Yoga Teacher Training: Week 2

Transitioning away from the fall produce of apples, sweet potatoes, and squash; I can see just over the horizon that Spring is arriving! Biddi and I saw a Robin two weeks ago, but none since then. She has a few Little Golden Books that mention Spring and in The Two Little Gardeners, they mention the... Continue Reading →

Another Day, Another Mass Shooting

I usually try to keep my blog posts positive and independent of the travesties and tragedies happening in our political, social, judicial systems, and all of our other systems. Today I can't post about sewing projects, the daily post, or plant-based recipes because I can't compartmentalize the terrible situation at Douglas High School yesterday. I... Continue Reading →

That cool girl Jeans Look

So I am not big into denim anymore. I used to be when I worked in a department store, and had an employee discount on all the super-high end brands. I swear the only reason anyone works in retail is because of the discount! These days, I tend to wear mom jeans and Toms shoes instead of... Continue Reading →

Coconut Cream of Butternut Squash Soup

I loved this recipe! After years of thinking if something homemade was healthy I am happy to be cooking plant-based these days. With the flavorful curry and coconut, it is way more creative and has more depth than any traditional "cream of.." soup I have made. I have changed the original recipe, but just based...

Cream of Kale Soup

However, making this recipe did bring back memories: it reminded me of cooking canned cream of broccoli soup in college! Unlike canned soup, this recipe has just 7 ingredients(that are real...

Chili Sin Carne

I love this time of year and making warm soups! I haven't had much experience making completely vegan soups, however, because I have always made a lot of "cream of..." style soups. So far this fall, I have made Chili, Panang Curry with Tofu and Thai Coconut Curry Butternut Squash soup*.     This Chili is... Continue Reading →

Buddha Bowl Cubano

It has been so long since I have posted! Another backlog of delicious vegan food captured in mediocre photos. We haven't been to the farmer's market in a while--it heads indoors and is only 2 times a month now. But on our last trip, I got some romanesco broccoli. I love the fractal nature of...

80 Healthiest Foods

In the Spring, I bought a special issue of Time magazine entitled the 100 Healthiest Foods. There is more meat than I would consider "healthy," including chicken, pork, turkey, halibut, scallops, cod, oysters, "grass-fed" hamburger and steak; salmon and tuna are on the list, but I would consider letting those slide. Other non-plant or processed... Continue Reading →
