I have been looking into ways to improve my blog & I realised I don’t really have a strong message about what I represent. I mean, it’s obvious that I love food & cooking & my family & home are my world, but I don’t go into a lot of detail about where & why I get my inspiration from.
Upon reflection, I think it is because I am not one to push my beliefs or opinions on others – I am an ‘each-to-their-own’ kinda gal. If someone asks me, I will tell them, but I don’t go out of my way to ‘preach’ my preferences. I am not sure if this is about not wanting to bore people, or perhaps it is to avoid conflict. Either way, I just don’t tend to go there.
Well, today I am changing that & I am going to go there! Let me begin my stating, I love organic produce & I think we should all being growing, stocking & eating it in as many ways as possible. It is healthier for you, often easy to grow & more than anything, it tastes so much better. Why would you not swap?
I can hear the outcry now … it’s too expensive, too hard to find, too time consuming, too inconvenient. To some extent this is true, but aren’t there similar arguments / excuses for any lifestyle choice? There are those who might say it is cheaper & easier to buy pre-packaged, heavily processed & chemically riddled food for the convenience & in the short term this might hold true, but down the track when your body starts to suffer the ill-effects of overdosing on the artificial, it may well cost you much more than it is worth. Just saying.
