Our family has made the decision to move back to simple food.
Breakfast is simply fruit by the hand. Apples, grapes, and bananas are our version of fast food on our way out the door. It keeps things simple when they are no kitchen tools or cooking necessary, no bowls or spoons to wash and no electricity used in making breakfast. We love fruit for fast energy and tasty treats.
Lunch is a luscious salad from our container garden or the local Farmer’s market. We tear up some greens like spinach and romaine to top with ripe tomatoes, crunchy carrots and celery, roasted almonds, spicy sprout combinations, and colorful peppers. Apple cider vinegar and olive oil meld it all together.
Our afternoon snack is a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit to keep us going. We buy nuts in bulk and bring our own cloth bags to the store when we can to reduce packaging and costs.
Our evening meals usually consists of beans, rice, and vegetables with a berry smoothie for dessert. We especially like cilantro and onion inspired black beans, red beans and Cajun rice, and stir fried vegetables with Bragg’s Amino for flavor.
I haven’t convinced my husband to go completely vegan yet but he may get there without really realizing that I was that sneaky. In the meantime we do enjoy simple food that only Mother Nature has processed.
