Well hello there!
I can’t remember exactly when it happened, but a few years ago, I started becoming more aware of my surroundings, for better or worse. I became increasingly concerned about the food we eat, how it’s grown and prepared and where it comes from. The more I learn, the more food advocacy and awareness of the food system becomes one of the most important issues to me. I started questioning whether the choices we make as people help or hurt the world as a whole, and what’s really best. I became more health-conscious all around, fitness included.
When I think back to the time when I wasn’t concerned with what was in our food or how we’re damaging our planet or how big scary companies control so much of our existence, I also think of how much more complicated it is to care about these things. It reminds me of the old refrain, “Ignorance is bliss.” But then I realize that eventually, many of the less-than-positive things we are ignorant about catch up with us and the outcome isn’t pretty. Remembering that is what keeps me motivated to learn and share as much as I can so we can all make this world and the life we have on it the best they can be.
