Thrive Forward

I was checking Twitter this morning and came across a promising website Thrive Forward. It will officially begin operating in January 2013 (54 days from today) , although if you sign up now you will get a spiffy e-book: Thrive Forward 101. It’s 21 pages of a preview of a book I am certain will be coming out soon. If you have been a Vegan for a while you may already be familiar with the information, although it is easy to read and a good reminder that if you are dedicated to eating a plant-based diet, then the base should be plant-based.

I can’t fully recommend this site yet, although I signed up and will keep reporting. What do you have to lose? weight, your health…. Skip on over, sign up and download your preview e-book.


Memorial Day Weekend in the US

The highways are crowded and the summer tourist season begins!! Memorial Day is spend very unique to each:  camping, hiking, enjoying the beach and/or the mountains, honoring military veterans and loved ones who have passed on, barbecuing, family get togethers, music festivals or staycations to name a few off the top of my head. No matter the event, everyone plans are often around travel and food.

‘ssI haven’t published my final pictures of Jim Lahey’s pizzas,  actually once I create and bake the pizza’s they became my pizzas. I used his recipe and method, so technically choose to call them his pizzas. The book My Pizza is written by Jim Lahey & Rick Faste, so need to quit saying that it is just Jim Lahey’s pizza.

Now I have to find my pictures and upload.

Also, watch for my Memorial Day Menu!


Jim Lahey’s Pizza Crust

I know I said that I would talk about the Kickstart and I will.

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I love pizza. I grew up with lots of allergies and often pizza was a safe food – fully cooked and yummy. Well, also allergic to dairy, so the pizza wasn’t much of a friend, but learned to love it without the dairy. I’ve been waiting for Jim Lahey’s My Pizza cookbook for a while and was delighted to purchase on my iPad. So, have salivated over the pictures (the pizza not the meat) and imagined all the Vegan alternative I could create, but avoiding the crust recipe. Feared it was loaded with milk and olive oil – why did I wait??? No dairy – No oil!! Vegan & Delightful!

In the Lahey tradition the recipe calls for mixing the ingredients, covering and waiting for atleast 18 hours. Easy

I have a batch mixed and cultivating on my counter.
