LifeLoveFood was born over a curry pot, during one of our family’s traditional dinner-preparation and discussion sessions. I’d been noticing for a while that I kept wishing there was a food-related blog that really carried a love for the whole food cycle, from gardening and farming, to cooking and eating, to composting. And I wanted more resources that weren’t tied into the industrial food complex.

Michael Pollan laid out for us the perfect diet. “Eat food.” The question is, what counts as food?

I’ve concluded that at the very least, it needs to be alive (or recently alive). If it comes in a box, or has a long list of ingredients and nutritional claims, it’s probably not food. If it’s round and fleshy and smells delightful, and you find it growing on a tree, then you can probably assume it is.
