‘Spring is showing up’ Salad (white cabbage/chickpeas/purple radish/olive lactofermented tofu/sesame seeds)
You are moving forward.
The road isn’t straight so you may not realise it, but you are moving forward.
And like the good weather makes the flowers bloom, the coming of spring season have some cravings be reborn – namely, here it is a craving for a white cabbage/purple radish slices/chickpeas/olive lactofermented tofu/and sesame seeds salad.
Sometimes I tell myself that if I close my eyes the very best I can, someday I’ll wake up from this nightmare. As if none of this had ever existed. Someday I’ll wake up and it won’t be here anymore.

‘Dream your life in colour, that’s the secret of happiness’, hummed a Peter Pan’s song. And I would add, ‘dream your life in sweet nothings too’. Daily life is cruel enough as it is, with all of its disappointments and false joys, its uncomfortable and nerve-wracking moments. It is important to treat oneself with kindness from time to time and find a balance again.
Last December, I met ODIL TV and had a chat about my blog and my universe, about my story, my past with anorexia and how my blog partly helped me in recovery, about the ideas I share as a simple “girl next door”, and about my inspirations, the way I choose to look at life, which is filled with magic at every single moment.
French singer, guitarist, songwriter, and talented interpret, based in Lyon, Gabrielle Grau agreed to have a chat with me last September to talk about where she comes from, her inspirations and creative process, her unforgettable experiences as the opening act of two major French artists, aka Vianney & Julien Doré, and much more.
