About Me:
I live in San Jose in the capital of the Silicon Valley in California. I became vegetarian in the late 80's.

I enjoy cooking healthy recipes for my family, blogging about healthy meals, making easy soaps for my friends, reading about health and nutrition, and walking almost everyday.
What are your goals?
Live healthy & happy :)
Favorite Music:
The 80's to listen during the day and Enigma when I need to relax
Favorite TV Shows:
I like the cooking show "Made in Spain" by Jose Andres, a Spanish chef who brought Tapas (small plates) to America. His recipes are not all vegetarian but I can always get the best ones from him or make them vegetarian with the meat substitutes from the market.
What is your current exercise routine?
Walking, going up the hills, and some stretching
What diets have you tried?
I don't diet but eat right.
What things do you want to do before you die?
Go to Europe, Middle East and have my own business
What is your favorite book?
I do not have any in particular but enjoy reading cooking & Ancient History books. Right now, I am reading different books about nutrition.

Earth Day Birthday

The ancient cultures who inhabited this blue planet before we did honored the Earth with prayers, rituals, and rites, ensuring harmony and balance with their surroundings. Although we rely on the same planet, Earth Day - now an international holiday - is a relatively new tradition in modern times.

This spring, we celebrate the 40th birthday of Earth Day, warranting a…

The Great American Soap Overdose

Earth Day is coming... why don't take care of many things that affect our living world saving money at the same time?

While having clean clothes is obviously both hygienic and neighborly, how they get that way may be more open to imagination and experimentation than you may have considered. And consider you should, because as it turns out, the…
