Yesterday we visited the local market to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables for the upcoming week. We found a local store that advertised selling fruits and vegetables, I was so happy with the abundance and selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, with out dry goods.
I was comparing how I used to grocery shop vs. how we shop today. Now we buy fresh produce and hardly any processed goods.
In the past I used to get tons of packaged goods. With more and more additives and concerns about labels, I feel better getting fresh food. Organic is preferred and homegrown heirloom organic produce is the best! For now, until we plant our next garden, we have been enjoying the market. I am in love with the variety of bananas! I'm in banana heaven! All of the produce is wonderfully delicious and priced well. I wanted to share how I've changed my shopping patterns and now enjoy a bounty of fresh foods, a different haul each time, with the usual favorites. We live off plants and overall, feel great!
I made a vegetable mandala to show the beauty of whole vegan foods that are bright, colorful and inviting!
I am finishing up The Artistic Vegan Cookbook, due out at the end of this week! There are over 150 unreleased recipes that are some of my finest work to date, all vegan and gluten-free. I have been a bit negligent about posting new blogs, I look forward to coming back full speed with new recipes this August and sharing some savory pictures of what you can expect to find in my new cookbook. I hope you have all been doing fantastic, healthy and are having a wonderful summer!
