Real Food

Can you spot the little green worm I nearly ate for breakfast? [yes, I was eating broccoli for breakfast. Sometimes you just want it!]

I didn't see it either, and it managed to survive a couple days in the fridge as well as being washed. I took a bite and he fell onto my shirt— that's how close I was! And then I started thinking that I'd probably already eaten one. I know that's part of getting local food— no chemicals to kill it— but I still can't get used to it.

A few months ago, I broke a bowl when I went to take a bite of salad and I saw something green crawling up my fork. In my surprise, I just threw the whole thing.

Don't worry, neither worm was harmed. I took them outside and put them in the garden.
