Keeping it Simple

Eat a whole leaf of garden chard and a tomato plain. No dressing.

So often we make cooking difficult. However, if we are making sure that our grocery bag has more whole foods than processed ones, they can be prepared in a simple manner and eaten by themselves. We don’t have to put them in elaborate recipes. We just have to develop our taste to enjoy them whole.

Buy a half peck of apples from your local orchard. An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
