“Preparing” your recipes involves not only putting the ingredients together in a palatable manner; more importantly, the ingredients must be grown and harvested in a manner conducive to uploading the maximum healthy ingredients from the soil – and – a growing/harvesting method that guards against poisonous pesticides, fertilizers and other top-dressing of unhealthy chemicals and additives. Sustainable, organic gardening methods allow the “ingredients” that become our food/recipes to also become the best foundation for our nutritional health.
I vowed when beginning this site to be fairly narrow-focused on food alone; there are endless other blogs covering every imaginable subject. But… there was a recent USDA agreement that now allows genetically modified alfalfa seed. We may not eat alfalfa, but the meats we eat and the bees that pollinate our veggies…ARE involved. I believe that information is directly related to the recipes you and Jan and I create here. Some of that information can be found through some of the blogs in our blog roll to the right.
There is a grassroots push nationwide over the past few ears to allow poultry raising; even cities such as New York, Seattle, etc are giving in to the growing need for us to feed ourselves home-grown, healthy food. The economics behind this push certainly aid the cause!
Jan and I hope for an interactive site here; if you have other websites that fit into these categories mentioned above, please, comment or send us an e-mail:
Paprika Peppers…coming up.
As always, Nature prevails.
