episode 100 :: finale

This project has always had an end point, and that end point is here. Since we started this journey together in the early Summer months of 2007, I have set out to learn as much as I could about food, food culture, and the truth behind what we put on our tables every single day. [...]

episode 98 :: red fish, blue fish, some day no fish

episode 95 :: eat more, weigh less

When you change your lifestyle, you change your life. And perhaps my recent lifestyle change has overturned my life as a foodie – in a good way, of course.
