Okay, I admit it. I’m excited! My first guest article, “Get Cultured, Invest in Stocks & Take a Long, Hot Soak: Next Steps in Getting Off the Food Grid“, appears at SimpleMom.net today. The post builds on a Maggie’s Nest article from a few months back called De-Centralize Your Food System. In that article I outlined the first three steps one can take toward becoming less dependent on our centralized food system of “Big Ag” businesses, food manufacturers (think about that phrase for a minute!) and supermarkets. Today’s article at SimpleMom.net takes you further down the rabbit hole of food independence, showing you three easy ways to make your food more nutritious while saving money at the grocery store. Nice, eh?
I talk about more than food here at Maggie’s Nest, so please feel free to browse around in the various categories. Travel articles are in the “Wandernest” category; posts about creative process abound in “Nurturing Creativity”, and more philosophical articles about family, home, living on purpose, and practicing self-care area also littered throughout the site.
My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all. — John Lennon
