I am still amazed by the level of ignorance about the food we eat and where it comes from. listen to this page here
Just today in Cheltenham High Street, the fashionable twist on the fruit and veg man selling you boxed fresh seasonal – delivered to your door, was offering passersby tomatoes!
Tomatoes grow in the summer. Only this time of year in heated greenhouses both in northern and southern Europe.
I have put together seasonally based recipes that try to follow the growing pattern for where we live. Also giving warming or cooling properties needed for the seasons.
Are you a ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ person? The foods you eat have a very big effect. Fried food creates a lot of internal heat which will manifest in redness in the skin.
Cold Salads in the winter will chill your bones – we need warming soups.
Here is a pdf recipe Spring Hot Salad to warm us this time of year but also not overheat us.
The project is to write for all seasons as many homemade, in Caspar’s Kitchen as I can.
I will give away some of these recipes to you and when the collection’s ready you will be able to download via Kindle.
Don’t forget my Nutrition and Fitness in a Week is already available and has many recipes and ingredients to get you started.
