Vegans Should Eat Eggs

by Anaïs Schlienger https://medium.com/illumination/why-vegans-should-eat-eggs-49a140d0f8e0 Excerpts: How did I come to this realization? My father has hens, he lives in a small city and has a big garden. He loves his hens with all his heart. He cooks rice especially for them, takes the time to chop the vegetables’ peelings for them and adds oats in their food. They are the happiest as they can be.

Self-Care in a Pandemic

How to Manage Self-Care During COVID-19 by Stephanie Haywood Lately, you may have heard a reference or two to Maslov’s Hierarchy of Needs. It’s a simple but powerful psychological idea - before we can focus on creativity, actualization, or even joy, we must focus on survival. Right now, the whole world is stuck at the bottom of this hierarchy: We are all in survival mode. To put it lightly, this isn’t great for us. However, you can make life easier by recognizing this and addressing your survival [...]

Letter to the Editor: Promote Cultured Meat to End Animal Slaughter

To the editor, President-elect Joe Biden, who won the endorsement of the Humane Society Legislative Fund, should support federal funding for cultured-meat research. For readers who aren't aware, cultured-meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals. There is no greater crime than what we do to nonhumans in food production. We kill over a trillion aquatic and land creatures every year for this purpose. According to the Population Reference Bureau, only about 107 billion humans have ever lived. The amount of suffering our food system produces is [...]

“Fortified” and “Enriched” Foods try to Put Back what Processing and Refining Took Out

Fortified and Enriched Foods https://www.healthline.com/health/food-nutrition/fortified-and-enriched-foods In some cases, fortified or enriched foods are helpful. They can fill in the gaps and increase a particular vitamin and mineral consumption that would otherwise be less than the recommended value. But it’s also easy to get too much. These foods can contribute to nutrient overdoses. Be aware of how much of each nutrient you are eating. Don’t forget to include foods that don’t come with a nutrition label, like dark leafy greens. Keep an eye on serving sizes to make [...]

How To Make Easy Kimchi at Home by Emily Han https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-easy-kimchi-at-home-189390 The first few times I tried kimchi it was not, I must admit, my favorite food. Then I met my Korean-American partner, Gregory, moved in with his mom — a superb cook — and within a few months I was wholly converted. These days my mouth waters at the slightest whiff of pungent, fermented cabbage and I’ll eat it with everything from fried rice to dumplings, summer rolls, or, ahem, straight out of the jar. I [...]
