Better With Sprinkles

The Colourful Side to Healthy Living.


Welcome to my blog!


My name is Sam, I’m 23 years old, from London, Ontario. Currently, I’m living in Brantford with my boyfriend, Eric, and am enrolled in the Masters Criminology program at Wilfrid Laurier.

I started this blog in July 2012 as a means of sharing my daily life with my friends, family and people who like to talk about food and working out as much as I do. I had been reading healthy living blogs for years – so it felt like time to start my own.

Basically, my blog chronicles some of my daily thoughts and activities – recipes, workouts, food obsessions, thoughts on body image/acceptance, and whatever random thoughts happen to be floating around in my head.



I’m a huge fitness enthusiast. I started by going to the gym my first year of university, pedalling away on the elliptical. Soon, I started to look forward to my gym time and fell in love with the feeling of being active. That’s when I started running – it cleared my mind and made me feel on top of the world. I completed my first (and to date, only) race in July 2011 – a 10k with a time of 53:18.


Currently, my workout love is heavy weights. I love how badass I feel when I hit a new PR in the gym, and watching my strength and my muscles grow. My opinion on fitness is that as long as you’re moving you’re a little bit, than you’re golden – so we’ll have to wait and see what my next workout obsession is. As it is now, I’m up for pretty much anything and will try any workout at least once.


To put it simply, I adore food. I like cooking it, I like eating it, I like meal planning, I like dreaming up recipes. But of course, eating it tops everything.


After months (years) of trial and error, I’m finally starting to figure out a way of eating that works for me. I listen to my body and give it what it wants – whether that’s a big salad loaded with veggies, a huge, juicy steak, or eating ice cream right out of the carton. I eat well, and I’m an absolute dessert-aholic. Chocolate is a must for me daily. of course, even better if I can throw some sprinkles on there. Smile

Unfortunately, my relationship with food was not always as positive as it is now. I spent most of my undergrad suffering from anorexia.

If you feel inclined, you can read my ED page to learn more about my journey with anorexia and how I recovered.


Thank you for stopping by my blog! I’m a bit of a talker, so please, email or follow me!
