Simple Living and Eating is a blog about living and eating in harmony with the planet through Seasonal Eating with the Mediterranean Diet & Traditional Cooking.
How does one do this?
By simplifying your life, deciding what are the most important things to you, and focusing your energy and attention on just those things.
Healthy Eating & Weekly Menu Plan:
In this post I discuss a food, cuisine, or health topic and present my meal plan for the week. I am a proponent of traditional eating as espoused by the organization OldWays.
I think a varied diet that is low in animal products and filled with primarily organic and locally grown produce is the healthiest diet for both people and the planet. I include my weekly menu plan so you can see a regular example of eating in the traditional style, along with a chance to get specific recipes to try.
Simple Living in Practice or Simple Living Ideas:
On some Tuesdays I present either a practical example of how my family and I live simply by: composting, camping, keeping bees...along with organizing tips; or I discuss a Simple Living idea like minimalism, discernment, environmentalism, consumerism, etc.
On the second Tuesday of each month I host a "Food of the World" linky party where you get to share a dish you made from the country that was chosen the month before. Fill in your email below for a monthly reminder for this party.
French Fridays with Dorie: Around my French Table
This is the day I post the recipe I've cooked from Dorie Greenspan’s French cookbook. I joined this cyber cooking club as a way to explore the traditional cuisine of France. I hope this series will encourage you to try a new cuisine yourself.

Foodie Friday Linky Party
On Friday I share a recipe of mine that is either from my Italian - American heritage or other Mediterranean country... sometimes I make a traditional American dish, that I probably infused with another culture's traditional seasoning.
This is a day to celebrate each others food. I invite you to post your recipes and tell your stories about your meals. To me there is nothing more connecting then sharing a meal that you cooked yourself, with your family and friends... sharing our recipes on this party is the closest we can come to this kind of intimacy on the internet.
