Happy New Year, everyone! Gosh, it has been a while, hasn’t it? I know that, to some of you, it appears as if I suddenly “disappeared” out of nowhere. But in reality, I was never fully gone.
I am not one to cook with tofu that much. Even though we buy the organic and non-GMO kind, it is still a processed food so we try to keep it to a bare minimum. However, when I do decide to include some tofu in our diet, it must be absolutely packed with flavor.
In sync with Barbara's renowned love for food and all things vegan, I am finding myself looking more and more towards just buying and eating unprocessed foods.
I am not going to lie, it’s been a tough couple of weeks. My husband and I have been trying to re-adjust back to life—back to our normal routine—but no matter how much we try, we never seem to get back there…

Last year Big Apple introduced their annually Artfull Living campaign by partnering up with one of Guatemala's most prestigious artists, Marlov Barrios, whom created a number of one-of-a-kind and highly exclusive pieces especially for the store. I attended the event and I can attest that not only was it a beautiful way to showcase the work of our local artists, it was also a specially educational experience as the artist himself gave us a peek into his world during an interview conducted by Silvia Herrera U.
To say that I loved California is an understatement. I felt right at home there, like I had found my niche. There are vegetarian and vegan restaurants pretty much everywhere (really, really good and gourmet ones), the organic food movement is huge and very strong, everyone seems to care deeply about the environment (we had never seen so many hybrid cars and solar panels in our lives), and the people are a lot more laid back and friendly than in the east coast. I could easily live in Santa Monica or Venice Beach, ride my bike everywhere, and be happy.
Throughout my journey following a plant-based diet, I have come to discover and fall in love with many different kinds of fruits and vegetables that I had never even seen before. They were there, I am sure, but my palette for anything in the produce section back in my non-vegan days was very boring and non-adventurous, so I’d walk right past them without even a glance.
