My Nourishing New Year’s Resolutions
1. Master making my own pasta from sprouted grains. Not that I’m a pasta lover, but I’ve always wanted to do this.
2. Grow food in my own garden. I’ve wanted to do this for years and haven’t been able to get my act together to do it. Buying from local farm stands and CSAs is good as far as it goes, but I want to be a producer too.
3. Spread the Real Food love. Last Sunday I led a viewing of The Future of Food and led a discussion about food and related issues afterwards. And wow. What an experience. For the most part, I wasn’t preaching to the choir. Instead, our time together actually inspired others (and myself) to do better. I want to keep doing things like that, both locally and online, to connect REAL people with REAL food.

Thanks for sharing. I am planning on starting a small garden this year too. I look forward to reading more this year about your garden.
Good luck on your goals…I’m a garden newbie (well, 3 years in, but it’s a major learning curve for me), so I especially wish you luck in that arena. It’s so rewarding to cook food that you’ve sewn and reapt!
At first I thought I didn’t have any nourishing new years resolutions, but now I’m realizing that I do. My husband and I are excited to:
1. Make and use more bone broths.
2. Continue to buy local, free range meats and eggs and local, organic fruits and veggies.
3. Make homemade versions of more of the things we buy. Crackers and cream cheese are high on the list. We’re also starting to consider grinding our own grain.
4. I’m also looking into including more fermented things into our diet, though I don’t have a clear plan for that. We’re drinking kombucha and I’d like to start lacto-fermenting some veggies. I haven’t done that yet.
