I haven’t given OATS much love over the past few months, but luckily, I’ve been writing about food elsewhere. If you haven’t seen them yet, please take the time to read two articles of mine in Mother Jones:
- The Mary Poppins of Raw Kale? one Mission elementary school tastes change– About how a nutrition educator in San Francisco’s Mission District navigates the challenges of teaching low-income students about nutrition, and helps families eat healthier on a budget.
- Is Kombucha Really Good for You? Wherein I try to make my own kombucha, weigh the miracle brew’s health benefits, and attempt to ignore warnings of carcinogenic mold in my home experiment.
- Also take a look at some shorter posts: A Map of Crowded Cows and Are These Cupcakes Racist?
And, good news for those craving delicious, simple vegetarian recipes: I’ve been keeping a list of some great stuff I’ve been cooking up, and I am going to make a big attempt to add some of them to the blog over christmas vacation. Just don’t get too mad if I end up making another batch of cardamom truffles instead (recipe to come).
