Dear Sports Illustrated, Ethnic People Aren't Props for Your Swimsuit Issue

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is on newsstands now, which means it's time for the annual outcry against the way the magazine objectifies women. But this year, there's a second outcry -- against the magazine's decision to set the bikini-clad models against the backdrop of exotic-looking Asian and African people (people!) in native garb. ...more

A Gang Rape Ignites Protests Over India's Rape Culture

I was in church this morning with my parents and the pastor began to preach about society’s expectations and disapproval toward unwed mothers. Of course, he was talking about the Virgin Mary, who likely wasn’t a virgin -- but she was an unwed mother, and she was the scrutiny of her society. There are Biblical verses about Joseph considering breaking their betrothal because she was pregnant out of wedlock. Mary had to endure people writing her off as a woman who was suitable for marriage. She could have faced several punishments, including stoning to death. ...more

Grilled Haloumi With Tapenade

As a former vegan, I can relate to the idea of being the only herbivore at a carnivorous cookout, wondering what I would eat, feeling like I'd be stuck munching on carrot sticks and corn chips the entire night. Now that I eat—and enjoy—meat these days, I no longer fear the grill ... though I do try to limit the amount of meat I consume, mostly for health reasons. But that doesn't mean I have to give up grilling on the nights I want a lighter dinner. There are many veg-friendly grill options. Have you ever thought of grilling cheese?...more

Jamie Oliver Talks About Food Revolution Day and Why You Should Participate!

On Saturday, May 19, people all over the world will celebrate the first Food Revolution Day, a day of action designed to help everyone think about where their food comes from, consider making healthier, less-processed choices about what they put in their bodies, and gather together to share those ideas and meals as a community of cooks and eaters committed to eating well.

Spaghetti with Kale and Tomato Sauce from bell'alimento

I've been eating more kale than ever before this year—mostly in raw salads, which have been hitting the spot for me lately. But even as kale season is winding down, I'm always on the hunt for other interesting ways to use this nutritional powerhouse in my cooking. That's why I love this recipe for Spaghetti with Kale and Tomato Sauce from bell'alimento: It has very few ingredients (most of which I almost always have in my pantry), but packs a vitamin and mineral punch while also staying low in calories. It's also versatile—no kale at your local market? Just substitute arugula for a more peppery flavor but an equally healthy Meatless Monday option....more
