Future of Women x Healthyish Breakfast Recap: Sustainability and Climate Change

FEBRUARY 09, 2020

It isn't every day you get to have a delicious breakfast with a side of sustainable conversation and female empowerment. We left the Future of Women x Healthyish breakfast at Kismet in Los Angeles with full stomachs, new friends, and happy hearts.


Future of Women hosts a monthly women's breakfast series featuring game-changing women in collaboration with award-winning female chefs worldwide. For this breakfast they collaborated with Healythyish, a site from Bon Appétit about feel-good food and living. 



We were spoiled with mouth watering food prepared by Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson, co-owners and chefs of Kismet. A meal based on Healthyish's new Eating For The Planet Guide that included cardamom almond tea cakes, Tokyo turnips with butter, cranberry beans marinated feta, roasted squash, celery, chamomile, with Activist Mānuka honey, Nigella Persian-style frittata with spinach, white beans, and barberries. 

Each year, 1.3 billion tons of food are lost or wasted, several times what’s needed to feed every hungry person on the planet. Kismet shared their knowledge about cooking sustainably and minimizing food waste.


 Our founder, Dechel was joined by Leslie Campbell of Sustain LA and journalist Aditi Mayer. We covered sustainability topics, climate change and discussed resources like:

"Reports from LA Food Policy Council, a working group that promotes strategies for food waste prevention, food recovery and donation, and composting.

TERRACYCLE, a recycling platform to collect non-recyclable pre-consumer and post-consumer waste, and then partners with corporate donors or municipalities to turn ti into raw materials to be used in new products.

The Delightful Table, vegan and vegetarian cooking classes, recipes, and much more in Los Angeles.

HELPSY, the largest clothing collector in the Northeast US, with over 1,800 collection containers and growing. HELPSY collected over 25 million pounds of clothes last year and is on an environmental mission to radically change the way people think about clothing recycling by making reusing and recycling clothes and shoes more convenient and easier than ever.

Good on You, trusted brand ratings, articles and expertise on ethical and sustainable fashion." - Future of Women Breakfast Recap



 We were also in great company with the women-led conscious brands that partnered! There were goodies from Kollo, Junes, Clevr Blends, Activist, Akua, Seek, Veji Bag, and Alaya Tea.

Thank you Alex Gomez for the amazing photography!
