The answer might just lie somewhere far away from what the industry has to offer. This is a starting journey and exploration in to home gardening and eating for wellness.

Throw it together and chew it up
I was hungry. I was in a hurry. This is my typical excuse when I have eaten something odd that was put together at the last second because I wanted something, but the "on the run apple and peice of cheese" wasn't cutting it today. I told you I wouldn't share it if it wasn't worth eating, and I really started to not show you this one, but I thought to myself that this is exactly what eating for wellness is all about - making the effort to find a few wholesome things, throw them together, spice 'em up and chew it up. I enjoyed this lunch, and it's a good example of something you can do with leftover noodles from the night before. I took some frozen green beans from this summer's garden and cooked them soft with salt, pepper, and a touch of oregano to give the beans a little italian flare. We had some rice noodles leftover from last night's dinner, so I tossed them in a little oil and salt and slapped them beans right there on top of them there noodles and dang! Like I said, it was good. We got the rice noodles from Trader Joes - they look clear in the package, but they cook up white and they're really good the next day too. Try it out and let me know what you think.
