essence of life Essence of Life is one of my favourite health food stores in the city. It is inexpensive, the staff are helpful, and it has everything I am looking for when it's time to stock up on groceries, supplements, beauty products... you name it.

Yesterday I had the perfect snowy Sunday afternoon simply taking my time perusing through the tight yet super-stocked aisles, putting a basket together of both things on my list, and things that jogged my inspiration while there. Moonbeam coffee in hand.

Head over to Kensington market and check out this little gem of a shop. You won't be disappointed! Plus, it has wonderful health-inspired stocking stuffers. :)
