Living in New England can really be marvelous but lately… Let’s just say a lot of us have been on alert, what with all this snow threatening to fall our way. Honestly, I have been thinking of moving to a much warmer climate, I just haven’t figured out where yet. Anyway, I figured that if I was going to be snowed in, at least I’d bake some chocolate chip cookies to console myself a bit.
Do you ever find yourself wondering in what ways you can be more resourceful? For example, the other day I made this delicious carrot, apple, and ginger juice blend that was simply delicious. I did not want to throw the leftover pulp into the compost as I normally would, so I decided to give this recipe from Joy the Baker a try. I’m not typically big on soups but something about this brisk country air makes me crave more hearty foods and with the help of a vitamix, soup making is quite easy and painless. Buen Provecho!
After my meditation retreat, I spent a few days in Montreal – a city I had heard so much about but had never been to previously. Usually when I travel, I plan in painstaking detail while still maintaining room for spontaneity. This time around, I just decided to do whatever felt right as each day presented itself. Let’s just say, I ate my way through the city. Montreal has an amazing selection of gluten free places and products! I was only disappointed in that I did not have time to explore them all. Here are some of my favorite places and recommendations. Bon Appetit!
