Conquering new heights. Two months ago I stopped eating meat after one of my friends kept posting on their Facebook page photos with animal rights. Well... this is the long story short. In fact that was only the trigger point because afterwords the idea stuck with me and so the research started. The truth is sad. We hurt animals in all the way possible. We skin them to death, make tests on them, beat them for pleasure, we destroy their habitats, we steal their food and steal their future. I realize I'm just one person that made up her mind to stop eating meat but somehow my soul feels a relief.
And when I say "two months ago I stopped eating meat" I really mean I stopped eating period. Since all my life I was taught to cook with meat now I feel like I'm in no man's land. I linger in supermarkets looking at products for minutes in a raw not being able to decide what to buy. Even sales assistants give me weird looks that make me feel embarrassed. Of course I browse recipes while being there, that's how I bought couscous. Good choice, bad recipe.
Now, this suffering has to stop. I went yesterday to Oxfam and bought this cook book. Everything in it seems simple and tasty so tomorrow I'll make my first meal, something with cinnamon and figs. Fingers crossed and maybe I won't starve again.
If anyone has been through this already please share your experiences, I feel kinda lonely in this.
I had the chance last night to do some researching on the shows from New York fashion week. I have a few favorites but I must confess I wasn't really wowed by anything in particular. Robert Rodriguez, Kaelen and Helmut Lang grabbed my attention with their clean, cut structures accessorized by beautiful insertions of colour and prints. Other collections that I really enjoyed watching were those signed by Jason Wu and Reed Krakoff. I loved Wu's topaz shades and Krakoff's ivory, flowy materials. Below are the ones that I liked the most. Which ones are your picks?
