I've been pondering health and nutrition even more than usual lately for a couple reasons. The first was an appointment with a naturopathic physician (which was amazing). One of the things she suggested for me was to cut back on wheat. Since then, I've mostly been eating only fruits and vegetables. It has been way easier than I thought, and it just feels good.
The second reason is that I'm finally reading In Defense of Food and, as a result, am starting to change the way I think about food and eating. Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. It sounds simple enough, but there's much more to it (like the point that most of what we're putting in our mouth isn't really food at all, but rather food-like edible substances). I really love the book so far and I'm excited to slowly "reclaim [my] health and happiness as [an] eater."
^That's my pretty and healthy and delicious weekly lunch from Chestnut Lane: kale salad and fresh fruit. If you haven't been there, you are missing out. Actually, some of my very favorite Phoenix restaurants are St. Francis, Chestnut Lane, and Bertha's. It just so happens that all three of them are my design clients... what can I say, we love good food.
