For some time I’ve been meaning to show you our garden, but it’s rather messy (permaculture-ish) which makes that it takes some effort and skills to take good pictures. So I did not do that yet. Today, however, we had such a great-looking harvest that I wanted to show you! The garden is managed by three people and we started this year only. It’s an allotment garden in the city where we live. The garden […]

July 26 is the start of a new year: the year of the Yellow Crystal Seed. You see, there are different ways to make sense of time. The calendar as we know and generally use, the Gregorian calendar with its twelve months per year, is just one of those systems. Another and perhaps a more logical and useful system is the one presented in the 13 Moon calendar. The 13 Moon calender actually includes multiple […]

Hello all, I just crawled out of bed in the night with hunger and some nice clear thoughts. 🙂 Recent times have been so interesting. I have been stuck in some senses, while at the same time I have experienced a lot. My life has been simple in ways, which allowed me to clear my vision. I am in a place where it is easy to tell what is what, what is whose, where does […]

“And no she did not apologize for giving her blood to the earth”Scarlet Crow in Scarlet Moon Here is a small collection of pictures, which resonate a lot with me right now. The plants help to see the beauty of nature, of growth, of the reproductive cycles, of being female and bearing everything in us. Spring is booming so you can see it everywhere; the gentle reminders showing that life is beautiful. I strive to […]

Today I want to reach out to those who came here because they thought Munching on a Dream was a food blog. It is really more than that! I like food and I have posted many food related posts. Nevertheless, I do not consider this blog as a food blog! Since the beginning, which is already 2.5 years ago, helping and inspiring people to shift to a (more) vegan diet has been one of my […]

In this moment I am excited! I am grateful for and thrilled about the opportunities in life. We are lucky to experience as we do. We get to go out in the world, to explore. Let’s make the most of it and do it together!

Hi peepz, How are you doing? 🙂 I am going through some rather difficult circumstances these days. I do regard them as learning opportunities, nevertheless I’m still having the regular ups and downs. But that’s how it goes! Unless you truly decide to quit suffering and act on it. The whole practice is to accept what is and don’t cling to anything, to have a good relationship with what is in this moment. Then you’ll […]

Bad dairy news for a better future

It’s not easy to deliver people the bad news, especially if they know it’s there and don’t want to hear it. People do this thing called strategic ignorance, in which they deliberately ignore all information they wish didn’t exist, so they can tell themselves that all is fine. There’s no problem there, as long as I can pretend there isn’t. This strategic ignorance is also being used by people to deny the problems that arise […]
