Something to chew on

Monday, July 06, 2009


So, last week we saw Food Inc. the day after receiving our first Food-to-Work basket of local fruits and veggies. And today, Cole and I signed up to start volunteering at the Capital Area Food Bank. I think I feel a shift happening.

No doubt, I won't be perfect, but my plan is to simply try to eat better and more locally. Too bad I can't grow chocolate chip cookies in the backyard.

Small sugar-free vanilla latte
Low-fat yogurt
Two hard-boiled eggs
(organic, brown, cage-free)

Leftover brisket from Saturday
Leftover mustard-roasted potatoes
(made from locally grown potatoes and yellow onions)
Baked zucchini slices
(locally grown)

Goat cheese and asparagus pasta (photo above, recipe)
(Texas goat cheese)
Fresh watermelon and cantaloupe
(both grown locally)
100-calorie snack cakes

  • I still want to see that movie...

    MAN...your meal plan sounds fabulous. I may have to try this pasta recipe...yuuuum!

    Those 100 calorie snack cakes aren't local though. /: Too bad sugar mama's is. (: Hahahah.

  • HA! Very true. I just picked up a vegan beauty from Sugar Mama's while running errands during lunch today. I'm anxious to try it this evening.

    And definitely do go see the movie. I think y'all both would enjoy it and appreciate the message.
