Reading Time: 2 minutes

Reading favourites: Book - Buddhism for Meat Eaters by author: Josephine Moon

Are you a meat eater who loves animals? Are you an environmentally and ethically conscious person who feels a tad uncomfortable eating meat? Author Josephine Moon herself struggled with this for many years. Her conundrum led her to write Buddhism for Meat Eaters – a practical book that encourages readers to be more mindful about their choices, without judging them. You can eat meat and still be ethical and guilt-free by making wiser decisions on how you live your life and consume your food – and this book helps you do that!

Listening favourites: Podcast called "The Intersection" by journalists - Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian

The selling point of The Intersection is right there in its set-up – it’s a podcast with two journalists (Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian) taking us on a journey through India’s uber-rich history and culture while discussing all sorts of interesting, important and sometimes quirky topics through lots of research, interviews and anecdotes. Topics include our plastic addiction, lab-grown meat, and the science of the stampede (a topic they covered after the deadly stampede at Mumbai’s Elphinstone Bridge in 2017). Episodes come out every fortnight and the knowledge drop is absolutely legit!

Eating favourites: Bottle of Spice Zen's ginger juice

Like your ginger chai? Then try Spice Zen’s ginger juice. Cold-pressed from fresh, raw, whole organic ginger root grown right here in Australia, this 100% ginger juice contains no preservatives or additives. It mixes easily in beverages and has a smooth texture and a spicy, earthy, pungent flavour. Down it as a shot in the morning or add to a cold or warm drink, juice or smoothies. Or splash it on your stir fry, salads, marinades, seafood or meat; use it in baking, or simply freeze the juice as cubes.

Watching favourites: A poster of a Netflix show called - "Little Things"

Set in Mumbai, Little Things, a Netflix show is a story of a young couple living together. Between their work, friends, chores and relationship, it’s a snapshot of millennial life that resonates deeply. Starring Mithila Palkar and Dhruv Sehgal, it’s a refreshing look at life in an age that sometimes seems saturated with Instagram posts, brunches and constant FOMO. Whether it’s sitting back and watching TV, or spending a quiet evening reading, the show is a reminder to take life slow, and enjoy and savour these “little things”.
