Are you a 'foodie?'

A "foodie" is person keenly interested in food, especially in eating or cooking, according to

As I was driving around town the other day, the thought suddenly popped into my head: "I'm a foodie."

I love to eat fresh, local organic produce. I buy most of my food at food co-ops and farmers' markets because I think organic food is better for my health.

I have a small raised-bed organic garden, and this year I'm growing kale, yellow zucchini, green beans, carrots, tomatoes (maybe), cucumbers, and kohlrabi. In my patio garden, I have more tomatoes and herbs. 

I support local, organic farmers. For the past several years, I've attend the Green Festival in Seattle and blogged about a variety of earth friendly speakers.

But my daughter says I'm not a foodie because I don't use many spices in my cooking, and I'm not that interested in seeking out the latest foodie-type restaurants.

What do you think? Are you a foodie? What's your definition of one?
