Today I'm thinking about the food on our table....
-And reading The New York Times Magazine - "The Food Issue."
-God creates and provides every single menu item; we are to be good stewards. I've got a ways to go, but pondering the issues is important, too.
-During my restricted (yet bountiful) yeast-free diet, I have not missed fast food once. Well, on occasion, perhaps a batch of old-fashioned French fries, but that's about it. I think all this detoxing has changed much of my palate.
-Alissa hipped me to the Slow Food Nation conference videos. So far, I've only watched one, but it was great ~ Wendell Berry, Michael Pollan, and Alice Waters; and Carlo Petrini (founder of the international Slow Food movement) speaking beautiful Italian:
-Nicole hipped me to Gourmet magazine's Diary of a Foodie; full episodes from season one are available online. Yesterday I watched "Italy: Home Cooking." I'm inspired by the idea of Italians opening their doors to offer home-cooked meals to strangers. Yes, thank you, I'd love to visit such homes.
On that note, it's time for a late lunch: a big bed of salad greens topped with herb turkey, pumpkin seeds, and olive oil - ginger root beer to wash it all down. And, Sweet Thai Delight tea w/coconut milk for dessert. Simplicity can be delicious.
