I think I will always look back on 2013 as the year that completely kicked my butt — and took my breath away. This year I challenged myself in a million different ways, faced some big gremlins, and I can’t believe everything that happened when I look back on it all.
For starters, I changed my diet and moved away from being exclusively plant-based after six long years. I’m happy to report that nowadays my body is feeling strong and healthy with the mix of plant-based/meat-based/seasonal/gluten-free/grain-free dishes I enjoy. (It also really likes these zucchini pizza boats.)
I discovered that you can make (non-dairy) sugar-free coconut vanilla ice cream in a food processor. Big win.
I survived a tricky legal situation regarding my blog name and this website became officially known as In Sonnet’s Kitchen.
I showed the world how to spiralize zucchini and how to make zucchini fettuccine. And, once you do that, you need to top it with this beef bolognese, easy lentil marinara, or this amazing rosemary-butternut (non-dairy) creme sauce.
My relationship of seven years ended. This inspired a lot of reading about healthy relationships and the realization that the beauty of this life is that we get to choose how we want to feel. We can’t control how other people think, feel, or act, but we always get to choose our feelings. And I choose to feel good.
