Knowing what to eat and how to prepare nutritious foods is the foundation of a healthy life - or at least, it should be. Yet we live in a world where we are increasingly disconnected from our food. Many people don't know how to cook healthy meals, or how to make the best choices on a limited budget. Yet there is encouraging news on the food front - more people are seeking out educational resources to find out exactly what they should eat, or how to replace those lost 'food skills' like growing and preserving your own food.
