This morning I did not make it to my exercise class; however, I did manage to finish the last essay in the book Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant. I could really relate to the "Food Nomad" essay; there are definitely *strange* foods that make me feel at home. I have certainly had my fair share of odd looks when I come back with a bag filled with treasures. Although, I will admit that I do also crave the "traditional, crappy, processed" junk food. I feel fortunate that (aside from being a vegetarian) I am not a particularly picky eater. The concept of cooking and eating well as part of self-care was a theme that emerged from the essays. I am also excited to try the recipes and cooking techniques that were described. The way that food can draw you into a comforting place was another idea that resonated with me.
Would you recommend to a friend? YES!
