Cake day: September 29th, 2023

  • It’s hugely dependent on a lot of factors but what I can say for sure that’s helped for me personally:

    • having more locally sourced options like farmers markets and local butchers
    • not having to commute to work every day (the extra time and energy saved means I’m much more willing to cook something healthy)
    • a healthier work/life balance
    • making more money… Buying local isn’t cheap.

    I know veggies, even when they’re not local, are cheaper than a lot of processed food but not when we’re talking convenience and energy spent. Having the energy to prep and cook fresh produce, as well as a local market within walking distance have been the biggest factors for me.

    I know I’m a pessimist but I feel like this is another one of those issues where we take the mask off and it’s just that monster capitalism underneath.
