I want to share with you a blog that some of you might enjoy. Petit World Citizen is a lifestyle blog focusing on living and eating mindfully. Petit World Citizen is the outward expression of, my friend and health coach learning partner, Martine’s passions for travel, cooking and global health.
Yesterday, I read one of her articles and was so enthralled in her adventure that I forgot it was an article about a cake. See, I only read blogs when a topic catches my eye and I never read food blogs…I just go to the recipe. This article made me change my mind and realized I was truly missing something. Why?
Martine’s article titled “Three Little Birds” is funny, uplifting, and relatable. First of all, she begins by quoting Edward Murphy of the too well known Murphy’s Law. You know your are in for a ride when something is prefaced by reminding you about Murphy’s Law. Her cake baking story involves a contest, a fire alarm, a crying toddler, a Bob Marley song, a slow driver, and ends with a first place recipe. It reads like an adventure with lessons on how to handle stress, adjusting your perspective, and rising above the madness.
I thought I adored Martine before reading this article, but now I really appreciate her spunk, competiveness, her determination, her positive attitude, and witty perspective.
Do yourself a favor and read this article. While you are there you can peruse her collection of beautiful food photography and great recipes. I know I will be making the Sweet Potato Cake with Mascarpone Frosting in honor of her strength and courage…and because I like sweet potatoes.
Eat more cake!
