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
-Foods You Didn’t Know You Like
-Heroes & Villians of the Industry
-Book, Film, and Article Reviews/Summaries
…and more in the works!
