Today is a big day! I’ve been deciding whether or not to keep this blog for weeks now… and the verdict is yes! I still want all of my recipes in one place, plus it will be fun to share all of my new knowledge with anyone who cares to read.
This decisions wasn’t something that I woke up one morning and decided was for me… I’ve been gathering bits and pieces of information for years – A little about MSG, or a red flag about microwaving food in plastic containers. Nothing was to concrete, but I knew that there were lots of red flags around and I decided this summer to see what all the hype was about.
The First Step:
My first step to “going green” has been knowledge. If I didn’t know what I do then I wouldn’t have the conviction to make huge changes! Here are the recent reads that I have been enjoying and gleaning lots of information from!
Slow Death By Rubber Duck – This book was just out on the shelf at the library and I picked it up because of the cover… I devoured it in 4 days. It doesn’t address food issues so much as the chemicals in everyday things that we come into contact with. This really opened my eyes to the world of strange things that have been made in laboratories that we know nothing about. It isn’t until after people get sick do we think something might be wrong with some of the chemicals. This made me think about the chemicals in our food a little more.
Well I have many other books in my basket and I’ll let you know if there are any keeps. I’ve been making new recipes daily! So I’ll have more of those after then have been perfected.
