So, I’m in Tennessee and…

      4 Comments on So, I’m in Tennessee and…

I’m exhausted. Absolutely exhausted.

Peder and I are attending a vegan chef school and they’re literally running us ragged.

Have I mentioned I’m exhausted?

OK. Enough whining.

I mention this because I figured you’d think I’ve fallen off the face of the earth; no Writing Etc. this week, no blog updates, little Facebook activity.

I have to say, however, that this has been a very rewarding week. We’re creating heart healthy recipes that are literally curling my toes, they’re that good. It’s amazing what you can do with some flour, vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc. Crazy cool.

It’s also interesting living inside a new culture. To say I’ve endured a small case of culture shock would be an understatement. More on that later because it’s a blog post all its own.

One week down, one to go. I’ll hit the ground running when I’m back in Minnesota and am able to think about more than cooking, baking, and mixing.

Talk later!

    Hi, Beth:
    I am curious. Is the so-called “Caveman Diet”? My doctor put me on this a few weeks ago but he called it the “anti-inflamatory diet”. My cholesterol went from 26o to 210. I have so much more energy but can’t find recipes I like. Hope you write more on this subject.

      Hi Kaphie,

      I haven’t heard of the Caveman Diet. Hmmm…

      Congrats on your cholesterol, though. That’s fantastic. Keep up the good work.

      Have a fab day,

  • HI Beth,

    Wow, vegan chef school….how cool! I’m envious.

    I hope you’ll post some recipes! A lot of people think vegan food is dull or tasteless, or for example, that you need to use chicken broth in soup to give it flavor. NOT! Yes, you have to use more vegetables to impart more flavor, but it can be mind-blowingly delicious.

    Glad to hear you and your husband both are healthier as a result. Keep up the great work!

      Hey Alina,

      I’m soooo impressed! What great ideas. Great blog. I’ll definitely post recipes, in fact I already have at CalorieDensitySecrets.com. We’ll have to exchange links. πŸ™‚

      I’m continually amazed at how good our food is. It’s far more varied than when were were “omnivores.” I love our lifestyle and am excited to see where this new adventure (chef classes) leads.

      I hope you have a great weekend,
