Now that we're a few days into 2012 and back into a routine (up at 5:30am, work out, soup in the crock-pot, ready to start work again) I thought I would share a few of my nutritional goals for 2012.
1. Going meatless 1 day a week. It took me a few weeks to talk Chris into this but we will be trying for one meatless dinner per week...starting tonight with black bean soup and homemade bread (see below).
2. Baking our bread. Bread isn't that hard to make and I like the idea of having control of our food. I made a few loaves of country french bread on Sunday and will be posting the recipe. I think I will be baking it every other week as we don't eat a lot of bread.
3. Supporting local farmers/local shops. We already buy most of our pork and beef from Ohio farmers but I would like to increase our support of the local Ohio food economy. Most of our favorite restaurants are locally owned as well.
What are your goals for 2012?
