I know I have been posting a LOT of garden photos but it’s just so amazing out there right now. Everything is growing and we have seen SO SO many butterflies this year. I don’t know if it’s the tomato/corn/squash/zuchinni flowers that are attracting them or if there are just more this year but it’s wonderful ❤️Both of my kids (who do not love tomatoes) have been eating these delicious sweet ones fresh from the garden. #momwin#garden
💖I love how the smallest of things (such as a blade of grass 🌱) can amuse a few chickens for so long...
Silkies are always so curious and adventurous, they’re always looking around for something to get into
But at the same time, they don’t like to stray too far from their coop
The peafowl on the other hand. . . Well let’s just say I’m shocked I even got all of these guys in the same photo 🤦🏽♂️

Chickens have been boycotting, pests have been eating and killing their fair share my stuff this year, and blackspot has claimed 2/3rds of my tomatoes but still able to harvest enough to have some good lunches over the next several days... sautéed okra, an egg over easy, and fresh sliced tomatoes is on the menu! One of my summer favorites!
People often ask about my "diet." Vegan? Paleo? Vegetarian? Keto?
Truth? I don't like restrictive rules and instead try to ~~focus on eating in a way that makes my body feel good.~~ Most days, this means lots of veggies, lean proteins and products without preservatives (because that's what works for ME), but there is nothing off the table. Deep dish in Chicago? Absolutely. German chocolate cake? Every year for my birthday. Everything in moderation is my key, but everyone has something that works different for them.
Perfect for the summer heat! Here's a delicious kombucha brewed by @nutritionwithclare! Red ones are green tea and hibiscus kombuchas flavoured with Strawberry, passion fruit and lime,
Pomegranate, passion fruit and lime,
Red currant and lime. White ones are kefirs flavoured with Elderflower and lemon, Elderflower and lime! Tag a friend who loves kombucha! 😍
If we are coming over for dinner... chance are we are bringing wine and something from the garden. The Cocozelle zucchini is one of my favorites. An heirloom zucchini dating back to 19th century Italy. #Magnus#cocozelle#growyourownfood

A couple of treats from the garden tonight: golden and red beets, basil, tomatoes, a zucchini and a cucumber. .
Remember when you eat local, grow your own and shop at the farmer’s market you are helping support local growers, helping reduce your environmental impact and eating ripe, freshly picked, nutrient-dense food. .
The above was grown in my city garden, on the third floor deck with all organic practices. It’s possible and easier than you think!
