Lots of rain in these parts! Lots of books, lots of polishing of final term papers, humidity, smoothies, spring rains. Fortunately, i love all of the above so I’m more than content. 772 more words

Lemon, Almond and Pistachio Loaf Cakes

Sometimes baking is all the better for a close connection with nature. I remember several years ago, cycling to a nearby farm from my parents’ house to buy duck eggs, then collecting primroses out in the woods to be painted and sugared at home. 297 more words

Rachel in Veganland reblogged this on Rachel in Veganland and commented:

" In “body positive” campaigns promoted by advertisers, we are inspired to believe that it is OK to accept any womyn’s body, as long as it is feminine, healthy, and still adheres to most of our standard beauty conventions. While watching an advertisement for soap, we are given a look into a stranger’s medicine cabinet. " I very rarely "reblog" things here on Veganland, but this is just too great not to share. I've always been wary of advertising campaigns such as the Dove Real Beauty schtick. (My undergraduate Women's Studies 101 professor pointed out that the company is owned by the same folks as Axe Body Spray which really put me in perspective.) This article is beautifully written, provides great additional links and successfully problematizes the fetishization of the curvy body, one that is still idealized and only of a certain physical, racial, and "healthy" type. This fits in perfectly with my series "The (Vegan) Body."
