Yes, another food blog. Just what the world needs.
Inspirations: *Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "In Defense of Food". Brilliant. Buy. Amazon.com. Life = altered.
*My former piano teacher, whose digestive system went suddenly AWOL last summer. She was diagnosed as 100% food allergic. (100% FOOD ALLERGIC.) But the story has a happy ending. She weaned her body back, and now eats a diet of entirely whole, unprocessed foods: coincidentally, exactly the diet prescribed by Pollan.
Her blood work is better than mine. And let me tell you, her body is banging.
Put them together, and voila: I challenge myself, for (at least) one year, to follow the "eating algorhythms" laid out in "In Defense of Food". I'll post my recipes and meals, and try my best to be sickeningly honest about successes, failures, milestones, and results.
A final note: This food blog has nothing to do with "Julie and Julia". I am, in fact, more than a little aggrieved it came out in the months preceding my venture. I would feel robbed, but frankly, I can't begrudge Meryl Streep anything.
Eating food, not too much, mostly plants. For a year.
