I love food. It’s great. As a vegetarian I am always looking for new recipes to try and food to indulge. Actually looking at this plate, it does look like a lot of food. But when I know that I’m going to have a long day, I need food to take me as far as it can because I can’t always afford take-out (nor do I enjoy it as much these days.)

The best part about being a vegetarian is the creation of all the things I can create because face it, I’ve already spent years cooking food that was–well different. As a small town girl, I grew up with recipes that you probably have never heard of. You got to be open to taste if you were taste any of those recipes!

But I love learning at this age! Most of what I learn about is food and the importance of what is good for what. I’m not planning on starting a blog all about food or anything like that. I just thought I’d post a few pics showing how I’ve have changed my diet these last few years.

I’ve enjoyed this journey into health. I feel better, my skin seems to think so to! I mean I’m not getting any younger, I don’t need to convince myself of this. And I’m lucky because of the choices I made, my daughter and her soon to be husband have also become vegetarian. That’s pretty awesome!


I believe in today’s world we are pushed more than ever to consume products that are not real food, they are just products. But on the opposite side I am happy to see that more and more people are acknowledging that as a nation/world we need to start looking at health more. People are dying of cancer at a scary rate. I know, I have lost family and community members to cancer. It’s sad and heartbreaking.

Education is vital to every human on the planet as to why we need to consider food as a factor to how we live. Even when we think of things such as greenhouses gases that is literally killing our environment, we need to start thinking responsibly. We need to know that we can change the world if we want to. Right now. All we have to do is decide.

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
