    In our household, we try to buy seasonal, local veggies. Luckily, we often visit my boyfriend's grandma who recently gace us carrots, tomatoes, peaches, onions, etc. She told us that this year's crops were much less than in the last years due to the drought and weather conditions. We are concerned what the following years will be like, so we'll plan for a whole year in advance to be prepared

    In the morning I don't use my phone normally when I go to work as I have little time. At work I eat without using my phone but when I'm at home dining, I usually watch something or a serie episode whern we're having dinner with my boyfriends. I look forward to is  because for dinner we are both finished with work and during dinner it's nice to watch the series. We only watch one episode normally.

    My boyfriends and I compost in our apartment. I also initiated composting at the pastry shop I work as a pastry chef. My plan is to improve the composting system, because I think that currently there is too much food waste and less brown waste (life leaves, etc.) in the composting area. Additionally, I think the compost needs to be turned and maintained in a better way. Therefore, I will spend today time to learn about composting and best practices at restaurants and pastry shops. 

    I would like to ask if it'll be possible to have a common composting area in the building I live, but I am afraid that this will be a more difficult goal to achieve. If you have any suggestions on how I can approach the commitee of the building and what I should include in my letter. Thank you in advance.

    I subscribed to the food related newsletter of Solutions Joournalism where weekly I am going to speand 10 minutes exploring agriculture and food solutions. I look forward to this newsletter as I am creating an online database of resources, literature, and contacts for my project, which intends to help enhance collaboration among food sector stakeholders and the entry of barries to the sector.

    I listened to the Soil: The Dirty Climate Solution podcast episode by How to save a Planet including many more resources on the topic. This year, I'm going to start my first herb garden. I hope to learn a lot about plants and soil.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Healing & Renewal Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?
