I started The Good Gut today, a book about human microbiota by a couple of pretty clued-up scientists doing research in the US. Absolutely fascinating. I can’t wait to get more into it, at the moment it’s all very background-describey. I wanted to get it after I heard them on a podcast recently, and they were making a lot of sense.
It may have been the same podcast, I can’t remember, but I also heard an interview with Dr Michael Greger, the dude behind nutritionfacts.org. He wrote a book called How Not to Die, which is a culmination of his years of wading through medical research and science findings about health and nutrition. I’ve cracked it but with everybody sick all this week I’ve had zero time to get stuck in. Will be reading more on my flights Tuesday and Wednesday.
So today I made Waka Flocka Flame’s vegan blueberry muffins but I changed them up a little bit. They are AWESOME. Yes, caps. I also whizzed up Deliciously Ella’s vegan brazil nut cheese, and have put some cashews on to soak so I can make these quinoa and spinach enchiladas tomorrow. We’ve some homemade enchilada sauce that needs using so I’m really looking forward to it. Oh BTW I used Ella’s recipe from her book, and it didn’t say to use any water, but I did (otherwise it would never go creamy), and that link to her site tells you to. Not sure I added a full 1/2 cup but I did add enough to make the mixture work.
Last week I went to Smith and Daughters with Chelsey from Like a Vegan and we ate so much we got the sweats. I tried the chicken and waffles and also ordered the cheesy fries because cheesy fries, and the creamy mushrooms because I consider a trip there without them wasted. I ended up eating the mushrooms the next day for lunch and they come up so well.
For my birthday last weekend I picked up a takeaway salad from Moroccan Deli-cacy (thumbs up) and among other things, a La Vera blue cheese and it nearly did me in. I swear to god I ate almost the whole thing on my own (what’s a party without making yourself sick on cheese), it was incredible. Later that night after a cocktail at George’s bar (the George Costanza-themed one), I figured I could handle a little something so we went to Pabu where I soothed myself with some epic veg sushi. Their lychee sparkling sake helped. The last time I went I got the agedashi tofu and the nasu dengaku and can give them the veggie mama seal of approval (official). I have to say, though, I was pretty disappointed to hear they’d canned the vegan menu, that was so helpful.
Empire Records soundtrack playlist is up, and I started listening to this episode of the Rich Roll podcast while I was going to sleep but it was so interesting I just lay awake, haha. John Joseph is crazy, his story is outrageous, and I love hearing his 80s New York hardcore accent, I could listen to him speak all day. Not gonna do an Ironman, tho.
The eBay winter jacket arrived! it’s soooo good. I’m so glad I got it. It’s not waterproof though so will still keep searching for my number-one pick, but I’m in no hurry. It will come to me when its good and ready.
Speaking of coming to me, these three also arrived in the mail today: AWESOME.
black and white striped jumper, khaki utility vest, and black and white striped skirt. Not gonna lie, I’ve also got my eye on this raglan tee, stripy swing dress, and black prairie lace dress. Perfect for autumn and into winter.
