On this lovely and sunny Monday afternoon, something fabulous happened: I found my new blog name!
Why “My Lighthearted Kitchen”?
Well, for the last couple of weeks, I have been thinking about my life, my beliefs, and my attitude. From this introspection came the realization that I used to be a lot more lighthearted, but that somehow with stress, work, stress from work, and growing up, this quality has started to crumble out of my personality.
This is not a good thing. (see what I mean?)
So, in an effort to show more lightheartedness, I decided that working with a name that was scary and limiting had to stop. Why scary? Well, try telling someone you barely know, like a colleague for example, that you are vegan. When I did, I certainly was welcomed with fear, misunderstanding, teasing, concern, and often anger. Not very lighthearted words.
Also, I really want to share my recipes and show others that it can be easy and simple to switch to a vegan diet. Of course, I cannot do this with a scary name. As I didn’t want to go with the new vegan (plant based) word, I tried to focus on a quality that I wish my work here to stem from.
So, yes, my recipes will still continue to be vegan and gluten-free. However, the spirit in which they will be done and shared will be different.
So, in all lightheartedness, I hope you enjoy the new content, and let me know what you think!
