My bestie sent me this video of a young woman reciting a poem about her family, but it’s more about how women get messages about eating, speaking up, and just creating space in homes, families, and our culture.

I explained that brown rice has more “muscle power” than white, but that we can order one order of brown rice avocado sushi and one order of white rice sushi and that’s a good compromise. He seemed okay with it.
