Healthy, simple, and organic creations from a small kitchen in Oakland, California
Living in an urban environment with fast-paced lives, we sometimes think it’s inconvenient and too time consuming to buy fresh produce and cook meals from scratch. And, truthfully – it is more difficult for some of us to have access to fresh, pesticide-free food than for others. We still have a lot of work to do in fixing our food system and in addressing the inequalities, gaps (food deserts), and destructive environmental practices that seem like a profitable idea.
The purpose of this blog is to showcase some simple and healthy meals that can be created in small kitchens and don’t require elaborate equipment. I believe that the more we can cook, and the more we can teach others to cook (using whole foods – procured locally when possible), the better chance we have at living healthy and happy lives.
Am I vegan? Nope, but if you are – cool. If you’re not, that’s okay too. I’m a very conscious omnivore and my diet is mostly organic and very plant based. I don’t preach any one particular diet, but instead ascribe to the concept of bio individuality, meaning that no particular diet or lifestyle theme is right for everyone.
I hope you pick up a new recipe or two – and learn some interesting nutrition information as well!
