I love to eat, and I love to cook. However, being a twenty-something in Seattle with a part-time job and the smallest kitchen ever made imposes some restrictions. For instance, I can’t spend a thousand dollars a week at Whole Foods. I can’t labor over mise en place for an hour every evening. I have about 25 minutes to eat a lunch that I consider “fancy” if I put it in the microwave rather than eating it cold. Additionally, I’m smart. I know that if we don’t live like there are other countries in the world, without excess and waste, we won’t have a world for much longer. And, if I don’t eat more plants than animals, I won’t be around for very long either. Being that I also love this world and living in it, it stands to reason that my eating and cooking coincide with my goals of not annihilating our planet or myself prematurely. Hence, a blog in which I encourage you to shop cheaply and sustainably, spend time in your kitchen and with your loved ones, and eat food that is good for everyone and everything we cherish.
