Despite illness, insomnia and uncertainty there is the pleasure of finding the perfect little black dress, two this week. Art and writing are permeating all the other senses, my kitchen is just a vitamix station as of late. I’m doing a public reading of something I’ve written stay tuned for details. #artlife #insomnia #lbd  (at My Little Pink House )

My entire day yesterday :/

My entire day yesterday :/

The case again “kid food.” I have a huge dislike for anything marketed toward children which is why I don’t and won’t ever own a television but in the case of food I don’t think it’s simply appalling I think it’s dangerous. Above is a pic of real baby carrots and the food industry’s idea of baby carrots marketed toward children. One is a real food product the other is not. Food industry baby carrots are large carrots cut and tumbled in machinery to look small and cute then washed in a chlorine bath because without their skins and after being cut they rot rather quickly. Ever wonder why these food industry baby carrots don’t come in huge open air bins in the produce section but instead come wrapped in plastic in the cold case? Because they’d rot straight away. Ever wonder why they dry that strange white color? Chlorine. I feel like my next book wants to be more in this vein and not really about recipes. And much like my last book I’m not interested in selling lots of copies and becoming popular - I don’t even have a website and for the first year or so after the book came out my instagram was private; but rather I’d like to get people talking about real food and  healthy children and get food industry baby carrots off the shelves in grocery stores.

I’ll be heading back to Black Mesa, Dineh (Navajo) Nation in May for my third trip supporting communities of elders on the reservation resisting coal mining, greed and relocation. I’ll be there cooking for the encampment and camping (with no running water and no electricity)(with my princess camping bed and as many pillows as will fit in the car). 
From Supportblackmesa.org -
“As a collective, we prioritize direct-on-land support in order to be grounded in the daily realities of land based struggles. We strive for a decolonization that includes an abdication of power over Native lands by the U.S. government and corporations and a practice of solidarity which takes responsibility for our role as beneficiaries of ongoing settler colonialism in order to dismantle settler privilege.” #nomorerelocation #dinehnation 

So excited! Follow my journey :)
