I cannot believe that it’s been almost a years since I took the plunge to become fully vegan. I have to say that I feel so amazing and I don’t regret it one bit. I feel more happy in my body and it took me a while to figure out what fully works for me. Eating a whole lot of carbs arent ideal, like most things in life, its all about balance. So I like to add a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit to my diet. I’m not fully for raw, but I do believe that adding the freshest produce as possible to my diet is ideal.

Aside from eating as healthy as I can, there is just something about risotto that is so cozy, comforting and perfect to end off this very very long winter. Today was the first day of spring and I feel like it’s been winter forever. Not only are we in a region in France where it rains A LOT, but also in a very small town, so the activities you get to do with a toddler gets quite limiting and routine like.

So yess, thank you spring, I just want to soak up these sunny rays! For now, I am making the most of the time I have before we (fingers crossed) start trying or move to another town. We have one year left in this petite village and with my husbands work, we never know what’s ahead. Just believing you know, that it all will work out is what it’s all about and also so scary.
