Earth Day is a great idea, to raise awareness of how human activity is affecting the planet and how we can change our behavior to save the planet, or at least make the situation less dire.
Every Earth Day I ponder the idea of doing some sort of post about how through supporting farmers, living sustainably, cooking real food at home, composting having a garden no matter how small, taking public transit, we can all do small things to make a difference.
This year I sort of felt like I should give you all a break given you hear most of that here on a weekly basis anyway 😉
When my friend Kurt (thanks Kurt!) sent me this Michael Pollen video it struck me as the perfect post for Earth Day. My favorite part of the video is towards the end when is talking about a conversation he has with corporate food marketer who believes in the not so distant future that home cooking will be obsolete and quaint like quilting. Pollan, as you can see from the title of the video: How Cooking Can Change Your Life, has different feelings than the marketing guy.
What do you think? Watch the video and let me know if you think cooking is going the way of the Dodo.
Happy belated Earth Day to you all.
