"This is one of the local coffee shops that has become an office of sorts and meeting spot for me this year. Honestly, I have so much appreciation for these independent coffee shops and businesses. They are our gathering places. More than that, they are the manifestation of a human or a few who decided to follow their unique paths, go against the grain, and start their own thing. In a city getting increasingly more expensive and gentrified, these small businesses and entrepreneurs are a source of hope. We don’t all have to conform. We can live and do business ethically. We can find and foster community. In short, tip your baristas and support your local businesses. ☕️" Thank you @kailahbharath ❤️ #Regram#FIXcoffeebikes
Good eats are always better together!
Of course, behind the scenes that also means lots of plates and cutlery to clean up - unless you use disposable ones. While that might have sounded appealing to me a few years ago, I've learned quite a bit about the side effects of disposable plastic since.
I won't start that conversation here, but let's just say that I've been looking for other options that don't include me slaving over the sink or feeling guilty about throwing plastic in the landfills. Enter @myecovita who makes awesome cutlery that is compostable, durable and beautiful!
Not only do you not have to sacrifice convenience or ease of use, but Ecovita makes it easy to switch to their products - my favorite part is that their mixed box comes with a built in drawer that you can pull out of the box and set at the buffet table (swipe to see). Anyways, just one of my recent favorite swaps. What have you guys switched in your home?

“Ti difenderò da incubi e tristezze
Ti riparerò da inganni e maldicenze
E ti abbraccerò per darti forza sempre
Ti darò certezze contro le paure
Per vedere il mondo oltre quelle alture
Non temere nulla io sarò al tuo fianco
Con il mio mantello asciugherò il tuo pianto
E amore mio grande amore che mi credi
Vinceremo contro tutti e resteremo in piedi
E resterò al tuo fianco fino a che vorrai
Ti difenderò da tutto, non temere mai
Non temere il drago
Fermerò il suo fuoco
Niente può colpirti dietro questo scudo
Lotterò con forza contro tutto il male
E quando cadrò tu non disperare
Per te io mi rialzerò

Honoring the injury. Something I learned deeply yesterday. Honoring the plant kingdom. Honoring the community. Honoring my self by asking for help and being humble and wide open to receive it. Saturday night I hurt my back in a gym workout. Sunday morning, market day...I dropped to the floor in tears as the muscle spasms around my tailbone continued. Called a dear friend of mine who went to herb school with me for help. Sometimes it’s a bit embarrassing asking for help given that deep down I know my own capabilities. When we are in pain, things become muffled and we often don’t know where to begin or what we need. I decided that pain medication was not the answer and turned to my herbs for assistance. I choose that morning to reach out to herbalists I work with personally. I want to thank Karman, who loaded both my car and his to prepare for the markets and offered research for some of the herbs I took that day. I want to thank Nancy for guiding me gently in strength for the morning and offering her wisdom of plant remedies. I want to thank Lauren for bringing me extra herbs I didn’t have readily available and working the booth for a while so that I could take some moments to relax my back after setting up. My heart is grateful for each and every vendor who offered their assistance and love so freely at the Bay Area farmers market. Without you, I may not have gotten through the day. Our vendors show their dedication to the community every week, their love and support with both my self and the rest of the BAFM family, as we are one beautiful family. I am shown that asking for help is a gift, one of vulnerability and of humbleness. And realize that when we help others, that kindness is always stored and offered right back to us in times of need. Being open to receive love and support is our internal work. Lisa Piper from Natural Living Co-Op, was also a huge support system yesterday (and always), helping me to load up after the market had ended and brought me a few things to help me get through the night. A very special 3, had spoken with me Conference style on the phone during my journey to the market, offering me counsel on the “unseen”...(continued in comments)
