Sustainable Fishing Post-Pandemic: How Technology is Driving Change

Sustainable Fishing Post-Pandemic: How Technology is Driving Change

Madison Mossman Just now·4 min read Fishing at sunset. Photo via Phil Dimashq No matter what winter feels like in San Diego, nothing beats the warm dose of Vitamin D that I feel in the morning as I drag my kayak and five-pound fishing pole down to the Carlsbad Lagoon. While many of us remain in various stages of the stay-at-home mandates issued worldwide, fishing has given me plenty of opportunities to spend some time out in nature and celebrate the ocean for all the beautiful things it has to offer. On top of that, one of the most powerful parts of the sport is the shared emotions of catching (or not catching) a fish that creates a strong sense of purpose for many people who are yearning for meaningful relationships during this unprecedented time. Nonetheless, the sport has also enabled me to filter out unnecessary aspects of my life and concentrate on everything that is — whether its day-to-day happiness or life-changing decisions. While the majority of society spends most of their time subconsciously scrolling through their social media or directing their attention to mood-boosting apps during COVID-19, the actual act of fishing and being “in the zone” has given...

Buffets Are Better with a Friend

Buffets Are Better with a Friend
Photo taken by the author The first few times I went out to eat at a restaurant by myself, I felt embarrassed when the host or hostess would ask, “Table for one?” because I would have to mumble, “Yes.” When I was a kid, it was cool and exciting for me to do things alone because it showed that I was *growing up*. But when I became an actual grown-up, I found it neither cool nor exciting to do things alone because the insecure little voice in my head thought people would look at me in pity and think, Look at this chubby sad girl eating a meal and two appetizers by herself. What a pathetic loser. Thankfully, now, I’m (mostly) over this ridiculous fear, and I’ve realized that most people are too busy eating their own damn food to notice the solitary, obviously single Asian girl in the corner stuffing her face. But I still feel a mild hint of embarrassment when I go to buffets by myself because not only am I unaccompanied by a friend or beau, but I’m also about to indulge in a more-than-mildly-disgusting act of gluttony. When it comes to buffets, I don’t believe in...

Interview with Reem Kassis | The Arabesque Table

Interview with Reem Kassis | The Arabesque Table

Suzy Chase Just now·25 min read Intro: Welcome to the number one cookbook podcast, Cookery by the Book with Suzy Chase. She’s just a home cook in New York City sitting at her dining room table, talking to cookbook authors. Reem Kassis: My name is Reem Kassis and I’m the author of The Palestinian Table and more recently The Arabesque Table. Suzy Chase: I’m so happy you’re back. So the last time you were on the cookbook podcast was 2017 with The Palestinian Table where you use the power of food and storytelling to share the Palestinian narrative with the world. Today, I’m thrilled to chat with you about your second cookbook, The Arabesque Table, all about the evolving cross-cultural food of the Arab world. Let’s start off with you talking a little bit about doing three years of recipe research for this cookbook. Reem Kassis: You’re right. It was very long, you know, the process of from getting the idea to researching it, to ultimately the end product but it was also fascinating because what I started out with was very different from the book that I ended up with. Um, you know, initially I think my desire was to...

“The Healthy School Food- Lady”

“The Healthy School Food- Lady”

Kayla Nova Just now·4 min read Mrs. Michelle Obama, former First Lady of the United States from 2009 until 2017, is an organizer who I’ve come to appreciate for a multitude of reasons. I often noted her grace, big smile, warm nature, and firm stance. I noticed how she always looked put together making it evident that she always had a plan. I like people who always have plans, even if the plan is that I’m not going to do anything , the time is accounted for, I’ve adopted that myself when the coronavirus took me out of school. She grew up in Chicago, Illinois, born in 1964, graduated from Princeton University in 1985 and from Harvard Law School in 1988, aside from being the former First Lady, she is known as an author, attorney and mother. To persons my age, she is known for something she did during her terms but that most parents and adults might not have known of, or know little of. My classmates called her “The Healthy School Food -Lady”. “The Healthy School Food- Lady” was disliked because up until her changes, our school tasted better, we had more options, we had sweeter options, we had...

