Did you know that hard-boiled eggs aren't supposed to be boiled? I didn't. I've never liked them, so I'd never learned how to make them. I only started eating eggs about 11 years ago, when I found out I was sensitive to gluten and could no longer eat bread or oatmeal for breakfast. (I know … Continue reading Simmered eggs
I know this isn't about food, but it does involve a grocery store... Sunflower Farmers Market has a great sale on Seventh Generation products right now through Wednesday. For example, the 50 oz laundry detergent, usually around $10, is $4.99. A 12 roll pack of toilet paper, also usually around $10, is also on sale … Continue reading Seventh Generation products on sale

I thought that might mean there would be great sales this weekend to eliminate the majority of their inventory. That’s apparently … Continue reading Whole Foods Trolley Square
I made the rounds of the local markets yesterday, and man... shopping local is NOT fast. I left home just before noon and went to Oasis Cafe first to visit Chad's Produce. There, I bought eggs, spring mix greens, a yellow squash, and leeks. Next I made a quick detour to our landlord's credit union … Continue reading Saturday shopping

I had no idea I was part of a Movement. I didn't even know there was a Food Movement going on. I just thought I was on a personal quest to make healthier food choices and get rid of the pain in my gut. A couple weeks ago, I saw something about the TEDx Manhattan … Continue reading The Food Movement – will Foodies save the Greenies?
