Today my husband and I attended our first Slow Food event...the 5th Annual Golden Glass event in San Francisco at Fort Mason. It was a wine and food tasting extravaganza. We got to taste food from many of the local restaurants that we love or are dying to try. I think my favorite tasting had to be the chocolate ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery that was drizzled with olive oil and sea salt...it was delicious!!! And my second favorite was probably the semi-sweet chocolate I tasted that was right next to a tasting of fresh strawberries...and how I love strawberries and chocolate.
The wines were mostly from Italy and many of the representatives there were from Italy. It was fun to listen to them talk in Italian... it is such a beautiful language.
Anyway I know I haven't written a blog entry in a while - but I am busy here running after my 22 month old daughter and trying to prepare local and organic food for her. Tonight for dinner she had a hamburger and peas - and she devoured it.
Healthy Eats for a Sustainable World
Welcome to my blog about healthy eating and food choices that are more sustainable for our world. I think I have always been concerned with eating healthy for my body, but it was not until I was pregnant that I really started to take a look at what I was eating as it was directly helping this tiny person grow inside of me.
I hope that this blog can help to share our story of how we changed the way we look at and buy food, our continual learning process about food, and the eye opening experience of learning how to eat more sustainability for our planet. Enjoy!
