What to read for this week.

It's Friday!

As with last week, I am trying to make a Friday reading list happen every Friday.  These following links and reads are things that I thought were pretty good in terms of thoughtfulness, crafty, and fun.  Check them out.

Why Americans Stopped Eating their own seafood.

I saw this on yahoo food about a book, that I will soon pick up, called "American Catch" by Paul Greenberg.  It reports that 91% of our seafood comes from over seas from places like Thailand and around South East Asia for the majority of the more commonly eaten seafood like shrimp. 

It’s a great line. But Greenberg’s question also underpins the central issue plaguing the national seafood industry: Americans aren’t eating from their own waters, and it’s hurting us on both environmental and economic fronts.

Can you ever have too much dumplings?  What if you went to a dumpling eating competition?  This youtube channel, Off The Great Wall, hosted such challenge.  Check out the video and subscribe.  My own personal dumpling best is 12 soup dumplings.

Another youtube video to check out, and subscribe, Ann made a video about making your own drinkable red white and blue drink.  Remember those rocket popsicles?  You do, don't you?  Those are so very nostalgic for all of us, in the US, growing up.  Especially since July 4th is next week!

I am not sure about this one, but something worth watching.  Well if you aren't squeamish.  From AsapScience, on youtube, vlogs about should we all be eating insects?  While I am pretty squeamish about eating insects, I mean just read the last blog entry on the weird things that I have ate, it is something to consider and watch.  Sustainably it does bring up some really good points.

On Fstoppers, there is an article about going back to living simply that is told through photographs.  Check it out.  Antoine Bruy Documents Individuals Who Have Abandoned Society for the Simplicity of Wilderness.  While I think of just living off the land and without trinkets, I personally would think it would be tough considering that modern photography needs cameras and a computer to create those images.  But, I am not romanticizing this, the individuals in these photo series dropped modern world for simplicity and peace. Check it out.

On the same lines of freedom and living off the land, this photographer, Sebastian Dahl, has a photographic series in where he has hitchhiked from Oslo to Beirut. 

I hope you enjoy this weeks reads and videos!
