  • I'm in awe of the natural beauty of these whole foods! No need for any filter here to showcase lightly sauteed local vegetables (radishes, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, red onions) in evoo seasoned with Spanish rosemary sea salt along with delicious fresh BC sole, and local microgreens that are topped with a drizzle of @evoolution104 lemon evoo and white balsamic vinegar. All the flavors compliment each other so well. I kind of adore lots of vegetables. I could eat this meal at least twice a week! You?
@afinekettle is my most recent find here in Vernon. Yay! So many local BC seafood and fish goodies in this shop. Bought a few things. I'm a fan already!! (Thanks folks for your top-notch customer service and products. The sole was superb! And we enjoyed the Thai Curry for lunch today. Looking forward to tasting more.)
Stayed tuned everyone to what's coming up in my IG posts. Some amazing meals are in store.

  • Picture pretty. Add veggie power through colour and nutrition and watch it all disappear on plates. It was served with (first toasted) brown rice. Can I hear a yum?! Oh yeah. Twas so.
Here we have ground turkey lighted scrambled in @evoolution104 #evoo with a pinch of truffle sea salt. Then I set it aside while I sauteed the vegetables and greens which consisted of red onion, red cabbage, broccoli, carrots, kale, beet greens, and spinach. I had freshly made vegetable broth poured in to lightly steam. When tender crisp and just wilted, I mixed in the cooked turkey. Seasoned a bit more with local @vernon_farmers_market garlic powder, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Ready!
