locavore kyle?

July 9, 2011

Please forgive me for the sloppiness of this post… it hit my brain this morning like a lightning bolt and I sat down to write what I thought would be an intro… and out came the whole thing.  It’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post up on TGK, so my anxiety of allowing this [...]

i miss summer gardens mish-mash post

January 17, 2011

There was quite a while last year that I went without posting, and during that time I really did have a few things that I’d wanted to share.  So why not throw some together now in one little mish-mash? We’ll start with the garden at my parents this past summer.  Since we’re currently in the [...]

health review (?)

January 8, 2011

December 28, 2010

After spending the first half of this year in a fitness craze, I went in reverse for the second half.  Although the summer was filled with fun activities like kayaking, hiking, skiing and biking, since the turn of chillier weather I’ve gone all out on the two activities I’m best at- eating and drinking.

local focus

December 13, 2010

Have you ever thought about what you consume and how much of it is produced locally?  Have you ever considered making an effort at localizing the majority of your consumptionistic tendencies?  (I know I made that word up.  Who cares.)

April 9, 2010
