Well who put peas in your guacamole??
In case you haven't seen, there's a new 5 minute internet controversy. Probably not as big of a deal as 'the dress'-but has generated enough attention that even President Obama has chimed in on it. Obama listens to NO peas Evidently, someone at the New York...

SPICES (part 2 of pantry, condiments, etc)
Variety they say, is the spice of life. When it comes to eating plant-based-or mostly plant based- spice and herbs are everything. Spice is what takes any food and turns it from dull to delicious in an instant-it can also ruin a meal-if you've ever had too ...

Hedonist turned vegetarian/vegan nutritionalist
Introduction
I went from smoking 2 packs a day, drinking beer with whiskey chasers and loving my steak rare to no smoking, rarely only red wine drinking total plant-based diet. My exercise used to consist of running for the bus because I was late for work, dancing in the clubs like a stripper and the occasional walk of shame. While others were jogging at 6am, I was driving, drinking massive amounts of coffee, smoking and passing them because I was headed home after being up all night, wondering how they could ever get up so early just to get up and run. I was the quintessential 'party girl'-well past my prime as a girl-but I envied that yoga doing jogging chai drinking quinoa eating clean living individual I'd pass in the dawning hours. Life responded by giving me a heart attack along with atrial fibrillation-that, after a breast cancer scare-and now I became the one jogging on the side of the road in the early a.m. 

Of course, this was ridiculously not easy for me and I fought it for a long time. In fact, I stayed drunk the first 3 months after my heart attack, eating Bacon Lettuce and Tomato pizzas and giving NO f*cks about it. Slowly though-my determination to live became as tough as the metal stents in my heart and here I am-finding the lifestyle changes surreal yet at the same time became so easy and the physical changes for the better began almost immediately

. As a mother of 2 young adult women, one in particular with a heavy interest in healthy eating on the cheap-I began this blog to help them learn how to eat right on a budget. Food truly is our medicine-but can also be our poison. My goal is to share my knowledge with them so they can avoid the pitfalls I had to go through myself. And share with friends that health eating can be delicious, it can be cheap, it doesn't have to be all about exotic, weird and unfamiliar ingredients, it can and IS a lot of fun and economical as well. Hence my blog. 

(Yes, I also have another blog which began about 6 years ago. As a party girl it was easy to end up dating psychos-and that is the blog I wrote to help people spot them better to avoid being tyrannized and emotional annhilated-if not straight up killed by them. Check it out!) 
Bragging rights
I survived a breast lumpectomy and a 'widow maker' heart attack with A-fib, all before the age of 50 and am turning it all around!
