In case you missed “What is Real Food” here’s a recap…

Here’s a great reference from Food Myths:

Do you ever think about how far the food you eat travels? Who grew it? Who picked it?
How much in processing it’s been through before you took a bite?

Announcements!

This post is just to let you know a few things that are coming up! Nothing food/recipe/nature/health related in this post. Just so y’all know. Just some updates and announcements and such.

First off, starting this upcoming Friday (August 16th) I will be co-hosting Real Food Fridays with Mary from Mary’s Kitchen, Lydia, from Lydia’s Flexitarian Kitchen and Joyce from It’s Your Life!

Mary’s Kitchen

I can’t wait! It’ll be a weekly link party starting Thursday evening and running until Monday at noon. So feel free to come link up your real food recipes and links!! Wooo!!

Secondly, you may be wondering what on earth happened to my 5 part foraging series. I didn’t forget!!! I’m just waiting for a few later in the season plants to highlight! You can’t rush nature. When its in bloom, its in bloom =)

Thirdly, I will be taking a very short furlough from blogging September 4th-10th. I’m getting married!! And I’m going to be crazy busy with last minute prep, stressed over little stuff, running around like a chicken with my head cut off. That kind of stuff. So I’m letting you folks know ahead of time. Real Food Friday will still happen, since it’ll be scheduled, but no other posts during that time. Then the 11th you guys are going to have to deal with a post about my wedding. Just fair warning =)

4th, I plan to switch over to hosting myself sometime in the coming weeks!! (Not 100% what date yet). No more .Wordpress in my title. I’m moving on. Gettin’ fancy. I’m hoping its a clean switch when I do it, but I SUCK at technology. I’m amazed I’ve done this OK with it so far! So if there are any bumps going on, you’ll know why =)

And last but not least, I reached 98 likes on Facebook as of the day this post was published. So you can (almost!) bet your buttons I’ll be doing a giveaway of these here half gallon Mason jars!!

Head over and like the page, I just need 100 to do the giveaway. 2 days for 2 likes. That’s not too hard!

Thanks to everyone who’s following me so far, Facebook or not. I really do appreciate it =) Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!!

I’m just over here ogling the Swiss Chard…

Its Friday!! That means one of my favorite local farmers markets was open today. Me and my mom went down to look at their vegetables. I had to force myself to leave before I dipped into our rent money to buy veggies and mushrooms. I finally settled on some beautiful Swiss Chard (one of the prettiest leafy veggies out there, ranging from white stems to hot pink, bright red, and bright yellow) some organic Beech mushrooms, and a mix of white, purple/blue and red potatoes. All home grown in my county. Mmmmmmmm…… So good. I can’t wait to have me some salad and colorful potato soup =) Later this week when I make my soup I’ll share my super easy recipe.

I got all of this for $9.00. One of the absolute best places to get fresh in season fruits, veggies and home made bread is your local farmers market. I know this is stressed everywhere you look, but such a surprising amount of people just don’t go or don’t buy there. Its much, much cheaper then the grocery store 90% of the time, everything is fresh and most is local. I didn’t need very much this time because my fridge is too full of veggies

<and even veggies can be over eaten>

but the selection of wonderful things there is fantastic.

Enjoy some healthy food porn =)
