Once upon a time, not so long ago

Have you ever wondered in these last weeks how Tricia came to imagine a “Super Veggie Me” experiment and I came to say yes? A dozen other people had rejected her offer out of hand. “I can’t let go of ______ (fill in the...

Eat Blog Love

If this blog were music, I guess you could say I’m singing for my supper. At least I seem to be blogging for it. For this month, at least, it seems that Tricia and I are engaged in an equal exchange. She wakes up in the middle of the night...

Re-tox

Rounding the bend into week three, and thus seeing the end of September gleaming on the horizon, I wonder what will stick from this experiment in 10 mile eating. Or re-stick. I suspect I will never forget that just by eliminating grains and beans...

Meet my food system

Lesson Number One (repeat after me as many times as it takes to get through your thick skull): It’s not about me. This has been among my highest insights in my most expanded states of mind. It’s also clear that eating – however...

Diets and Eating

Last night I stumbled into the food salon at the TED talks online. If you don’t know www.ted.com I recommend it highly – rich brain candy (which is not fattening). Mark Bittman, the cookbook author and on-air chef (how many are there...

Yesterday I attended the Transition Pacific Northwest Convergence with my day’s 10 mile food in tow to survive for 15 hours out of my eensy beensy micro bioregion. Chris Wolfe of Transition Whatcom County took on to cook breakfast, lunch...

Will there be enough?

I have to think about food way more than I used to – or differently than I am used to. Tomorrow I am going to a Regional Transition Convergence in Seattle where mostly local (to Seattle? Bellingham? 100 miles?) food will be lovingly...

Cundir and Aprovechar

Traditional peoples have traditional words¬† to describe a way of life we’ve forgotten. I’m fluent in Spanish and learned two words my year in Spain in 1966 that aren’t in US English. Cundir and Aprovechar. Cundir means to make...

Zackers and Zookies

I’m here before bed eating some zookies while I write this post. I had zackers earlier today with some goat cheese, but I felt like a bit of sweet tonight. Say what? In my search for crunch I learned that you could dehydrate Zucchini and...
