Farms to Forks--my personal review after 3 F2F blogs
Saturday, January 19, 2013
OK, I've had a chance to scroll down and look at some of the pictures in my past blogs. LOL, what a contrast to what I've just posted. The meals were definitely yummy at the time. Look at that apricot mousse pie. And those lamb chops. I know all the oil that was in that marinade. Very tasty, but now, after gaining some knowledge, I know what might have been happening inside my arteries.
It was surprising to me to learn at the conference that chicken is really no better than red meat. And all that time I thought I was being "good." Look at those pictures of Engagement chicken that I posted. I know how "good" it tasted. Lemony and rich. But right now I don't even have a desire to go cook that. I am not trying to sound virtuous or better than anyone. I'm not. Just taking a different road right now and seeing how it works for me. I have to say that, in my 70 years, this is the first eating way of life that the data of which was compelling enough to make me stop and take a serious look at it. No, it's not easy. Especially going out. It definitely runs counter to running smoothly through our societal norms. But if I want to be master of my own ship, then I can do what it takes to go this route, at least for a while, to see where it takes me. Annual physical coming up in March. Will go at least that long, and, I suspect, longer.
More entries coming soon about the immersion weekend.
