You know the weirdest thing about my journey of taming my PCOS and Type 2 diabetes with healthy food?
Now I genuinely prefer to eat a big bowl of broccoli than a slice of chocolate cake.
I know. It sounds strange to me too.
But it’s true.
a) Because broccoli from the farmers market served with a tasty sauce, is so so delicious.
b) I feel good after eating the broccoli.
After the chocolate cake? Not so much.
So I’m always on the lookout for new blogs and books produced be people who love vegetables as much as I do.
My favourite, favourite blogger who fits the description (and happens to also be a veggie farmer) is the lovely Andrea from Dishing Up the Dirt (DUTD).
My copy of The Dishing Up the Dirt Cookbook is well loved. I’ve cooked so many dishes from it. And have used many as a springboard to my own creations.
I love that the recipes are simple and packed with veggies. I also love that there’s bacon. And the occasional steak.
I also love that Andrea has a deep appreciation for sauces. And includes an ‘ode to sauce’ at the beginning of the book.
A girl after my own heart.
If you’re looking for a new book to get inspired about cooking with amazing fresh produce, I highly recommend it!
