One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti
My name is Kristen and I like food. I like it a lot. I like it so much that I have decided to write about it, photograph it and share it with you. I grew up in a rural neighbourhood in Kelowna, BC and moved to Vancouver shortly after college. I’ve travelled the world and have seen many amazing things, but Canada’s West Coast always keeps me coming back for more. Perhaps it is the great food we have here.
I spent nearly 12 years as a vegetarian and the last year trying to convince myself that I still am. These days it seems like it is an outright lie when I say I don’t eat meat; usually because I’m chewing on a piece of bacon as I make that claim. Besides bacon I also like peanut butter, avocados, tomatoes, blue cheese, mint chocolate chip ice cream, whipping cream, peaches, my granny’s apple pie and many, many other yummy things.
I believe that tomatoes and peaches should only be eaten in the summer and that pigs should lead nice lives before they wind up as bacon on my plate. I also believe that when my nephew, and your nieces and nephews and children and grandchildren, grow up, they deserve to see (and eat) the fishes that swim around our oceans; I choose my seafood with this in mind. I encourage you to do the same.
I love my life and feel inspired by the many great people around me. I love sharing ideas with people and if you’d like to share some of your thoughts with me, I’d love to hear from you. If you’d like you can email me at [email protected] or leave a comment on any one of my posts 🙂
