Snacking. Artichoke, roasted garlic, figs, olives, italian cheeses, stuffed pepper, bread and some olive oil and balsamic vinegar... Super healthy. My italian soul is happy. #italians#snacktime#cheese#figs#nomnomnom
Did you even meal prep Monday if it doesn't make the gram?➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ one less thing to worry about each week 👍🏼👍🏼 I used to 'bulk meal prep' and measure out my portions for the day in the morning. Turns out when you get really busy, that doesn't work because I would run out, and have 2 choices: egg whites or lose gains. And lose gains was winning 🙃😂😭 so investing a little time on a Monday night for your week goes a LONG way. Thanks MA for making me learn how to cook. #italians 🙄
Ps Im the one who cleans my counters so I can put what i want on them💋👑 #chucks#wherearemycarbs#JenJensKitchen
Even though Ethiopia was occupied after the second invasion by the Italians from 1936-1941, it was the only African nation never colonized by any Europeans.
82 years ago today,
#Ethiopia , one of the only two independent #African nations at the time, was invaded on October 3,1935 by #Facist#Italy under #BenitoMussolini . The #Italians , seeking revenge for their prior humiliating loss to Ethiopia over 40 years earlier, committed countless #atrocities on the independent African state. Poisonous gas, aerial bomabrdment, flame throwers and concentration camps were all employed against the ill equipped #Ethiopian people. Black outrage throughout the world was unified. The #LeagueOfNations , forerunner to the #UN , was criticized sharply for supplying weapons to Italy and not to Ethiopia. Such actions confirmed Black suspicion that the war was of racial motivation and sought to extinguish the last light of African power in the world. From #Kingston to #Johannesburg , from #Detroit to #Ghana , form #PortOfSpain to #Paris , Black men and women offered to go fight in defense of Ethiopia. And as battles raged between Ethiopians and Italians in Africa, battles raged between Blacks and Italians in the streets of #NewYork . In #SouthAfrica , Black workers began a lengthy march up the continent to assist their African #brothers in Ethiopia. Elsewhere, ex-service men discarded their #European and #American citizenships to bring their military expertise to the defense of Ethiopia. The exiled Ethiopian #Emperor#HaileSelassie became a near #legendary figure to many. Not before or ever since was such a strong sense of #PanAfricanism seen throughout the #world . And though Italy succeeded in defeating the African nation, #Blacks everywhere would continue the #struggle until Ethiopia was.
