#Ingles (para hisbanoablantes)
I'm white, nonbinary, autistic and neurodivergent, and recently married, currently living on land stolen from the Miami. I'm trying to get out of a marketing career now that I've realized how deeply unethical marketing is, but I still need money to live in this capitalist hellscape so I'm still doing that while trying to find something else.
I've only been a leftist for a little over a year, so I'm not always up on the theory, but I'm trying to learn. I'm trying to move things from theory into actual action, but I'm broke and chronically ill so I feel limited in what I can do. I'm personally interested in gardening, sewing and fibercrafts, and creating community resources. I work best in a support role - I would be overwhelmed and anxious in a protest, but I'd be happy to cook food and bring it to the protesters.
If you have any recommendations for who to follow on here, please let me know! I'm new and trying to fill up my feed.

One cookbook I liked that's specifically all just recipes for on a Food Stamps budget is "Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a Day," by Leanne Brown. It's a NYT Bestseller... and the author made it available for free as a PDF: https://cookbooks.leannebrown.com/good-and-cheap.pdf
The recipes are quick and easy for beginner cooks, and they're focused around making sure you get the healthiest *and* tastiest food staples, which can be tough to figure out on such a tight budget.
I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."
I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)
vegetarian food and meat substitutes – a long thread Show more
So whether or not you're vegetarian or vegan, cutting down on your meat intake is a good idea for various reasons – high among them being environmental concerns and overuse of antibiotics on farms. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
The thing is, some cultures have been using meat substitutes in food for centuries. Either for religious reasons, like some schools of Buddhism, or among people who don't always have access to meat. So it can be worth following their example.
Humans are not evolved to be herbivores, and I really don't like all the people who say "go vegan" without also telling people exactly what that means. So in case anyone finds it useful, here's a little thread about meat substitutes to include in your diet, and nutrients to make sure you're getting enough of!
The invention of sequential time = the invention of the end of time.
So I'm going to a local meeting tonight about climate crisis resiliency and so i went through the IPCC Summary for Policy Makers and translated the key points into regular people language:
We're in for between 0.8 to 1.2 C warming, and will pass 1.5 C if we don't do something.
Old emissions are gonna have effects for a long long time.
Staying below 1.5 would be less-bad than going above it. But honestly still pretty bad.
Approaching 1.5 is still gonna drastically change our lives. 1/x
Our latest episode of #ArchaeoAnimals is now live! We talk about chickens, why they’re so fascinating in the archaeological record, and then possible ruin our own integrity with bad chicken jokes.
