When I went from being busy on the road to working quietly from home, cooking regularly (and better) was something i was looking forward to and it’s now a light and sweet part of life ever since. But at first, I had no clue where to start or what kinds of dishes I could rotate for a bit until i found new ones to add to my repertoire.

Every meal doesn’t have to involve a big production to be healthy, filling and enjoyable.

I grew up eating and now making meals from scratch with real ingredients. In different seasons, i’ve eaten strictly ital/vegan for about 5 years, veg & fish only and the opposite for a shorter stint so not here to advise on what’s best for you. Nowadays, it’s healthy, light yet filling vegetarian food. Light loving reminder (to me too): what comes out of our mouth matters more than what goes in. Words are meals too.

moringa leaf, spinach, peanut vanilla with granola, apple, hibiscus flower, moringa flower

Onion, garlic and at least a sprinkle of curry simmering in the oil of your choice start off any dish good.
