The best birthday present ever!

So, last week I celebrated 52 , and I got the perfect gift from my kids. I am not just saying this because they are my kids. Or because the eldest is a devoted subscriber and frequently comments on my content.(in private messages though. I guess its uncool to publicly comment on your mother’s blog).  […]

Post workout Ice cream?? totally!

(Not a dietitian, not a health instructor, retired lawyer+health enthusiast here, I do my research before anything I do, because I have a lot of free time , and in my opinion this is the best way to use it). Want to pack 40 grams of protein in one yummy meal? Have a sweet tooth […]

My 7th veganniversary: am I laying on a bed of roses??

People make life-changing decisions all the time. I’ve read “inspirational quotes” that are adamant that “the hardest part concerning these decisions is getting to the point of making them”-as in being aware of the fact that change is needed and what form that change will take.  Well.

Are potatoes good for you??? +great baked potatoes tip!

Who doesn’t like potatoes?? they can be boiled, pureed, baked, fried, french fried, cut into Mc Donald’s chips, and more. And yet- I kind of stopped buying and making them, thinking they are basically starchy-no fiber- high in carbohydrates only- no vitamins food. But then… My son got me researching protein-packed food, so I learned […]

Multi-purpose shoes!(and vegan too!-no affiliated links or ads or whatevers)

Minimizing my wardrobe and travel habits meant cutting down drastically on my shoe collecting habit. Instead of coveting every smart-looking shoe I laid my eyes on- I began looking for a combination of fashionable -comfortable- traveling-walking-hiking -easy to clean -quick drying-not super expensive shoes. I did find a pair -and I am here to let […]

The possible hidden feminist story behind Cinderella -and why I stopped wearing high heels.

Cinderella is not considered to be a feminist story- au contraire- some people might even say that it has a very conservative narrative: poor girl being subjected to hard unjust house labor by her evil step mother, who has nothing on her little mind except parties and catching noble husbands for her daughters. the miserable […]
