Happy Birthday!

I can’t believe it that is has been one year since I started my blog and my new way of eating – my new beginnings.

Macrobiotic Oatmeal

I’ve been trying macrobiotic recipes lately…Its really a wonderful way of eating….and inexpensive! Macrobiotics eat a lot of grains, beans and fresh vegetables. So, if your on a budget, look into macrobiotic, you’ll fell better and your wallet will too! I found this recipe in “Modern-Day Macrobiotics” by Simon G. Brown He was taught by Michio Kushi, the American father of macrobiotics. I really like this book, it was very easy to read, very concise and it gives you different...

Vegan Doughnuts….what!?!

Okay, even though I try to eat really healthy now….at one time I was a big junk food eater…(I still have my down falls every once in awhile….) One of my favorite Saturday/Sunday lounging in bed treats was doughnuts..Oh well…..that’s what I thought until now! I found this recipe in the “vegan yum yum” cookbook by Lauren Ulm And she’s right!
