About Food

Friday, August 17, 2012



For the past 2 months, Zach and I have been on a health kick. Well, I should clarify: I do most of the grocery shopping, so Zach doesn't have much of a say (muahah!) And, it's not really a "health kick," it's probably more of a "whole foods" kick. More and more, I've been trying to remove processed foods from our diet.

So, we've been eating less frozen meals, and granola bars, and mac'n'cheese, and pasta and replacing them all with natural (and organic) substitutes. It makes life a little more difficult (since everything's fresh, I'm cooking without any shortcuts) and it's more expensive. But, it feels good to know we're not ingesting as many harmful chemicals. As long as it comes from nature (to clarify, a plant in nature,) I don't think we can go wrong.

Sprouted Kitchen has been a life saver. Her recipes have become a weekly staple around our house (I think I've made the Mushroom & Poblano Tart three times already.) But, we also juice our veggies every morning, eat a big bran-ful breakfast, drink lots of green tea, take our daily muti-vitamins, rarely eat dairy or meat (unless it's fish), and chomp down on lots of leafy greens.

What do you do to stay healthy? Do you have any suggestions for Zach and I? Anything I missed? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
