Food Sleuth back again, too!

Back in February, I wrote in my blog about the end of publication of the very informative Food Sleuth newspaper column written by my friend and colleague Melinda Hemmelgarn, MS, RD. I ended that post with one of my favorite quotations:
Every journey has a secret destination of which the traveler is unaware.
~~Martin Buber

Melinda's journey has now taken her to a new destination where her insightful voice and questions focused on investigating food and nutrition issues will have an even wider impact as she helps people to "think beyond their plates".

Tune in to hear her new radio show, also called Food Sleuth, as she interviews a different guest each week. It airs live every week on Thursday at 5 pm (central time), but all shows are archived on the KOPN Public Radio Station web site (Columbia, MO) to listen on-line or download for future listening. The format is a 30 minute interview with an author, film director, or researcher as a single guest, each having experience and thoughtful opinions on a wide variety of issues concerned with the healthfulness, sustainability, social justice (and more) of our current food system.

I know Melinda will always ask the guest to provide action points that have personal plus more far-reaching benefits.

I'm eager to catch up with the archived interviews and look forward to upcoming ones. All people who eat (hmmm, I think that is just about everyone....) will benefit from a wider understanding of how their personal food choices can shape the world in which we live both now and in the future.

I hope you can tune in to hear Melinda and her guests help you "think beyond your plate"!

Hi Diana, I am so glad that you are back with us.
A question you talk about a beer and wine, do you have a drink with your food?

Diana, I am so glad you are back. I have been periodically checking your site. So glad also that your mother is doing better. And what a wonderful adventure you have started with your new farm! Reading about it started me day-dreaming about having a few acres to grow our own food and have room for our Scotties to roam. It's so encouraging to read about you living your dream. I look forward to reading about how your farm progresses. Keep up the good work!
