First recipe completed for the upcoming Chickpea Handbook/Cookbook! This is a Chana Dal & Sweet Potato Chowder, it’s off the charts delicious (nut free/soy free)! I’ve worked so hard on the chapters for this book which include the history, sprouting, growing (gardening), types, selecting & storing, nutrition, flour, cooking and a few others. I’m happy to be back in the kitchen full-time again bringing over 65 new recipes for the chickpea lovers + it will include all of the favorite chickpea recipes on the blog! I’m excited to soon share everything I’ve learned about chickpeas along with all the amazing recipes from breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner and dessert!

"Israel, Israel, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide": Bay Area Solidarity with Palestine | AmericaWakieWakie 

Today thousands marched in downtown San Francisco in protest of Israel’s on-going massacre and occupation of Palestinians in Gaza.

In the past two weeks violence perpetrated by the Israeli apartheid state has escalated with the onset of a ground offensive into Gaza, thus far claiming over 420 Palestinian lives — 80 percent of which are civilians, not the alleged target Hamas — and injuring 1,300 more. In addition, tens of thousands have been displaced but with effectively no where to go in the border-sealed stretch of land being bombarded.

Bay Area residents took to the streets to demand in unison with occupied Palestine an end to US aid to Israel and the end to Israeli apartheid. To honor those whose lives have been taken protesters participated in a die-in, the practice of lying or sitting down to simulate the people killed already. Small boxes draped in the Palestinian flag symbolized the children killed. 

Protesters chanted “Israel, Israel, you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide,” as well as “Free, free Palestine!”

This. This is important.






Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.

This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!
