Friday Five

Happy Friday! If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed that I was mysteriously absent on my usual Wednesday posting day. Well, I’m afraid to report that this might be the norm for a little while. I am in the middle of a really intense and busy time at work/school (being on the job market/trying to finish my diss/trying to publish articles/being on committees/teaching assisting), plus finishing up my extensions yoga program, plus starting up my weekly volunteering at the prison. This blog has always been a source of stress-relief and fun, so the moment posting feels stressful, I know I have to back off.

None of this is to say that I’m taking a major hiatus, just that posting will probably be more infrequent. I trust that you’ll survive. ;) BUT! I’d love to fill some of my lulls with guest posts. If you’re interested in guest posting, comment or email me (!

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, on to the good stuff. The internet, as usual, was good to us this week….

1. Raw Caramel Apple Pie

I don’t even know what there is to say about this delicious sounding recipe from One Green Planet. Raw Caramel Apple Pie, please be mine.

2. Bad Egg

I really try not to be a preachy vegan on the blog (nor in real life), but I had to post this article about eggs. A friend sent this to me and I thought it was worth sharing to highlight some of the health consequences of eating too many eggs.

3. Organic Debates, Continued

Remember a few weeks ago when there was a bunch of news around the study that said organic foods are no more nutritious than conventional? Well, in case you missed it on my FB, there is now information that reveals that Monstanto and Cargill may have funded that study. Sign the petition to say that corporations should not sway science!

And here’s another  bad-ass rebuttal. Best line: Our fantasy that we can use our technological prowess to completely divorce ourselves from our material, physical reality is just that—a fantasy. We eat by the grace of nature, not by the grace of Monsanto.

4. That’s a Wrap!

Food52 hosted a post from Gena on how to make a collard wrap! If you’ve ever drooled over beautiful raw collard wraps on food blogs, but felt too intimidated to try it yourself, this is for you! (And by ‘you,’ I mean ‘me’).

5. Remedy

When you’re going through a stressful time, like I am now, you should probably just step away from your to-do list and watch this video. Several times. Then everything will be better, at least for a couple minutes:


Have a great weekend!

Have you ever made collard wraps? How cute was that video? What do you do to relieve stress? Want to be a guest blogger?

    Wowza! First of all, that egg article just blew my mind. ONE EGG is like eating a Thickburger from Hardees?? Are you kidding me??? Now I have to stop eating eggs AND Hardees Thickburgers! Haha, I kid, of course. Anyway, this Friday Five was packed with great stuff — that raw pie looks AMAZE-balls, and those baby boars are so damn cute — but what was with that hairless cat that shows up at the end of the video? It kinda just slinks around like it’s plotting something evil…

    Also, OBVI I’d love to guest post any time! XO. Have a great weekend.
