THIS WEEK ON EDIBLE ISSUES
13th September 2018,
Last weekend, we were in a discussion curated by Navdanya International which aims to improve the food system by growing and eating nutritious and safe food. The idea was to present the Food for Health Manifesto, which as a tool could help to increase diversity not just in our ecological food systems but also in our gut microbiome, thus linking healthy human bodies to a healthy environment.
In India we are fortunate to have to have a rich agricultural landscape. It is motivating to see farmers, chefs, and scientists work on ways to bring back this diversity in the way we grow and eat food.
This lovely poem on “mahua” reminds us of the complexities of our food (social/political) and the pride & respect we ought to have. Diversity is our privilege.
