Have you ever felt like you need to make a change in your eating habits but not really know what or how to do it? Well your change starts now; let the bounty of fresh produce be your inspiration. Inspiration can come from many different aspects of our lives; for example you are trying to lose weight or you have a picky eater at home, you grow your own vegetables in your garden or there is a new market with the most amazing looking produce. These are all great examples that will induce inspiration. Personally, I get inspiration walking into the NatureFresh™ Farms greenhouse and seeing acres and acres of beautifully perfect grape tomatoes. This gets me thinking of what to have with them; from a quick sear with fresh garlic and pasta to tossing them together with fresh herbs and a squeeze of lime juice. Often time’s creativity is sparked from something as simple as a smell; the smell of fresh cut grass, the smell of fresh lemon or lime, and the earthy smell of fresh tomatoes. All of these scents leave my heading spinning with ideas of what to create for dinner.
My creative outlet is through cooking .I will spend hours and hours in the kitchen cooking, baking and trying new flavor combinations with my wife and kids . This not only creates amazing meals for us, but creates lasting memories and hopefully future inspiration for my children. Food is the most powerful thing in the world as it brings families and complete strangers together. It evokes memories of parents, children, grandparents, families, friends, victories and losses. The memories that food has the power of evoking is endless.
Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
