We all have one - even if we've never thought of it that way.
Think of everything you ate yesterday, and everything you expect to eat today- where did the ingredients originate?
What do you eat? Not only likes and dislikes- but what cultural, religious or ethical issues shape your diet?
What about food allergies or sensitivities?
What do you eat when you are too tired or too busy to cook? How much a part of your daily diet is fast food, take-out, pizza or deli food, or convenience foods in cans, boxes or frozen?
What are your comfort foods?
Are you feeding kids? Seniors? Other family members? How often do you entertain? Who else do you feed on a regular bases- your children's friends? Tea with your neighbor?
How do you acquire your food?
Do you buy all your food from supermarkets? From farmers markets? From farm stands?
How do you get the food to your home?
What if your car broke down, or you were unable to buy gas? What if the transport trucks couldn't get through and the store shelves were empty?
Do you produce any of your food? Do you grow a garden? Hunt or fish?
Do you know/use any of the edible wild plants in the Valley?
How often do you cook from scratch?
Do you make bread, soup, grow sprouts?
Do you make jam, can or freeze in season?,
If the power went out, what would you eat?
What if the can opener broke?
What if the microwave broke?
What if the freezer defrosted?
