Wow, Rice! who knew, edible walls and all. thanks for sharing this
Don’t know if many of you ever stumbled upon an interesting fact on rice, but I watched the other day a whole documentary on it and was fascinated with the story. Rice has been known for 4500 years and it is the oldest known food that is still consumed today. All the way from China where it originated it spread over India and Sri Lanka. It didn’t take long until it traveled to Europe, Greece to be exact and Mediterranean. The reason behind it is that the rice grain can grow almost anywhere due to its versatility, it can even grow in the desert conditions. There are approximately 40000 varieties of rice and there are products like wine, vinegar, beer and sake made from it. The most interesting fact is that Chinese Ming dynasty even used rice in building of the Nanjing city walls, where it was giving stability and strength…

excellent! I had no idea there was a recipe APP! what a novel idea 🙂
Hey there! I’m back with a new life update and recipe. I have recently been influenced to try to eat less meat. At first I would joke about it and basically looked at you like “HELLO you’re crazy”, but I actually do think it’s a good idea. I don’t think cutting it out of your diet completely, but having meat once a week I feel like is better for you then consuming it all the time. And hey…if your not open to it that’s fine..I’m just cluing you in on what I decided to try. So thank goodness for the iPhone TASTY APP. I find amazing recipes right at my fingertips with grocery lists already displayed for what I have to get. They have vegetarian options always so that’s really nice. I recommend this app for anyone that likes to cook and try new things. I’ve used it only twice…

Love it, it is always so exciting to see persons making the transitions to a more, as you say, ‘sustainable’ diet.
About a month ago, I decided to take the jump from being an omnivore to being a herbivore. In other words, I’m vegetarian! I had been debating on switching for a while (since the New Year) and started during the first week of June. Today, I’m going to highlight some of the things I have learned during this month of being vegetarian to potentially help those who are thinking about changing to this lifestyle or are already a part of this lifestyle.
WHY I SWITCHED
The most asked question from people when they find out I’m vegetarian is simply, why?
Well, a lot of times throughout my normal day I would munch on foods and candies that contain empty/wasted calories. This means that these snacks would fill me up for a little while, but in the long run don’t help my energy/nutrient levels and would sometimes leave me even more…

Love this piece! So hard to find a good meal sometimes!
This really speaks to me, my experience was similar when I started out some 23 years ago..so true this last part about choosing complex carbohydrates as opposed to refined ones to snack on..ugh!
Nutrition and Sobriety
Healthy eating is a good goal for people in recovery. Us sober folks have beat up our bodies pretty bad. Good, balanced food gives the body energy and helps repair organ tissue and strengthens the immune system. Because of our past lifestyle, a well-balanced diet provides the nutritional building blocks we need to restore our “system”. It also helps the mood.
Small Changes can make a different in your recovery.
This all sounds very good, however, what kind of diet is best? Since I am not a medical expert, and since I am also sometimes close minded. I teamed up with a writer named Bo who will share her passion about vegetarianism. In the following paragraphs, she will explain the benefits of a plant-based diet. Hopefully, it will help you think differently about your food options. But, let’s face it, I am really talking about myself…
