Eating meat is delicious, it brings people together and according to our government it is also healthy. Dog fighting is also fun, it brings people together, and what is unhealthy about it? Nothing is, except for the dog. Why do we care so much more about dogs than we do about a pig, cow or chicken on a factory farm? If your child had a chicken and had fun poking its eyes and cutting its beak, I am sure you would stop this irrational behavior immediately. Yet, the chicken we often eat has had harsh treatment that we shrug off by saying “Well, I didn’t know this animal, so I don’t feel as bad.” Are we that apathetic towards the truth?”
Johnathan Safran Foer is one of my favorite my favorite Authors. He wrote a book called “Eating Animals” where he explores the many ways that animals are farmed. He brings the audience into the hellish life and death of 98% of farmed animals. A favorite quote form his book:
“What the meat industry figured out is that you don’t need healthy animals to make a profit. Sick animals are more profitable…Factory farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That’s the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying…We live in a world in which it’s conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood.”
– Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals. Chew on that.
For those of you with a green thumb, or are beginner gardeners, you might find today’s infographic on the concept of “companion planting” rather interesting. I myself, don’t have a great track record with growing fruits and vegetables, but with today’s chart maybe now I will!
Just like us, plants are living creatures, and they get along better with some more than others. Being surrounded by those you can’t stand can be suffocating for humans, and even fatal for plants. Look at today’s chart to find the right combination of plants to put in your garden together. It’s a plant compatibility chart, if you will, so your plants can not only grow, but thrive.
This gardening cheat-sheet shows plants that grow well together, combinations that help control pests and bugs, combinations that are good for your garden in general, and plants that should never go near each other.
Some of these pairings seem picture-esque, like sunflowers and corn–or a recipe for a delicious meal, like tomatoes and basil. But some pairings just don’t sound right…like strawberries and broccoli.
Check out today’s graphic and don’t force a match that isn’t meant to be. It might result in a combination that’s not exactly pleasing to your senses or your garden. [Via]
A few years ago, I was all about adding Tabasco hot sauce to my food. I even carried a little miniature bottle of it in my backpack in college. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I became obsessed with Sriracha. So much so, that I even posted an infographic about it. But alas, I have just recently become obsessed with a new hot sauce after a co-worker donated it to the office kitchen last week. It’s name is Tapatio hot sauce, and we have become inseparable. I have a bottle in my pantry, my purse, and at my work desk so that wherever I decide to eat, I’ll always be able to add a little Tapatio pizzazz to my meal. Never heard of Tapatio, or dare I say, even tried it?! If you’re ready to take your taste buds to a whole other level of flavor, I suggest you break off your commitment to your current hot sauce and give Tapatio a taste. You will not be disappointed!
