My new thing is making my own sprouts. I just got sick of paying almost three dollars for not so crispy ones at the store. I have so far made fenugreek and alfalfa sprouts. The verdict is in and it is that I wish I started this phase of my life years ago. Homemade sprouts ROCK! The fenugreek are really good for nursing mammas, they help produce more milk! The other thing I have been doing tons of is soaking my nuts before eating them. I have read that soaking nuts for 12 hours cuts the fat content in half while making them much easier to digest. The soaked nuts also make the vitamins and minerals more accessible to your body. Sounds good to me! Hope everyone out in the blog-o-sphere is enjoying the last fleeting days of summer!
I am a mom of a wonderful little four year old, an sweet baby, and wife to a thirty one year old. I am inspired by flavors and colors. I hope to change lives by infusing my cooking with love and special touches. We are also very into eating mostly vegan foods and playing with our doggie! I consider myself vegan-ish. I avoid animal products for a few reasons. I care about all beings, and wish for harmony for everyone and everything. I believe that it is more important to focus on what you eat instead of what you shouldn't eat. When it comes down to it, I feel better about myself and my family is thriving as vegan-ish.
