Summer Food

So unlike the rest of the world, Bermuda’s summer means no farmers market! Where others have come to the best part of their growing season, we have begun a period of high heat & sun with only brief showers. So for me my favourite times of the year are spring & fall. The weather is gorgeous & I can get tons of goodies at the farmers market.

During spring I eat very simply, less cooking more raw, less ingredients more flavour, I let what is on my plate do all the work.

I feel so healthy & happy when I eat this way.

Even my dogs get the benefits, I cook their meat & mix in juice pulp & veggies. Their skin & coats are way less irritated on this diet. Interesting huh? Especially as I suffer from allergies that can effect my skin too. Something I suffer from less when I’m eating better.

All my daddy wanted for Father’s Day was for me to cook him dinner. & make my “deconstructed” chicken pot pie like I did for Mother’s Day. Unfortunately he was away so missed it, except for the tantalizing pic on IG. So I made him some of his own… With local corn on the side!

My awesome daddy also got me a Breville blender! Which I love & which made me this!
