You are what you eat

CSA veggies

My mother always told me, “You are what you eat!”  But it wasn’t until the past few years that it began to hit home with me. What we eat fuels our bodies, and if we do not consume good fuel, our bodies will not perform properly. Our immune system will begin to suffer. Energy levels will plummet. What we eat really does make a difference in how we feel.

I love to see this weekly box of fruits and vegetables arrive!


Cooking good, wholesome meals for my family is rarely an elaborate affair.


I usually roast the veggies, or sauté them up with some butter, sea salt, and a little white wine.


And if I’m in need of a really easy and quick meal in minutes, there are usually organic brown eggs involved.


And bacon. The really good stuff without icky preservatives or artificial additives. We try to consume only natural, wholesome foods. It may cost a little more, but we reap the benefits 100-fold.


Even the kiddos agree that this is a meal sure to please the taste buds and the tummy.

Totally agree with you about being frugal and eating good food, the two really go hand-in-hand.
