This is what my mother would tell me when my toddler was hungry. She always pushed aside all of the granola bars, goldfish crackers and food pouches and would reach for something that she considered "real food" - some homemade Arabic food, usually a bowl full of cooked vegetables, soaked rice and meat, seasoned and cooked in broth, and topped with plain yogurt and nuts browned in butter.
Now that's how you feed a child. And an adult.
We believe that food should be satisfying, delicious and nourishing. Here are the foods that we focus on in our household:
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
plentiful, in season and local
grassfed butter, ghee, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, unrefined coconut oil
Whole Grains, Nuts and Legumes
always sprouted, fermented or soaked
grassfed meats, poultry, wild-caught seafood, organ meats
cultured condiments, cultured dairy and vegetables, kombucha
milk, cream, cheese, butter
molasses, honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, sucanat
from chicken, beef or lamb bones
We are "traditional foodies" - we believe that the most nourishing foods are the foods that have sustained generation upon generation of foods, prepared by time-proven methods.
