21. Alicia Silverstone’s Magical Miso Soup
So healthy and good for you. I went to the Asian supermarket to hunt for some of the more obscure ingredients like seaweed, tofu, bok choy, miso, and mochi. Added lotus root, cabbage, and leek into the mix. I ate a ridiculous amount of yummy healthy veggies this weekend, especially dark green stuff.
And now I know where to find obscure ingredients, so I will be much less intimidated next time!!!!! 2 years ago
20. Bruschetta Pasta
This was my own culinary invention. Tomatoes, garlic, onions, cheese, pesto and pasta = yummy gooey excellence. Go me – inventing things!! Whooohooo!!!! 2 years ago
19. Daikon Tea
According to Alicia Silverstone, this magical healing Japanese radish relaxes the liver and cures menstrual cramps. The texture is a bit funky (radish grated to a pulp, boiled in water and mixed with soy sauce) but I got over it and gulped it down… it has a light soft flavour, almost like a very mild refreshing ginger.
This is not a crowd pleasure but I definitely feel mellow and relaxed after a cranky day. I will keep this in my repertoire for the next time I am sick.
Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook is filled with obscure ingredients and very quirky recipes, but if you are open-minded it is quite the adventure! 2 years ago

16. Homemade Granola
Turned out amazing. I have decided to move cooking back to the top of the list, but in a very self-nurturing and self-nourishing way. It is a key step to looking after myself. It should not feel like a chore. 2 years ago
It turned out fantastic. Adding it to the list.
