People have asked me where I find such interesting guests to come on the show, and the truth is that I often discover them in really unique ways. Today’s guest, Daniel Klein from The Perennial Plate is the perfect example of that.
I found out about Daniel and Mira from TPP through a barista at one of the coffee shops I frequented in Toronto. We got onto the topic of food bloggers/videographers and she told me I had to check out TPP. I immediately went and mooched off their wifi to indulge in all of their videos. Once you see one of them, you will understand why.
I knew once I launched the podcast that I wanted to have them on the show to chat more about sustainable food, the various food cultures they’ve been able to explore around the world. And what’s it like to be producing so much video content. What I got in return was so much more.

You want a new Energy Ball recipe? We’ve got 50 of them for you!
Cassie here! As you guys may know if you used to read my blog (RIP), I a) work in social media marketing and b) do some social media and other behind the scenes work for Davida. I’m a numbers person. I like knowing what works and what doesn’t work. I can look at stats and give you an explanation behind them. Her energy ball recipes are some of the most pinned and most viewed content on THM.
One thing that still kinda blows my mind, even though I understand why? The Internet’s collective love of energy balls (or energy bites or protein bites or heathy truffles or whatever SEO-centric name you want to throw behind them). I get it — they are delicious, they’re a really satisfying snack (or pre-work out bite or light breakfast or dessert), they’re absurdly customizable. Who doesn’t want what is basically a healthy version of cookie dough or muffin batter in their best forms?
Another reason energy balls rock — they’re a safe snack for pretty much any food intolerance or allergy. They’re real food and you don’t even need to turn on the stove or pre-heat the oven. Perfect for summer when it’s too hot to even think about turning on the oven (unless you live in San Francisco, then please, if you need to bake, come over and warm up my apartment). Oh, and they make a great travel snack that lasts on the road and can get through TSA hassle-free (chia pudding, not so much, not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…)
