Recs: What we're reading, buying, watching, etc. (Week of August 10, 2020)
1. I usually have a black thumb when it comes to plants, but I figured that I have enough time rn to keep a few alive. Some good choices for easy indoor care and natural air purifiers (and ones I'm trying to grow) include the marbled Queen pothos, Neantha Bella palm, and the Arboricola plant. Just in case my best intentions fail me, I got back up: an air plant and succulents.
2. One of my favorite healthy go-tos is baked sweet potato tossed in olive oil, pepper and Himalayan pink salt. Cut the potatoes into fourths, rub the olive oil on all sides and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. It's about 35-45 minutes at 425 degrees in the oven for a delicious snack, side or dessert!
3. Just signed the kid up for the Literati Book Club. You get five books a month, and keep only what you like. Books are curated based on recommendations from educators, publishers, librarians, parents and of course, kids. You have a week to test drive the books, and returning them is free. They also offer a quarterly box.
4. I did a shout out on Instagram for the Broken Bread series with Chef Roy Choi of Kogi BBQ fame currently on Amazon Prime Video. Roy tours his native Los Angeles talking to people working to bring healthy, nourishing food to their communities. It's an easy but very inspiring watch. My takeaway: Stop wasting so much damn food!
