Lolo, the blogger who writes VeganYumYum, was on the Martha Stewart Show today.
I am not really a fan of Martha Stewart, but I do love to read this blog! It’s inspiring and helpful to me as I try to come up with yummy, attractive things to feed my family.Â It was great to see and hear one of my favorite cooks! Â And no, she wasn’t using yarn and needles — exactly.
If you didn’t get to see the show in time, don’t despair, a clip of Lolo’s TV debut is at her site: here.
Now, in case you didn’t know, our family is not vegan.Â Not even vegetarian.Â We have a child who didn’t do well on a strictly animal-free diet. And, to be honest, the grandparents were not helpful when the children were little, being only too willing to take them to McD’s and other meat-and-grease-laden purveyors of comestables.Â But, since he really does a lot better with meat in his life, we went ahead and made the adjustment for him.
But for me, I really do best on a vegan diet — or if I really want to break my rule, a few eggs or seafood.
Today, I am home feeling yucky.Â A combination of things, I am sure, but I am also sure that it is partly my diet lately. Too many things with meat, too much wheat (not a real allergy, more my body prefers other grains) and sugar, too few good veggies.
So, I have refocused, drinking LOTS of water, and eating one banana and a mug of warm marmite broth. I also admit to a candy cane — the peppermint flavor really helped my tummy calm down. Trying to clear out my system a little without too much movement (a nasty multi-day headache that gets worse with motion) or too much prep time.
And while I recuperate, I am spending a little bit of time reading the food blogs I enjoy, considering my next culinary adventure!
