Family gatherings V. diet!?!

Ok, so since you already know I tell you quite a lot of unflattering stuff about myself (though admittedly not everything- no need for you to feel superior), the following incident didn’t make me proud but did teach me an important lesson- so here it is: A few years ago, my sister got divorced (amicably– …

Minimalist vegan entertaining?

I already told you -about 90000000 times- what a stellar introvert I am. I love staying at home, don’t mind being alone, and to sum this up I get anxious when I need to entertain people at home. You might be asking yourself: “well then why should I listen to anything you have to say …

About that coconut oil.

So a few weeks ago I did my annual blood works ( please please please consider doing this. super informative and an important tool in the prevention of a vast variety of unwanted things!). I was unpleasantly surprised to find out my cholesterol levels were up this year: last year my LDL levels were 101 …

Sweet veggies??

#Before you start rolling your eyes and saying: “red peppers aren’t vegetables! they are fruits!” –I know -botanically, peppers, tomatoes, avocados, corn, okra, eggplants, zucchini, and string beans- are all fruits disguised as veggies. (I actually didn’t know that corn and eggplants were fruit. well-if we’re being honest, I didn’t know okra and avocados were …

Why I stopped baking vegan cakes.

“Stone soup” 5 ways!

“Stone Soup is a European folk story in which hungry strangers convince the people of a town to each share a small amount of their food in order to make a meal that everyone enjoys, and exists as a moral regarding the value of sharing. In varying traditions, the stone has been replaced with other common inedible objects, and therefore …

The sourdough starter monster.

Yes. I am well aware that “carbs are the enemy!” and all that. (Not my enemies- I learned to pick my battles- I have 3 kids, and if there’s one thing you learn in life with children- at all ages – is to preserve your energy for the right war. And don’t you worry- it …

Autumn. cinnamon.

It is supposedly autumn here. It’s just so hot it’s quite idiotic to be celebrating autumn. Because autumn-for me- is a celebration. I can’t stand the heat, the blinding sun, the fatigue and weariness that go hand in hand (in my case?) with this heat. Sure- the abundance of fruit and quick hot shower water …

Why I discontinued the raw journey.

First- I want to say that this is MY experience- and there is a good chance that you won’t/don’t feel the same -and that’s great- because if everybody thought and acted the same- I believe it would be quite boring. Then why write this in the first place? Because I think since I am a …
