Wow!!!! I will try as soon as my exams finish and I'll have more time!!! My favourite healthy things are : porridge in the morning,not using sugar at all but stevia -not Dietor!not liquid!- and I am very lucky because my dad grows our own animals,so that I am sure I am eating anything transformed,or grown with who-knows-what (excluding the fish unluckily but...we can't also have our own lake or sea to fish xD) and also he cultivates our own vegetables,of every possible kind,very few are excluded. I will use them for sure to prepare these recipes ;)

The "chicken (chickpea) nuggets sounded good, but too many ingredients for the ordinary kitchen.

I find it hilarious how nowadays healthy equals vegan, in the opinion of the vegan sect itself.

Cannot stop catalogs, I tried- recycle them.

This sounds just a bit too new agey for me, sorry.

All good. Thank you.
