From the Garden

The various lettuces were picked from our garden yesterday.  There was also some cilantro in there, which came back from last year, and something we are confused about.  My husband says he planted spinach there, but it doesn’t look like spinach.  I think it might be chard.  I made it into a wrap adding someContinue reading “From the Garden”

Eating in Asheville

We love the flavor of Asheville, North Carolina, – mostly their mountains, shops and vegetarian/vegan restaurants.  It was our anniversary destination and on route to seeing our family, mainly our grandson. Upon arriving in Asheville, one of the first things we did after settling into our hotel was to go to Laughing Seed Cafe.  ItContinue reading “Eating in Asheville”

Hodgepodge

Today it must be yard work.  I woke up feeling yard work calling….exterior decorating.  While in meditation this morning the term interior decorating came to mind. The yard had become a jungle while we were gone.  So, the first task was to mow, after a day of rest from the trip.  I so love spendingContinue reading “Hodgepodge”

Yeah! It’s Friday

  Today an old memory hit me. I used to clean the house on Friday. It was date night, when Chris drove the 2 1/2 hour drive to see me. Our eleventh wedding anniversary is coming up. He just made reservations for Asheville, NC. We love Asheville. There is history, nice shops, great vegetarian restaurants,Continue reading “Yeah! It’s Friday”

Food

    Food – We all love it.  We are always trying to eat healthier.  I struggle, being lacto-vegetarian.  I have way too much dairy in my diet.  Then there is wheat.  Recently I went twenty-one days without wheat.  Perhaps that wasn’t long enough.  I saw no change in the way I felt.  For theContinue reading “Food”

Report Card on the Beginning of this Vedic New Year

Today is an auspicious day, as it marks the Vedic New Year.  According to the Sanskrit tradition this day is of cosmic importance and marks a new beginning.  So why do I feel so sluggish today?  Perhaps I started my own new year too early.  I began on March 1st slowly incorporating in better habits.Continue reading “Report Card on the Beginning of this Vedic New Year”

Vegan Fifteen Minute Woking

I do a lot of stir fry.  It’s simple and I love using my wok which I’ve probably had for thirty years.  It’s also something that is quick, and sometimes I wait until about fifteen minutes before my husband comes home to start dinner preparation.  I’m usually waiting until the last minute to start dinnerContinue reading “Vegan Fifteen Minute Woking”

Spring, A Time for Projects and Soup

This past weekend we had a touch of Spring.  Today winter is trying to edge its way back in, for I hope what is a short and final curtain call.  Speaking of curtain calls, we got to see the broadway musical, “Hair,” which came to the town where my husband works.  I was of theContinue reading “Spring, A Time for Projects and Soup”

Juice Fast?

Last week I attempted a juice fast.  I lasted three days.  I even had a friend who said she would go on it with me.  She is now on day 9! I did start feeling pretty good and could notice some differences such as a clearer complexion, but I caved.  I just think about foodContinue reading “Juice Fast?”
