Confession: I have recently started to drink coffee. I know- I only started to drink coffee at eighteen years old, and am a complete novice to the entire concept of coffee. However, I find myself surrounded by several questions, thoughts, and situations of dependence on the subject. My relationship with coffee, or rather all things caffeinated, began on March 22nd of 2012. I got back … Continue reading Coffee Coffee… Buzz Buzz Buzz
Hi everyone! Summer is right around the corner, and it seems that everyone is talking about diets, exercise, and the beach. You know that’s not how Adventurously Organic rolls though. Sustainability, as a “diet,” is completely different from “dieting.” That being said, recently, a huge change happened in how my diet reflected sustainability. I think that more than a couple of times, I have mentioned … Continue reading The Refined Sugar Experiment
Last year, I began volunteering at a local urban farm. When I started, I thought I knew everything about the history of the environmental movement. However, on my first day, I learned more about the roots of environmentalism in the first five minutes of volunteering than I learned reading phony environmentalist articles from my poorly matched Facebook feed. It turns out that America’s modern environmentalist … Continue reading Sustainability in Westchester: Composting
My high school has a program called Senior Options, where students work at an internship during their final two months instead of sitting in class. Silly me chose an internship that is an hour and a half away, and as a result, portable breakfasts have become necessary. There is always a degree of tediousness associated with to-go meal prep. Having to leave my house at … Continue reading Recipe: Berry Chia Coconut Yogurt Bowl
Sustainability is one of those words that gets tossed around a lot in environmental discussions. At its most basic definition, sustainability is the ability to be maintained. But what does that mean in environmental context? Essentially, environmental sustainability is the idea that the technology and policies that we create should a) not harm the environment and b) be renewable and therefore readily available without fear … Continue reading Sustainable Sourcing: What is Sustainability Anyway, and Why Does it Apply to Food?
I try and plan my weekends so that Sunday afternoons are the least stressful parts, but somehow that never works. It is 4 PM, and I sit here, eating Teddie peanut butter from the jar with a spoon, blogging instead of completing my other 100 assignments. Maybe one day I will learn to actually do my work earlier on. Anyway, as I trek through the … Continue reading Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothies!
Hi everyone! Happy February! As many of you know, I care a lot about food sourcing and food’s general purpose in life. Food gives us energy, and allows us to function, thrive, and progress as a species. However, the number of misconceptions that surround food is astronomical, and a couple of blog posts probably won’t change that. Many family members and friends have recently been … Continue reading February Announcement
Martha Stewart is one of three of my female role models. I know- she went to prison. But in my world, anything Martha Stewart does is justifiable (even insider trading) because her cakes, cards, and website are beautifully orderly. When Martha Stewart declared that the dish of 2016 was the bowl, I had to understand why. I started eating in bowls more, and even went … Continue reading Winter Bowls
Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone’s holidays were restful and fun, and that people are easing into the new work phases. I know my eyes are being ripped apart assignment after assignment. I am so excited for what the blog accomplished during its initial months, as well as the new additions to the blog this year. The first guest post on the blog will be … Continue reading Happy New Year + First Guest Post
8:34 PM- Sunday, December 18th I have been a bad blogger. My last post was what… 2 weeks ago? For this, I am sorry. But, while I have been writing on other domains, some amazing things have been happening. Christmas is in 7 days!!!! Every year, Christmas is that one day where good work, kindness, and love are reality rather than expectations. But this year … Continue reading Getting into the Christmas Spirit + Recipes
