On Earth as it is in Heaven

We have heard about Bethel Redding, a revival church in Northern California, some time ago from some visiting friends who had just returned from a weekend there, overjoyed by what they had experienced.  We recently discovered some of their worship sessions on YouTube which are truly a treat.  If you are thirtsy for God, we encourage checking it out.

Below is one of our favorites, “Anchor,” recorded at Bethel Redding.  Enjoy!


What is Halfwayfoods?

What is Halfwayfoods?  It is an eternal quest for both the nutritious and delicious in the world of gastronomy.  But how did this quest begin?

Una creación del Desván Azul

One evening, we were out with our lovely wife and strolled through a Whole Foods Market here in Portland, Oregon.  As we were standing in the store surrounded by the finest of the earth’s bounty on that mid-winter’s eve, our thoughts began to wander.

“What makes a whole food?”

At that point our brain took a dizzying journey through the grand array of foods of which we have had the pleasure of partaking in our lifetime.  As we completed the gastronomical tour de force and returned to the present, a profound realization came to us:

Most foods are either nutritious or delicious.  Many foods which are pleasing to the palette are often disagreeable to the organism.  On the other hand, there is any number of foods which, if faithfully ingested, will keep us healthy as a horse, yet they lack the basic element which greatly aids said ingestion:  Flavor.

And so began the eternal quest for the halfwayfood.  A halfwayfood is that rare food or dish which manages to combine the essential elements of both edibility and nutrition.  They are foods that appeal to the palette as well as the organism.

Where can we find halfwayfoods?  If we are paying attention, we will find them all around us, often in the most unlikely of places.  Halfwayfoods is dedicated to seeking out the halfway foods of the world and informing our readers of them.  Along the way, we find ourselves exploring not only foods, but halfway drinks, halfway eating establishments, and more importantly, halfway ideas.

We are pleased that you have joined us on this quest!  Please feel free to peruse the site and naturally, if you have a halfway food, drink, establishment, or idea which you would like to share with the world, simply register and share it directly on the site!

Alternatively, send it to us on twitter or shoot us an email at and we will post if for you.

Thanks again for joining us on our quest and welcome to Halfwayfoods.  Happy eating!


Twinkie the Kid

Circa 2002, Twinkie the Kid was spotted at one of his known haunts, the Hostess outlet:

Though you would never see him darken the door of the health food store next door!

Carne a la Parilla


A nice cut of meat on “la parilla,” the standard grill in Bolivian backyards.  This delicious grass fed cut is usually enjoyed by cutting bite sized pieces off of the main piece to be eaten while still hot, rodizio style if you will.
