I’m glad that the resources I shared last week were helpful to some of you. I’ll keep sharing as I do my own work—today, that means recommending Ava Duvernay’s 13th. If you’ve had questions about mass incarceration and its place among other systems of oppression, the documentary will probably answer some of them, and it […]

Menu Plan Monday: Spring Soba Salad, Red Curry Rice Noodle Bowls, Broccoli Stem Stir Fry and More

Quick and easy are the name of the game this week and next, as I settle into the home stretch of this busy semester. This week’s vegan menu plan is all about convenience and sticking to tried and true options–at least one of which is a recent favorite! Yep, I enjoyed these red curry rice […]

I originally intended for them to help me meditate on and find meaning in each year, but the posts are usually more inquisitive than expository. How to talk about this year? […]

Change. Whether we like it or not, change tends to be on people’s minds at this time of year.

“Small, Daily Choices”: Veestro Yes I Can Program Wrap-up

“What does wellness really mean?” This was the subject line of one of the wellness emails I got from Veestro Food’s founder, Monica, this past week. I liked the simplicity of her answer: “Simply put, it’s nothing more than small daily choices that lead into lifelong, very big changes.” Monica’s take on wellness got me […]
