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!

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!

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.

Starbucks Summer Drinks and S’mores Frappuccino returns Nomss.com Food Blog

Top six ways to customize your favourite Starbucks drink

1. Select your milk: Customers can choose from whole, 2% milk or nonfat milk, or non-dairy alternatives such as soy, coconut and almond.

2. Ask for fewer pumps of syrup: To lessen the sweetness of your flavoured beverage, ask for fewer pumps of syrup, or select a sugar-free syrup, available in Vanilla or Cinnamon Dolce, or our Skinny Mocha Sauce.

3. Try a sweetener substitute such as Sweet’N Low®, Equal®, SPLENDA® or Stevia Blend from Whole Earth.

4. Ask for “less whip” or “no whip.”

5. Make it “Skinny”: Most handcrafted espresso and Frappuccino® blended beverages can be requested “skinny,” which means the beverage is made with nonfat milk, no whipped cream and a sugar-free syrup if available.

6. Add cold foam: this delicious and creamy treat is a perfect addition to an iced coffee or cold brew beverage.
