A couple of months ago I gave myself the green card to eat meat without a guilty conscience, as long as I didn’t overdo it and remained responsible. You see, the problem that occurs with anyone who thinks about something too much…well they tend to overdo it a bit, and in the wrong direction. In theory, […]

So that was a little bit of an extended vacation from my blog. I have been very busy during this time…thinking, eating, stuffing up…you know, the usual  My biggest inspiration lately has been my son’s intense and long-lasting fascination with dinosaurs. What does this have to do with eating and ethics? Well you’ll just have to […]

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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]
