There was a lot of fall out post Hurricane Sandy. People throughout NJ and NYC are displaced. Homes have been destroyed, people are in apartments without heat or power during the snow storm, and supplies are running low. I was working at a shelter for a bit but have been called into work since. If you can, please contribute to a local collection. Here’s one to get you started:

In the meantime, I’ve been commuting between LIC and my Brooklyn neighborhood, trying to find a sense of routine. I work with the city and the sense of civil responsibility is heavily felt there. My local CSA donates to a local pantry. This week more than over, our donations have been needed. I’m happy to say that 4 very large bags of fresh, organic produce were donated last Thursday so shelters who can assist those who need a hand. This happens twice a week between June-November every year.

Show your love through food or other supplies that are desperately needed (Staten Island, NJ shore, Red Hook, the Rockaways). They need toilet paper, under garments, nonperishable food items, flashlights, and so much more. Open your home to a coworker who just needs a hot shower. Buy the cupcake from the cute kids who have no idea how tremendous of an impact the storm had.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
