A mindful eating journal sharing recipes and food stories from portland

.. I am on an adventure to mindfully savour food. In my blog I chronicle my kitchen creations and my quest to eat mindfully, to slow down and enjoy the smells, textures, and colors of food. I firmly believe it’s not about what you eat but how you pay attention. Full attention during a meal can mean you derive more satisfaction from just a few bites, than you might get by eating a whole big meal while distracted. I will share what I learn along the way.

My name is Emily, I live in Portland.

Crafty Staci
Crafty Staci
I strongly believe anyone can be creative, they just need the right project. I’m here to help!

I’ve been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember. If there’s a technique I haven’t tried, it’s probably on my wish list. At my blog, Crafty Staci, I share beginner-friendly craft and sewing tutorials, simple recipes, links to fun things I find elsewhere and my successful, and sometimes not-so-successful, attempts at expressing my own creativity. I find that people who haven’t tried it before are occasionally hesitant to take that first step into making things. I try to guide and inspire them to jump in and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way. I hope to encourage others to create and keep handmade alive and well.

Everyday Runaway
Everyday Runaway
Everyday Runaway is a travel, wine and lifestyle blog about my adventures in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

I named my blog Everyday Runaway because I don’t believe you need to quit your job, sell your belongings and live out of a backpack to “runaway” from the mundane, weekly grind of everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, I envy those who have the capability and confidence to take that leap – however, for most of us, that’s not a sustainable lifestyle. So this site caters to the everyday Joe’s and Jane’s who want to make the most of what they have – be it weeks or simply weekends.

Healthy Disney Family
Living a healthy, active lifestyle with a little Disney magic sprinkled in

Hello, I’m Denise! I’m a PR friendly work at home mom blogger, bargain shopper, Disney fanatic, home cook, volunteer, and distance runner (26.2 x2, 13.1 x4, 10k x3, and lots of 5k’s).

I also know a little about weight loss. My dream of running my first Half Marathon at Disneyland at my goal weight had a lot to do with the motivation to lose weight, as well as being a healthier and happier person, mom and wife. With sheer determination, cleaner eating and exercise, I lost 110 pounds after the birth of my son. It wasn’t easy but it sure was worth it!

Before I became a work at home mom, I worked in the culinary industry. I still love to cook and now I create new healthier, lower calorie versions of recipes that are still full of flavor and delicious!

I also love getting deals and bargain shopping. I share my favorite tips, links and coupons on the blog with you too.

Let’s Nom Nom
Let’s Nom Nom
Let’s Nom Nom: restaurant reviews, vegetarian recipes, lifestyle & local events.

Hi, I’m Waz! I recently relocated from New York City to Portland, Oregon. I’m an architect turned graphic designer, and I discovered my love for food while working in advertising for the wine industry. When I moved to NYC in 2011, I started Let’s Nom Nom as to document my cooking and dining adventures in my new city.

Over the years, I’ve gone from flexitarian to vegetarian to mostly vegan, and my blog has followed me on this journey. A plant-based diet is healthier and kinder to my body, to animals, and to our environment. I believe the best way to win omnivores over is by raising awareness of the positive effects of the plant-based movement and by celebrating great food that just so happens to be vegan. Today, my blog focuses on all things veggie, from restaurant reviews, to vegetarian recipes, to lifestyle and local events.

Lastly, why Let’s Nom Nom? Because food brings people together, and great food is best enjoyed with company!

At MacSuzie.com, you will find a little bit of everything: cooking/baking, crafts, beauty, home stuff, things for all seasons, family, travel, and a little of the wisdom I pick up along the way. I’d call my style comfortable and homey, with a lot of color. I’m especially inspired by my mom and grandma, and our family’s traditions. I also love things from days gone by (a Buzzfeed quiz aptly placed me in the 50’s), although I’m not exclusively a vintage girl. I love to re-purpose, giving old things a fresh look with a dash of “MacGyver” and a sprinkle of “Suzie Homemaker” thrown in for good measure.

