April 2019: The Month of Cin
I’m not good at challenges and changing comfortable behavior patterns for periods of time. However… a good friend–a vegetarian knitrix extraordinaire–has been living with Essential Thrombocythemia, a rare form of chronic blood cancer. I wanted to do something as a show of solidarity. Something a little longer and a little more involved. Thus… April of 2019 is now The Month of Cin. During this timeframe, I’ll be following a clean (no processed or fast foods) ovo-lacto vegetarian diet.
I love a project. So let’s get started, shall we?

Just a little vegetarian food porn! This is the Black & Blue burger (blue cheese, granny smith apple chutney & assorted seasonal greens) from The Burger Stand in Topeka, KS. The twist? I requested that it be made with an Impossible Burger, making it a vegetarian option worthy of the Month of Cin.Read More
I came across this recipe in a Facebook group and realized right away that it could be easily adapted to a low carb/keto dish. It is really tasty and got raves all around my table.Read More
