When I first met Stonyfield CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg two years ago, he made a comment about the current food system that really stuck with me: It took a lot of small steps to get us into this mess, but that means we can take a lot of small steps to get out.
Growing up, my family never drank milk straight up; milk purely was viewed as a vehicle for cereal (or cookie dunking). I’m not sure whether this was an Asian lactose issue, but it certainly became habit, and the trend has persisted. Whether by example or preference, my daughter also is not one to drink a cup of milk.
Make no mistake; I adore the holidays – the assemblage of friends and family, the festive clothing, décor, and mood, and yes, the food. But the food – in all of its abundance and decadence – also poses challenges.
