The Starch Solution: Slow Cooker Pizza Potatoes | The Vegan Training Table


I’m currently cooking these – they smell divine. I got my recipe directly from The Starch Solution and am really into the low fat, high starch vegan health program at this point in my life.


The Starch Solution: Slow Cooker Pizza Potatoes | The Vegan Training Table.



I’m still here, moving toward my goals, growing, changing, learning. Even when it feels like I’m at a standstill, or as though I’ve been going backwards in some of my lessons, I’m still heading down my right path. I’ve fallen in a few areas since my health crisis, and I’ve soared in many others.

I’m currently doing a ton of inward seeking and healing and I just don’t feel like I’m in a place where blogging about it is part of my journey.

Walk in Beauty.





Eastern and western mythological and religious traditions agree that a Word,a primal sound, is the origin of the creation.

The Bible says:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through Him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” – Bible, John 1:1

John is clearly referring to a single creativeWord, not to the Bible collectively.

When you find the Word, you have found God!

The gospel of John is only one example of the ancient and universal belief that God created the Universe by means of a vibratory emanation, a divine Word.

Quantum physics agrees that vibration (sound) is the essence of all forms in the creation. Sound…

Sweet Kimchi

Sweet Kimchi

This sounds delicious – I need to make more kraut and kimchi pretty soon, and I think I’ll try a spicy version of this.

Mama in the Kitchen

I have been wanting to make Kimchi for a while because of its nutritional benefits: rich in vitamin A, B1, B2, calcium, iron and lactic acid bacteria.  Kimchi is a Korean condiment that is basically fermented cabbage.  So, a few weeks ago, I finally remember to ask Song, a Korean lady at my favourite local health food store, how to make it.  But she introduced me to another shopper instead.

“He knows how to make Kimchi.  Chris, tell her how to make Kimchi,” Song says.

I smiled inside as this White Cooked Foodie (judging from his food at the cashier) explains in detail to me, an Asian Raw Foodie, how to make Kimchi.  Chris is very detailed in his instructions and I am inspired to finally make it.

I experiment a few times, until I get the hang of it.  With Chris’ help and one of my…

Shine a Light


“Not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, does the enlightened man dislike to wade into its waters.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

I’m just never going to be light, fluffy and superficial enough to be one of the “popular” people in any group I choose to participate in. I’ll make intense friendships with people whom I feel a genuine connectedness with, but talk of weather, sports, politics, or celebrity gossip just leave me bored and sort of uncomfortable.

This isn’t a flaw in my personality  – it’s a flaw in how humanity currently functions, and unfortunately it’s one of the aspects of my personality which makes me both unable and unwilling to “fit in”.  I’m not going to pretend that the dead elephant in the room is actually a sofa. I’m working on ways to improve this characteristic to make myself a little more comfortable, without abandoning this part of who I am, just like I’m working on improving and integrating other aspects of my personality which don’t quite function as effectively as I’d like them to.

Sometimes I wish I was different because being who I am is often painful, lonely and uncomfortable, but most of the time I know that part of my mission is to love humanity, and part of my mission is to shine a light on the darker aspects of it, love those aspects and help begin healing them.
