I am trying to provide the best quality, natural and organic foods that I can find for me and my family. After having a health scare last October, I realized that I’m not eating as well as I thought I was. I’ve always eaten lots of vegetables, fruits and salads, and the last few years I’ve been seeking organic everything. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I craved baked potatoes and Caesar salad, and with my son it was BBQ ribs and hamburgers. I’m not a big red meat fan and one day I was at the grocery store and purchased some ready-to-eat BBQ ribs. As soon as I got home, I sat down at the table and started eating them right away. My husband came in and was floored when he saw me. He couldn’t believe his eyes and we still laugh about it. My son’s favorite food is BBQ ribs! Go figure!
One of my favorite foods is salad, all kinds of green leafy salads. My newest favorite is Kale salad. I like to add fresh beets, carrots, tomatoes, avocados, pumpkin and chia seeds. I try to eat an avocado each day and I absolutely love the Cherry Balsamic salad dressing I found. I make up a giant bowl of it on the weekend and keep it in the refrigerator to eat for lunch each day. I keep it dry and don’t add the nuts, avocado and dressing until that morning when I pack my lunch for work. It has worked out great and is really fast to make. What’s in your lunch?
1 bunch of Kale
1 carton of cherry tomatoes
Clean and chop above ingredients, refrigerate in big bowl.
Before serving, add the following:
1 TBSP pumpkin seeds
1 TBSP chia seeds
My son has a science project due soon, and he (we) decided to grow some of our own salad ingredients & strawberries for his assignment. His test will be which produce tastes better, ours or the ones purchased from the grocery store. I’m so excited, I’ve always wanted to grow my own vegetables and this was a perfect motivator to go out and get all the pots, soil and plants. We’ve been watching them grow for about 3 weeks now and we can already see some strawberries forming. He’s been taking pictures, watering and taking care of the plants. It’s a fun project! Here’s to healthy eating and growing your own food.
Thanks for reading!
Have a great day,
