More about foodgetsreal

I've no formal qualifications - not in science, nutrition, health or anything else similar.  So everything on this website is based purely on my opinions, passions,  thoughts, personal experiences and all the odds'n'sods I've learned over the years, plus things I've heard about or would like to see happen.

With an ever growing passion for real food, I'm passionate for other things too but those are other stories.

Passionate about real food, but not obsessed. My aim is towards unprocessed, unrefined preferably organically grown and produced food, mostly plant based, but I do eat ice cream and chocolate too, because I'm human.  I don't necessarily always practise what I preach, but I certainly would like to be able to.  It would be perfect to have the discipline to eat nothing but the real thing all the time, but there is also a need for sanity in this modern plastic world.  So like most humans, I do succumb to foody indulgences of an evil sugary nature.

I'm also not so naïve to think that everything that is natural is good, or that everything that is artificial is bad.  For example, how many people have been made very ill, or even died from eating the wrong plants?  And how many have been saved by ingesting modern medicines?  You have to keep an open mind and keep a balance, and prioritise.

Yes, sometimes you have to prioritise.  After all, when your gorgeous grandson presents you proudly with something like this........

............. how can you possibly say "Sorry, I'm not eating that crap"?  Instead you eat it, enjoy it and tell him the truth, that it is almost as magnificent as he is.

And yes that is me, Shirley, in the photo, those were my ducks (until a fox killed them) and these are some of the rather pathetic but totally delicious vegetables I try to grow.

Over to you

Are you at all passionate for food too?  In some way?  It would be great to hear your thoughts, see your photographs, try out your recipes.  If you are, let's hear your enthusiasm, listen to your opinions and broadcast your voice for  you.

Let's share our passions and our concerns with the world

Maybe we could even start a revolution by voting with our feet in our modern supermarkets selling their modern substitutes for real food.
