IN CONVERSATION WITH | TONYA PAPANIKOLOV OF THE WELL WOMAN

Tonya is a bright light. She works to bring life and dynamic energy to the way we approach and eat food through The Well Woman. Tonya is constantly seeking to reimagine our societal norms around food and self care, and boldly steps outside of tradition to carefully and sustainably care for our bodies and the planet. Tonya welcomed us into her charming Toronto home on a chilly winter day last month. Opening the door, she was beaming in a flowing flower jump suit - a peaceful protest to the chilly world outside. We warmed up with hot cups of hibiscus tea and talked about defiant color palettes, living outside of food traditions and making money as a woman in wellness.

IN CONVERSATION WITH | SARAH BRITTON OF MY NEW ROOTS

We met Sarah B. many years ago at a cabin in Northern Ontario. In fact, in retrospect, maybe it was our first 'unofficial' retreat! We exchanged ideas, thoughts, we sang, danced and naturally...ate. Of course, Sarah's food was, and is so delicious. But, beyond that, it is Sarah's reverence for food that is so striking. Her esteem and deep gratitude for the natural world that she works with is evident, and contagious. The earth clearly smiles at her. We couldn't be happier to see her thriving as an international food blogger, photographer and cookbook writer! We chatted with Sarah about her new book, the plant human connection, trusting your gut, and failure.
