Anna Eidt & Her Vintage Plates for a Modern World

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

If you’ve ever been scrolling through Instagram, as one does – you might have come across artist Anna Eidt’s plates under the Instagram account name Lousongmade. Her plates are a bit saucy, a bit sassy and a whole lot of fun. One of the very first encounters I had scrolling through her account, was a bright and whimsical donut plate, as documented below. A month or so back, Anna reached out to us, at Fat Girl Food Squad inviting us…

Real Talk: Self-Caring Through Mindfulness And Breathing

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Fiorella Morzi

Now that a lot of us are breaking from work for a little while, during the rush that is the holidays, let’s make sure we remember to spend time caring for ourselves, re-charging in ways that make sense to our wellbeing and spirits.   It doesn’t really look like winter right now where I am, in the GTA, though the days are certainly getting colder. I have to zip my coat up all the way to the top to cover…

Just Like Ma: Greeking Out in Hidden Valley with Yuli’s Granny’s Greek Salad Recipe

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

My grandma was the type of cook to keep to the recipe, so any time we noticed she went off script we were there to be supportive. Offer up the yums and the belly rubs to show we really liked it, and that her biggest way of showing us love was appreciated. Really, this kind of thing was very important to her, if you burped after (or during) one of her meals, she’d take it as a “compliments to the…

A Taste of Ylfa Helgadóttir’s Iceland

11 Nov, 2015  |  by Geo Peck

Every year, an oft forgotten country sends out its feelers to the rest of the world, pleading “I’m here! I’m here! Look at all my awesome things!” And that tiny, awesome country is Iceland. It also happens to be my favorite place, but I really do think you should try to find that out for yourself by going for a visit. If you can’t make it there to meet Iceland in person, there is always The Taste of Iceland to…

Some of the harshest criticisms I’ve received for being fat have been from myself. Sure, in elementary school  I was called Crater Maker, was told I could block out the sun, and during swim practice Anthony P. liked to draw attention to “them rolls” in his loudest voice so it would carry over the dome of the Aquaplex. But those insults are tame in comparison to the things I said to myself in my head daily about being Plus Size…

Spring Spin: A New Menu For SPiN Toronto

4 Apr, 2015  |  by Rakhee Sapra

SPiN Toronto is a self-described ping-pong nightclub located in the heart of downtown Toronto. You can go have a drink, order some noms and play some ping pong. In my experience, when an establishment is defined by a particular activity, the food isn’t particularly impressive. I hear the phrase “no one goes there for the food” resounding in the back of my mind. SPiN thankfully doesn’t fall into this category. As the wonderful Chloe explained to me, SPiN recently hired…

Greenhouse Juice Co. is an organic, cold-pressed juice bar located at Yonge and MacPherson, just north of Rosedale station.

Greenhouse’s doorstep delivery program brings their juices, nut milks, boosters, and waters right to your home for any order over $34, and delivery is…

Toronto’s Secret Patios: Aroma Espresso Bar

8 Aug, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

It’s no secret that we love coffee here at FGFS. You can’t keep us from a good cold brew on a hot summer day, or from talking your ear off about what a year it’s been for Yirgacheff. Something we love equally? A good patio. Flowers and greenery are appreciated, but shade and location are key. For our on-going summer series of Hidden Gem patios we hit up Aroma’s newest location on College Street to test drive the patio with…

Wanderlust: Fat Babes Explore the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake

8 Aug, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

“I re-watched Sideways recently, so I’ve got this,” I said to a friend days before we set out to tour the wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake. First off, it was three fat babes rolling those back roads, not some modern-day milquetoast version of Felix and Oscar, and we finished the trip off by hitting up a buffet, not some foolhardy wedding. Really the comparison begins and ends with winery tours. It was only a short trip down the highway, but we felt like…

Proud to be Canadian: Mandarin Buffet

7 Jul, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

Can I be 100% real for a moment? Mandarin Buffet was pretty much a staple of my childhood growing up. Every weekend (Sunday to be exact), my dad would take me to the Mandarin Buffet where we would chow down and catch up on life. You know: like good parents do. Fast-forward to 2014: here I am at the Mandarin Buffet with my home-girls Yuli (lead photographer in life) and writer, Carly. Since we took a road-trip, we find ourselves at…
