Honeycrisp Apple

Today, I have been home sick.  Lots of sleeping, and watching several documentaries about food on Netflix.  There are so many and they range from disheartening to terrifying.

About a year ago I significantly reduced the amount of wheat I eat and added a lot more rice, mostly organic.  Now, there is a report about arsenic in rice,  even organic rice.  What next?  What food can you trust anymore?

We’ll work harder at growing more of our own.  We just planted our fall-winter crops and put cold frames over some of the squash in hopes of bringing a few to edible size.   If you have a Vitamix, you can take almost any greens from the garden, add a few things and make a soup.  I’ve been doing that a lot lately.

The fruit triumph:  This photo represents the complete harvest from the Honeycrisp apple tree this year.  One apple but it’s perfect!

I can’t really save money on couponing because so many of the coupons are for proccessed foods, the kind of foods we are trying to reduce our consumption of.   I do trust the Bob’s Red Mill company and buy a fair amount of their products.  I came upon a great deal through Vitacost.  I had never heard of  Vitacost before but the offer of $10.00 off on my first order got my attention.   They carry a lot of brands, foods and supplements.  Bob’s was the only brand I ordered this time.    Their prices are already discounted significantly from the grocery stores and the $10.00 off just sweetened the deal, so I ordered.  In less than a week, the pantry was refilled with rice flour, gluten-free pancake mix and more.

I’m sharing that link here.   If you do order, I would really appreciate it if you go thru this link.  (They throw a little my way for the referral.)    It’s really a great deal!  I will certainly order from them again, probably quite regularly.


Give it a try!
