Food Philosophy


My work with AmeriCorps has taught me the importance of food and nutrition, especially to our neighbors in poverty. My VISTA assignment has also inspired a new set of beliefs that I use to guide my life and, in turn, this blog.

I try to live by these basic principles, but I’m not perfect. I readily admit I don’t always follow everything on this list. But this is a general blueprint by which I live my foodie life.

  • Buy local. As the daughter of a small-business owner, it feels good to support local mom-and-pop operations.
  • Be green. I’m more of the sea-foam variety, but I try my best to save my little corner of Mother Earth.
  • Eat frugally. At this point, I have to. But it’s a practice I will continue when if I get a more lucrative job.
  • Fight hunger. People shouldn’t be deprived of a basic human need, regardless of their lot in life.
