Guys, let's be real for one second: eating clean and being a functional adult is great and all, but honestly... who has the time?
Let me rephrase that - it can be super time consuming to dream up recipes, go out grocery shopping, prep your food, cook your food, and then somehow muster up the energy to enjoy the meal. And then do the same thing all throughout the week, while juggling classes and work on top of that. Sounds stressful right?
A sample of some of the unique options on their menu? Their Chicken & Cashew Pesto wrap, with marinated chicken, cashew pesto, roasted tomatoes, red bell peppers, and corn lettuce; and their Beetroot Couscous & Tempeh salad, with kale, romaine lettuce, tempeh, roasted green and red onions, lentils, baked pita chips, and specially made beetroot couscous.
Honestly, the flavours, fragrances, and freshness of these dishes are simply unbeatable. Thankfully, the portions here are also super fulfilling... and even though you might get full, trust, the taste will have you coming back for more and more!
Frais & Fresh is also super convenient: not only do they offer delicious and nutritious food for you at their location, but they also do takeout and catering. It's actually perfect for your next work meeting!
Thinking of giving Frais & Fresh a try? Well, as of August 1st, they are launching their "A Cup Of Freshness" campaign where they will be distributing cups of salad all over their area to give people a sense of who they are. So if you just so happen to be in the McGill and Old Port area, you could be receiving a cup of freshness.
And because the people at Frais & Fresh are so awesome, they are even going to have a basket of fresh fruit at the entrance for those who are craving a little snack. Best part? It's free.
Sounds like your newest fave food discovery? Then check out Frais & Fresh on August 1st and visit them on Facebook and Instagram for more information!
Archaeology museum Pointe-à-Callière is bringing its popular 18th-century market back to Old Montreal this year. The museum says its market occupies the same spot as the one first established by French settlers.
Once again at the Place Royale, craftspeople will be selling their wares and demonstrating colonial skills.
A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."
The maze installations are being created by Quebec's Charlie Larouche (Glassware Artist), Jeroen Kleijn (DJ & Olfactory Artist) and Chantal Royer (Botanical Artist) who were inspired by the taste of Bombay Bramble, a new naturally-flavoured raspberry and blackberry gin.
The experience will be completely free, and anyone over the age of 18 can take part.
In addition to a Bombay Bramble sample, guests will leave with a signature Bombay Sapphire Balloon Glass that they can use to stir up fun drinks at home.

Swing By This Sandy Beach In The Middle Of Downtown
Where: Saint James United Church, 463, rue Sainte-Catherine O., Montreal, QC
When: June 4 to September 26, 2021
Why You Need To Go: Yes, you read that right — just outside Saint James United Church is the coolest sandy beach hangout, where you can even bring booze. It's the most relaxing place to chill in the middle of the downtown core.
This particular oasis is described as a "vacation in the sun, right in the downtown core" with "comfortable furniture, shade, a seaside soundscape, and that one-of-a-kind feeling of hot sand underfoot."
Alcohol is allowed, as long as you consume it with food so you can BYOB if you really want to set the mood of being on holiday.
Sitting on a lounge chair with your toes in the sand as you sip on a cocktail under the sun, it's hard to believe this is really Sainte-Catherine.
At the very least, it's the perfect place to relax after a long day of shopping.
