I must admit that the irony is not lost on me. I’m a self-proclaimed pastry connoisseur and procurer of sugar-laden snacks, so the fact that I’m writing a blog promoting healthy food choices may surprise people who know me. But the truth is, I want to start eating healthier (did I just hear a pin drop?). That’s why a recent BizVoice® story – one that appeared in our inaugural wellness issue – was particularly fun to write.
The article focused on cultivating connections among local food artisans and producers. One resource I described was Edible Communities, Inc., (ECI) the world’s leading network of magazines dedicated to the local food movement. Hoosiers are represented in three of them: edible LOUISVILLE, edible INDY (debuted in June) and edible MICHIANA (launched this month). Each features profiles of local artisans and producers; colorful photos of mouthwatering cuisine; recipes and more.
Now, I’m no Gordon Ramsey — though a new indulgence of mine is watching old episodes of
Kitchen Nightmares, in which he visits fledgling restaurants to deliver tough love as only he can (mainly, it involves barking orders and moving staff to tears). I am, however, inspired to whip up a (healthy) culinary masterpiece.
Recipe for success… or disaster? Stay tuned!
