I was finishing up some videos and slides for school and there was a whole thing on protein. There are so many “do this” and “don’t do this” when protein is the subject but really, it all comes down to the individual. I believe so much in bio individuality and my dream is to help more people in this world understand it! But back on protein, when you eat meats, you really should eat heaps of vegetables with it to help break down the protein which leads to better digestion. And oh my goodness, I see too many people eat meat and potatoes and no leafy greens or rainbow colored veggies! It’s extremely vital that you pair foods together that work well with digestion. Alright, enough about proteins!

If you didn’t know, we have a huge garden in our backyard…well, not HUGE, but big-ish. Anyway, here in Alabama, fried green tomatoes and squash are like the thing in the summer. So, we picked green tomatoes and the few squash we had and cooked those bad boys right up! Oh wow, so many memories growing up eating fried green tomatoes and squash. So darn good!

All I did was slice the tomatoes and squash and pat them on both sides in organic corn meal, salt, and pepper. And to fry them, olive oil is your friend. You can also do coconut oil…but I used coconut oil on the Lean Curry Burgers.

Again, not the healthiest, but hey, I don’t eat this very often.

That’s fried squash…in case you can’t tell. It’s not the prettiest, but hello, it tastes super amazing.

Got my plate full of veggies: sautéed swiss chard (from our garden), organic garbanzo beans, raw bell pepper, fried squash and green tomatoes.

Protein: Lean Curry Burgers! Recipe comes from the very creative Arman @ The Big Man’s World! These were very different from what I’ve ever made with organic beef but they were superb. I love curry and this definitely hit the spot!

Another picture…because it was really good.

And here’s the pictures of my garden…I got out in the wet grass this morning to take these, so please enjoy!

We’ve planted:

  • 2 kinds of swiss chard
  • spinach (but not it’s too hot for it to grow anymore)
  • basil
  • KALE!!!
  • potatoes
  • tomatoes
  • squash
  • carrots
  • spaghetti squash

And probably some more stuff that I don’t know about since my dad does most of the work!

    I need to try fried squash! I love it cooked in butter and onions. 😛
    Your garden is beautiful! I planted a garden this year too, but it was kind of last minute so not much has grown yet. But hopefully I’ll have tomatoes, peppers, basil, beans, kale, broccoli, carrots, and lettuce! I already have tons of mint from last year. I need to find something to do with all of it!
