When he was small, my youngest son had a habit of filling his pockets with treasures he encountered in his daily adventures. I didn't always understand the value he saw in his chosen objects -- really, how many rocks and sticks could one boy keep? In his eyes, though, each one was beautiful and important. Life is just like that on a larger scale, isn't it? We gather up the precious bits of our experiences and save them all to learn from and enjoy later. Perhaps you'll find a little something here that you'd like to keep in your own pockets. Thanks for visiting.

Making the switch

I often find myself getting compliments from people I know, and even from random strangers (like kind grocery store employees), about how healthy our family's diet is. Eating the way we do has been a work in progress for awhile now, a choice that was triggered by health issues, and then fuelled by an enthusiasm to learn more about food and about how what we eat impacts our lives and the planet. One of my favourite food bloggers, Alexa Croft of Lexie's Kitchen, has recently started a wonderful new series on her site called "Making the Switch", a collection of stories written by regular people about how they've changed the way they shop, cook for, and nourish themselves and their families. This week she is featuring my story! (You can read it here.) I hope that sharing my family's experiences with making the switch will somehow inspire others to make their own changes to improve their well-being.

Here's to real food and good health!
