First post

I have thought and thought about this. I have researched nutrition for years. I minored in it when I was in college. Throughout the years I have used my knowledge for various people to help them gather new ideas and information. Now that I am rekindling my interest, I am finding that my research is becoming pigeonholed to the local movement. Which is fine for me and my family, but it makes my research bias, and not as easily shared.


So I am creating this blog for people to ask questions so I have more to research. Of course, there will be things I already know... but there will also be things that stump me, and spawn a new off shoot of interest in other nutrition venues so that I can broaden my knowledge base again.

You are all welcome to pose questions to me regarding nutritional ideas, fads, personal nutrition issues, cravings and anything else that fits in or around those categories. The more the merrier, as it will keep my research refreshed and new, and I will appreciate that. I look forward to chatting with you all. :)

Excellent! I'll link to you in my blog. I've been talking about the increased nutrition in locally grown foods for years. Locally grow does make a difference.

I would love to hear your perspectives on soy--panacea or demon! The people on both sides of the issue are so emotional and insistent about their stance...

I'd also be interested to hear your thoughts on big farming vs small farms (local or not, organic or not) with the idea that a big operation will deplete the soil so that, even if they are 'organic' they may be very much inferior to my backyard garden...

Eeek! You used the f-word -- fads. Somebody I met recently used that term in reference to organics and locavores. Sigh.

But since you mentioned it, here's a fad to start with. Grassy green health food drinks. My daughter loves them, and I have to agree the nutrition in that bottle is probably better than what she's finding in the university cafetera.
