Grapes aaaalllll day these days. #fallfruits
Sunshine Coast BC Canada? Most ppl think I’m from the Australian Sunshine Coast… So I gotta ask.
I know how frustrating that can be!! But it happens to everyone… i suggest row covers (I posted a photo just now, should be on the post below).
Row covers!! But this photo is a little wrong… you wanna set them up as soon as the seeds are in the ground (usually). These work especially well to keep white moths and flea beetles off brassicas (kale, collards, cauliflower, broccoli, etc) :). FYI the white mesh cover doesn’t trap heat in, and it can be watered through… so it only has to be removed when harvesting.
I have so many friends who call themselves “environmentalists” but they still support animal agriculture by eating meat and dairy… either they’re #clueless or maybe they just don’t want to believe what they’re doing is contradictory to what they claim their beliefs are. I hear the “oh but not the meat I buy” argument waaaay to often. Especially in the small town I live in ppl think somehow the meat & dairy sold here must be better (happy animals, quick easy slaughters, right?)… sorry friends, it’s not.
They protest logging and oil tankers and then go eat a burger and it’s ridiculous. #hypocrites
Hmmmm I really don’t know who to recommend. Maybe because I don’t think diets are healthy or smart or sustainable. Whereas a healthy diet that you adopt and enjoy for life, one that’s not calorie or taste restrictive, that’s a good thing. (Sorry I know that was an annoying answer).
So soooo worth it! Congratulations :). Make sure the fish you’re eating isn’t farmed (bad for you, the fish populations, & the environment). Best of luck!!
I used to, like when I started to change my diet and eat healthier… I don’t track calories anymore, but there is a scale in my bathroom and I weigh myself lots. Probs not a great thing to do but its a habit I guess from my eating disorder past.
This salad was so good. Perfect for a rainy autumn evening. 1 large head of lettuce, handful of baby kale (“red russian” variety is my fave), a few big yellow and pink swiss chard leaves, handful cilantro, 1/2 avocado, 1 medium zucchini, bunch of tomatoes (various types), 2 figs, lots of pomegranate seeds, lots of scallions, & 1.5 cups warm quinoa (I used red & white). Decorated with some edible flowers, nasturtiums and calendula petals, and then dressed with a simple tahini dressing: 1.5 tbsp tahini, 1/2 lemon juiced, 2-3 tbsp water mixed together with a spoon. 🍁 Happy thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!
I love using collard leaves to create a burrito style wrap! Tastier & healthier for sure. I had to use a few leaves to create the wrap tonight since the leaves I have are small, but if you can find big enough ones all you need is one! Filled with quinoa, spinach, tomatoes, chioggia beets, avocado, thinly sliced leeks, cilantro, & yellow zucchini. That’s it! So good.
Tonight I made @rawvana’s sweet thai “rice” and it was seriously so good! Cauliflower was used to create the “rice”, mixed with pineapples, red bell pepper, cilantro, scallions, celery & a simple mango-lime-tamarind dressing. Full recipe on her YouTube account!
Lol @ the farmer (who happens to be my neighbour, Heinz) at the farmers market today who had some RUM on his table. Not sure why. Cheers?
Vegan passionfruit “cheesecake”
The recipe is now available on the original photo a few posts down :). I had forgotten to post the recipe here on tumblr when I shared the photo via instagram.
Nice lil pumpkin, butternut squash, & spaghetti squash harvest this year. 🌿 #organicgarden #homegrown (at Sunshine Coast, BC)
