There's nothing like being invited to a really great party. The invitation arrives, all pretty. You know the hostess -- she's bubbly, smart, and fun. There's just no doubt you're doing to have a good time.
Oh! Wait! You mean he'll be there, too? And her? And HER? Even better! You've always wanted to meet them. Such good luck that you were invited.
And then you see it. At the bottom. The last line of the invite says this:
Bring all your friends.
Wait, seriously? You can bring ALL your friends? Yes, yes, it turns out you can.
WHAT: The launch of Nourish Network, a new website and online community devoted to sound nutrition, eco-clean eating, and mindful meals.
My colleague Lia Huber, a fellow freelance food and health writer for such publications as Cooking Light, Prevention, Health, and Fitness, among others, has created this wonderful place where those interested in the intersections among mind, body, food, and the environment can interact and feel inspired. I was brought on as a Contributor, along with my colleagues Alison Ashton, Jacqueline Church, and Kurt Michael Friese.
My first article, Making Sense of Moderation, appears on the site here. You'll find my recipe for mini dark chocolate puddings (pictured above) there as well. You'll also find Alison's article on using pressure cookers, Jacqueline's article on demystifying umami, and Kurt's article on chile peppers, plus Lia's pieces on everything from sustainable seafood to canning. Recipes and photographs accompany them all.
Come explore the site, see what it offers, and join the network. Everyone's invited, so spread the word.
