Is it just me, or have things been a little slow around here these days? I’ve personally been a little less active with posts, but very busy behind the scenes. I haven’t seen many of your lovely posts as often these days either, so I’m wondering what you’re all up to as well! Perhaps you are all working on new plans, ideas, projects that you resolved to do in the new year? Whatever it may be, I’d love to hear about it.
On my end, it’s been almost a year that I started my beloved little blog. It began from a love for food and fashion, hence the name – Silk and Spice. As it evolved, and I evolved, I realized my focus began to shift, and I really became passionate about creating and sharing healthy vegetarian and surprisingly, a lot more vegan meals. Fashion went on the back burner (except in my day to day working life), and I just kept focusing on what I really enjoyed, here. Over the last few months, I’ve really started to connect with many people who I didn’t initially think would even bother reading my blog, and it’s helped me shift my ideas and perspectives. When I started my blog, I thought I would just connect with other like-minded individuals. You know, nooch eating vegetarians. But I was fortunate enough to get a lot of feedback from my readers, and the one common factor was that these people felt confident to cook these meals for their family members who would rather be eating a steak and doing so with simple ingredients, usually in a short amount of time. That seriously fueled me, and now more than ever I just want to be able to create a resource to go to for everyday weeknight meals that are plant-based and of course, made with love. For the working moms, the meat-eaters, the gals with the protein obsessed boyfriends, the plant-based foodies, the kids, and everyone else whose curiosity might be sparked.
Today I introduce you to the new face of my little blog, Love and Lentils.
Thanks for reading,
