mindful eating in the 21st century
I spent Saturday night watching + listening to this incredibly intelligent and powerful interview with Dan Barber of Blue Hill restaurants + Stone Barns. He speaks passionately about food, especially the farm-to-table movement he stands so firmly behind, and adds his voice to the chorus of those who believe the healthiest and most honest way of growing + producing food is also the most sustainable and delicious.
If you are interested in watching the interview (which I highly recommend!), you can right here. The video is a little over an hour, so you may want to plan ahead a bit.
I love being a part of this conversation, and spend a lot of time talking + reading about (+ making!) food. One of my dreams is to someday own a beautiful piece of land, learn mad organic gardening + farming skills, and cook simple meals for the people I love most...so basically everything Dan Barber does every single day. I think he's a superhero.
What are your thoughts on food? Do you spend your summer + fall Saturdays at a local farmer's market? Do you grow your own food?
all images from the blue hill website. are you interested in reading more about food? Here are a few of my favorite reads + documentaries that are all about honest food + sustainable farming:
Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life
Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto
Alice Waters' The Art of Simple Food
Jamie Oliver's Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life
Documentaries (Both can be found on Netflix)
Food Inc. I think every single person in the United States should watch this documentary, it is life changing.
