Love After love by Derek Walcott

Today I turn 56. Thankful to feel GREAT - and have my amazing family, great friends, and be doing work I love. And to have  Charlie - the best dog ever. This poem that my great friend Mags gave me really inspired me. I think many women my age can relate to these words. It's like... "oh hello... I remember YOU"

The best and easy to make granola

When I became vegan 10 months ago I started doing something I'd never done before . I started following recipes. Mostly recipes from my coach Ellen Abraham's blog the Vegan Love Project. I'd never been a recipe follower, and I found that almost everything I made - without fail - tasted amazing! See - I had an ulterior motive. I wanted my meat eating husband Peter to enjoy the food enough to not complain about the fact that I didn't want to cook meat anymore. My only mishaps were when I didn't follow the recipe. I'd made my own granola for a few years and it was good, but Ellen's City gone Nuts granola - is always great every time. She chose this name after coming up with the recipe in her little kitchen in NYC & cooking it in a toaster oven! Get the recipe here .
