Fall is coming, the light is changing daily as the sun falls lower in the sky and the days get shorter. While walking the farmers market, I noticed the stalls were thin on summer fare. Gone are the tomatoes, cucumbers and leafy greens. The fall varieties will soon be replacing their summer cousins.
A year round friend at the markets is garlic. This flavorful bulb adds so much to our meals. I found these bulbs with the stems still attached at the local market. I thought, we need this connection with where our food comes from.
For me, we are unable to grow a garden. I shop and support those that are able to grow the foods we need. Finding a little dirt or stem still attached keeps me connected to those foods.
Hi, I’m Deb Roedell, food photographer, who has discovered a love of Real Foods. Food that is grown and raised the way it was meant. Food that feeds and heals our bodies.
I’m taking Road Trips to find these Real Foods. The trips bring me to farms, farmer’s markets, locale stores and eateries. Each location has great and amazing new foods to offer as each season passes. I enjoy talking with the people at the markets and the farmers that grow these Real Foods. They pass on great ideas how to cook the produce that they grown and raise.
Meanwhile back in the kitchen I’m ready to pull out my cookbooks and get cooking with Real Foods. There are so many great recipes that showcase how good Real Foods can and do taste. These recipes also have me brushing up on some old techniques as well as learning some new one.
Please join me on this Road Trip to finding, cooking and enjoying these amazing Real Foods.
