If I only had a dollar for every time someone said this after looking into my grocery cart or watching a video on preparing healthy meals for the week:
“Kristin I couldn’t do what you do… I love food too much.”
Ah yes I would be a wealthy woman indeed!
But what’s interesting about this statement, is that I didn’t hear this just a mere 15 years ago.
There has been a change in perception about what we think “food” is and how a diet like mine, which would have been considered “rich” in the 1960’s, today is deemed to “lack in variety” and is not “food”.
That means something has changed in our society. There has been a shift in perspective that has gone largely unnoticed, and undiscussed, until now.
A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct honor and privilege of speaking at the prestigious TEDx event at the University of Idaho to address this startling shift in the way we view food and how it’s absolutely contributing to the astronomical obesity levels in the United States in particular.
