LIFE HAPPENS

Do you know the feeling when you are so busy that you forget to message a really close friend? Then some time goes by, and any message you could write isn't relevant enough - namely, you have so much to talk about that you don't know where to start and of course you don't have enough time to write it all at once... Then even more time goes by and eventually you are just so embarrassed and can't find the right words how to start...

This is me, right now. 

Life has gotten in my way lately - or I have gotten in the way of my life. I’m finally getting a grip at my new job - only it isn't that new anymore. For the past 3 months I have been working as the project manager of Taimne Teisipäev (Veggie Tuesday), our own little reducitarian campaign in Estonia - our version of Meatless Monday.

We ask restaurants all over the country to have at least one plant-based meal in their menu on Tuesdays, so that people who want to try living healthy a day a time can soon do it everywhere. We also encourage people to try new plant-based recipes by publishing a new recipe every Tuesday. I think I might have the best job ever - promoting plant based food and talking about a topic that I'm so passionate about.

Having a full time job and at the same time being a full time mom, going to the gym... needless to say that my blog has taken a bit of a back-burner.

Of course I'm still cooking every day and also trying to post on Instagram as often as I can - I just haven't had the time to blog. But now - feeling like I finally have my s*it together - I really wan't to correct that mistake and blog more often. I have so many things I want to share, and recipes you guys have asked!

You know... Life happens - I guess there is no point in beating myself up. As much as I try to get everything done 100% one person just can't do it all. And it's okay. It's okay to take time, concentrate a bit and then get back on track. 

I must say that cooking is still an everyday passion of mine. Whenever I feel stressed or overwhelmed I cook a really nice dish. My kitchen is my sanctuary and food is my medicine. And I really want you guys to get to be a part of this passion as well.

 Today's dinner: A homemade burger with coleslaw, black bean patty, bbq mushrooms and little oregano potato wedges on the side- made with the help of my dear hubby.
