Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Crunch through a Bunch. Day 16, 76 To Go....

Today it was that gratifying crunch of chopping through bunched up rainbow chard and silverbeet stalks that floated my sensory boat. What can I say? It's the simple things that excite me. But if anyone else out there listens to their food, we're related.

The leaves are still soaking in the sink in the hope that the water will do some magic rather than me having to wash leaves one by one. While shop bought ones generally don't come with much dirt, bits of pea straw and the odd baby snail, home grown do, so they some extra time - and if a grain of dirt makes it to the pot, so be it. A little clean grit can only do you good.

So, it's a fry up of tastefully dressed greens and a (home grown) cos lettuce, organic avocado and walnut salad for a family function tomorrow. If you read an earlier post about the cheap organic avos from up the South Gippy Highway, you'll also know that they've now ripened. All at once. Five of them, despite my carefully staggered ripening process... So, avos it is for breakfast (on toast with mint), lunch (in a chick pea and chicory salad) and tea (don't know how yet. It's only 3 o'clock).
