Over the past 12 years, eating has been an introspective and conscious activity for me. Whether for moral reasons, my personal health, or the health of the environment, I’ve spent a great deal of time rethinking my food choices. I'm now a reformed vegetarian, eating meat while still looking out for the environment.
Is your deodorant going to give you cancer or lead to Alzheimer's? That chemical cocktail you're smearing under your arms may be doing more than fending off body odor. Your skin not only excretes sweat but absorbs chemicals as well. What are you actively putting on and in your body and what other options do you have?
As the weather begins to cool and the leaves change, my taste buds change as well. I am a very big proponent of eating seasonally and fall is the perfect time for this Sweet Potato and Apple Hash - a soul warming hash perfect to start your day on a crisp morning. Add breakfast sausage to the mix and a side of eggs and you're set.
