Introducing @cyclingchef: When I'm not cycling or at work, you'll probably find me in the kitchen.

What am I doing here on Steemit?

My lovely daughter, @hannahlicious, thought it would be fun for me to share some of my recipes for healthy meals and cakes. My kitchen cupboards are rammed with quite an array of pulses and several varieties of lentils. I don't drink much wine nowadays but I use a fair amount in the cooking. I'm a gluten dodger as it makes me ill and I'm a wannabe vegetarian because of animal welfare issues, climate change and world hunger. That's heavy but I feel this would be a good forum in which I could learn from others and finally kick that occasional craving for bacon and chorizo, both of which can turn a bowl of lentils into something really special. So, I'm looking for top tips from all you lovely vegans and vegetarians out there.

Cycle Touring Tips Please!

My other half and I are going to retire in two years' time and plan some serious cycle touring in Europe, the US (definitely want to cycle Oregan) and in Australia. We have cycled Lands End to John O'Groats, and various Coast to Coast and other routes in the UK and we are not scared of a hill. So any tips and advice would be most welcome.
In the meantime I cycle to work each day to my job as a community public health nurse.

Thank you

Thanks to @hannahlicious for helping me to get started: Steemit How To: Write A Good Post For Newbies

@rlamasb for being the best son-in-law

Check out my recipe for Kaffenback Gluten-Free Apricot Cake

I'm afraid I won't be able to respond instantly as my day job is very demanding!

Hi Nezbong. Thanks for the tips in your post. We'll definitely have to factor New Orleans into our travels. :)

No problem! I know it was very confusing for me at first. I was like, wow how do they put those pictures on there. Good luck and I will probably do one at week 2 with some other helpful hints. Nezbong

Btw if you are ever here the name of the caffe is Rouler

Brilliant, thank you. I'm on a steep learning curve. :)

Hi @cyclingchef! Great post! I'm a vegetarian with vegan tendencies myself. I must check out your recipe for Apricot Cake. I just got a bike, any recommendations for good helmets? Los Angeles is too crazy to ride without one. Have a great day! - :) @Tiffy

Hi @Tiffy. As long as your helmet meets a national standard, it should keep your bonce safe. Then it is very much down to how comfortable it feels. Always try it with your eye wear, to make sure that the two are compatible for for fit (and style!). If you're cycling in hot weather, good ventilation helps. A nice light helmet also improves comfort. Just remember that a cheap helmet will protect you just as well as an expensive one. I have a Specialized Prospero03, which replaced the 02, which took a bang last November, thanks to a careless driver.
Always wear clothes that make you visible... It doesn't have to be hi-viz lycra but don't cycle round in black on a dark night...have fun and stay safe. :)
