A New Adventure

SOOOOO this peskaterian thing has been off and running for well over a year now, and so far so good. And now I think it's time to shake up the diet a little more and learn to cook along the way! Now I know cooking projects are all the rage thanks to Julie & Julia, but this is less a self-betterment plot than a rail against BIG FOOD. (see i'm not picturing agro-industry or the processed food nitch when politicians throw around the term BIG FOOD, but a 4-story tall carrot storming a city or a can of soup as large as an island floating out in the indian ocean)

See my plan is thus; if I'm going to eat it, I'm going to make it. As in no more brownie mix, we're making them from scratch now. Because really, cookies shouldn't come from a plastic bin or cellophane nor should soup be loaded with enough salt to attract a herd of deer (you're from the country when you get that reference...). But I'm going to have to be reasonable-- I'm in grad school and real food, not edible food-like stuffs, is super expensive and most of the time, I just don't have the time. So this is an experiment... I will not question products at restaurants unless I suspect they have meat (see peskaterian above) and I don't think I'm going to be baking all of my own bread, but maybe I'll purchase it from the local bakery instead of the mass-produced sponge off of the super market shelves. Because I don't plan on going food-crazy in attempting this, it's not like I'm trying for an all-raw diet or that hunter/gatherer crap. In the end, I think it'll be healthier since my food won't be as processed as most of the American diet and it'll discourage my recent brownie sundae binge since brownies will take a lot more effort.

Until we meet again, adieu.

Talk to Megan about making bread, she's been doing a lot of it. And it's AWESOME. (Although, it probably helps to have a KitchenAid...)
