Anti-Inflammatory Diet & Pyramid

The USDA has finally gotten rid of the clumsy, hard-to-follow food pyramid, and in its place is MyPlate.

Peas will be next ...

Back in the Saddle

Well. After a three month hiatus, what can I do, but soldier on. Next week is our first pickup of the season at our CSA. That seems like a great place to get back on the Real Food Road, because there is no food more real than food that was in the ground an hour ...
