    This Grocery Delivery Service Helps Me Eat Healthier Meals in Less Than 20 Minutes

    As is the case in a lot of America, my household is capable of generating quite a bit of food waste. It’s unintentional, of course, and the impact of such waste on the environment is greatly curbed by Seattle’s composting program. But it’s still a fact of life that irks me, if for no other reason that it’s money (and potential) wasted. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 30 to 40 percent of the food supply is wasted each year; that’s unfathomable in a country where many also struggle with food or financial insecurity. And sure, individual-level solutions   Read More

    Want to Try a Meal Prep Service? These Black Chefs Have You Covered

    They check all the marks for freshness, flavor, and elevating Blackness in the food industry.

    J.D. Snead calls the Michelin Minivan a “quarantine baby.” Before the pandemic started, Snead cooked at Kasbah — a Middle Eastern eatery in midtown — and bartended at the Shady Lady saloon. But like many workers in the restaurant industry, he was out of a job once the stay-at-home order arrived in mid-March. “I just kept cooking for my sanity,” said Snead. He made chicken adobo, a dish that pays homage to his Filipino-Scottish roots; he ventured into Italian food, Hawaiian poke and Korean barbecue. Soon, he realized he could be “selling these plates just to have some stream of   Read More
