Why do you write a blog?
Several people asked why I write this blog. I think people need to be reminded to be kind to each other. That sounds pretty preachy, but if you put it in the context of manners or etiquette, the specific rules seem to be more acceptable to some people than the reasons behind them. I’ll take the kinder, gentler any way I can get it.
Secondly, we are learning so much now about how what we eat affects the quality and length of our lives. This knowledge requires most of us to change the eating habits of a lifetime. It can’t be done overnight. Some of my recipes are not healthy, but lots of them are. I’m trying to make the transition to healthier eating too, and if I can bring anyone along with me, so much the better.
Finally, I think we hear a lot about how much is wrong with America. There’s no denying that we have our work cut out for us these days. But there are a lot of things that are right about America, and I don’t think self-loathing is a useful emotion. America is still a cup of light, and I don’t forget that. I hope this silly blog occasionally reminds people that we’ve got something pretty good going here.
