But long lists aren't always helpful, and can seem like a burden weighing down on us instead of a source of inspiration. So our food journey has been a long one--and is still continuing. Slowly over time we researched and contemplated, working hard to avoid faddish thinking and make changes that really feel right.
I love the fact that it's been years since we bought anything besides "real" maple syrup. It's just a part of who we are now. We walk to the aisle and I don't look at the shaped plastic bottles straight in front of me--I look up to the glass bottles on the top shelf and get our maple syrup. I don't compare the price this week against the fake stuff (though I will buy the large bottle of the real stuff which is cheaper per ounce, and two bottles if they are on sale) because we simply have made a change and haven't looked back.
And once this becomes ingrained permanently into the way we do things--we'll embark on the next adventure.
