Who forgot the red lentils??

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 …

Making veggie soup? double it!

Everybody knows the best trick for getting something done, is, well, to simply get it done. Works 99.9% of the time.

But-  I changed my mind lately- …

Yummy healthy post workout breakfast!!

Autumn is here, finally. Love this short, sweet season. I guess everybody does, I mean what’s not to like about fair weather, falling leaves, the promise of a cozy winter (things always look better when expecting them- also see- trips abroad: a dream before- many times a disaster during, a dream in retrospect. that’s the …
