Earth Day came and went on April 22 and I procrastinated in writing this blog mainly because I am on the slow path of recovering from chronic over-commitments. Despite my limited efforts to have a more engaged relationship with the planet, I was relieved when I had the opportunity last week to revisit the philosophy […]

Division to Diversity

By Miwa Hiroe I’m hardly qualified to comment on what used to be normal when it comes to food. I remember having friends over as a kid and begging my mother, “can we PLEASE have something normal tonight?” Her resourcefulness consolidated with an exceptional creative license that resulted in all sorts of unlikely culinary combinations. […]

What’s new this season?

We’re back after a lull on the social media scene as a result of staff holidays. But this pause also gave me time to reflect on what’s important to offer at Infinity. I want to make ‘Local’ products more accessible and promote recycling / reuse. What’s better than chocolate – Local chocolate! Given our remote […]

The MCT trend

What is MCT Oil? You may recognize the name of this oil, or maybe you even put it into  your morning coffee. MCT oil is a product we carry at Infinity and recently it has been flying off the shelves. Here is why: MCT oil or Medium Chain Triglyceride oil is derived from our beloved coconut […]

By Miwa Hiroe We are, generally, decent at questioning things that are new to us: beliefs, behaviours, products, etc. and yet, if the subject in question has been all that we’ve ever known, since the dawn of our experienced time, it’s less likely to draw enough attention to be closely scrutinized, especially if it seems […]

The benefits of eating locally are endless. Yes, the food is healthier. Yes, it’s more sustainable and yes, it […]

By Miwa Hiroe I’ve been savouring wild rose season. I don’t know if there are more flowers than usual or if we’ve just gotten enough rain to sustain their blooms longer than last year, but they seem particularly plentiful. I picked some petals the other day and left them to dry on the kitchen counter […]

One of the reasons to get things at Infinity, other than it being convenient, is that I am able to stay focused on what I need rather than what I want … we’ve tried to stay with functional products and art that is useful, like pottery or Bolga baskets. I live to eat My morning […]

Monique is the friendly bilingual lady who usually works on weekday afternoons. She’s a great resource because she has tried many of the products herself and has read (and tried) scads of literature on different food regimens. These are some of her favourite products at Infinity: Food Sourdough Pasta (Pasta Fermentata) – Wheat has gotten […]

You may know Jenna (B) as the friendly face on Saturdays at the store. She has chosen a few of her favourite things at Infinity and I get the privilege of sharing them with you. Bath and Body: Jenna B enjoys the Wild Moon Organics face cream. She likes it for an everyday and night […]
