I am trying to avoid the grocery store. For a couple of reasons. One of which is that lately I seem to be making impulse buys while I am there. Which is really not a good thing. The other is that I am currently going through a bit of a food crisis. I've recently finished reading Jonathan Safron Foer's book, Eating Animals and it really struck me. There wasn't any new information in it, much of it I had seen in Michel Moore's documentary and in Food,Inc, and in the movie about eating endless amounts of McDonalds. But reading about it, in black and white, at this time in my life really resonated with me. Since leaving Brooklyn, I live in a much slower world. A world where I have time to make bread and cheese and maple syrup from scratch. And I live in a place where there are multiple farms within five miles of my home and farmers markets that occur almost every day of the week. All of this time should allow me the ability to make better choices. While I am sorting this all out in my head, I am avoiding the grocery store like the plague, which allows me to avoid making concrete decisions. (AKA-procrastination) Last night I opened up my pantry doors to find very little to actually eat for dinner, but I managed to pull together a can of tomatoes and some cheese and some flour to make a pizza. While I flounder about where I should be getting my food from, I am thinking that I will consume homemade pizza three times a day.
