the importance of food

We are still in lockdown, though not quite so locked down as we were, restrictions are gradually being lifted here in the UK, D is no longer furloughed and back at work. I'm still working from home, but for us we are still happily taking things slowly. Not venturing far, the occasional bike ride around the local roads and bridleways. The last time I visited an actual shop was something like 12 weeks ago. Of course we are still shopping for food, just in different ways. We have organic fruit and vegetables delivered weekly from Cofco, if you are local to Cambridge I can't recommend them enough. We cook from scratch so we've been sourcing grains, pulses, flour and some dairy online from small producers as well as picking a few bits here are there in the garden. We now know exactly where our food is coming from and I think we'll continue this way of shopping in future, the choice is amazing. 
  • garden salad of salsify leaves, chives, and walnuts
  • D's sourdough bread
  • homemade soya yoghurt
  • Dorset Vinny open sandwich with sprouted mung beans and alfalfa
  • garden salad of lettuce, spinach, chard, courgette, chives, celery leaf, sprouts, pansy flowers
  • growing a SCOBY
  • vegan mushroom and rice burgers cooked on the barbeque
  • lunchtime platter, more Dorset Vinny, sprouts and Netherend Farm butter
  • my homebaked super seedy bread
None of the links in this post are sponsored, just producers I love. I should also add a favourite for grains and pulses, again fairly local to us is Hodmodods and for the most delicious craft beer I recommend another local Turpins Brewery
