10: Vegan and Gluten Free – for when you falafel—kale tabbouleh topped with warm chickpea falafels, grilled eggplant, artichoke and lemon tahini dressing.

Granola Bowl 10: Vegan and Gluten Free – This was one of my favourite items on the menu surprisingly. I love the house-made granola served with seasonal compote, chia pudding, almond butter, coconut yogurt, toasted coconut and seeds. The sweetness paired with tart seasonal fruits is a great contrast and the chia pudding is delicious! I can eat this not just for mornings but whenever.

 

 

Charcoal Latte 5: black tea and spices for a great detox warm beverage.

 

I highly recommend TurF if you are ever in the mood for some healthy eats! Don’t forget to sign up for their workout classes like cardio boot camp, pilates, strength, boxing, yoga, etc! Some of my favourite instructors are there and a 2-week intro rate of $50 (for more info HERE). And if you sign up for a TurF membership you get unlimited classes plus 15% off the Bistro Cafe and shop!

 

I’d like to hear what your favourite item is from TurF. If you’re there, don’t forget to tag me on all your Instagram pix #instanomss!

SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY IN BC AND ALBERTA

SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY IN BC AND ALBERTA

SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY British Columbia Alberta Get $20 OFF when you spend $60 with promo code "instanomss"

SPUD.ca is an online grocery store that brings local, organic and sustainable groceries directly to your door. They have a wide range of local and organic produce that follows traceable high standards. Best of all, they are committed to reducing food waste (they are the lowest waste grocery in Canada!) I love how SPUD is super convenient and allows you to make changes right up to 8pm the day before your scheduled delivery!

PSA: $20 OFF your first order of $60 or more: Promo Code “Instanomss”

 

I love shopping online because I love the convenience and how much time it saves me. And I don’t have to worry about forgetting to get that _______ (milk, eggs, bananas, avocados) that’s on my grocery list. You can create a “shopping list” like me and add it to a standing order for weekly deliveries. This I will never run out of staples or have to go back to the supermarket!

 

Zero Waste Grocery

Food waste is a huge problem in this country. We’ve all heard that $31 billion worth of food is wasted in Canada each year – that’s 40% of the total food produced in Canada. When you consider all the time, work, and resources that go to produce that food, just to be wasted, that number is even more staggering.

  • No In-Store Displays – obviously, because they are an online store!
  • Only ordering what is needed – some fresh items like my favourite BeFresh dips are only made when a customer orders them.
  • No need for huge inventory – daily deliveries to the warehouse to fill customer orders. 80% of inventory is turned over every 48 hours
  • Imperfect Products – they sell imperfect produce

 

Delivery

  • Free delivery with minimum $50 orders or you will be charged a $4 minimum order surcharge
  • Choose your delivery dates. There are usually two scheduled deliveries to your area for free. You can also choose free Pickup or Express delivery.
  • Delivery options for areas in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary and Edmonton.
  • Your grocery order is delivered in reusable deliver bins. Using bins helps us eliminate unnecessary packaging, reduce waste and lower our impact on the planet!
  • You are charged a small deposit for each bin and is refunded back after the bin is returned. SPUD will pick up the bin when they drop off your next order or you can arrange for a driver to come by the next time they are in your neighbourhood!
  • All your produce and groceries are insulated with ice packs and dry ice to keep everything cold until you are home to open it.

 

 

 

Quality

SPUD promises 100% guaranteed satisfaction and I have never had any problems with my food. In fact, most of my produce delivered is much nicer and fresher than store bought. IF something you receive isn’t up to par, they will refund you pronto! I also really love the quality of their sustainable meat selections – for example, local farmers like MapleHill, Farmcest and Two Rivers in my area raise their animals without antibiotics and fed no animal by-products. They are also grain-free.

Not only is a large selection of organic food but SPUD.ca also has a great selection of health & beauty products, vitamins and supplements, pet food and household products (cleaning supplies that are eco-friendly, baby supplies, etc.)

 

Price

Although it is pricier than some supermarkets, I love that they offer organic and sustainable products. I am willing to pay a little extra if I know that the produce and meats are traceable, comes from local farmers and has a better quality overall. The last thing I would want is to buy sub-par products which end up in the waste.

Hanamori Sushi Coquitlam | “the best” aburi sushi

Hanamori Sushi Coquitlam | “the best” aburi sushi

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Hanamori Sushi is located in Coquitlam (North Road / Lougheed neighbourhood). It is awkwardly located below an apartment building in the backlane behind Insadong. The restaurant has gone under new management/ owners. The restaurant is tiny with two booths, two tables and a four seater bar area. Despite the friendly service, we were pretty disappointed with all the raving reviews (that led us to this Japanese restaurant).

To reiterate, we were pretty disappointed about this sushi joint in Coquitlam that people were raving about. Some driving 1.5 hours to get to this place for “the best” aburi sushi. Suffice to say we were not mind blown but felt completely underwhelmed.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Aburi Salmon 3 each: Reminds me of the Tiger Eye from Sushi K Kamizato. It has rice and scallops in the center wrapped in salmon then torched. The teriyaki and hot sauce was just unnecessary.

Aburi Jumbo Scallop 3.25 each:  Jumbo is such a loose term when it comes to their “jumbo” scallops. The scallops were lightly torched compared to the other aburi. But I liked that the sauce was lighter.

Aburi Salmon Belly 3.25 each: very standard and neutral in terms of taste and freshness.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Red Dragon Roll 14: 2 pieces of prawn katsu, imitation crabmeat, avocado, seared spicy tuna on top with house special sauce. We found this roll to be overly saucy which completely covers the flavours of the individual ingredient. You can see the Korean influence use of sauce for this sushi roll.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Salmon Oshi 13 (6 pieces): salmon pressed sushi heavily sauced with mayo (but without flavour). The jalapeno was sliced too thick thus making the sushi too spicy and was not torched together with the oshi. Nothing compared to Miku, Minami, Sushi K or even Kai Japanese.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Scallop Oshi 13 (6 pieces): The nigiri oshi had an artificial sweet taste from the mayo. The scallops were dissatisfyingly minced instead of chopped or whole pieced.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Tempera Udon 10: Perhaps the silver lining of this piece was the nicely battered tempura. Light and crispy without being too greasy.

As mentioned, we were not impressed with “the best aburi”. Suffice to say our standards are spoiled by Miku, Minami, Sushi K. But it’s hard to justify a re-visit or a visit for those who have never been when a restaurant misses the mark on so many levels.
