Goodbye, 2009! You’ve been a good year. Not just because of the places we went:
or all the new restaurants we tried:
or all the food we made (and this is just some of it):
but because this was the first full calendar year that Food Loves Writing has been around, one in which we had a party and not only traveled and ate and cooked and photographed but also, got to know so many of you.
Food Loves Writing Goals for 2010:
- Less white sugar: I credit the new-to-me Eat Today to Live Tomorrow blog for getting me thinking about this one, which has only been affirmed by all the research I’ve done online.
- Likewise, more whole-foods cooking: The CSA I participated in last year was a good start towards understanding where my food comes from and eating more responsibly. The only problem was that even a half share was a lot of vegetables for me, so this year, I’m going to take that same money I invested in the CSA and try to buy the freshest, most healthy produce I can find. I’m fascinated by the concept of eating food as close to natural as possible, and sites like 101 Cookbooks and Sprouted Kitchen are giving me all kinds of specific ideas for making this happen.
- Advertising I believe in: Technically this is a December change, but I plan to continue it through 2010, allowing the advertising sidebar to only showcase products and companies I support.
- Project 365! (yes, again) I really, really want to stick with it this year—one photo a day, every day for a year. I’ve even started a group for fellow food bloggers doing this on Flickr.
What about you?
