Previously this blog was dedicated to the life and endeavors of a teenage vegan navigating a non-vegan world, with recipes, tips, animal activism and more! Now, as of March 2011, I am embarking on a raw food journey for health as well as ethical reasons. Although I am currently raw, I am leaving all of my previous content up, including cooked-food recipes, etc. Veganism is great for the planet, the animals, and YOU!, no matter which form of it you choose to follow :)

A Good Way to Eat Swiss Chard
My mum made the best swiss chard last night. It's too simple to really be a recipe but here's what you do: - Let diced garlic sit in lots of extra virgin olive oil for at least 15 mins (a couple days is best) - Saute cleaned swiss chard in oil and garlic until wilted and tender.
My grandmother cooks her spinach like this, which has been a tradition in our family, all the way from Italy. I like it with spinach more, since its milder and softer, but the swiss chard is definitely good.
This is the multicolored type of swiss chard, with red and yellow stems. Alongside it I had brown rice with sesame seeds on top (Halfway through dinenr I found a package of them in my pocket that I forgot to put on my Asian noodles from lunch.)
