October Omnium-Gatherum

Unfortunately my October is ending with a big messy storm instead of being able to dance around the house in anticipation of the Virtual Vegan Potluck coming up November 1st…………..instead my weekend is being sideswiped by SANDY!

The hurricane is really cramping our style here but hopefully we can keep power and not lose any trees….

Saw this on line last week and thought it was worth sharing:


I’ve been delving into more information on Anti-inflammatory diets and the effect they can have on preventing pain.

For more information, there’s a wonderful film available here: http://www.forksoverknives.com/plant-based-diet-has-me-winning-my-long-hard-battle-with-ulcerative-colitis/

And be sure and read Somer’s real life experiences with life changing diets at Vedged Out

Somer may have saved her own life by changing what she feeds her body.  A wonderful story you can’t miss:

Somer’s before and after pics.  Check out her story at Forks Over Knives 

My husband journeyed down to Texas this month for a few days and said there were more

Road Runners than Texans every where he went.

They don’t quite look like the cartoon version we all grew up watching do they?

MMMbbppp MMMbbpp.

I had to pick up one of these absolutely gorgeous Olive Wood boards from West Elm after seeing them on Averie Cooks.

The board was a great base for my Banana Graham Cracker Squares


Back now to hurricane prep.  But remember to Vote next week.  To many people gave their lives just so you can.


Next post……….will be the awesome chain of recipes courteous of the Virtual Vegan Potluck on Thursday morning, November 1st at 12:01 am.  Can’t wait, and I just hope to have electricity to cook my entry for the event.  Be sure to check back for all the great sites involved in the event and their recipes!

      Thanks so much Ann! We’ll be much better off in DC than those north of us. I have my posting done now and scheduled for Thursday A.M. so if we lose power it will still post. We’re ready for everything now 🙂

      Thanks for your thoughts!

      Thanks so much Somer. We got through with no damage here in DC, just tons of supplies to put away which is a good thing. Looks like NJ got hit the worst by far.
      I thrive on information promoting good nutrition so your story and the film have really rocked my world this week. I started with going non-dairy 3 years ago which virtually cured my aches and pains and I’ve been grabbing every bit of info I can on how food effects our bodies ever since. So glad I’ve found your site and can share in the fun! Thanks for your comments and take care 🙂

        Wow, so are you fully vegan now? And is this the first you’ve seen of Forks Over Knives? So incredible the power of the right good food!

        Glad you weathered the storm ok. I need to check out the news on New Jersey, I’ve heard bits and pieces but want the full scoop. So sad!
