What Do I Do With Vegetables?
February Blog posts will be devoted to VEGETABLES! Woohoo!
Ahhh, the precious VEGETABLE. Everyone knows what healthy food is, and everyone knows we would benefit from eating more of these precious whole foods. Yet, people still approach me asking, "What do I do with VEGETABLES? Actually, to tell the truth, I get it.
Before we get started with VEGGIES I want to let you know that I added a new catagory to my Blog, which is called my "Journal". It includes some of my personal food adventures as well as some writings/stories from my up coming memoir and cook book. Posted recently is a fun missive, called My Girl, which might awaken you to relate to your body in a new way. Read My Girl here.
Now, let's get ready for VEGETABLES!
When I go to the farmers market, or a local farm where I can pick my own VEGGIES, I ALWAYS over buy. I just can't help myself, especially when I get to pick my own. It is so much fun to pull a huge beet out of the Earth, that I do it over and over again. Then I spend the next few hours trying to figure out what I am going to do with them while they are still fresh, and/or whom I am going to give them to.
If you are like me, my recommendation is to shop for your fresh VEGGIES at least 2 to 3 times a week. It is vital, though, that you consider your own lifestyle, where and when you buy, and how much time you will have to consume your new beauties. When I used to buy once a week, I would get too much at once, so now I shop more often. Fresh food takes more frequent shops. That’s all there is to it. For me, I would almost rather go without than to have to throw them out.
So, when you have been lured by the beauty of fresh produce, along with the intent to eat tons of them in the coming week, you better be prepared to gobble them up within a few days before they loose their appeal.
This months posts are designed to help you organize and come up with simple, yet delicious ways to consume all the beautiful produce you just brought home from the market or the garden. Check into the Blog during the month because there will be many more posts all about VEGETABLES! Below are 3 to get started with:
