Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

Gretchen Rubin did a good job of reminding us that happiness, as is everything in life, is about decisions & process. Following her year long journey gave me a framework to guide my ongoing evolution.

A great book that will change the way you approach food and think about food, how it is made, how the industry makes money off of you, and why you eat what you eat.

I have referred multiple friends to this book and it has changed my relationship with food and the industry as a whole.
