My current food philosophy is best embodied in a quote written by Michael Pollan in his book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, in which he writes:
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
As the name of this blog implies, I am a food loving person. I absolutely love the process of preparing and eating food. With that said, I am health conscious and want to grow into an old foodie (who is, of course, young at heart), so I know that it is important to eat reasonably sized portions and lots of vegetables. While I would say I eat this way the majority of the time, I also enjoy all kinds of foods and consider nothing off limits.
My diet is mostly comprised of veggies, dairy (including lots of cheese), whole grains and fish, with goodies like poultry and red meat mixed in occasionally (mostly at restaurants, when I am making my own homemade sausage, or preparing meat for others). My preference is organic and local, but that is not always possible because of expenses or availability, but I am getting better at becoming a “lorganic” (local + organic!) eater.
Let me know if you have any questions about my style of eating!
