27th Birthday Project

My first birthday in Japan, I learned about an incredible way to celebrate your birthday – The Birthday Project. You accomplish as many acts of kindness as as the number of years you are. While I have not yet achieved the level of grandiose  acts that I daydream of, I figured that no act of […]

Wrap Up & 30 Day Meditation Challenge

Well I completed the Live Below the Line Challenge – and it went as well I as had expected. My main source of food was the chicken broth I made from $1.00 chicken bones, and the only time I noticed a pinch was when I went to the vegetable market. I’m used to buying whatever […]

December Sanity Retreat

I’m sitting here listening to the Nutcracker Suite, since it is the start of December. And I can’t help think of “Trepak” as a metaphor for the holiday season – lots of fun but a total whirlwind, leaving you dizzy and exhausted at the end. I’m so thankful to be part of the December Sanity […]

I Love Links! Halloween Edition

I’m really into the holidays this year, and I’m not sure why. Maybe last year, my first year in Japan, I didn’t let myself get so excited for fear of becoming homesick. Also, I didn’t have a blog during Halloween of last year, and I wasn’t on Pinterest! So maybe the internet world is influencing […]

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: Inaugural Post!

I’ve been feeling a bit guilty because things have been light on the recipe posts of late. Mostly I’ve been channeling my free time into writing and developing new materials for the re-launch of Eat, Recycle, Repeat on Tuesday, September 18th! In the meantime, I’ve been eating pretty much the same thing, or making food […]
