I've started this blog to record my thoughts and research about food and health: how we grow our food, what we eat, the nutrition debate, food distribution, food sovereignty and environmental impact.

My life started down a new path after I read an article a couple of years ago in the New York Times magazine. I became fixated on learning all I could about our eating habits, the way our food is made, and the effects that the industrial food industry has had on our culture and our lives - physically and mentally.

This blog joins an ongoing discussion and is a place to voice interest, intrigue, and discovery. This is not a podium for lecturing, so please extend grace to each other if anything is found to be erroneous. Counter-arguments are encouraged with respect, empathy and compassion for other perspectives.

It's Presence is Growing!

The headlines are changing. What we've been told about healthy food and diet is being challenged. The food industry will have to come to terms with this growing movement of Americans awakened and alert towards the false, the fake, the fucked up.
Long live The #Occupiers!

Read this article to see a popular media breakthrough.

Most of it is great except for the whole grains thing which I will gladly debate (even though it's that season when goodies made with flour - apple pie, pumpkin cookies - are sooooooo tempting!).

On an entirely separate note, I had a conversation about the fact that in countries older than ours, it's still viable to buy packaged groceries that are not processed, such as tomato sauce. I find it entirely preposterous that in order to buy tomato sauce without any additives, it has to be imported from Italy, when in fact tomatoes grow where I live.

Anyway... more and more items like that are becoming localized, so it may soon be possible to buy items like tomato sauce from somewhere much closer than Italy.
