From Europe, With Love.

Although I'm not officially settled into my new abode yet, I can't help but share with you some of what I've discovered during my latest trip in Europe. In just a week, I've managed to consume about twice as much chocolate, copious amounts of yoghurt, and a whole lot of other stuff I normally wouldn't eat (ahem, speculoos, stroopwafels, and bread). I'm hoping I can get back to my regular routine soon, but for now, I share with you a couple of sneak peeks to what I've been up to the past few weeks.

When I do get back into it, I can guarantee that there will be some changes to the blog, which I hope are more reflective of what I want this blog to be about- my undeniable love for wholesome (especially raw!) food, design, and travel. I can't wait.

  1. I'm glad you're allowing yourself to experience the culture through food. They are so intertwined and you'd so miss out if you stuck religiously to your raw! I admire your spirit of adventure. I'm sure as you get more settled you'll find a whole host of raw/vegan places as well, Germany has a big environmentally/health scene.

    1. Thanks! I agree; I think that food is something you need to experience in a foreign culture because it plays such a big part in that culture, no matter where you are in the world. It's part of what makes that specific place unique to everything else around you. I can always attempt to make a raw version of something I've tried during my travels, but of course it will not be as authentic.

      That said, I don't always stick to 100% raw 100% of the time. I eat mostly raw for health and because it feels good, but I don't think restricting myself too much is healthy either. I don't think there's anything wrong if I suddenly feel like having a whole pizza fresh out of the oven instead of having a biiiig bowl of vegetables. Its human nature, what can I do? Of course, I do admire the people who can stick to 100% all the time.

      I hope so, too! I haven't been to many specifically vegan restaurants much, but even in a country notorious for having high meat consumption I have found food that I would happily eat. I've heard that one Oktoberfest tent even has a special vegan menu for the first time since the festival started, so there are definitely more and more choices as time goes by. Who knows? Maybe next thing we know, all restaurants will have at least one raw option available. That might take a while though, haha.
