Our supermarkets, with their sterile, plastic-wrapped packages of pre-butchered meat, do an effective job of shielding us from the reality of where our food comes from. That means that the meat you’re eating may not be as unprocessed as you think it is (vegetarians, that goes for you too!). Hopefully, this post will help you walk into the grocery store with eyes wide open so you can better decide what’s right for you.

This easy Egg Drop Soup has become one of my favorite weeknight dinner recipes… and what better time of year to share this recipe? Not only is it in keeping with the time-honored Jewish tradition of Chinese Food On Christmas, but it’s also a wonderful, warming comfort food on any chilly winter night.
I serve these eggs several times a week, adjusting the type of greens or other additions depending on what’s in the fridge. Sometimes I add mushrooms and bacon, sometimes onions and kale. Feel free to mix it up with whatever you have on hand.
Outside of the olive oil, salt, and pepper, every ingredient in my roasted potato and kale frittata came from our CSA so I knew they were “safe” for October Unprocessed… and when combined together, they made for an incredibly delicious and nutritious dish that’s perfect for breakfast or dinner!
I’d like to challenge all October Unprocessed pledgers to use this time to break old food habits and to freely discover new ones. Let this month be the catalyst that brings you your new perfect meal or a cleaner, healthier way to prepare an old favorite. To help you on your journey and to introduce Persian cooking, I’ve got here for you an exquisite (and super-simple!) recipe for Kuku Kadoo, an Iranian-style frittata with zucchini.
So rather than becoming a large, centralized farm, we’re recruiting small family farms to join us as suppliers. We now have more than 35 family farms producing eggs for us in seven Northeastern states. They’re all good, hard-working people who are committed to family farming.
The ability to make one good frittata recipe is something everyone should know.
I have flock of 14 hens. In a typical day, one’s broody, one’s molting, and a couple others are otherwise takin’ the day off. I’m still collecting about ten eggs per day.
