Summer is in full swing! Alison and the band have spent the past couple of months playing all over Minnesota. Still there is more to come! We've got tons more fun stuff booked through September. (Check out our full schedule on my TOUR page.) Then we're taking a break from touring to ramp up for the holidays!
In between shows the band is in the studio working on our 6th album. So expect to hear some new songs at these shows. Kevin and I have been writing some really good stuff for you!
Lastly, if you haven't had a chance to check out my new single "Hallelujah", you can on iTunes!
See you soon!
I can’t tell you about the Green Polka Dot Box until I tell you how I found out about it. As you may know, I am into food. Generally speaking, I love to read about it, love to talk about it, love to cook it, love to eat it. I also am really into researching my food. I think it’s hugely important what we put into our bodies. I think that food could be a game changer in the world of preventative medicine. I think the government subsidizes all the wrong things within agriculture. Blah blah blah. You see where I’m going with this.
So, I’ve read a whole lot of books about food. This all started when I went from a meat and potatoes girl to a strict vegan about 3 years ago. That was all thanks to “The China Study.” At the time I had no idea how to be a vegan. I didn’t know a single other vegan, and I only knew a couple of vegetarians. So I bought every book I could find and I read constantly. The information I consumed was life changing. The book I am reading now is called “Voices of the Food Revolution” by John and Ocean Robbins. It’s a collection of interviews with the people who are fronting this shift in our diet, focusing on all the issues GMOs are causing. I highly recommend it. You can read more about it here:
Anyway, since I made this shift to being a veggie, I also made a shift to buying almost everything organic. And after this latest read, I am trying to add non-GMO to my must-buy list. That stuff can be a little hard to find, and it definitely has a heftier price tag. One of the suggestions that “Voices” offered was to buy your groceries from The Green Polka Dot Box. It’s much easier on your wallet than making Whole Foods your second home. They don’t have produce, but they have almost everything you could possible need for your pantry, some frozen, and some refrigerated foods. The prices are unbeatable. The variety is pretty impressive. My food was delivered in just a few days, and I got to do it all from the comfort of my own couch! My only complaint is that they categorize all the items as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, non-GMO, etc. They do this so you can search for food based on your dietary restrictions which is great. However, I did notice that they had a few things labeled as vegan, that really weren’t. They were vegetarian, but they had gelatin or some such thing on the list of ingredients. So, if you are picky about that, check the labels as you would at the store.
Also, I did order a carton of almond milk, which due to our weather here in good old MN, froze before I brought it inside, and therefore was ruined. So definitely keep the weather in mind if you wont be home to accept the delivery!
