Canned Time

I write a fun blog, that presents healthy food alternatives with a fun flare. I teach about making food taste as good as it can make you feel.

Since 2010, I have used food alternatives, vegan, plant based and non-dairy to change my health and my life.  Now I try to give back by sharing what I've learned with other folks to try and build a base of healthy food alternative sharing.  I love seeing new pics on Pinterest and Facebook from friends sharing and learning about healthy living.  It's a new world for me that is filled with fun and pride in what I share and learn with others.

C.   And now it's on to winter dreariness.  That's the only way to get to Spring though so we'll chug through the dark mornings, the icy roads the holiday nightmare of crowds and retailers.  I'll be dreaming of Spring and flowers and green for now, not presents and 'more stuff'.........more
