Food may be a contentious issue when the topic of self care arises but the sheer number of blogs dedicated to pizza shows that food is key to many individual’s conception of self care. This is a zine dedicated to all edible things related to self care. Self care is the act of improving your mental and physical well-being by making yourself a priority. Edible self care could involve a greasy pizza, a traditional family recipe, or a PB & Pickle sandwich. Write an ode to your favorite junk food and all the trials those chips have gotten you through. What do you look for in a great coffee shop? What food preparation tips do you have for those really hard days? How do you make everyday food look beautiful when beauty is what you need? What do you listen to while you cook? In what ways can your relationship to (and over) food be interpreted as self care?
We’re looking for stories, paintings, comics, illustrations, collages, recipes, photos, letters, lists, poetry, tips, DIY tutorials, music play lists, or anything else!
