Union Square Farmers Market: Hell yeah!

Man, it’s hot out there! Too hot. I knew it was going to be a very tough task to take the subway from Harlem down and across to Union Square for the farmers market, but I took my man-pill and did it. And, boy, did it pay off.

The farmers market was so boss today. There was an abundance of everything, and I didn’t even get there early for the morning rush. It should have been leftovers-town by the time I made it there, but there was still SO much to choose from. It blew my mind.

Why go to the farmers market? Isn’t it a bunch of farming hippies who will try to make you read Kerouac and sing Hare Krishna? (Actually, there are hippies that dance around and sing Hare Krishna, but they’re off to the side.) I digress!

Cook Your Food, Dammit!

About to make a fierce one-egg omelet with some spinach, asparagus, mushroom, onion, and some grated cave-aged cheese. Pretty much all of the ingredients are from my local Farmers' Market. Eat local. Why? Because it's good for you and the responsible thing to do as a person.

This is my boyfriend. He is a genius and knows so much about food. He's really good at cooking, and I am learning from his mad culinary skills. We don't diet. We cook healthy food that is so delicious, I don't want to eat out.

This is a healthy, homemade pizza. The dough is a combination of semolina flour, unbleached flour, yeast, water, and honey. The pizza sauce is THE EASIEST TOMATO SAUCE RECIPE EVER. Salad on top? YES. Are those pepperonis I see? NO. Those are zucchinis pretending to be pepperonis, you fool.

I'll cook my dinner ahead of time and take it to work with me. I try not to eat past 9pm, but it's not something I live or die by. I will say that the cuter the tupperware, the more likely I am to use it. Shallow? Yes. Does it keep me healthy? Yes.

Chopped rosemary, garlic, and chili. I grow the rosemary and the chilies from the windows of my Manhattan apartment. If I can do it, you can do it. Great way to know exactly where your food comes from. Now, this trifecta of awesomeness is going into the oven with some sweet potatoes and EVOO to make crispy rosemary potato wedges. YUM!
