About Moi

Christine A-S



Welcome to Mindful & fresh– a lifestyle blog for local health junkies. I launched this blog in July 2015 to share a few of my favourite things: local food, people, and everything fresh. I write daily about food, travel, style, beauty and life advice. I want to provide you with daily inspiration along with tips and advice to get the most out of every day.

I was born and raised in Montreal, Canada – but lived in New York between 2004 and 2011. The Northern New York life was too quiet as I hear my multilingual concrete jungle was screaming my name – since back I have been battling between my body image, dieting, finding my career, as well as living a balanced and stress free life.

My goal is to live life to the absolute fullest and to share my research and experience on this blog to hopefully inspire you to get out there and try something new.

As a mission statement, mindful + Fresh aims to post unique and healthy recipes that are predominantly veggie packed. Although I am in love with multi-flavors, I find it essential to taste the quality of your produce in your meal. This brings me to mention the philosophy of being mindful in all aspects of life, nutrition being one of them.

Mindful Philosophy – As the Buddhist philosophy suggests that being mindful requires one to be intentionally non-judgemental of another’s actions, intentions, while looking more profoundly for the “why”, “when”, “where”, and the “how”.  As being mindful suggests that everything one may do considers the fact that it will definitely affect others in and out of their path. Applying this philosophy onto everything in life such as food, scheduling, work life, being patient and so on, has become a lifestyle.

A lifestyle I am in the pursuit of educating myself with and practicing with mindful eating, thinking, scheduling, time-off social media (little time) as well as giving myself some ME moments! In this crazy world of movers and shakers, it is fairly easy to blur your own vision with life’s distracting woes. Join me on my pursuit towards a MINDFUL + FRESH LIFESTYLE!

What do I do now? I work everyday like everyone else. I love to eat, cook and drink. I enjoy being mindful about what I eat and lose my mind when I drink.

    Bonjour! Il n’y a qu’une semaine, sur le toit d’un grand immeuble à Montréal, que j’ai entendu pour la première fois a propos de ce site. Dès que j’ai entendu qu’il sagissait de “bouffe”, mon attention fût tout de suite captivé :P. J’adore ce qui se propose ici, que ce soit recettes ou petits trucs de vie, c’est super! J’attends avec impatience pour plus+ :D.
    À bientôt j’espère.

      1. 😉 If you ever want to collaborate on anything, let me know! Have you heard of Lufa Farms? I’m actually going to an open house on October 3rd- if you want, find me on Facebook and maybe we can meet each other there then write posts about it? Either look up Joanna the Montrealer or Joanna Ahti on Facebook if you’re interested.
