One word comes to mind when I think about our modern society.
Being the frugal eco-warrior that I am, I then think this.
Essentially, electronic waste.
When more people own mobile phones than toilets and toothbrushes, you know we’re onto something as a society. That was enough to make my eyes pop. Gees, think about all that open waste without toilets - that’s a lot of holes being dug… or not. Read more ..
Me encanta la comida mexicana!
Mexican food is quite possibly one of my favourite cuisines out there. I salivate over the thought of guacamole. WHO DOESN’T LIKE GUACAMOLE? I put guacamole on everything and yes, most certainly on this Vegetarian Mexican Bean Dip. Read more ..
As an owner of a rather obnoxiously large television, it may come as a surprise to you that I don’t actually watch that much on it these days. In fact, most of the time, it just sits there on stand-by. BIG MISTAKE. Read more ..
Maybe it’s the German blood running through my veins, but I sure do love me some Sauerkraut! It’s become a staple in my kitchen with just a couple tablespoons a day working wonders for my health. The active enzymes help give my digestion an extra boost and the amplified vitamin C (and host of other healthful goodies!) helps nourish my immune system. Read more ..
As hip of a Gen-Yer who I’m suppose to represent, I must confess, I’m a bit behind the times when it comes to social media. Case in point. I only signed up for Instagram the other week! I know. Before you berate me for arriving (fashionably) late to the party, it was like a ‘coming of age’ moment that I had to think long and hard about. The little Miss Pansy (rational) voice inside my head who prefers to sip on earl grey tea, nibble on cucumber sandwiches all whilst contemplating her flower arrangement, was telling me, correction, ordering me, not to do it. Was I really about to sell my soul to the chains of yet another social media stream all over again? I mean, come on. Facebook already takes up half my waking hours. I’ve disowned my Pinterest wall on account of needing a replacement keyboard after I drooled too much over the old one. And my Twitter feed? Let’s just say, thank goodness for certain auto-plugins! Did I really need another ‘thing’ to distract me? Read more ..
Getinmabelly you little round, veggieful stuffed, nori rolls of goodness. Seriously, yum. I don’t know if I can technically call these sushi rolls, since they’re a bit of a twist on the age old rice and salmon varieties which is what I really define to be sushi, but each to their own. No, actually, not each to their own. I’m sorry (no I’m not), but chicken in nori rolls is NOT sushi. Just had to clear that one up thankyouverymuch. Read more ..
I’m a BIG believer in supporting the change makers of this world and also, personally living out the future that you want to see in the world. As in, living it out TODAY. As in NOW. As in, this very minute/second/millisecond/fleeting, momentary space in time. There’s no point in waiting for a ‘better’ tomorrow. Let’s face the law of logical sequencing in time; if you don’t make the changes today, there will be no results for you to see tomorrow. I think the odds are highly against us in experiencing a ‘Back to the Future‘ timewarp. So if you want to see a better tomorrow, you better start making a better today for yourself. Read more ..
