1 // self care is often doing the ugliest thing that you have to do
It often means looking your failures and disappointments square in the eye and re-strategizing. It is not satiating your immediate desires. It is letting go. It is choosing new. It is disappointing some people. It is making sacrifices for others. It is living a way that other people won’t, so maybe you can live in a way that other people can’t.

4 // delicious vegetarian cooking
… like the recipes by Deborah Madison in her book entitled In my kitchen: A collection of new and favorite vegetarian recipes. The photography is stunning and every single recipe has me salivating.
I am particularly keen to try the savoy cabbage, leek, and mushroom on toast with horseradish cream for breakfast one morning and the green lentils with yoghurt, sorrel and parsley sauce for dinner.
