Humble Greetings!

Welcome, friends, to Feed Me: Feed the World!

What an experiment this will be!  There are a lot of facets and convictions behind this grand blog idea:  the economic responsibility of the Christian, healthy and mindful living, world hunger, corporate responsibility (or lack thereof), alternative medicine, the politics of food, the closed-mindedness of the average diner.

It’s taken me a long time to get to where I am, and I still have a long way to go.  Not so long ago, I drank a 40-oz Arizona Green Tea every day and picked the tomato chunks out of marinara sauce.  Somewhere along the line, I was challenged by things that I read and people that I met to move beyond my entrenched lifestyle and actually think about how I was treating my body.  This led me in many different directions- from being a strict vegetarian for a year to a very unsuccessful experiment in the raw foods diet and many places in between.  Through my travels, I have realized that many different diet styles keep many very different people healthy, and that the land usually yields what it’s people need.  I’ve learned the beauty of seasons, but I still eat KFC when I’m feeling blue.  I’ve learned to be honest with myself, gracious, observant.

My aim is to simply share the things that I have learned over the years, and that I am still learning- whether that be from a magazine, an encounter with spiritual truth, or a bad run-in with pork barbecue.  I am not a doctor, theologian, certified yoga practitioner or gourmet chef.  I will not claim things as truth if they are not, and I will cite my sources when I can.  I ask for your patience as I work out what this looks like, an open mind as you are challenged, and your grace as I make mistakes.

Here are a few of the ‘columns’ that I am working on:

-Quick and Easy Lunches

-Easy Health Tips

-Hidden Ingredients

-Foods You Didn’t Know You Like

-Heroes & Villians of the Industry

-Book, Film, and Article Reviews/Summaries

…and more in the works!

I welcome your criticism, suggestions, ideas, questions, and experiences.  Feel free to leave a comment here, or to email me at karli.vonherbulis@gmail.com 🙂

Be Well,

Karli

  1. Great idea Karli! Im sure I’m going to read a lot of the things that we already talked about in the past, but I am very excited for what you have to come! Keep up the good work and let me know if you have any questions about wordpress. I spent alot of time on it trying to figure everything out about a year ago!
