Let's Talk About... Food

Hello, hello!

We have not spoke for couple of days. But as you know time off is the great time for reflection, relaxation and of course FOOD!
Oh glorious food! How I love you! You are beautiful, delicious and fascinating. There is not a day goes by that I don't think about you. You are….
Ok, enough! We all know that food is essential to our survival. We have to eat! What we eat depends on us, our likes, our desires, our beliefs, our strength if you wish (that pie looks soooooo good).
There are many ways that we consume food: raw, fried, boiled, stewed, pickled, toasted, baked and many other ways. We create at home or consume someone else’s creations. We grow it ourselves or gather someone else’s harvest. There are so many ways.
Well, I’d like to introduce you to some of the options that are out there. These have been tested and proven to be one of the best options. So let’s have a look.
Raw Food
Everyday RawRaw foodism (or rawism) is a lifestyle promoting the consumption of uncooked,
unprocessed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet.

Some of the well known advocates of rawism are Caroline Alt (model), Woody Harrelson and Mel Gibson. It is becoming more and more popular. You might think it’s bazaar way to consume food but we all do it. Think about it, fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and berries, how about sashimi. There are many cook books about raw food. Well, there is not really much cooking going on but these books show you fabulous ways to put all the raw ingredients together.

The Russian Heritage Cookbook: A Culinary Heritage Preserved in 360 Authentic Recipes
Homemade Cuisine

Ok, this one is a little different. Homemade usually means made at home. Since we are all different our homemade cuisine will depend on us. Thus, I am pretty sure we all have our own cook books with our own homemade recipes. For example, you’ll find many original Russian recipes in my homemade cook book. Cabbage… Yum, yum! What is your favorite homemade recipe? Would you like to share any?

Restaurant Food

Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 1What a great concept, you don’t feel like cooking, you go to the restaurant and pay someone to do that for you. There are so many varieties of food: fast food, ethnic food, gourmet food, fine dining, pub food, canteen food (well, they do sell food), takeout food. Once again, it all depends on you and your likes: Chinese food, Italian food, French cuisine, Spanish food (hmmmm, Paella), Lebanese food, Indian food and so many, many more. With the world “shrinking”we have a great opportunity to taste variety of the world class cooking. Are you ready for some Chinese tonight?

So, you get the idea. Current times bring lots of variety and time saving to current woman. Make sure to visit all of the suggested links. There is some interesting information about food. I personally like an option of making your favorite restaurant meal at home. Hey, why not feel like Chef Pierre for a night!

There is not really much more to say but: “Enjoy your meal!” on “Bone Appetite!”.

And remember...

Be Active! Be Involved! Be a Current Woman!
