“Eat food, mostly plants, not too much,” says Michael Pollan and a growing chorus of scientists and health providers who look thoughtfully at the health crises of our time and cannot help but shine an urgent light on the harmful impacts of the industrialization of our food supply and cultural shifts away from simply preparing and eating the foods that have built health and sustained life for generations.At Grow Well, we provide resources that meet people in the awkward reality that “eat food, mostly plants, not too much” can be quite a challenge in modern life. How do we get back to basics with food when our modern lives have moved new things into the spaces where cooking and eating used to dwell? How do we make foods that taste good and are simple to prepare? How do we make sense of the products in the marketplace, with their misleading labels and suspect promises? How do we begin to free ourselves from unhealthy patterns of eating and products known to be powerfully attractive and even addictive?
We provide a range of resources, from mindful eating practices to user-friendly and delicious real food recipes, all of which we hope will lend a hand to help you build new ideas, confidence, knowledge and joy in eating foods that vitalize the unique and important being that is you .
