The underlying motivation for following the food path is my own health. I have Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and osteoarthritis in both knees. Nutrition and learning about the food I consume are essential. I know we are what we eat.
I use exercise, food, and knowledge to create a balance between my mind, body, and spirit. All three are vital to being healthy. This is why I am actively following the soil, food, health, path.
A secondary reason for seeking the truth about my chosen path is I know permaculture design can create a world where all beings live in harmony or at least in balance.
I, originally, received a permaculture design certificate (PDC) because I was looking for a means to address hunger and stumbled upon Bill Mollison. My interest grew from there.
We all want and need to eat. Food is a fundamental human right.
I am refining my diet, or better, the foods I consume for health and enjoyment. I will make weekly progress reports here every Friday.
