In the Name of Good Food
What do I mean by "good food"? While taste is always preferable, I mean good-for-you foods. Recently, I made this tomato sauce from scratch. In a word - AMAZING. Amazing not due to my culinary skills but by the mere fact that I used basic, all natural ingredients: tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil. I had a similar experience when dining in Italy- everything just tasted better because it was so fresh and homemade. I will never return to jar sauce again.
This dining experience has inspired my new plan to eat more naturally. Eat whole foods (not necessarily from that pricey chain). I never felt better when I was eating that series of alkaline foods. I felt pure, clean, and full of energy. Eating process foods makes me feel so heavy and slovenly. I wish to be kinder to my body and my health. So here's to making more dishes from scratch, using the very basic and healthy ingredients.
