(Rat)ical escapades in eco/allergy friendly cuisine.
Yup, that about sums it up!
I love rats. I love food. And despite common sense, they can go together, as seen in my favorite movie of all time. I have taken on the challenge of creating a cuisine of food that is friendly to you, your allergies, animals, and the planet. This happens with quite a few mishaps, but it’s all an adventure, right?
Vinny and I– he is one of the most amazing rats. Ever.
At the ripe old age of eleven, I watched a documentary called: “Animals: Friend or Food”, and turned vegan immediately. Veganism, which I am very passionate about, led me to other forms of activism and opportunities, including being a photographer for a 2011 ten-day peace walk.
I had been gluten and wheat free for six years, but I have tested out eating it to see if it was truly causing my problems. Read more about that here. I seem to be having no issues eating it, but I want to make recipes that my mom (who is celiac) and anyone struggling with allergies can enjoy!
I have been in and out of public school all my life, but have now settled on unschooling. Read a bit more about my personal homeschool philosophy here. If you are a teen interested in homeschooling, I can’t recommend Grace Llewellyn’s book: “The Teenage Liberation Handbook” enough!
