It will be a sorry day when I turn to my larder and discover that there is not a single tin of fish to be found therein. But I guess if we continue to empty the seas at the rate we are doing, it may happen. The thing is, the kind of small, oily fish that fit so obligingly in tins and jars are the very species that, if managed properly and fished responsibly, could continue to feed us sustainably well into the future. If however, we continue to vacuum them up by the millions of tonnes, and process more than half of them into animal feed and fertilisers, then they won't be around for long.
Last night I taught a healthy living class. And like always, as the guest were arriving, I was behind on everything… I had friends making Peanut Butter Pong Balls (made with almond butter instead), made my dad run to McDonalds to get some ‘samples’ (of no-no’s), and I was busy making sure things were set and ready to go…Oh and repeating in my mind the things I was going to say. I decided to do a display table of ingredients I love that I think everybody should include in their daily eating lifestyle. Each had a little note card with info about the ingredient.

I got to know Emma Reddington through her amazing site The Marion House Book . The first time I checked it out (on the advice of the always spot on Vitamin Daily girls) I realized that an hour had disappeared while I devoured all the envy-making house tours, design features and food posts. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Recently, I needed a vegetarian centerpiece for an Italian-themed meal (my own birthday dinner, as a matter of fact!). Beans might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, but these cannellini beans were special enough to impress all the meat lovers at the table. It all starts with the beans you use. I’m sure regular old store-bought cannellini beans would be fine here, but Rancho Gordo’s amazing Runner Cannellini beans took this dish to a higher level of deliciousness. They’re huge, with a mild, earthy flavor and soft but substantial texture.
It has been a very rainy day here in New Hampshire! I don’t think the sun peaked out all day. After work I just wasn’t in the mood to run and the husband got home from work early so I decided to skip the workout today to spend some time with him. I planned to go grocery shopping too but that didn’t happen either! A very productive day, I must say.
