I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
This morning, I walked down the hill, past the post office (and laden fig tree!) and under the arch here in Pontassieve, to the health food store.
It is more expensive to buy food here than to go shop in the supermarket. But it is a totally different experience – no car park, trolley, florescent lights or queues. And local, sustainable food, grown organically.
This is what I came home with.
Money is not what culture has brought us up to believe it is. It is an exchange of energy. And I believe that the intention expressed in that exchange of energy is everything.
It’s scary to believe this, when you don’t have pots of the stuff and you’ve been brought up by people whose life is run in completely the opposite way. But I feel better when I shop like this and I believe in what these people are doing, so I step forward with faith.
I really want to go and visit @bioagriturismoilcerreto – the place that grew these lentils and farro. They have an unchlorinated pool filtered by zeolites. One day!
