Welcome Summer – I have big plans for our time together.
The past few weeks have been pretty packed for me. On Sunday I taught a fun classes on Getting more Greens on behalf of the Toronto Vegetarian Association.
It was hosted by Carol at Belmonte Raw (my favourite food purveyor in the city). It was a wonderful night. I went home all a glow with enthusiasm – and also ecstatic that it marked my last workshop until the Fall.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE teaching classes on vegan cuisine. In fact, I hope one day it will be my full-time job. But, right now it isn’t and sometimes it is a bit of a challenge to find a balance between my passions and my commitments.
Instead of carting around ingredients and aprons this summer I plan to:
1. Finish recipe testing for Allyson‘s upcoming book
2. Finish creating a beautiful eBook with Nicole
3. Improve my 10km time from the Spring.
4. Complete my kickboxing program
5. Invest time in crafting delicious sweets for the Treat of the Month Club
Beyond the tasks I hope to complete, I’m looking forward to a season full of:
That’s it… It is going to be glorious
To help you all welcome the Summer season and to get you excited about spending early mornings strolling farmer markets – I have a great recipe from my Getting More Greens class to share.
Kale Granola! It is a delicious options for breakfast or an afternoon snack that I discovered on my recent trip to New York. Thanks to the recommendations from my friends JL and Kate I stopped by Life Thyme Market to try out their leafy green delicacy. I fell instantly in love and set to recreating the recipe as soon as I took that last bite. Luckily for my bank account and vacation days it was a success!
Happy Solstice everyone.
