A guide to eating with dietary restrictions in Kingston

When the Sleepless Goat Café closed last year, gluten-intolerants and vegans lost a staple. It may be rare to find alternative diet options, so we’ve assembled a list of places that cater to a variety of different diets from vegans, vegetarians and the gluten-free to seafood lovers and ardent carnivores alike.

The balancing act of self-love & healthy living

Both sides are flawed and neither hold the key to perfect health or body image. Instead, we need to practice parts of both philosophies simultaneously — such as eating healthy and working out while also practicing radical self-love.

About

Michelle K Allan

Hello! My name is Michelle and I'm a student journalist. I am currently finishing one last elective at Queen's University. I will be graduating Spring 2019 from my B.A. (Honours) with a major of English Language & Literature.

During my studies at Queen's, I have worked at many campus media outlets. I am currently the Head Journalist for Inquire Publication, and my previous positions have included Assistant Editor of Photography/Staff Writer at The Queen's Journal, Editor of The Undergraduate Review, and Reporter/Sports Coordinator at CFRC 101.9.

This summer I did a foreign reporting student program at the Reuters offices in Prague with Transitions Online, an online media organization covering politics and news of Central/Eastern Europe.

The previous summer I worked at The Beaverton, a Toronto-based satirical news publication. I was able to contribute both to the online publication and the TV show.

When not occupied by journalistic endeavors, I often work in photography and graphic design. I’ve done graphic design work for Supes Legit Productions which can be seen in the webseries #Interns. I’ve also held many photography jobs, including at The Queen's Journal and the Queen's Arts and Science Undergraduate Society.

If you’re interested in collaborating or hiring me for freelance work, I can be reached at contact@michelleallan.ca.
