For some reason, spring feels to me like a better time for fresh starts than does the new year. Perhaps it's the sudden boost of energy I get from more sun and flowers - who knows?!
I just spent a fun evening with my friend who's training to be a nutritionist and we talked all about balanced diets. For me, this is a constant work in progress, especially as I'm learning to be a healthier vegetarian. I really enjoy learning how to cook interesting foods with useful properties.
Apparently rice and beans are not only tasty, but a perfect nutritional combination. And darn cute:
Another favorite of mine is tea. For those of you who know me well, you know that tea + me go everywhere together. OK, I'm English, but just look at all the weird and wonderful brews out there!
So this spring, I vow to eat better and explore more. What resources do you use for cooking and learning about foods? Favorite superfoods? Any hints and recipes gratefully appreciated!
