Happy Friday! How was your week? I have to admit the weather in Minneapolis has been getting me down a bit. It’s been rainy and gray everyday this week. It’s been taking a toll on my mood. But in the spirit of this reminder….
I give you the Friday Five, complete with “Stuff From My Week That Made Me Happy!”
Lemon Blackberry Crumble Cake
Love the sound of this vegan and gluten-free Lemon and Blackberry Crumble Cake from Fork and Beans. Lemon and any fruit is such a summery combo. I’d love to make this for a summer picnic or cookout!
Fat-Shaming Government-Sponsored Milk Industry Ad
This is the latest in government-sponsored fat-shaming ads that target young children. They claim it’s in an effort to promote “healthy” eating habits, but at the end of the day, ads like this and this are ultimately designed to sell products and perpetuate fat-phobia. And I don’t think I have to tell my mostly vegan readership that milk is not necessarily a healthy beverage. Read more at Jezebel for some witty outrage.
Canada to Ban Gestation Crates
According to VegNews, Canada is drafting a law that will make it illegal to put pregnant momma pigs in gestation crates. Way to go, Canada!
Sweet Potato Burrito Spinach Wraps
I’ve been craving burritos for some reason (perhaps because I haven’t had a burrito in at least a year, probably longer!), so I did some Pinteresting to bookmark a recipe. I was happy to find The Almost Vegan’s quick and simple recipe for sweet potato burritos. Must make!
Stuff From My Week That Made Me Happy
delicious seasonal strawberries.
new youtube workout discoveries. (see my workout page for examples!)
phone calls with friends who understand.
finally watching season 5 of The Wire. (!)
this book. still.
Have you been craving any foods lately? What do you think about those milk ads? What made you happy this week?
