The Zero Mile Diet.
Have you heard of the 100 miles diet? Basically you try to eat only food that has been grown within a hundred miles from your place. There goes my banana bread problem, the banana crop in Canada hasn't been doing so well lately. The thinking is that this will save the environment from the effects of transporting food. This evening I had a zero mile diet. Everything that I ate, I grew myself, including dessert. Makes me feel good when I grow healthy food for myself, very heritage or back to the land like the hippies in the sixties.
I'm no chef but it turned out well.... yum! Little bit of butter, a little bit of salt and pepper and I am ready for my meal. I decided to have a vegetarian meal to make it really healthy but I could have used eggs from my hens for protein. Now if I could figure out a way of cleaning the kitchen without having to do dishes!
