Sunday Confessions Last week, as you know, I hit a few bumps and potholes. What I’ve learned in doing something like this, is that despite having changed our minds, changing our habits is a bit trickier. There seems to be a bit of a mind/body communication delay :s The 4 Most Important Things I Learned […]

In my last post I confessed a sausage, well 2 sausages to be exact. And after an entire weekend away, a hectic Tuesday, 2 sick kids and a bout of writer’s block, I have a few more things to add to that list, and it may or may not include a meal from McDonald’s :s […]

I find that sausage happens to me unexpectedly and when I’m at my weakest. It can happen anytime of the day, from first thing in the morning to after a late night out at the club. I had three social gatherings in this last week, and I was offered sausage at each one. I said […]

I’ve been avoiding this topic simply because I don’t want to face it myself…because it is inconvenient and confronting. The topic of dairy. I’m not sure how many of you actually understand what it means to eat dairy. I didn’t for a long time. If you are a vegetarian who consumes dairy, it is almost […]

The title sounds as though I’m about to embark on a deep philosophical discussion on food, followed by a short discussion on “if a tree falls in the forest, does anybody hear it?” Now don’t be too disappointed, but no. What I’m referring to here, is the phrase “there’s┬ánothing to eeeeaaattt.” This sentence commonly walks […]

Today is Day 5 of operation “eat everything in my fridge, cupboards, and freezer” and operation “cut back on animal products, imported foods, and waste.” My fridge has now been reduced to a bowl of chick peas and a bowl of goji berries soaking on the shelf, a stray banana, avocado, red chilli, a bowl […]

“Why so quiet?” You wonder. No. I haven’t quit again. I’ve disappeared for the last week simply because I have been trying to organise the jumble of ideas flying through my head on what I should do with this blog. As you know from a previous post, I have a strong dislike for using one […]

Sorry folks, but today I am going to turn the volume down on the humour, and focus on something which I believe to be pertinent to the discussion on ethical eating.

A friend of mine posted this on my Facebook wall this morning. It made me laugh. I both loved it and hated it. I was like “bitch!” and “that’s bloody hilarious!” all at the same time. This incredibly intelligent friend of mine is clearly mocking me, but I completely understand why. Taking on the role […]
