World Food Day Zoom Cooking Class

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Friday, October 16th is World Food Day and on that day I will be holding my monthly ZOOM cooking class sponsored by New Horizons Senior Center. It is: Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free and you are invited. Here is the link below. No fee.

The topic is jar sprouting and microgreens and I will be going over a recipe I posted some time ago that I am re-labeling Halloween Soup made with organic sweet potatoes and sprouted black beans. Also an early fall salad and maybe an appetizer.

World Vegetarian Day Follow Up

Sunday, October 4th, 2020

October 1st was World Vegetarian Day. Because I posted a poem and art for fall, I only listed a website to view. Here it is again in case you missed it:


Today I am posting information that is a follow-up to World Vegetarian Day. The source is from Food Revolution, a creation of Ocean and John Robbins (whom I met decades ago at a vegetarian conference.) In one email I received a chart called TOP 10 Foods to EAT and AVOID for Longevity. (Short explanations are added to each food)

Sorry, the Jewish Holiday of Succot interrupted my posting of this recipe, so I will post it on Monday or Tuesday if this week. Thanx, Lois, for catching my error!

Also, here is a simple Early Fall Salad to help you celebrate eating lower on the food chain. Because I had not planned to post it, I don’t have specific amounts, so this is one of my cooking-by-the-strings of your apron.
