santa barbara country n news-farm to fork day

yesterday as i put the finishing touches on the rainwater barrels for catching rainwater to use in our garden i texted my wife she
lets do a farm to fork day for supper tonight
how about a stir fry of what i can find in the garden

the last several months i have become more and more vegetarian and have cut down on my cheese intake and rarely eat meat
now i not oppose to my eating meat
i usually dont eat it unless its served to me
i use to eat a turkey sandwich every day with a slice of cheese on it but since we have had so many tomatoes the last few weeks i found i am mostly eating a tomato sandwich for lunch each day

what i have noticed is that i had to get my drill out and find the right bit that was the same size of the hole in my belts and drilled another hole in my belts to keep my pants up

i was recently weighed and was found to have lost about 8 lbs in those last few weeks
all done gradually by eating mostly veggie stuff

so i told my wife she yesterday right before i left the garden that i would find whatever veggies i could to throw in the stir fry

here is what i found
red amaranth
green amaranth
curly leaf kale
dinosaur kale
walking stick collard
bell pepper
banana pepper
jalapeno pepper
malabar spinach
three different basils a purple one a greek one then the usual green sweet one
two different mints
squash flower
some unknown asian vine a fellow gardener gave me to stir fry from her garden
french cut green beans
as i got home i grabbed some garlic and onion from storage in our garage

all these things were from my garden

i chopped them up
stir fried them with olive oil and seasonings and a sesame sauce for stir fry
this was then served over rice
with some fresh tomatoes on the side

thats how you lose weight without really trying
eat quite healthy while you are at it

also i have noticed eating this way has eliminated some stomach issues i was having

if you mind your diet you will live longer and healthier