I have a profound love for food. I mean, who doesn’t?! But, I also believe food nourishes more than just your body, but also the mind and spirit. It is the foundation of who you are and has made you into the strong man or woman you always hoped to be. It is witness to a conversation during a first date, the center of a wedding ceremony, and the conversation sparker between families. Food is more than just a piece meat (figuratively speaking). It is what keeps us healthy and brings joy to our lives on a daily basis. This is what I hope to share.

Strawberry Woman
Strawberry Woman
bringing peace, calm and serious creativity to everyday meal preparation

The summer after second grade, at the tender age of eight, I started my first job. In the early morning hours, when the dew was still heavy on the vines, I boarded an old school bus with my siblings and most of the other town kids and rode to Hentze’s Berry Fields. Here I would spend the day picking strawberries. For pennies. This wasn’t exploitative child labor, it was a way of life in this small town nestled in the farmlands of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It was a lot of things, more of which I’ll write about later, but for me it was the beginning of a passion for food. A passion that I have been blessed to make a career. Deep in my being is that red headed girl with the berry stained jeans. Strawberry Woman is the grown up version of that little girl, armed with lessons from a complicated life and countless hours cooking, ready to guide, instruct and inspire others toward a more peaceful and creative relationship with the kitchen.

The Awkward Olive
Embracing the everyday encounters that give life a little flavor

Its not so much that I thrive on awkward situations, it’s more that I seem to find myself in a lot of them, and thrive anyway… I think that life is all about embracing the every day encounters that give life a little bit of flavor… AKA loving on the little stuff… a lot. Mostly this is a place for me to tell stories about my life, what I’m cooking, crafting, reading, thinking, enjoying, and feeling on any given day. I don’t always proofread, though I probably should start. I like pickles, champagne, peanut sauce, the Red Sox, adventures and some other things. I’ve spend the last seven years directly and indirectly orbiting the Oregon food and wine scene, (delicious!) but mostly I’m just living and loving life in the Willamette Valley. Technically I’m a fashion consultant and boutique manager,but I also teach yoga and barre, and spend a lot of my free time wrangling my troll baby of a bulldog, pretending like I know how to garden, and working on developing my skills as a domestic goddess.

The Vegetarian Baker
A foodie who loves to share with the world delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes.

Hello Everyone.
My name is Jac (Sounds Like Jake) & I am a foodie, blogger, & youtuber. I am a full-time vegetarian and part-time vegan; that is what VegetarianBaker.com has become.
I became a vegetarian in 2007 due to a medical condition known as Chronic Pancreatitis. In 2010, I enrolled into Johnson & Wales University. I graduated four years later with degrees in Pastry Arts & Food Service Management with concentrations in Spirits & Distillation and Psychology. During college, The Vegetarian Baker was born.
TheVegetarianBaker started as an online based cooking show focusing on Vegetarian and Vegan recipes. Once it started getting traction, I created VegetarianBaker.com to have a hub for all my recipes with printable versions of them.

Wasabi Honey Bee
Between running a pie truck and painting pictures, rallying three rambunctious children and sneaking moments to savor every last drop of tea in my cup, I write this mini log of what I love to do best—keep my hands busy making something . . .

MARICA NATALI THOMPSON is a make-it-yourself enthusiast. She has spent years refining the art of “do it your own way.” From painting to sewing, cooking to woodworking, learning from doing has always been a staple in her diet.

Starting a family young, and constantly keeping up with the needs of three growing kids, has only made her more inspired to squeeze all the juice she can out of every last odd, end and free moment she can conjure.

Marica Natali Thompson is also the author of Oh My Sweet Baby and One Treat After Another, Escargot Books and Music, as well as the illustrator of The Blue Heron Ranch Cookbook, North Atlantic Books. She grew up in the mountains outside of Ojai, CA, and now resides in Portland, OR. She currently is running a pie truck with her husband where she spends oh so many hours rolling out dough for both sweet and savory treats.

in the power of positive thinking – that creates positive people – that creates positive action – that creates a positive world
