Soundly Vegan – Testing plants on humans since 2009!
Soundly Vegan is a place where I am able to share my love of creating wholesome botanical food and, hopefully, to inspire others to join in the creative process of nourishing themselves. To my mind, somewhere along the way we lost the love of nourishment. We’re certainly able to feed ourselves, but that is not the same thing. We take time to do so many other things in our lives these days and yet take so little to meet one of our most vital needs. It is very important to me to show and/or remind people, if through a photograph alone, that food is more than what comes out of a box or a package. I want to awaken their senses and entice them into craving nutrient-dense foods that will nourish them well. I want people diving into bulk bins to investigate their contents and to put their noses deeply into spice jars and inhale stories from around the world. I want to expand people’s comfort zones and have them approach food with broader strokes that obliterate the lines defining the ordinary.
Naturally colorful food is healthy food.
Naturally colorful food is beautiful food.
Naturally colorful food is human food.
The exploration of new foods is exciting to me. I post recipes of dishes I create, that can, at times, incorporate an ingredient that isn’t commonplace or that will use an ingredient in an unexpected way. Experiencing different textures and flavors can revolutionize the way a person reacts to food and whether or not they will continue to include that food in their diet. The botanical world is brimming with amazing foods that put our Standard American Diet to shame. If what I do in my own tiny corner of the blogosphere inspires even one person to integrate more whole foods into their lives, then we have both become enriched.
