Final weekend C was travelling so I had the home all to myself. He really travels quite a bit for work, so it’s nothing I’m not used to, however I often make the most of this time to hang around with my girlfriends and sometimes (although not usually) get some work achieved. However this previous weekend I made a decision to provide myself a weekend of ME. After a tremendous hike by Lands Finish on Friday and a few drinks on Ocean Seaside, I made a decision to embrace my solo weekend and determined to not schedule any plans.

It’s in all probability been years since I’ve achieved one thing like this, and positively not since shifting. I’ve been overcompensating even for my ordinary social self to make sure I’m constructing a strong neighborhood right here. It’s been fantastic getting to fulfill so many new folks and in addition dangle with my crew already right here, however girlfriend wants a bit alone time every so often, so I took my alternative and ran with it.

At any time when C travels I indulge myself by watching all of the bizarre and area of interest Netflix documentaries that I do know he would by no means need to watch. The newest in my string was “Sustainable”, which I extremely advocate watching for those who haven’t. It’s an eye-opening have a look at how agriculture is run in North America and the issues which have come of it. However it additionally serves as an essential reminder of WHERE our meals comes from, even when at instances it feels prefer it comes from the grocery retailer.

By far, one of the crucial beneficial items I’ve taken from operating THM is how a lot of the meals trade I’ve gotten to see and expertise with my very own eyes. Whether or not it’s exploring the avocado farms of Mexico or the Orange Groves of Florida, this house has afforded me some unbelievable alternatives that I want all of you could possibly expertise.

It’s allowed me to see first hand the place our meals comes from and make extra educated selections once I’m choosing up my groceries. I feel it additionally makes an enormous distinction while you’re assembly the farmers and getting a greater perceive of who you’re supporting while you buy a product.

Take, for instance this Orange Coconut Baked Tofu. After my journey to Florida, I’m going out of my technique to help Florida orange farmers. Maybe its as a result of I really feel a connection to them, or perhaps it’s as a result of I’ve an amazing understanding of their well being advantages, however I do know I attain for a glass of Florida orange juice in terms of making OJ selections. Facet note- do you know that florida oranges produce far more juice, which is why they’re typically used for orange juice?! 

I feel it’s so essential that we educate ourselves, but additionally future generations concerning the roots (actually) of our meals. I do know that I’ve unbelievable privilege to have the ability to fly to Florida to see the orange groves myself, nevertheless it can be so simple as visiting a farmer’s market or reaching out to an area farmer. Ask them the place it’s grown. Ask them concerning the well being advantages of that particular product. Get to know what produce your area is understood for.

Florida is understood for its citrus and actually, when you attempt it, you get why. Artichoke season is ramping up in California and Ontario makes among the finest peaches I’ve ever tasted (sorry Georgia!). After which get inventive along with your meals. Take OJ – after all it’s scrumptious with breakfast, nevertheless it additionally makes an superior savory addition to meals. Even for those who’re not ingesting it, it’s nonetheless an amazing supply of vitamin C, potassium and folate. P.S. You’ll be able to study extra concerning the well being advantages of oranges HERE.

Perhaps I’ve simply spent the previous few days alone, however meals is so freaking cool. Whether or not its attending to know its origins or seeing how the sweetness of oranges pairs with a savory dish, meals and the components that embody our meals include a lot depth and historical past.

Alright, I’m achieved geeking out on these items. Again to civilization…
