Simplifying nutrition and using food as medicine - one bite at a time.

My goal with this blog is to set folks straight about what good nutrition really is! Starting by discarding the info we get every day from 'sponsors' that do not really have our best interests at heart, I want to inspire you to eat better AND realize it is much easier than you thought it would be!

Just about any health issues can be addressed with nutrition (and meditation), from mild to chronic to acute. We truly have the ability to heal ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually...

And you can use your daily routine as your vehicle to drive that change :)

"When food, in the minds of eaters, is no longer associated with farming and with the land, then the eaters are suffering a kind of cultural amnesia that is misleading and dangerous"

Orange Cheese - why!?

Have you ever wondered why cheese in North America is often orange? I have!  Not until I became a little more food savvy of course but I just grew up thinking that some cheese were just 'that way'and not ever questioning why or even how. I think it has, over time, just become an accepted thing or, perhaps more accurately, an unquestioned thing. Until fairly recently that is, as consumers are becoming more in the know about food additives they are wanting to avoid them as much as possible.

I was please to be forwarded this article today from a good friend and fellow concerned foodie:

Please pass it on as we as consumers need to stop supporting food companies that use these additives - for the sake of our kids and our collective health!
