Natural foods


I think it is something about the weather getting nicer that draws me to eating better. Lately I have been trying very hard to only eat real food. By "real" I mean an actual carrot, broccoli, banana... you get the idea. I want to eat something natural. Today I put a banana in the blender with milk and a little honey and that was breakfast! All natural. Nothing out of a box or can. I have carrot sticks for snacks, rice (not the minute kind)... I just want to eat things that aren't processed. So today I had a nice articoke as a snack. I love love love artichokes! If you've never cooked one here is a good website with info: Click here
I cook mine and dip them in melted butter and lemon juice. I don't really like the way the ones soaked in oil taste that are in jars.
So that is what is new with me. I am just trying to eat better.

I also have the honey bear print up at etsy now.

I so agree with you. I was offered some over processed pocky sticks this morning and I think I gagged. So believe in listening to what your body needs to eat rather than 'wants' to eat. The artichoke sounds divine.

Wow, I had no idea how to eat artichoke - I would like to give a try one day. Thank you for sharing!

Woah! I saw the picture of the artichoke and thought YUMMM! I love them just like that with the butter, lemon, and salt. I also had a recipe with them steamed like that and then cold with a lemon cream dipping sauce--fantastic! Have a great day!

Yum...I also adore artichokes cooked and dipped in melted butter whilst still piping hot!
Artichokes are also beautiful as a centre piece filled with a t-light.very pretty!
I think that's a great idea to eat all natural foods...
Have a wonderful day...atleast it's not raining like yesterday!

Bonjour Tascha! Yes! It must be something special is in the air! I too have been on a healthier than healthy way of eating! I try to replace lunch of supper with a salad, and that is 7 days a week. And I do feel much better for it! I too love artichokes! And you know what? I grew them in the garden last year and on 3 plants I harvested 16 buds! Your painting is so sweet! Have a great week!

I love this, it is soooo cute

Dean Grey said...

Tascha!

The funny thing is you're eating healthier with the artichoke but ruin it by adding all the saturated fat from the butter!

But.......

I would've added the butter too so I'm one to talk!

Oh, and the bear print....adorable as always.
