Glacier National Park

Iceberg Lake

This August my husband and I went on an amazing road trip to some of the most beautiful places in the country. The highlight for me: Glacier National Park. We camped at the Rising Sun Campground for 3 nights and hiked as much as possible. Being surrounded by so much pure and untainted nature was good for the soul. Unfortunately, that nature will soon be destroyed. Due climate change all of the parks glaciers are expected to be gone as early as 2020. This will dramatically affect all the plants, animals, and the ecosystem as a whole. If you’ve seen this place in person I know you are as sad as I am about this. (more…)

Read This!

Yesterday’s New York Times article “A Stale Food Fight” by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser beautifully sums up the current state of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Bill. Read it!

Aaaand That Just Happened

Earlier this week Sarah Palin was on Laura Ingraham’s radio show and once again she was not making sense.

“Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat. And I know I’m going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician’s wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back, and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track.”

Hold the phone, are we talking about the same government here? Perhaps Mrs. Palin doesn’t realize that it’s our very own government who subsidizes the non-nutritious junk food way more than healthy fruits and vegetables. Or that so many of our government officials in the USDA also have held major appointments at some of the largest agribusinesses in the country. Or that it’s the same government who chooses to our children frozen pizza for breakfast. Oh, my. I’m going to stop now.

Gourmet JFK

En route to California a few weeks ago I discovered possibly the only thing that could make me actually smile at 5:30am: A Healthy Gourmet shop at JFK. If you’ve read my blog before or know me, you know that I travel a lot and am perpetually annoyed by food choices on the road (or in the air). On this particular trip, due to the early departure time, I was armed only with a banana and a protein bar for the 6hr flight, so you can imagine my joy when rounding the corner in the Delta terminal only to find this. Stocked with fruits, and juices, and organic everything, oh my. After a 5 minute investigation of all items in the store I decided on an edamame and tofu salad. It was delicious and more than enough protein to tide me over until an early dinner in San Diego. I’m looking forward to the day when places like this exist in every airport and rest stop across the country.
