Home Sweet Oklahome – it's about to get raw…

Raw cupcakes made from beet pulp: the different colours of icing were achieved with cashew, spirulina, bee pollen, dried parsley powder, and beetroot juice. Yes, we gave in and made raw cupcakes, they were delicious, and although I still can’t claim that they would save the world, they do make it a little more colorful…

Kimchi (or kimchee) is loaded with vitamins A, B, and C, but its biggest benefit may be in its “healthy bacteria” called lactobacilli, found in fermented foods like kimchi and yogurt. This good bacteria helps with digestion, and according to recent studies it helps to stop and even prevent yeast infections. There’s more good news: some studies suggest that fermented cabbage has compounds that may prevent the growth of cancer. A traditional Korean food that is eaten at almost every meal – Koreans say “kimchi” instead of “cheese” when getting their pictures taken! – the ingredients include fermented napa cabbage (and sometimes radish) seasoned with a mix of garlic, salt, vinegar, chilli peppers, and other spices.

Places that you hit up when in Oklahoma:

Shop Good is a store next to a great sushi place called Pachinko Parlor (try the Doodle roll), it is in downtown OKC and it has really cool sustainable stuff: “Every item in the store—whether it’s a pair of skinny jeans, a hand-poured soy candle or a giant cheeseburger wallet—is socially responsible, fairly traded and connected to a local or international community development project”.

Elusive thrift store in Norman, Oklahoma really outshined all the thrift and second hand stores we have ever been to… I guess thrift stores in places like London, NY, Paris and all those cosmopolitan cities (sorry Norman you have many delightful qualities but being cosmopolitan isn’t one of them) which have a long standing tradition in thrift stores have somehow become overpriced and pretentious making it hard for us to find any really original items. So when we wandered into Elusive to be greeted by its charming owner and its magical treasures we were no less than euphoric. We found everything from 50′s nurse dresses to antique cutlery, to old recipe books !

Red Cup Coffeehouse has great coffee, a stupendous outside seating area and the people that work there are soo sweet. They have vegan options for food as well, like vegan chilli and a vegan meatball sub. Not quite gourmet but FUN!
