Have you ever thought about quitting your job? Just walking in, saying “I’ve had enough, I’m out of here,” and committing wholeheartedly to a new dream. If that is you, or if you know someone who’s had that thought, this episode was created for you!
Sarah Huggins was my guest today — and she has an incredible story to share! Sarah went from a comfy, cozy corporate gig as a lawyer to opening a restaurant — a restaurant focused on healthy, uncomplicated, wholesome food. In this episode, she talks about the criticism, how she stayed clear to her vision, and how she balances her new career as an entrepreneur with three young kids at home. For obvious reasons, I totally resonated with her story, I loved what she had to say, and we had so much fun in this episode!

If you’re dreaming about ditching your day job to pursue a lifelong calling, Sarah Huggins has been there, done that. “I spent 10 years as a lawyer and I enjoyed it, but my passion just seemed to grow and grow and grow, and it seemed inevitable that this was something I had to do, or I’d live to regret it,” says Huggins.
That passion: her deep love of cooking, shaped by her West Coast roots. The inevitable: opening her own restaurant, Mary Be Kitchen (21 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto), to share her “whole food for the soul” philosophy.
Huggins has already established herself as a food blogger; she’s been dishing out fuss-free, family-friendly recipes on her website, Kiwi & Bean (the nicknames for her husband and her daughter, respectively), since 2013. Now, with her new fast-casual spot in midtown, she’s welcoming all of Toronto to her table. (fleetstreetmag.com/city/mary-be-kitchen-toronto/)
