It has been a little crazy here this week, with The Boy starting school, and his birthday coming up, and I have not been in the kitchen as much as I would like. But I did want to share a resource with you, that I stumbled upon last week. It is a guide published by the Environmental Working Group called “Good Food on a Tight Budget”. If you have ever wondered if you were really getting the most flavor, value, and nutrition bang for your buck, but found the task daunting, this is the guide for you. The EWG has done the legwork, data-gathering, and math for you, and has come up with an extensive list of whole, fresh foods that are packed with the most flavor and nutrition for the dollar. You can access the list on the website, print yourself a copy of the booklet, or even purchase a hardcover copy if you want. I thought the list was very complete, and the information provided about the foods listed helpful. I think it’s definitely worth a look.
More food soon, see you then.
