For the love of vegetables!

The electric inter web has allowed for an uptake (and steady increase) of people standing up for the rights of the voiceless. i.e. dogs, whales, gorillas ...Britney Spears. Thing is, I've not heard a single soul stand up and represent one other important, voiceless player so I'm here to raise the issue - inhumane treatment of vegetables.

You heard right.

Forget Britney Spears, I care more about Broccoli Spears. Vegetables have feelings too!

So rather than chop the carrots (Ouch!), slice the cucumber (Eek!) or crush the garlic (Help!) try perfecting the art of Julienne, Chiffonnade, Jardinière, Brunoise, Macedoine and Paysanne. Oui! They are indeed actual (and tres magnifique!) techniques that will no doubt impress your friends AND show kindness to the vege-tables.

Meanwhile, the renewed focus on this simple and repetitive task allows the mind to rest, new energy to flow and ideas to emerge.

So let’s hear it for our leafy friends and get on board the ‘Be Humane to Veges’ campaign.

I smell a revolution people. Viva la vegetable!

One bad ass mamma you best respect!

On my recent visit to NYC I experienced Hurricane Sandy's (a real holiday treat) fury.

Although i'm blissfully aware (and in awe) of her almighty and powerful presence, Sandy was a stern reminder that there ain't no disrespecting the greatest Mamma of them all - Mother Nature. She dazzles us with her spectacular lightness in one moment, then humbles us with fierce darkness the next.

This Mamma so fat - she influences the tides!  

We get it girl - you're the boss. Respect. 
 
Meantime, as for Miss Sandy dropping in on my whirlwind (pun intended) tour of NYC I refer to Grease - the movie, not the television adaptation for Glee...

"Sandy, baby, I sit and wonder - why-e-eye-eye...
Oh why, you dropped in on me...Sandy baby."



Loving you, loving me...TLT x

Wise people say...



Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
