Something came across my line of sight today. A company with a very similar name is now providing a service that was never in my list of tasks; however I think the concept is interesting. It prompted me and really gave a kick in the backside to better define the goals.
Evolutionary Eats is for people who want to learn how to be personally responsible for what they eat. My goal is to teach you how to shop for your food, or how to hire someone to do it for you. It’s to teach you how to plan meals, teach your kids to eat better food, and make good choices when they are out of sight. It is not about judgement, accountability or anything else. We are personally responsible for what we consume, in all aspects of our lives, and how we choose to view ourselves, in every situation.
On Facebook, many of my friends post photos and links to recipes. That is part of the beauty of social media. As a food person, I am constantly working on recipes, concepts for recipes, photo shoots, and then putting it all together in a consumable form. To be honest, most of the time I glance at the recipes and photos, and then move on. And to be very honest, I do all of it myself. On occasion, a friend will check out something I am doing, but really it’s all me. One person with some basic technical knowledge, slapping together something that is almost cohesive and coherent.
I listen to podcasts by Srinivas Rao, instigator of Unmistakable Creative. Recently, I got a big nudge. I realized my readers need some drama, a great back story of how this came about, and why I feel so compelled to continue. The interview was with Donald Miller, author and business man. There is a long back story, and why I know that I am on the path God intended. There are probably only a few people who know the whole story. For a long time, I was a victim, and I played the role, even after I had the power to be free of it.
All of this ties to food. Food has made me evolve, transform, so much of myself. It was always the background for what was going on in my life and in my small, limited view of the world. Food is healing, not only for our bodies but for our souls as well. God showed us this early on in Judeo-Christian history. This morning for my daily reading was Leviticus 6:1-6, regarding the daily burnt offering. It reminded me to “to keep the fires burning”; never let it go out. And to make that daily communion with God.
When I tell snippets of my story to people, they are amazed. I believe it’s the rea-son it has taken so long for me to get to this point. At one point I resovled to not tell this, because it didn’t seem to have any bearing on the goals, and I didn’t want to hurt those involved. But now, it seems the story is important to tell.
More to come; it is about the food.
