History for Food

Life as a vegan

Yesterday marked two years of my being vegan! I knew it was coming up, but I didn’t realize what day it was until I checked my calendar today. I should have been paying better attention because then maybe I would have celebrated in some way by making a vegan cake or something equally delicious. Instead [...]

Awaken your Food Sense

When it comes to food, the internet is one of my favorite tools. Yes, cookbooks are amazing, but sometimes you can’t find a recipe to fit your mood, taste, or time at that very moment. In comes the internet. Look up a combo of anything and you’re sure to find something just right. Julie has [...]

Good news to brighten your day & give you hope

Oh, how I love sharing good news with all of you, especially when there’s so much of it that I need to share it all in one post. The days are getting away from me, but I couldn’t wait to share this information, especially since I’ve mentioned many of these issues and topics before, so [...]

Giving never seemed so easy and fun

One of the projects that I’ve been working on for Ecorazzi is their completely new fast-paced philanthropy site called Microist. Microist funds non-profit organizations through donations that are divided among thirty days so that every organization in that thirty days receives an equal amount of funds. Every single day (starting on the 12th of September, [...]

Welcome (back) to Four Leaf Clover, I hope each one of you had a great weekend! And I hope that weekend was filled with at least a little bit of local, fresh, and/or raw foods! You may remember that I’ve been trying to eat more healthy and raw foods and it wasn’t until I started [...]

Move, learn, eat: a moving little video series

Ecorazzi wrote “Is This The Greatest One Minute Around-The-World-Video Ever Created?” and I think it just might be. Since spotting it over there, I’ve been seeing it all over the web. I guess everyone loves getting a glimpse of an adventure like this and I don’t blame them… I do, too! “3 guys, 44 days, [...]

My favorite veggie burger

I’ve had my fair share of veggie burgers: the store bought and homemade kind. I can’t remember not liking any of the veggie burgers I’ve made, but many of them fell apart in the making, were too dry, or took forever to make. Not these! My dad even likes these (he asked for seconds!) and [...]

Four Leaf Clover at Globe Trotting in Heels & Vegansaurus

This Sunday I was featured on Elisa’s Globetrotting in Heels blog for her Sunday Trippin’ series! Elisa is quite the traveler and she currently lives just a train ride away from me in Zürich! For the series, I had to answer questions about a summer trip I’d love to take and now I’m dreaming about [...]

Life tip #21: Eat mindfully

Happy Monday and week to all of you! Lately I’ve been thinking about eating mindfully on a daily basis, about midway through each meal. I first heard about mindful eating in an article on Care2 (I’m betting it was one of these great articles: How to Become an Intuitive Eater, Mindful Eating and Tuning Into [...]

Life tip #20: Drink plenty of tea

Good Monday to all of you! A little while back I asked for you to share your life tips with me and the lovely Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary shared quite a few! One she suggested was “take time for tea” and, if you know me or have been around here on Four Leaf [...]
