The Food Matters Project - you are what you eat

I need another cooking project like a need a hole in my head, right? Well, this one is important. A blogger friend of mine mentioned this in one of her posts, so, naturally, I clicked to take a gander and decided within the first few sentences that I was in. Click here to read more about The Food Matters Project. I cook three meals a day for my family; I may as well cook with a purpose.

The Food Matters philosophy is all about eating more plants and fewer animal products and processed foods — and the positive impact this has on our health and the environment.

I am not a vegetarian and will never be a vegetarian again. Been there, done that. I like meat; and I love cheese. But, for my family's health and the health of the planet, I can definitely eat less of it and animal products in general.

This project is based on Mark Bittman's cookbook, The Food Matters Cookbook. Once a week we will all cook the same recipe, blogging our versions for all the see. I hope you'll follow along, maybe cooking a few here and there. We start on February 6th. Stay tuned...
