Real food. real life.
I am so excited with the blueberries, cherries, and raspberries this week! Yum! I'm not how long these will last... Also, combined with last week and this week, we have so much zucchini! Time to be creative! I have some zucchini muffins on the go, might make some zucchini brownies, and then later this week a zucchini lasagna. We didn't do much with the fennel last week, we tried it in a salad and grilled, and we weren't huge fans of it yet. But I'm going to roast it this week with chicken, and put it in soups to see if we can use it up. Here's what we got in

Truth: Life IS busy and unpredictable. And, yes, time is valuable. But what you eat can make or break it. So make it last. Make it count.
Cook. REALLY cook. Don't just tear open a package or crack open a jar. But cook - you know - mixing spices, simmering sauces, sautéing .. Yep, the real deal. It's really not that hard once you open your mind to it.
Read our story and try out some of our recipes. We really cooked these things (and ate them, too!). On weeknights. We even had time to do the dishes.
And yes, there is no refined sugar, soy, or dairy in any of these recipes. And often, they are vegan, gluten-free, or nut-free friendly.
