About Foodgetsreal

Welcome.  This website is for you, but first, the boring stuff about I (Shirley) who am doing the typing.

I do want to make one thing clear.  I am not an expert - not in science or nutrition or health or anything else.  So everything on my website is based purely on my opinion, thoughts and passions about things I have personally experienced or have heard about or would like to see happen.

What I am is enthusiastic, indeed passionate for real food.  I am enthusiastic and passionate for other things too but those are other stories.

Enthusiastic, but not obsessed.  Passionate, but I do eat ice cream and chocolate too, because I am 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 to keep our sanity in this modern plastic world, so like most humans, I do succumb to foody indulgences of evil sugary stuff at least once a day.

Sometimes other things are more important.  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 as magnificent as he is.

And yes that is me in the photo, those are our ducks and these are some of the rather pathetic but totally delicious vegetables I try to grow.

Now let's talk about you

Are you at all passionate about food too?  In some way?  It would be great to hear your thoughts, see your photographs, try out your recipes.  If you are, I want to 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.
