Happy Friday! I spent my Friday morning in blissful silence, working on some lovely little charts. My brother is not the best at organizing a good shopping list, and as a result is very often out of food. I think perhaps a lot of people struggle with this, so I created a menu-planning sheet for each week and a grocery list. There are a few staples already written in, and some memory jogging ideas. I’ll be adding them later when I figure out how to upload a pdf.
We’ve had some snow here, which has given me some time to work on some artwork again.
Some things I’m into this week:
A really good article about living green and mixing that with a compassionate lifestyle.
This pretty cool story about a man planting a forest.
I forgot about the Lumineers, and this song, which is pretty good.
I like this little chart about eating and eating well.
I made this little sesame noodle bowl a week or so ago. Its easy and fast and pretty delicious as a cold lunch the next day. I like using buckwheat and sweet potato soba noodles, but you can use any kind of noodle and veggie combination.
