I think that food is something we always remember and it is great for locking memories in, like grandmothers cinnamon rolls or moms pancakes. Every Sunday we had pancakes or crepes for dinner as kids. For me it is something very special and always reminds careless days, so as adult I try to make them on Sundays for breakfast. However, traditional pancakes are not very good in nutrition and for those weight conscious are not super healthy either.
Everything tastes like pumpkin now. And that is good, this is what Fall is all about. Nice cozy warming spicy and fragrant food. I always rock my pumpkin-lentil soup at this time of year, and recipe for it is coming very soon, however I felt adventurous another day and decided to try salad, including butternut squash I picked in my grandmothers garden.
I used to question vegan versions of non-vegan dishes in the past. I do not understand why these dishes should be made non-vegan style. I believe there are certain dishes that are the best in their original version, like shepherds pie or chili. However, I recently changed my opinion about burgers – I think vegan burger is a great way to introduce more proteins into my diet and also add another texture to a food. I’v tried several recipes and I have to admit I finally found few variations I likes, and, most importantly, they were good enough for my husband to like them too!
I finally started having proper breakfast everyday.
I always considered myself as healthy person – comparing with our friends, we live quite a healthy lifestyle – spending more time outside, no fast-food, no TV, walking dogs etc. However, when learning more and more about what does it mean to live healthy, I found out there is plenty of room to improve for us. So recently I started working out (since it is the first time after my surgery when I am capable of moving), looking for new healthier recipes, changing some old habits (ok, I mean white sugar-no white sugar anymore!).
