So on Tuesday I went down home to visit my mom, my sister came too, I'll be posting some of her pics on my blog, Never Quit Playing tomorrow so keep an eye out. She took this pic of me in my apron above, as I made slaving over a hot stove look easy and glamorous ;) (Photo by Mara Pranzarone)
I had a great time, I am teaching my mom how to ease into a vegan/whole foods/gluten free/soy free diet to try and ease some of her health problems. Sooner or later I will get her doing physical therapy, because the temporary pain of therapy is worth the relief you get after. I am so thankful for Etty, my physical therapist who I used to see and I hope she's reading this since I gave her my card and I hope she knows how much she has changed my life for the better.
I made my vegan alfredo for my fam down home and it was a hit!
Even my stepdad who told me that grilling veggies and tofu on the fourth of July was unamerican liked it and came back for more!The picture above is made with silken tofu and soy milk, the one I made them was made with cashews and almond milk, here is a pic of that one taken by my sister:, Mara Pranzarone
I am always cooking at night so we didn't have any natural light. Will have to have her come up when we can take pics in the sun, but this is a fun pic of yummay food!
The next day I helped my mom order some cookbooks: The Flying Apron's Guide to Gluten Free Vegan Baking, Appetite for Reduction, The Yummi Cookbook: Delicious, Healthy, Affordable Meals: without Meat, Dairy, Wheat or Soy & Nut Free!, and we also ordered her a Kitchen Ninja and some protein powder. She is ready to start on this veganesque journey to health and reduced pain. She also has fibromyalgia and I'm hoping that this helps her as much as it has me! (I don't know why this is highlighted but I can't make it go away)
This is a pic of me and my moma from a few months back:
...and here is a pic of me and my sister from Tuesday:
I had a good time!
