This photo (and video of the lecture below) is from the women of color food justice and self-care panel. This took place at the Conference Against Environmental Racism at the University of Oregon-Eugene, on May 18 2013. The featured critical thinkers are Dr. A.

Over the past few years, I have blogged about whiteness, racism, and veganism in a way that is mindful, holistic, and critical. Despite my attempts to present such 'sensitive' issues in scholarly and mindful ways, I have experienced comments that are downright violent and full of hateful rage from white-identified people. Most recently, someone posted a response to my 2012 blog article about the racial politics of dread lock wearing and cultural appropriation.
In this video, I suggest several plant based solutions to raise a pregnant woman's low iron levels. This is particularly helpful for those of you searching for non-animal based options.
List of Ingredients You'll Need:
- Floradix Iron + Herbs Liquid Extract Formula 17floz
- World Organic Chlorophyll Liquid 16 Oz
- A drink high in vitamin C, such as orange juice or grapefruit juice.
1. High protein diet (70-90g per day if you are lactating)
2. Diet high in the 'good' fats, such as avocados, coconut, and walnuts.
4. Maca Root. 1 tsp per day, in the morning, mixed in a smoothie or cooled down hot cereal, or some yogurt. Don't take on an empty stomach, it could irritate it. Don't take after 3pm or you may not sleep.
Today it became official: I am Dr. Amie "Breeze" Harper. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this possible.

A few announcements February 7, 2013
Hi! Noemi here, a few announcements if you will.
I have finished two new zines, The Blue Metal Kettle and Lines from Acedia to Apatheia
I’m looking for collaborators, zines and more for a new project S.alt Media Review, that reviews zines and projects by people of color. I’m also working on a yummy baked sweets vegan recipe zine, which I’ll be creating a kickstarter to fund the printing costs. I’ll announce it when I have that ready to go. The cover will be done by an amazing Chicana artist who also does tattoos, she’s done my Hermana,Resist and “create” typewriter tattoos. She’s vegan too
Food Porn or Food Erotica....? Sistah Vegan in Europe Part I January 2, 2013
I have to admit that I am not a fan of the use of 'porn' in describing food. But, that is just me. I prefer the word 'erotica' instead so....
Today I will be kicking off my Sistah Vegan in Europe series with "Food Erotica" as a way to share my experiences in Europe. Today I share with you Salzburg, Austria.
I have a New Year's resolution suggestion for vegans of the status quo in the USA:
What does this entail? Well, this has a very long and broad answer, but for the sake of this blog I'm going to try to keep it short and simple:
(1) Please do not approach non-white people as if eating vegetables is a new idea you would like to share with us.
"Spirulina helps me poop": Raising my babies on a decolonizing diet inspired by Queen Afua October 24, 2012
I am teaching Eva Luna some Queen Afua inspired nutrition for her womb-health now. She is 14 months old.
I tell her every morning that kale is the food of the goddess. I tell her that I try to decolonize my womb with raw green smoothies. She doesn't know what I mean, but she will soon.
I am hoping that she will appreciate the Afrowomanist healing knowledge I give her.
