Flavor Savors

The goal is to eat more real food and preferably, close to its just picked state which means less cooked.  But that can get boring, so we employ a few flavor enhancers to boost up the taste of real food.   

Here are a few suggestions for stocking up on some sure-fire flavor savors:

Essentials:  lemons, garlic, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, dried herbs (oregano, dill, rosemary, thyme), soy sauce, sugar, maple syrup, honey

Desirables: shallots, ginger, agave syrup, kalamata olives, fresh herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary, chives), balsamic and red wine vinegar

Delectables: strong cheeses (feta, blue and parmesan) which means a little goes a long way, toasted nuts (pine nuts, walnuts, sliced almonds), homemade dressings, miso paste, high quality balsamic vinegar (pours like syrup), sugar-free rice vinegar

Keep 'em Bowled Up

Crunch Time

Gives any well-intentioned cook, completely possible ways to get more real, fresh food onto the table without being shackled to a recipe or breaking the bank or getting an uprising from finicky eaters.
We are big on quick food prep - Chop Therapy - to make real food into fast food and we use what we term flavor savors that give a flavor punch to foods instead of using preservatives or processed ingredients.
We love getting the whole family involved in the food preparation effort. We also use some momgenutity for presenting real food in our homes so it stands a chance against the marketing assault of the Happy Meal.
Please share your ideas and share our posts with anyone you know who might want more real food in their meals.
