S.O.L.E. the summary

I began this blog back in December 2009 and at the time the below summarized the direction of eating with SOLE, now however my adventures have brought me one step closer to being my own food production system. My family and I moved from the rat race of Cowtown alberta to the Slow-as-you-can Kootenay Valley in BC where growing, preparing and preserving real food has become my daily life. The below all still apply however for a more up to date overview of this blog check out this post !

S – Seasonal

O – Organic

L – Local

E – Ethical

These are my mandates for healthy eating. I love food, flavours and cooking. I consider myself an Ethicarian although I have been both a omnivore and vegetarian before, but my real focus is eating food which nurtures my family and supports local growers who practise sustainable methods of farming.I certainly have a bit of an obsession when it comes to researching conventional food production and it’s devistating impact on the health of our world.  So this is my adventures in learning, cooking, consuming, growing and indulging in S.O.L.E. Foods.

I hope this inspires you too…

BIG BUT… If you are typo copy nazi, this blog is really NOT for you.. I will infuriate you to no end.  Simply I am here to get the word out and share my ideas, not by grammar skills. FAIR WARNING*

      I have a lot of food to grow this season, before we do any travelling, but your place looks like a fantastic foodie heaven. I would love to have a tropical isle in my garden 🙂

  4. Dear Shauna, Is there any place you know of where I could buy the Doukhobor style Borscht and have it shipped to the US?? I used to enjoy it so much when I lived near BC but now I am in Arizona, US and no one knows what I am talking about. Help!
