i long for the "simple" life, and if i lived it, food would be so different...
not overly processed
good for me
so different from what we eat now. and not crazy expensive to eat healthier.
however, i work at a fine establishment, and we sometimes get to feast on their delicious offerings. each tuesday, i work an early breakfast, and we often get to eat the spread. this morning we could choose from: fresh fruit, farm fresh eggs, buckwheat pancakes, sorghum butter, housemade bacon, local ham, housemade biscuits, gravy, jam made in-house, local honey, housemade yogurt, and the best granola ever. need something besides coffee? perhaps freshly squeezed juices- orange or grapefruit, or milk from a local creamery.
so we eat this breakfast and feel crazy energized for hours, and don't usually need to eat until dinner. it's not as if we super pig-out. it's because what we are eating are whole foods and wholesome. and of course, mighty tasty.
