food: i don't like industrialized food; it tastes
like crap and makes me feel the same. i try to eat local,
sustainable foods so i love my Sunday Farmers' Market. my diet is

your food, being too militant about it can be detrimental; there is
a large psychological aspect to eating that a lot of people
discount or ignore. i LOVE to cook. from scratch. i think many have

Thai, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Filipino, and more. this past

kombucha, kefir, etc.), and am loving it! it can get pretty
fragrant sometimes; the carrot, red onion, and kale blend was
dubbed "bustin' ass" by one of my coworkers. ;) the Christmas

cheese. i am about to bite the bullet and invest in a good stone
grinder so i can make my own velvety nut butters (i love you

idlis and dosas of course! if you want to cook together, i may just
i am enrolled with the Institute of Transformational Nutrition so

about healthy food, or at least willing to try, we are probably not
going to be a good match.
