Week #1 complete

Celebrating completing the first week of "Eating What We Grow"
Well we not only made it through the first week of "Eating What We Grow", but we loved it.  I feel great and have solid energy.  Maybe I am bias, but eating from our gardens the food seems to have such vital force.  I am eating less heavy foods than I was used to, so I feel light and very alert and alive.

I am surprised by the diversity of our home grown diet.  I thought I would have a monotonous diet, bland and with very little variation.  The opposite has been the case.  For example, Jennifer harvested wild guava fruit from trees along our driveway.  We juiced the fruit with our champion juicer, mixed it with sugar cane juice and water, and WOW, fantastic!

For breakfast we had fruit (orange wedges, banana and papaya) over home made yogurt made with raw milk from our neighbors Brown Jersey cow.  Again, fantastic!

Lunch was fried eggs, avocado and home made salsa using our tomatoes and cilantro.
