Raspberries and Possibilities




Happy Vegan Mofo sweet souls!

I feel kind of excited and overwhelmed and giddy all at the same time. I knew this was coming and yet still I managed to procrastinate all of the preparation until here I am later at night on Day One still wondering what to post and what potential theme I could choose. I want to do everything! I want to see what's in my fridge and at the back of my cupboard. I want to try new recipes. I want to discover new fruits and vegetables. I want to make beautiful, nourishing and yummy foods that make me feel happy and grateful and full of joy.


Raspberries and Iced White Tea with raspberry

If I had to pick one food that brings me the most joy it would be raspberries. Raspberries are my ultimate spirit food. I feel like a beautiful, barefoot goddess when I eat them. They remind me of my childhood, warm summer weather and cool summer breezes, visiting my Grandparents farm, laughing with my sister and of the lightest, fluffiest most raspberry-y dessert my Mom makes. The smell or the taste of raspberries immediately makes me smile and sigh with contentment.

What's your spirit food? Which food makes you smile the most?


sending you raspberry smiles and dreaming of possibilities,

  4. Happy Mofo!! Raspberries remind me of my childhood too, I spent many a day crawling through the raspberry bushes in our garden and eating most of the raspberries! :)

  6. Raspberries bring back many childhood memories for me too. However, if I were to pic a spirit food, it would probably be the versatile and starchy potato.

    1. The last few weeks I have been in love with the baskets of new, small potatoes that I've been seeing in stores. So many fried potatoes!
