Real food. real life.
Summer is definitely here and our CSA boxes are overflowing! I'm pretty proud of us - keeping up with all of the fresh veggies and finding delicious ways to eat them up! I am so happy we decided to do CSA's finally - I can't see us going back to our grocery store shopping ways. We have gotten used to getting our weekly CSA box, stopping at the local market for other fresh food to compliment our CSA boxes, and only using grocery chains for certain toiletry items or specialty cooking items. Here are some pics of some of the meals we've been eating. I find I'm always wanting to snap a pick of my plate before I gobble it up just to show you. Blogs are a great way to let you gloat about yourself... haha
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.
