Considering my background with Asian animals, it’s little wonder I have something of an obsession with discovering simple ways to protect their homes in the rainforests. But I’m not just concerned for orangutans, hornbills, elephant, and tigers. I worry about sloths, tapirs, toucans, and jaguars in South America as well. I worry about all the animals, as we are making the world increasingly smaller. Continue reading 100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 5: Healthy Cuppa
Already I am deviating from what I intended to discuss on this day. But as I was cooking lunch, and came across an interesting “dilemma”. I was making a favorite bulk recipe for Quinoa and Chicken Salad, and I was trying different flavors to see how I could change the recipe up a little. Continue reading 100 Days of EarthFit- Day 3: Playing with Flavors
I’m experiencing an influx of inspiration due to what I believe is the truly most wonderful time of the year. It’s not just pumpkin season, although pumpkins are certainly the kings of the gourds. It’s winter season, when many of our favorite fruits and vegetables have gone dormant and won’t sprout again until April or even later. So, having food that is as versatile as pumpkin available in the winter time is a blessing. Continue reading The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Part 2
I am very late on the writing of the post, but I think it’s better late than never. And we’re still in the midst of what I think is the most wonderful time of the year. However, I have to admit, that commercialization of this season is really starting to get to me, and I almost faltered, not doing ANY pumpkin flavored recipes until this past week. Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
I have been looking for a way to eat more animal friendly lately. I have a few issues with cheese, but for the most part, I actually really love it! Cottage cheese, cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella. But the more I learn about our food industry, particularly hear in the United States, the more I am realizing that I should say farewell. That is, until I borrowed a book from the library that may have actually changed the way I cook. And now I can have my cheese AND eat it too! Continue reading Have my Cheese and Eat it, too
WARNING!!!!!! INCREDIBLY OFFENSIVE AND EXPLICIT LANGUAGE AHEAD!
This should be the only time I use this type of language on here, but I truly cannot help it.
Truth be told, I myself actually have quite a colorful language in daily life. But I recognize it as unprofessional in many instances, and try to not let the cursing flood out of me when I first meet a new friend or colleague.
But this isn’t about me anyways. This is about the Thug Kitchen Cookbook, and their motto, or tagline, is actually “Eat like you give a f*ck”, so with that phrase in mind, I am pretty sure you are aware this post is going straight to hell in a hand-basket. Continue reading Thug Kitchen- Eat Like You Give a Frack!
In the Harry Potter series, Dumbledore explains to Harry that there comes a time when you must choose between what is right, and what is easy. For me, the choice is most difficult when I must either publicly take a stand or keep my convictions to myself. Even when I know I’m right, it’s not easy. Far too often I worry about embarrassing myself, or my friends and family, or getting my facts twisted around and not making my point clear. Sometimes when I am definitely in the minority, I fear maybe I’m NOT right. Continue reading Take a Stand: Bluefin Tuna Edition
Embarking on this journey to live fit and green has been empowering, but I am very grateful that I am not going at this on my own. I have found a plethora of books that have helped me make better consumer choices and create healthier, more environmental habits.
Recently, I have been reading an enjoyable book, “Do One Green Thing” by Mindy Pennybacker. I like it for its simplicity and positive focus on small changes one can make in their diet, homes, and travels to help the planet. Continue reading Do One Green Thing- Produce, Meat, Dairy, Poultry, and Eggs
October 1st is World Vegetarian Day. In the spirit of eating less meat, I decided to fix one of my favorite vegetarian dishes, tofu wontons. These are easy to fix, but I unfortunately don’t know how to make a SMALL batch, so it can be somewhat time consuming if you are making more than 10.
I came across this article on Huffington Post about GMOs, and it provided some VERY good information on the topic.
I’ll admit that I am not as informed about GMOs as I’d like to be, especially when I want to write about it and speak on the subject with conviction. Continue reading A Great Article About GMOs
