Original: To share my recipes, pictures, and insights, providing those living with food allergies and choosing vegetarianism an alternative perspective. I may later expand this vision. Post Frequency: About once a week.
December 2012: I’m in the process of coming up with a statement to reflect the recent additions to the blog. While I still mostly focus on food, I now occasionally sprinkle in other topics of interest. I am also posting more frequently, but not on any specific schedule at this time.
I have been a vegetarian for over a decade, and have negotiated food allergies my entire life. Most of my allergies are to foods typical of a vegetarian diet, such as soy and nuts. I am still on a journey to discover nutritional balance, so I make no claims there. But as far as taste goes, I have found these negotiations inspire my creativity in a way that an open diet could never do. For years, I have answered the question: “Well, what do you eat?”. Sometimes it’s well-intentioned, sometimes not. I have experienced the gamut of responses to my diet- from accepting the challenge, to mild curiosity, to outright hostility. But at the end of the day, learning to prepare enjoyable meals for myself has brought me joy in a way I never thought possible. I hope to share my joy with you through this blog.
I am neither chef nor nutritionist, and make no claims at expertise in the kitchen. I share for the enjoyment it brings me, and nothing more.
