There is something truly gratifying knowing the foods used to fuel my body and my children's bodies are not only whole, and "earthy" but delicious as well.
Based on my research and the goal to live a holistic approach to life and food, I am weening my family from meat products and becoming more plant-based. This was a no-brainer for my "woke", activist daughter, but my little guy who has the appetite of a 6' 8", 250lbs line-backer took more convincing.
So, today, I prepared a butter-milk and egg wash for my eggplant, seasoned with "southern staples" in the seasonings cabinet, with a rustic, harvest, garden salad. They devoured it!
My approach to food now is healing our bodies from the inside out.
Here's the menu and how these foods bless our bodies.