Know The Origin Of The Most-Popular Foods

Know The Origin Of The Most-Popular Foods
foodiemoodie Just now·7 min read Have you ever wonder where your favourite foods came from? You’d be surprised to discover the origins behind some of the most popular foods in the world. Introducing the most-popular foods by country seemed like a great topic for me to write about today. We love to write about food and drink. We love to celebrate the good stuff. Here I thought I would explore something that lies extremely close to my heart and stomach! Think of the many times you’ve traveled or gone on vacation. You’ll notice that your food experience has had an impact on your overall travel experience. Many people have made their destination choices based on food interests. (Just like me �Š) Every region has its signature dish. Our foods like lifestyle are affected by our traditions and culture. What is the most famous food from different countries around the world? What are the must eats and must-drinks? Which country has the best food? What do you think? Here’s a list for you guys. Let’s start! Fair warning: This article is best read when not on an empty stomach. Turkish coffee is perhaps its best-known and most recognisable. Coffee was first introduced...

How Long It Actually Takes To Get In Shape For Summer — Day 44

How Long It Actually Takes To Get In Shape For Summer — Day 44

Max Ignatius Atlas Just now·4 min read I had planned to sleep in this morning since I had a few hours time owed, but I woke up early anyway. I guess it’s become a habit now to get up at the break of dawn, either that or I’m just glad to have some time to myself-yesterday was ridiculously hectic. I ran some errands after I got up and then went for a short walk. Once I returned home I got a sudden craving for something sweet, so I decided to cut my losses and eat one of the granola bars I had stocked in my work bag. I didn’t want to eat these if I didn’t have to, but my kids hadn’t eaten the candy bar I gave them yet, and I’m not exactly proud to say that I would’ve likely taken in back if I didn’t quell the craving then and there. Had a great workout session this evening. In addition to doing cardio, I decided I was going to steadily increase how heavy I’m lifting and decrease rest time in between sets. I was absolutely exhausted by the end, but I’m sure that it was worth it. I want...

Counting down the hours for our favorite comfort foods

Counting down the hours for our favorite comfort foods

Just now·4 min read A survey of 2,000 general population Americans found 68% of people look forward to their weekend eats due to having a stressful week. Photo by mahyar motebassem on Unsplash Two-thirds of Americans say their weekend meals are their “reward” for getting through another week, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 general population Americans found 68% of people look forward to their weekend eats due to having a stressful week. Two out of five (44%) said they eat better quality food on the weekends than they do during the weekdays. More than half (55%) of Americans believe eating can act as a form of therapy. Commissioned by Screamin’ Sicilian Pizza and conducted by OnePoll, the study found 59% feel too tired at the end of the day to actually cook anything. Another 33% said they don’t want to cook because they can never decide what to eat, while 31% just don’t want to do dishes. A major contributing factor is how stressed people feel. Forty-three percent feel pushed to their absolute limits by the time Friday comes around. Nearly as many (44%) feel so stressed, they’ll count down the hours until the weekend. Half of Americans...

Day 79–100 Days 100 Ways To A Healthy Relationship With Food

Day 79–100 Days 100 Ways To A Healthy Relationship With Food
Photo by Thiago Matos from Pexels Yesterday I took a step backwards. I allowed some old unhelpful habits to creep back in: Lying to myselfUsing food or drink as an emotional crutch These are issues as old as the hills in my relationship with food, and probably for many others. These are mental issues. They don’t get sorted overnight. Or even in 79 days or nights. If you have any interest in mental health, or any little feeling that you might have mental health issues, I strongly recommend you visit the Mind UK website. Mind is a UK mental healthy charity and their pages are informative and helpful. There’s so much stigma around even just that phrase — mental health. I don’t know why. There’s no stigma around physical health. The brain is part of our body, just like an arm or a leg. “Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the ways you’re frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel...
