Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting eat, recycle, repeat. It is the intersection of my love of food, desire to share the happiness I’ve found in choosing a healthy lifestyle, and my passion for prioritizing our relationship with the planet. I seek to balance these things with equal amounts of joy and sweet potatoes – an obsession also continued on Twitter, where you can find me as the yaki imo girl. Yaki imo is roasted sweet potato in Japanese. I currently live in Japan, which makes some things easier (like being a day ahead on posts, theoretically) and others harder (sourcing kale, coconut milk, and kombucha. Guess I gotta make my own!).
As for a bit of the run down on this site: on Tuesdays I post Green Tips for easy, sustainable and practical living – ways that allow you to clear clutter and enjoy more joyful green living. On Fridays I post recipes – always gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and delicious. My philosophy on food is that it should be “feel good food”: nourishing, healing for your body, emotionally satiating, free from anxiety, stress, guilt, or any discomfort. On Sundays I post under the theme Food for Thought, about my belief in holistic health and the idea of “eating to heal and living to celebrate”. I believe in:
eating to heal our broken relationship with our bodies
eating to heal our relationship with our environment
living to celebrate food
living to sustain communities
