Amidst this COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations for social distancing, social isolation, and quarantine, not to mention people hoarding many foods like bread, milk (which I don’t really get because they are perishable), and canned goods, it feels like the perfect time to get in touch with our grass roots.
Vegetarian, vegan, whole food plant based, keto, microbiom… there are a whole lot of food trend buzz words floating around right now. And even more conflicting “information”. It doesn’t help that the judgment from fundamentalists makes it disheartening for people to join any Facebook groups, just looking for guidance and inspiration.
I’ve been pondering changing my eating habits for a while, and for a myriad of reasons.

Cats be damned. Gus Gus eats my spring onions and makes himself sick, and nibbles on my pea shoots. Stitch eats my garlic. And has destroyed my spider plant. Not to mention my toddler topples everything over. It is a trial and error situation with my little indoor herb garden. My thumb is brown but someday it will be green-ish.
UPDATE: the next basil I started got dumped by the toddler. 3rd time’s a charm?
Lately I’ve been staying up way too late researching vinyl plank flooring options for our home. Our whole home. All 1520sf of it. With a very busy little one wanting to help with EVERYTHING, do we DIY or hire a pro?
