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. I can tell you that in my experience, […]

DIY Chickpea flour: is it worth the hassle?

Who’s afraid of baking bread?

So, I began to make a list of the things I love doing. The simplest method I use to decide whether I like doing something is the “time flies” (AKA -“I’m in the zone”) test. In my opinion, anything you do and get so immersed in that you lose track of time is something you […]

I do hope you remember I am no RD or Dr or any other (non) possible combinations of these 2 letters.early retired health enthusiast.as I always say- use your brain, it was put there […]

Beet it!

This winter vegetable is a true wonder. Full of nutrients, easy on the calories, naturally sweet, and that color, psychedelic. The thing is, at least in our house, beets are one of those veggies that we all know that are great for us, but many ( many) times, we (ok.I) just get too lazy to […]

Because I am a type-A stressed take no nonsense from myself kind of person, it had to be executed right away, preferably before 31/12/19 because, well, just because. I have an exhausting need to be different. that’s […]

Those calories don’t count (or do they??)

If there is justice in this world, then some calories really shouldn’t count. If they have to count, well then they should be on a big, huge, discount. I am talking about  food preparation -tasting calories: If you are frugal, (I hope you are, this is definitely the place for you if you are, or […]
