Last night I cooked a real meal for my family, based on this recipie.

We eat out pretty often, and I worry a lot about the food we get. It's usually very salty, but my American palette just says “Yum!”. It’s also safe to assume that restaurants cook with hydrogenated oils. The produce has pesticides & wax. The pre-made stuff has preservatives. There’s artificial colorings. And some entirely manufactured “foods” that have no nutrition at all, like soda.

We eat out because it’s tasty, and it’s easier that cooking at home. (The difference isn’t so great when you add the challenge of parenting in a restaurant.)

So it was cool to make last night’s meal with almost all organic ingredients. It included a salad of broccoli, yellow carrots, mushrooms, hard-boiled eggs, and crumbled bleu cheese.

Thanks to my wife for keeping the kitchen stocked with healthy, fresh, organic ingredients. It’s hard enough to keep a family fed; it’s even harder to do it right.

Organic produce from Pioneer Organics. Organic lamb & other items from Azure Standard.
