Hello blog, I've been a bad blog mommy and neglected you so. Unfortunately sometimes we go through phases where nothing we eat is exciting or fun, or we get really lazy and eat out a lot. But...SUMMER'S HERE!!! and that means lots and lots of stands at the farmers market full of delicious produce and more.
Food Inc , and reading In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan, I've really had to rethink my relationship with food and my duty as an inhabitant of this planet. It really is so important to try and eat locally and organic. The impact that industrialized food has on your body and on the earth is not worth the cheap prices or "delicious" taste that they supply. I know fast food is easy, so are microwave dinners and other prepacked meals. It's also certainly cheaper to buy industry food, but, BUT, think about it. The nutrients in industrialized are so lacking compared to naturally grown food that you have to eat so much more of it. So yes, organic food may cost more, but you will have to eat less, and you will probably enjoy it much much more. Okay I won't go on and on, but I urge you to read more about it and educate yourself about the food that goes into your body and the impact it may have on our planet.
tastespotting.com like I often do and I saw a post for Cherry Clafoutis. Well that particular recipe called for ingredients I didn't have, but after looking further I found this recipe from "Fork Spoon Knife" that seemed perfect. I wanted to include some rhubarb into it so I followed the recipe exactly except threw in about 3 stalks of rhubarb.
