Being plant-based in a carnivorous world is heavy. Have you ever looked at a rental property, opened the oven and wished you hadn’t? Who knows what was cooked in there to cause such a blackened lavarock mess at the bottom? No thanks! One instance in particular was our last rental, a studio in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan directly south of Spanish Harlem, the kitchen was not much bigger than a broom closet with no counter space. The biggest concern was the set up: the oven was butted-up directly against the outside wall, that seemed like a huge safety issue (fire hazard!!!). And the studio by stovetop alone got ridiculously hot in the summer. For people who like to cook and eat (especially cake) that was a real bummer, so we had to make-do and improvise.
January is National Oatmeal Month, so… BOOM!
Every month the Whole Grains Council celebrates one of the world’s staple foods… grains! This month is dedicated to oats as they are bought most by consumers in the month of January than any other month in the year.
