Cook the Book: 'Bi-Rite Market's Eat Good Food'

there is a little produce and minor grocery near me that I love. It is small and the produce is often local, always cheap and looking fresh. the meat and bakery are cash only, which is weird to this girl of the age of plastic, but it gives a nice old-timey feel to shopping!

Charting My Cravings During Vegan Month

this is so funny to me! I commend your efforts and all others who have commented. I guess I am the exception to the rules? I didn't eat meat for a long time and at my vegetarian stage, my doctor tested me for AIDS my blood labs were so off! Now, I eat pork and beef occasionally and feel so much better, look a hell of a lot better, and am not upset about it. Obviously, I do my best to only eat animals who had a "happy life" and refuse to eat any factory-farmed beings. Still, it is interesting how different people can be!
