Redefining homemade: The philosophical contemplations of a girl who sees the world through food.

Thank you for this message, and thank you for letting me know that you appreciate my humble efforts.

This is such a lovely message. It seems to me from your blog that you’re going through some philosophical moments of introspection as well, and I do hope you (and all other followers) find a sense of empathy in my writing, because at the heart of it perhaps we’re all struggling to define why we do what we do, and there is a beauty in verbalizing that confusion too.

This is such a sweet message - I must say you’re equally as awesome for sending this to me.

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for this message. It is very worrying, and I do hope it comes to nothing - what adds an extra dimension to the death threats is that they do appear to be racially targeted at the Asian community. What with the adeptness of the Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) I doubt anything bad will transpire, but again, thank you for the good wishes! 

Don’t worry - there is no such thing as an odd question, only an interesting one. In fact, as I’ve hinted at in this post, my mother has always been a huge proponent of healthy food so I grew up with a love for vegetables and a proclivity for eating fruit. But of course I eat food that isn’t healthy. Especially now that I’m in college, I eat decadent desserts and especially the Insomnia Cookies of Harvard square whenever I can, because it makes me happy and I need to be happy to work.

At the end of the day, the only thing to remember in eating healthy is moderation. Eating 100% fruit and vegetables isn’t healthy (something that I’m still learning), nor is eating a 100% diet of superfoods either. Imagine someone eating a diet of chia seeds all the time! Just learn to moderate yourself, and Love Yourself. There’s no one way to do this, but as long as you don’t eat anything in excess you should consider yourself healthy.
