we seem to have forgotten where our food comes from. Too many people think broccoli comes from the grocery store. Too many of us are surrounded by concrete, and we’ve learned to value bigger and faster business not our health and happiness. It is no wonder that, in turn, we disregard ourselves and the planet. We are shockingly self-destructive.
in thrall to the food industry, society generates barriers to people- especially poor people in urban areas (i.e. most of the people on the planet- eating close to the earth, in ways that sustain our bodies and the planet. Organic & fair trade food is often prohibitively expensive. Locally grown food maybe utterly unavailable where local farms could not survive competition with agribusiness or urban sprawl. As we work toward eliminating such barriers, we can celebrate good (good meaning not destroyed and non-destructive in its production and procession) food when we have it.
i am writing recipes or sharing how I am cooking if it is not quite a recipe because I try to do it lovingly – with care for this world and those I love. Write me back – let me know if you loved it, who you loved with it, or what you did to make it lovelier.
