29 april-5 may: turning healthier

over the last month we ate ridiculous amounts of meat of all kinds, this week we decided to make peace with our bodies & have a meatless week & “healthy” week.

this was a good opportunity to initiate our cookbook series, we have ~30 of them but lately they just seem to lay sad on the shelves. we decided to pay special attention to each & every book by reading it thoroughly & cooking as much recipes as possible from it.

we start with a book on healthy cooking (“the healthy kitchen of al hashulhan“).
