1. Drink your greens
In case you’ve ever said you wanted to start drinking your greens, here’s our wildly well-received, 90-second video.
(We’re working on a couple new YouTube videos I think you’ll appreciate. Coming soon!)
Hit that thumbs up 👍 if you appreciate the video.

2. Deli Salad
It’s not the substance that matters. It’s the extras: pickles, onions, mayo, dijon, dill. Here’s the Chickpea Tuna Salad we made this week — so good.
3. Popular on Our Instagram This Week
Here’s a post from Shalva that’s getting a lot of engagement.

“We hit up the Minnesota State Fair this morning (my fave event of the year)! And amongst all of the cheese curds, milkshakes, and turkey legs we found this little gem. A local peach grilled to perfection 🍑 🔥 (we also ate a ton of fried food, don’t judge). On the car ride home we daydreamed about opening a food booth and only working 12 days a year. Plant-based foods are getting pretty popular, we might just do it someday!”

5. Articles, links, and other goodness we’re appreciating
The other day, I got a email from my mother asking us to share memories of her grandfather (my great grandfather) whose yahrzeit (anniversary of death) was that day. Highlights from her tribute: “I remember how he always gave me hand-written notes addressed to “#1 Granddaughter. I remember the smell of his pipe and going to his house for Friday night dinner.”
The point of me sharing this?
Everyday, I feel like I’m writing my obituary. What can I do today to make an impact on the next generation. Or, at the very least, how will I be remembered.
If you’re anything like me, this is it.
Make people feel special and loved. Teach them something.
And if you want to be remembered for more than making an impact, serve your loved ones good-smelling food.
