Local, organic, vegetarian..

Its farmers market season!! the corn sold for 50cents each, the whole head of cabbage for $1 and the peaches, squash and green beans for $2 per lb. The total for my veggies: $8 I also went to the local whole foods to get suitable vegetarian protein sources.. plain organic yogurt, organic extra firm tofu, cage free eggs, organic tortillas, and organic/HFCS free/natural bread, for a grand total of: $13.

It may not look like much, but for me this is a weeks worth of food. And-- dollar for dollar, the I've selected great sources protein for veg-heads(yogurt.. so delicious.. is a great way to make up for an otherwise low protein meal). I eat all of my meals at home.. with the exception of an occasional pizza slice or restaurant night out (I have a fondness for traditional food that involves some sort of process to eat..such as Ethiopian.. family style Italian.. Korean BBQ (although that is not an option as a veggie).. sushi..etc). Have you been eating out too much? Try staying in for a week! I find that I really enjoy the investment in my food, especially because local fresh fruit is sooo much better than anything you can buy at the grocery store.

In other news...As you can see by my lack of posts-- things have been quite hectic around the delicious consumption household.. but never fear! I still need to eat, and where there is food, there will be blogging! As many of you know, I am about to start a part time law program (yup I am also keeping my full time job). Law school starts mid-August, wish me luck!!
