My 10 favorite food posts of 2016
I write many food articles each year, but these are the ones that really stood out for me.
Dietary choices play a significant role in shaping the environment.
What we choose to put into our bodies not only affects our physical and mental health,
but also the way in which agricultural land is used, the
transportation networks that link fields and greenhouses to our plates, and the government policies that oversee all of it.
Food is powerful. Every time we eat, we ‘vote’ with our forks, whether it’s opting for seasonal foods over imported ones, zero waste packaging, homemade meals instead of takeout, vegan over meat dishes. It is said that opting to cut meat out of one’s diet is the single biggest thing a person can do to reduce their carbon footprint.
As someone who thinks about food from the moment I wake up until I fall asleep at night, I would like to share a list of my favorite posts from the past year, all of which share a common thread – that of challenging the way I operate in the kitchen and pushing my culinary boundaries. May these posts do the same for you in 2017.
