  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Work-Life Balance
    How does practicing a work-life balance create a more sustainable life for you? How might it contribute to sustainability more broadly?

    Creating and actually practicing a work life balance is important also for your mental health and help reduce the burn out feeling that can be created by trying to "squeeze" it all in.
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Make Zero-Waste Meals
    How did you incorporate using an entire vegetable (skins, peels, tops, and stalks) during one of your meal preps? What's something new you're going to try that is a zero-waste meal practice?

    I fry potatoes with skins included.  I will try that same technique cooking yams in a future meal. 
  • Reflection Question
