My name is Zoë, and I guess I’m what you’d call a foodie. I mean, I’m definitely a foodie. I’m always planning my next meal, looking out for cool new places to eat, I read recipe books for fun, I’m daily adding to my knowledge of obscure foods and methods of preparation. I eat for more than just sustenance, and I get really excited about breakfast.
This being said, I like to think that I’m a little more than your average foodie, in some ways. I struggle with supermarkets, because you go in, and find a thousand different foods that come from a thousand different places, and how are you to know that they’ve been grown well? How are you to know that the hands that cared for them, prepared them, have been cared for themselves? How are you even to know that your fruit hasn’t been sitting in cold storage for months, becoming tasteless? And what about the animals, grown just to feed us, or taken from their watery homes and brought to our tables – I know a little about what this does to our environment, but I also know that I need protein.
Sometimes all of these questions, and many more, cave in on me and I become overwhelmed. So bit by little bit, I’m trying to learn how to eat well both according to my personal needs, and the needs of the world that I am a part of. I want to encourage others to feed themselves and their loved ones, with a worldly and health-concerned conscience. This is not an easy thing to do, but I’ve spent years discovering that it’s my passion, and I’m planning on spending as many years as it takes figuring out how to make it work on a day-to-day, practical level.
I’m also just excited about food, and I want to share that excitement with you!
I hope you’ll join me.
