The one downside from making the effort to eat locally grown, whole foods as much as possible is having to wait until Saturdays to visit the farmer's market. Since I didn't go to the market last weekend, I'm pretty much clean out of any fresh produce. Even though I could have stopped in at the grocery store after work, I knew that I would rather wait until the weekend when I can go to the farmer's market and get the freshest produce I can find.
So I came home and made do with what I had on hand, and ended up making this awesome meal that really hit the spot. Click on the title of this post or the "read more" link to see how it all came together.
But perhaps the best reason for eating more locally grown, in-season foods is that it can help to encourage you to eat foods you normally would not. For me, that includes coleslaw.

I started this blog after deciding to give up on fad diets, listening to “experts,” counting calories,
measuring, logging, depriving, bingeing, and feeling guilty. All of that only served to make me
bigger, unhealthier, and unhappy. I finally decided to keep it simple: listen to my
own body and eat real food. I
started cooking with ingredients as close to nature as possible and one year later I
feel healthier and happier. I love food and I love cooking it. This blog is an ongoing collection of my new
and favorite recipes. Some, I’ve made
up, but most are inspired by what I see online. Feel free to browse, follow, and leave a
comment! Thanks for reading!
