As I was chopping veggies for cream of vegetable soup this evening, I had to snicker at the reputation traditional foods has (especially Nourishing Traditions!) as being "meat heavy." I've even seen people try to claim that NT tells you not to eat vegetables! Too funny. I admit my veggie consumption was never the best, but it wasn't awful, yet I feel like I'm eating more fresh produce now than I ever have! And not nearly as much meat as I had expected.
Still feel like I'm spending all day in the kitchen, but I guess I'm getting used to it!
