Really REAL Food 🍋
Sep 19, 2023
🌸🌷No two flowers are the same, so why should two mandarins, sweet potatoes, or lemons be the same? 😆
Be real - in a society that is so focused on perfection, it's a refreshing change to celebrate and enjoy glorious imperfections in our fruit and veg.
By celebrate I don't mean buy the plastic bag from the supermarket full of "ugly" apples - I mean really actually celebrate it!
Speaking of supermarkets - you've all seen the same same boring exactness of fruit and veg there - TRUTH IS - THIS IS NOT NORMAL - nature is not naturally like this!!!
The exact same same shape, colour and size fruit and veg only happens through years and years of highly controlled growing and all sorts of additions and chemicals which not only comes at a massive cost environmentally, it also costs YOU - same same often means flavourless produce 😢
Picture the perfect orange, now tell me that this orange tastes as sweet or as juicy as our freshly harvested fruit from Gayndah!
I'm tired of hearing that produce is second best if it isn't the right size or shape or colour or has a tiny little spot on it because the truth is - its pretty perfect!
According to foodbank.org.au, in Australia 7.6 million tonnes of food is lost or wasted every year with approximately 70% of this food being perfectly edible. 😱 UGGHHHHHH this doesn't have to happen!!!
Don't be scared by lumps and bumps and spots... It's just what real food looks like when it's grown in nature without a frankenstein cocktail of chemicals or genetic modifications.
This food is delicious, nutritious, and you might even get to have a little more fun preparing it too 🤭🍋
