REBLOG: Why try veganism

Published October 22, 2018 by lynn k scott

Reblogged from Tailored By Megan Taylor.  She puts veganism in perspective and makes some great points without being a “pushy vegan”.

Tailored By Megan Taylor

It’s impossible to ignore the ever-growing popularity of veganism/a plant-based life style. Whether it’s something you’ve tried or are considering trying, there’s so much that we can learn and benefit from when taking on or even just trying veganism. Whether it’s educating yourself on the environmental benefits of veganism, or just creating a vegan version of your favourite (generally un-vegan) meal, there are loads of ways to encourage yourself to make a little change.

Whilst there are so many vegan activists who claim that everyone must become vegan overnight, and whilst to some extent I do think that plant-based living is the way forward, there is no denying that a little change can go a long way. Eating plant-based a couple of days each week for example, or switching to dairy free alternatives in your home,  if every person were to do just one of those things, the effects would…

REBLOG: I’m All Signed Out — That Anxious Mom

Published October 12, 2018 by lynn k scott

I had to share this blog from “That Anxious Mom”.  I laughed out loud reading this one and prompted me to write up a short blog.  Please, never stop sharing your daily lives.  ~Lynn

 

Kids are so weird. Baby Girl often changes her name depending on what she’s interested in and wants us to call her that. She has been Charlotte, Wilbur, Marshall, Lucy, Elastigirl…it does not stop. Sometimes she’ll keep the name for days or weeks. (Like the time she wanted to be called “Miguel” and insisted on […]

Reblog: Morning Video Series: Cilantro-Avocado Dressing — The Purple Almond

Published August 3, 2018 by lynn k scott

I adore avocados and eat them every week.  It’s not uncommon for me to go through 3-5 avocados in a week.  I put them on eggs, salads, make gluten-free brownies, top enchiladas, make guacamole with them…the list goes on and on.

There are so many recipes that utilize this awesome fruit.  Give it a go…you won’t be disappointed.

 

Each day this week, I’ll list 2 different health benefits of avocados AND, post a video, showcasing a different way to use this amazing plant.

Reblog: Cancer Conversation — Live Life with Laughter

Published June 22, 2018 by lynn k scott

Some sound advice.  Having to ask for help isn’t something we are taught to do; esp. if when you are fiercely independent.  Cancer changes all of that!

So when someone tells you they have cancer, how do you react? Are you shocked? What do you say? My brother-in-law shared an article which was written in the Globe today about this very topic. I had actually looked at similar articles earlier in January when I found out I had cancer because I […]

Reblog: Beetroot risotto

Published June 19, 2018 by lynn k scott

I have got to try this! LOVE beets and risotto.

luxlifefinn

This dish is one of my husband’s all time favourite dishes. I actually never used to like risotto, until I started making my own.

500g fresh, raw beetroots, peeled, trimmed and cut into wedges
splash of olive oil
knob of butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
250g risotto rice (I use Arborio)
150ml dry white wine (I use Sauvignon Blanc)
700ml hot vegetable stock (for this I mix Bouillon powder with water)
handful of grated parmesan cheese
dill
crème fraiche

1. Heat oven to 160°C (fan).

2. Put chopped beetroot in an oven proof dish. Sprinkle with olive oil, season and cook for about an hour, until soft.

3. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan, and cook the onion and garlic for about 3-5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Stir in the rice and white wine, and let bubble on medium heat until the wine has…

REBLOG: Vegan and Vegetarian – What’s the Difference? — Smart Diet

Published June 14, 2018 by lynn k scott

Having been a proud veg-head for over a decade, it’s astounding how many people don’t understand the difference between these two words.  I used to be a vegetarian and would get irritated when they removed eggs and cheese from my orders.  I would always have to explain the difference.  I would like to also note, that there is a HUGE honey debate in the vegan world.  I know quite a few vegans who do eat honey.   Some do, some don’t, but it’s not as clean-cut as stated below.  Other than that, there’s good information to share.

 

Many people get confused with the varying terms for dietary choices. “Vegetarian” is often used to denote any diet that does not include meat, but it is actually more complex than that. For example, is fish considered “meat”? What about dairy products? The term “vegan” is somewhat newer, and people often use it interchangeably with…
