My first speaking engagement is tomorrow!! If you are attending Farm Where You Live Homesteading Festival in Asheville, NC, come check out my workshop 10 Herbs You Need To Grow. Each one will have a culinary, medicinal, garden, and livestock use. Handouts are ready and hot off the press. See you at 9 am Workshop Tent B.
Yesterday I spent some time harvesting some herbs from the greenhouse and foraging dandelion and wild radish leaves from the garden. Taking the time to connect with nature and to have the gift of nutrient dense food from my own yard is such a blessing. To be able to grow herbs not just for flavor but also as medicine to heal and strengthen our bodies is allowing us to enjoy this beautiful life we are creating to it’s fullest.
Taking time to make our health, both mental and physical, our priority is the best gift we can give ourselves. Turning to nature and plants nutures our bodies and helps us avoid illness and disease. Yes, the grocery store is quicker, but a quiet morning of cleaning, chopping and preserving food from my own garden is time and energy that is a joy to spend.
I made cheese last night, which I was super excited about. I used it on fajitas that also had cilantro from the garden and homemade salsa. So this morning it seemed fitting to use it again. I fried avocado with bagel seasoning mix. I cut a bell pepper into slices to cut cook eggs in. Diced the scraps and added onions, sweated those down. Air fryed some some hash browns. Assembly: hash browns, peppers and onions, egg in pepper slice. Toppings: fried avocado, fresh queso blanco, cilantro.
