<p>WHEDco food policy &amp; food tasting event – March 18th, 2013</p>

<p>WHEDco is the organization I worked with last year as a VISTA member. Their mission is to ensure Bronxites have the same opportunity for a healthy, happy life. They built energy efficient housing, a rooftop farm on one of those buildings, recruited and assisted Green Cart vendors, advocated for CSAs in the BX, and run a weekly food pantry. That’s just scratching the surface of what they do for and with the community.</p>

<p>They also have an incubator kitchen that supports food startups. Last night featured the companies from the kitchen. From Gourmet Butter to shrimp sauce, these enterprisers are getting their chance to shine in the NYC food world.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
