You might know her as a Juno Award winning singer-songwriter, but Chantal Kreviazuk is also a wife and mother who loves pasta pomodoro and has a love-hate relationship with ballet barre workouts.

Learn a little bit more about her in this month’s installment of ‘It works for me.’

10 words that describe you:
Bold, tireless, curious, adventurous, generous, sensitive, strong, tired, happy, sad.

First paid job: Actress on a Canadian children’s TV series called Let’s Go. I also worked at my dad’s office answering phones.

Dream job: Neurosurgeon/landscape architect


Favourite song/artist:
John Lennon singing ‘Across the Universe’ for The Beatles

Favourite workouts: Ballet barre at Union (her and husband Raine Maida’s studio in Toronto). Cross-training. Mountain uphill running.

Least favourite workout: Also ballet barre – it’s hard!

Diet: I eat according to the documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer. It’s a fasting diet. I also avoid white foods like dairy and bread, and limit pasta. I love leafy greens and juicing.

Go-to healthy snack:
Go Organic bars, trail mix, pistachios and cashews. I also crave avocados.

Favourite food indulgence:
Pasta pomodoro

White or red wine? White Moscato (a type of grape)

Coffee or tea?
I love them both. I have a small cup of coffee in the morning, but drink tea throughout the day. I love rose tea.

Indoor or outdoor workouts? Both. I like to mix it up a lot.


Morning or evening workouts?
Both. During the week I like to get up, go out and start the day. On the weekend I go later.

Celeb crush: Raine Maida (lead vocalist for alt-rock band Our Lady Peace)

Dream travel destination:
Bora Bora

Healthy living philosophy: Balance. Don’t be overindulgent. Too much of anything is not a good thing. Do I want three glasses of wine? Yes. But I don’t want to take away from tomorrow.
