One of my granola goals was to become more active in sustainable community events and activities. I realize that in just over a week, I’ve already started to work towards those goals.
Tonight, I will be attending a speaking engagement and reception hosted by Blacks in Green where Dr. Greg Watson will be the guest speaker. Dr. Watson is the Senior Adviser for Clean Energy Technology within the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and the Vice President for Sustainable Development with the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative…amongst many other things.
This weekend…tonight actually after the Dr. Watson event, I will be making a vegan black bean soup. Now I realize many of the meals I eat are vegetarian with a high percentage of them even being vegan. Therefore I’m on the right track. But what i want is to be more intentional about making vegan meals. And after calculating my carbon diet I’d love to steer more towards a vegan approach to life with hints of raw food. Therefore I’m going to start using some of the recipes in four interesting cookbooks that I own.
This weekend I’m also looking forward to posting an interview with my granola friend Sam as well as starting to process how I can become an eco-conscious theater artist and what that means for me as a writer and stage manager.
