My personal thoughts on food.

I believe that local organic food (produce, meat, dairy) is the best food you can eat.
I believe that food is one of the biggest factors in our health and well being.
I believe that processed food is full of chemicals and preservatives that are killing us.
I believe that you can prepare a meal at home with good quality ingredients for less money than you would spend at the fast food joint or in the freezer section of your local 'food' mart.

I understand that local organic food is not always easy to find.
I understand that for a number of years here in America the media hype has been preaching fast, easy, time saving and pre packaged.
I understand that life is busy and messy and stressful.

I hope that good quality, local and or organic food becomes the 'norm' and more easily accessible to all of us.
I hope that it becomes easier to learn about food, cooking and health.
I hope the media hype really picks up on the changes that are going on and starts to promote a more conscious and healthy way of living.

I personally am on the journey of changing how I live and do things. It's a journey in progress.

  4. Beautifully put.

    In Australia, there is a growing movement to create kitchen gardens in primary schools (5 - 12 y.o.) where the kids care for the gardens and then learn how to prepare meals with the produce.

    So, I think the message is getting out there...

    Keep the faith!
