Have you ventured outside your comfort zone lately? Perhaps it is time, try it for your children. They’ll love it.
In our never-ending quest to be adventurous and unique at our dinner table, my wife and I are always looking for new and interesting vegetables, cuts of meat, and cooking techniques. We admit…we are foodies, but more on that topic later. One of our techniques at the grocery store is to “walk the outermost aisles only”. This encourages you to stay in the produce, meat, and dairy sections while avoiding the sections containing processed or packaged foods. We are especially keen to this technique because our diet is primarily made up of vegetables, eggs, fish, nuts, and some fruit. Occasionally, when we have a few extra menu items we need to plan but lack the inspiration, we visit the meat department. Then it is time to “close our eyes and pick something”.
