I have been away mostly because I am on summer vacation and I have no lunches to pack. However, I have also been reading a book that will in many ways change the way I look at food forever. There are some pieces of this book I disagree with, namely her perspective on creation. However, I looked past that and at what I believe is the real meaning behind this book which is to become closer to the food we eat, know where it comes from, eat more locally when possible and the impact that will have on the world. I am making a pledge to buy local produce this summer, grow a garden, and try to can some of the local produce to use this winter. I hope you will read this book and be inspired too.
