The Backyard Diet.

As I was cleaning carrots I pulled from my mother's garden, I thought about A: the nutritional value and B: how happy these carrots must be to avoid processing, shipping and manhandling. And by carrots I mean me. If I were to go on the 100 Mile Diet I would have to subsist on apples, grapes, carrots, kale, potatoes, corn, onions and goldfish from the pet store.

  1. Ah yes, but you can season everything with delicious parsley. I planted a small patch last year which came back up double the size this year - not bad for an annual plant! Next year I suspect I will be eating nothing but parsley but at least I will have nice breath.
