The best thing I've done for my health this year is to stop looking at price tags on produce. Winter produce is more expensive and less exciting. You pay more and you get less. But this year, I decided to buy the best and funnest produce I can find. Ten pounds of fruits and vegetables - no matter how pricey - still costs a lot less than ten pounds of meat or fish. Plus it's better for me.
Here are some of my recent splurges.
Broccoli, for Oven Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Parmesan.
Baby bok choy, for sauteed veggies with tofu (haven't had a chance to post that one yet).
Fresh beans, for Simple Cranberry Beans.
Pineapples, for Green Salad with Oven Dried Pineapples.
Chard, for Simple Sauteed Swiss Chard.
And lot of Meyer lemons, for anything that calls for lemon juice or zest.
What changes have you made to improve your health this year?
