Recipes to Make When Life Seems Too Hard

I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. In fact, I felt the same way yesterday too. While some days we all feel lower than others, the past few days my heart has been heavy because of what took place in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday.

As a rule I don’t talk about politics on this blog. However, I feel like the racism and hatred that raised its ugly head this weekend goes far beyond simple politics. It threatens people in all our communities, friends, and family. Honestly, it scares me that some people can hate that much.

It’s the goal of this blog to provide a safe space for people who want to dabble in the meatless world or vegan recipes as well as longtime vegans – and everyone in between. I want to be as inclusive as possible on this blog and in the world.

Many of you are jumping in to help in Charlottesville or your favorite organization. But if you are too frozen to think big, try one of these smaller actions: check in with some of your neighbors and friends to see how they are holding up. Go out of your way to say hello or help someone who’s different than you. Bring dinner to a neighbor, speak kindly to strangers, or invite people over to talk over a big pot of soup.

These small tasks won’t fix everything, and I’m not trying to imply that they will. I just know this world could use a little extra love and kindness right now.

Here are some recipe you can make when you are sad, depressed, or are just plain overworked. Remember you need to take care of yourself so you can help others.

Make a few of the appetizers below, then you can grab a quick bite straight from the fridge when you need to.
