Real Food Bloggers
It’s embarrassing how late I am to put this up—did I mention I’m working full time now and caring for dogs, goats, chickens, a garden and a compost pile?—but on Mothers Day my story on “Mothers of Real Food Blogosphere” was published on DailyFinance.com, where I’m an editor by day (and night). It’s a really good business and finance news site, by the way, so please check it out. It’s aimed at Main Street rather than Wall Street, but we’ll help you understand the shenanigans of the latter.
It was such a pleasure getting to know the Real Food Media Network bloggers that I spotlighted in my story: Kelly the Kitchen Kop, Ann Marie Michaels (better known as Cheeseslave), and Jenny McGruther of Nourished Kitchen. These ladies are a real inspiration to me. If you haven’t sign up for Jenny’s How to Cook Real Food e-course, I’m pretty sure you could still do it. Once a week for 12 weeks, she’s sending videos and downloadable written materials to teach the basics of nutrient-dense, real-food cooking and eating.
So far, so good, after the first lesson that debuted June 1, but of course I expected nothing less from Jenny, whose monthly recipe cards I had already subscribed to. While I’m not a newcomer to these ideas, which I first got into when I stumbled on Nourishing Traditions, the groundbreaking cookbook and nutrition course by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, PhD, at the Berkeley Whole Foods Market five or six years ago, I am always looking to hone my skills, expand my knowledge and expertise and stay motivated to eat right.
