The Deadly Truth About Trump’s Assault on Breastfeeding

The failure to understand that all of these things are the result of how we choose to arrange our society rather than a particular political party or the result of an election will only serve to perpetuate them and delay their remediation. 🙂🕊️❤️🌍🌌

What’s Cooking

Call it the easiest crowd-pleaser since chips and guacamole.

On a recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, temperatures reached into the nineties. During a visit to a cooking school, I was served a tall glass of agua fresca. These popular drinks of fresh fruit and water often strike me as too sweet, but this one really hit the spot: Pineapple and lime kept things tart and interesting, while the cool cucumber and mint swooped in with respite for the scorching temperatures.

I made my own in a blender when I returned home, using bottled pineapple juice, and discovered how delightful this drinkis when doubling as a cocktail mixer.—Maddie Oatman

Agua Fresca de Piña

Serves 4

1 cucumber
The juice of two limes
2 cups pineapple juice
Half a bunch of mint

Combine everything into a blender with one cup of water. Add more lime, mint, or juice to taste. Serve over ice, and with a shot and a half of mezcal or tequila per glass if you dare.
