New Scones for this Bird

I apologize for the delay in the Weekly Veggie Update and lack of new recipes! I’m very proud to say that I made a major life decision last month- one that I needed to do but also found that there was no better time than now!

At my previous job, I was planning events and working with a great city agency/non-profit (not in food). However, the content wasn’t my passion. I didn’t wake up in the morning pumped about it. While it was great and I learned so much, I knew there was an end date in sight. I am grateful I had that opportunity; it prepared me for so many other things and I met incredible people.

Anyway, via Good Food Jobs, I found two new jobs in the food world (there is hope!) I interviewed with one job for a different position and was offered a job as a menu planner. I accepted another offer from the city’s largest greenmarket network and am now spending half of my week helping local producers sell their goods and helping families with food stamps.

Needless to say, I’ve been rather busy with all of this transitioning! I’m finding my new routine and am going to make more time to update on here. I want to share the things I learn through my jobs, my interactions, and my crazy dreams (that leave me very hungry in the morning!).

I will have a couple of veggie updates this week. You’ll probably see some asparagus, radishes, or fiddleheads. Let me know what you’d like to see or if you have any delicious recipes to share!

Thank you so much for your patience and continued support! Namaste.

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
