Food For Thought

I must begin this blog with a total disclaimer - and a request for dispensation!
That means what I am about to blog about is not limited a vegetarian eating - but it is interesting news about a new show on food.

“Food for Thought," featured on the newest episode of CPTV’s All Things Connecticut,
a weekly series for which Diane Smith acts as host, will air at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 14 at 8 p.m.
(Rebroadcasts will air at 11 p.m. May 18 at 11 p.m. and 5 p.m. May 20)

It is the fourth installment of the new series’ eight-week run, CPTV said in a release. In “Food for Thought,” Smith and contributing reporters Ed Wierzbicki, Eric Clemons and Christina DeFranco, with videographer Mike Dunphy, "highlight some of the state’s people, places and ideas that exemplify how food can both stimulate the senses and inspire great thought," CPTV's release said.

According to CPTV, this week’s Treading Lightly segment, includes DeFranco interviewing Avon resident Terry Walters, a champion of “eating locally,” who started giving tours at health food stores and teaching cooking classes in her home. Walters has written and self-published a cookbook called "Clean Food," which includes recipes that are both nourishing and seasonal, and next fall Clean Food will be re-released by a major publisher that hopes to spread Clean Food’s message across the nation, CPTV said.

It is very important to eat unprocessed foods to avoid additives and to take claim over our health.
The show and book are food for thought.
