The Reading Corner: Podcast Edition

The Reading Corner is a periodic series where I share interesting articles from around the web plus must-read books. Pull up a comfy chair and get ready for some fun and interesting reads!

For this edition of The Reading Corner, we’re going to venture into a “book on tape” category rather than my typical selection of blog posts and books.

I got tired of getting tangled in cords and decided to forgo that. After reading Meghan’s post, and with my hubby back at the office most of the week, I thought I should give it another try.

Price conference and reading an interview with Sally Pacholok on Real Food Forager, I decided it was time to pick up this book and read it. [Read more...]

The Reading Corner: Changing the Paradigm

The Reading Corner is a periodic series where I share interesting articles from around the web plus must-read books.  Pull up a comfy chair and get ready for some fun and interesting reads!

For this Reading Corner, I thought I would share a few interesting articles to help challenge the old paradigm of how we look at food and eating.  As I have continued to delve into the world of traditional food and GAPS, it amazes me how differently I look at what is healthy and what should be included in a nourishing diet.  Here are a few articles that I have read recently that demonstrate my changing paradigm.  Happy reading!
