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 …

Instead of Botox?(part 1).

So I turned 53 this week, and I thought this is a great time to share my encounter with the ultimate fountain of youth- Botox . As usual- I remind that I am no dermatologist or health instructor or registered dietitian or registered anything- except an early retired lawyer who happens to believe in doing …

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 …

Can one cleaning detergent do everything???

Well- almost everything. I am talking about the basic -sits in every house -dish soap. I will address the ecological point of view in a moment- because it is the one and only possible downside in this win-win-win situation, and I have an unconventional way of looking at it- so if you are an avid …

The tahini trick .

Tahini is the ultimate vegan staple. Why? because it is super nutritious, wholesome, a great source of copper (essential for iron absorption) and fiber (2 grams in 1 tbsp) and protein too (3 grams in 1 tbsp!), tasty and versatile: tahini can go savory and go sweet just as well. *unless you are allergic to …

Never get bored with salads!

There’s this stigma running around for thousands of years, tying between salads and dieting women. “oh me? I’ll have the salad!” (then most movies-books- TV series depict said woman looking sadly at her plate and -if given the opportunity- helping herself to her companion’s plate.) We all understand the “subtle ” subtext: Salad is not …

The cheapest, greenest, most effective ant deterrent ever!

There’s a possibility I have invented this hack. I mean- I haven’t heard or read about this hack anywhere, and I am deliberately not checking online, fearing I am delusional and many people have been using this hack for ages. Anyway- You have nothing to lose by reading this post- except- of course your valuable …

The lessons I learned from a cat…

All my life, I avoided cats. Simply had nothing to do with them. I was sure I was a dog person- and I was also sure that this is an either/ or situation. Cats do have that distancing spoiled self sureness about them- they always look as if they are doing you a favor by …
