My uncle once asked what my sister and I wanted for dinner on a particular evening. “Stuffed turkey!” I exclaimed as my sister simultaneously cried “Calimari!” Not daunted in the least, my uncle made both, along with a 3-course following for each. My aunt contributed with a marzipan cake. At the end of the meal, a liter of ice cream was placed before me and I was told “if you don’t eat it, it will melt”. There didn’t seem to be a choice. Sometimes, things are just bound to go wrong.
You know you’re in good company when the short-firings of your brain are not only totally acceptable, but met with enthusiasm and embellishment. The following conversation commenced during a springtime walk in Copenhagen with two of my lovely and equally creative compatriots.
L: Ahhh, it’s such a nice day!
M: Totally! I have taken one of my many scarves off to enjoy it.
P: Let’s cross the road here… …enter path away from main street, see a curious sign…
M: Hey, look, this is where you can walk your croissant.
L: Yes, it’s a very French area, right around here.
P: That kid can barely keep up with the croissant!
M: Croissants must be fast.
L: Didn’t you ever wonder how French people stay so slender? It’s all the croissant walking.
I’m pretty sure that with two extra white panels, the croissant would turn into a basketball. But who am I to interpret public wayfinding in a land where the entire month of December is devoted to eating æbleskiver?

When the site first launched we made a “hello, we’re in this world” promo postcard featuring one of the brilliant ideas from their blog, Salad in a Jar. Not only is it cute, it’s easy and healthy.
With summer coming up, it seemed like a perfect time for a follow-up postcard as a reminder of just how good smoothies can be (for you) – that’s why we made the Mix & Match Smoothie Diagram for all of your summertime blending needs.
Visit the Well Vegan blog to for some smoothie recipes as well as smoothie time-saving and on-the-go tips. Below is just one of their recipes to get you started.
