This clip from the movie Samsara makes a pretty clear case against factory-farmed meat, simply by showing how the animals are treated in life and death.
It’s graphic and upsetting, but it should be.
Chickens gathered by a combine and stuffed into tiny crates. Cows hooked up to rotating combination feeder/milkers. Lactating pigs held down in a supine position so litter after litter of piglets can feed on their swollen nipples.
This is not how food should be.

'Hot Chocolate' Sandwich Cookies
Folding cocoa powder and powdered sugar into whipped cream creates a filling with layers of hot chocolate-like flavor: milky, chocolatey, and marshmallow-y sweet.
That thing were you search “food gif” on tumblr and the first result is a gif set of yourself.

Ow, my feels.
I started a support group for my coworkers at Nerdist after last night’s Breaking Bad.
We all really needed it.
Sometimes, I’m an office hero.
My friend Adrienne started a great cooking show focusing on natural, healthy but fun recipes. Check it out.
This is one of my favorite recipes, since you can basically substitute any fruit you have on hand and make a delicious cobbler:
How to Make Plum Cherry Cobbler
(adapted from Heidi Swanson’s Tutti-Frutti Crumble in Super Natural Every Day)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
6 cups of assorted plums & cherries, sliced into chunks
1/4 cup white wine
Sift the flour, poppy seeds, oats, and sugar together in a large bowl. Pour melted butter over it, and stir to coat. Divide into three, and squeeze each third into a patty, using plastic wrap to hold each patty together. Freeze the three patties in plastic wrap for 10 minutes to harden them up.
Whisk together corn starch and sugar and pour over fruit in another large bowl. Stir to coat the sugar, then let sit for several minutes before pouring in the white wine.
Pour fruit mixture into bottom of a glass baking dish, then crumble the patties over the top. Keep large and small crumbles. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the topping is browned (I probably could’ve cooked mine a little longer).
Optional: Serve with vanilla ice cream.
