I love getting sucked into new books. Digging into a great story that unfolds with each turn of those crisp and sharp pages has to be one of my favourite feelings. So I was somewhat caught off guard when I had those same feelings about… a cookbook.

I’ve considered it. The thoughts of no longer consuming meat, eggs, cheese have crossed my mind on more than one occasion. I’ve been thinking about going vegan but I can’t bring myself to take the leap -even if I do take baby steps every week like rarely cooking meat and cutting dairy out of our diet – including the kids’. So I decided to speak to a friend who has chosen this lifestyle path and satisfy my curiosity of all the questions I have regarding this healthier way of eating.
A few months ago I came across a blog post on Buddha Bowls. Have you heard of them? As far as I’m concerned this is exactly the type of excitement that healthy eating was missing. A big bowl packed with all sorts of colourful goodies, a custom-made dish with which you can let your imagination run wild.
We’re at that stage where James is on three meals a day. That means exactly what all mamas with young babies know it means: The pressure is on. Gone are the days when all I needed were my boobs and a nappy or two. Also it’s been over five years since I pureed a meal and while I never thought things could change that much in this department I am actually discovering all sorts of new information and food combinations.
