New Year, New Thoughts, New Fun!

After a brief (or not so brief) sabbatical, it’s time to start writing again. Not that I wasn’t thinking about the same issues I was writing about before, but I wasn’t taking the time to formally write down my thoughts. However, I think that writing it down could lead to new insights, new ideas and opinions…and since the news on food and health and wellness hasn’t slowed down or gotten less complex in 2009…I think I should keep tackling it in 2010.

In the past year I’ve made more changes and refinements to my diet and exercise regimens, and I’m looking at new ways to keep myself healthy. I’ll be looking more at whole and sprouted grains, attempting another sourdough starter, working on incorporating new spices, sauces, and flavors into my food so that I don’t get sick of repetitive food, planting more vegetables into my little window garden, and (hopefully!) learning a lot more about agriculture policy and environmental efforts happening around the globe, in an attempt to formulate my opinions on viable options for the future of our food system (because it’s pretty obvious at this point that it’s a bit broken).

I’m so excited to get back to it! There is so much to cover! I hope you can join in the discussion!

Welcome to Roots to Health! I’ll be chronicling my attempts to better understand the food and health industries.  There is so much conflicting information out there, so I want to dig into news headlines, research studies, and people’s experience in order to discern what really constitutes a healthy or unhealthy habit.  Hopefully, all the investigation will lead to a little more clarity in how to live well and joyously!
