Have you watched "Food Inc"?
This documentary serves as a huge eye opener. It exposes the American food industry which seems to be more focused on profit then consumer health.
In the spirit of being a little more conscious of how we buy our food, we headed to our local farmer's market on the weekend.
One of our purchases was an organic, grass-fed T-bone Steak from a nearby farm a little bit upstate.
It was a little bit pricey, but worth the splurge for a Sunday lunch.
I wanted to keep it simple, so I seasoned it with a little bit of garlic&onion rub and a sprinkle of aromat.
I then seared it on both sides and put it in a 350F oven to finish cooking.
I served it up with some Salt and Vinegar roasted potatoes (recipe) which turned out delicious!
Oh! And what else did I get up to on the weekend?
On Friday I diagnosed myself with 'UTI' (thanks google!) and thought id be smart and treat myself by just drinking about 2 gallons of cranberry juice. Well, apparently I'm not much of a doctor because I ended up in the ER the next morning with the most severe back pain I have ever known.
(Is this what labour feels like?)
The infection had started to spread to my kidneys. Great!
After picking up some prescription pain killers and anti-biotics I am feeling 99.9% better!
Yay for modern medicine.
This picture kinda cracks me up!
