So ive noticed a common reaction when I mention I dont eat grains.
"Gasp! What do you eat then?"
Now im not sure where this idea came from that without grains theres somehow nothing left to eat...
That somehow life isent worth living without a slice of toast or a pile of pasta.
But heres a thought.. try eating that toast without anything on it.. thats right.. no jam, no cheese.. not even a pat of delicious butter.. Kinda bland isent it?
And that pile of pasta.. dosent taste that great without the meaty bolognese sauce or a rich carbonara does it?
Truth of the matter is that most Grain dishes are merely the delivery service for more flavorful foods.
Id rather just eat the yummy more nutritionaly dense stuff thank you very much....
So what do I eat?.. All of the below list for starters (and no, this is not an all inclusive list, just a taste of what I eat)
Lets start with vegetables.
Celeriac (Celery Root)
Red Leaf Lettuce
Spring Baby Lettuce
Sugar Snap Peas
Sounds really limited dosent it? & thats not even taking into account of all the wild growing things I add to my diet like Nasturtium flowers & leaves (yes, there edible & lovely in a salad) Nettles, Wild rose petals, Dandelion leaves, Fire-weed shoots, Chanterelle Mushrooms and many more.
I try to source only pastured meat where possible, buying from local farmers that care for their animals. I often buy unusual cuts and offal meats where available.
Fish (Pretty much anything edible as I like trying new things)
Fruits are dependent on season & I will get more of stuff thats in season (I eat a lot of strawberries in the summer as I can get them from the farmer just down the road :) )
So that's just the basics, I haven't even listed stuff like dairy, nuts, spices or oils.
I will be posting pictures of some of my meals, with descriptions & even recipes when available (although I do tend to cook a lot without following a recipe).
