I forgot to mention in my last blog about a phenomenal book I just read, and how inspired I have become about eating local. It's called Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Since I started using only organic (or as close to it as I can) foods and cooking the super simple diet way, I've really become almost fanatical about the stuff we put in our bodies!
We definitely are what we eat!
The way we have been eating has really improved the way we feel. And then reading the book, I was ready to run out and buy a farm! But that would be overkill at the moment, so I am being very conscious of buying local and in season. Which might be difficult up here in the winter but I will do my best. The food tastes so much better than stuff that has been shipped from god-knows-where. Eating fresh takes a lot of time, but the benefits are great!
I got so enthused I have ordered cheesemaking ingredients and equipment! That's going to be a trip! Back to being an earth momma - shades of the 60's!
