my favorite food is fried cheese, but i've tried to improve my eating habits over the last years, in part to offset my other vices, which i'm not going to list here for your reading pleasure.
primarily, this has consisted of buying food that is as close to real as is possible, so organic anything, no corn syrup (except for that damned coffeemate french vanilla creamer that i got hooked on years ago by accident -- i swear there is black tar heroin in there -- though even this i am moving away from as a friend suggested i substitute with vanilla torani syrup made from cane sugar and organic half & half), no bleached flour, preservative-free whenever possible, etc.
so same friend who suggested the creamer alternative is, along with her cohorts, leading a food revolution over at the ethicurean
(the title of this post is their official slogan). her endless proselytizing -- er, gentle prodding, i mean -- has made a believer out of me, and i am putting my money where my mouth is and have proudly signed up for delivery of our very own CSA box
, which comes tomorrow.
i never thought i'd get excited about vegetables, but as ms. nicks says, "children get older/i'm getting older...too." bring on the ruffage!
