    Usually, whatever food I have at the moment is my favorite:>) When I think of all the people who do not have food to eat regularly, I am grateful for every single bite that I enjoy on a regular basis:>)

    That being said, I think/feel that I experience even more pleasure and gratitude when eating the food from my garden. After preparing the soil, planting, watering and nurturing the plants, they produce WONDERFUL, DELICIOUS nutrients for the body, mind and spirit:>)

    One of my favorite recipes, which I just made from plants in the garden, is mint, lemon balm iced tea......

    Boil water, cut and chop peppermint and lemon balm leaves, steep the herbs in the water, add a little honey and ice....FABULOUS!!!

    It is refreshing and nutritious. The herbs and honey have anti-oxident, anti-bacterial, anti fungal properties. Mint is good for the digestive system and lemon balm supports the nervous system. Simple, delicious, nutritious and inexpensive:>)

      You have a garden that is great…
      These days I'm living alone for the first time in my life, and I really have difficulty with making different foods...
      And you know... Fast Foods are always there …
      But I don’t like to eat fast foods anymore... I should eat something better...

        I know fast foods are "always there", and that is one reason they are popular. It all depends on what you want to put in your body. My parents had a HUGE garden and I've always had a garden, so fresh nutritious foods have always been preferable to me. Fast foods are expensive, empty calories.

        I love stir fry...cooked in olive oil and garlic, and it's pretty easy. Cut up a bunch of veggies in advance, so it's "fast food" when you are ready to eat. Add meat if you wish...simple, nutritious meal:>)
