I've been traveling so much for quite a while now and think that let me forget a little, on a personal level, how much I value local food! I'm certainly passionate about sustainability in many aspects of my life- so traveling practically full-time is a bit of a challenging situation in that regard.
This last week I spent time on my friend's small farm/property on Vashon Island(near Seattle, WA), and got to pick away/forage to my heart's content. It was so good for me in so many ways, revitalizing. I loved eating fresh-picked everything- much of what I ate was plant to plate in a matter of minutes.
There was a volunteer kale field (pictured above) where I would head out to for practically every meal as it was abundant and delicious!
I picked/used/ate a nice number of herbs/greens/berries while I was there. It was lovely and I'm looking forward to greening up my life and being more sustainable with my food choices even while traveling.
Below was a morning ritual I liked quite a lot~
Breakfast was lovely for me. I woke up, and each day after taking care of the animals, went foraging for breakfast! This was a lovely smoothie~ the main flavors seem to be the yummy combination of mint and spirulina. Try it!
Dandelion greens(large handfull or two)
Mint leaves(large handfull)
Hemp Oil(1 Tbsp)
Nut Butter/nuts (1 Tbsp)
H2O to blend :)
