Here, our co-founder Kendall Barber shares - in detail - what she'd do on her Perfect Saturday, and what pair of Poppy Barley boots she'd be wearing while doing it...
I love mornings. On weekdays, I’m usually up by 5:30am. On weekends, I “sleep in” until 7am. I always start my day with coffee and a read of the Globe and Mail, the New York Times and my favorite blogs. Then it’s action time: I glance at my email and map out my day on Evernote (the best productivity tool for a visual person like me!).
For breakfast, I’m obsessed with banana pancakes. Loaded with nutrition, a stack of these delicious pancakes keeps me satisfied until lunch. And, they are so easy to make: 1 banana, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp ground flax and a drop of vanilla. Blend all ingredients in blender and pour into a grill greased with a bit of coconut oil.
Every Saturday morning, I run with my girlfriends. My next race is the Boston Marathon in April. Marathon training means literally my entire Saturday morning is dedicated to running – 2-3 hours running through the beautiful Edmonton river valley. After a long run what I crave most is a green juice (4 curly kale leaves, 2 pears, a handful of spinach, a few sprigs of mint, ½ a lemon and a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger).
The best Saturday evening is spent with my husband and friends. This is how the night should go: start in a crowded wine bar sampling grapes. Move to a late dinner reservation at Corso 32 where chef Daniel Costa transports me to Italy with outstandingly fresh food, inspired recipes and a very cozy space.
