My first week on Steemit

in introduceyourself •  9 months ago

It has been a week since I started looking at Steemit and joined the Steemit platform (thank you Vincentb for the encouragement and your videos!) and it has been a wonderful delightful educational week, full of curiosity and surprises. I have enjoyed writing my blog posts about my real passion which is cooking, finding old recipes, authentic Welsh, Irish (sense the name) Scottish, Cornish, Breton and Spanish (yet to post about this) recipes. I am vegan (but cook non-vegan for my husband), following a diet, looking for old grains for flour and for baking. I am researching Ayurveda, as well as the Celts and connecting with people keen on Crypto-currency in Wales. @pennsif I wish I could do the meet-up.

I travel alot as a professor to conferences and seminars and sometime not on my own. This is what an Americano coffee means for the Italian's in a cafe next to the Colosseum in Rome. I think the waiters were laughing at us (Americans!).

I don't really understand Steemit yet, but I am following those with new ideas about the platform and I am following those who want an alternative; alternative lifestyles, alternatives economies, and those who are interested in the economic freedom, that Steemit, maybe could offer.

In my real job I teach sustainability and all of these ideas, these problems, with the ways we can create as our future are on my agenda. This was Nantes Brittany and a meal of with Breton cider. The Dalai Lama was in the town the weekend we happened to visit and all the cafes and restaurants were full to overflowing with people for the event.

Hi @cliodhna,

I read your post. Firstly it was wonderful knowing you . Your passion for cooking is something which attracted me the most. Even I love cooking and my most favorite section in Steemit is the food section. I try making most of the recipes shared by the steemians here. I am going to check out all your recipes. Thanks for sharing.

Try the British Mince Pies, they are better than anything you could buy in a shop in the UK!

Thank you! I am really enjoying the platform.

Welcome to Steemit from the South West UK. I am resteeming this post as part of the Steemit Newbie Resteem Initiative. Our goal is to basically help new users by increasing their posts exposure on the platform and provide advice. In regards to your comments on meet up's, I occasionally run walk with me meet ups centered on historical sites. If you scroll down my blog you will find these as we recently did a small one. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and look forward to your posts.

·

Thank you, when I am back in the UK I would like to do the meetups.

Welcome to SteemIt Cliodhna. I am new here as well. Steem is just amazing and versatile. I love this biosphere.

The food is looking nice and I know a thing or two about Ayurveda too.

I am sorry, but why were they laughing at you? Coffee is looking good.

Hi I'm interested in Ayurveda and have been on a Vegan diet and cooking mostly lentils, vegetables and rice. I'm making my own bread of an old flour grain (Einkorn) and I was really trying to find out whether there was an old wheat variety in Ayurveda.

·
·

I am not aware of a wheat variety. However, the ayurvedic principles suggest you to cook food in open air and allow the exposure of sun, i.e. pressure cookers must be avoided.

Also, insist on complete digestion of food, instead of eating healthy foods. As, healthy food when wrongly combined becomes unhealthy.

Turmeric is very beneficial and anti-cancerous besides many other benefits. It must be consumed regularly.

One must drink water slowly as it helps calm down pitta. Unbalanced pitta causes a lot of diseases.

I find these principles to be interesting and effective.

Hi!

I have created a new post on SteemIt about Ayurvedic recipes. https://steemit.com/ayurved/@technological/healthy-ayurvedic-recipes . See if you find it interesting and let me know your opinions on recipes as well as the post. Sorry, I am new on Steem and I am not able to decide whether my post is good or not.

Thank you!

Hi! Turmeric is one of the most important Ayurvedic herbs. I have recently written a post about the medicinal benefits of turmeric.

Please let me know if you found the post useful.

·

I am taking turmeric everyday as a pill and also have bought fresh turmeric which I put in my cooking. I like ayurvedic medicine alot. I also take trifala.

·

The coffee was HUGE about a whole pint of it, when the Italians drink very small coffees.

·
·

Oh. My cups are always big, so I could't understand. I am a coffee addict and I totally love it.
