One of the main things that is NOT local is our animal feed, importantly the organic chicken layer crumble and wheat berries that are important components of our laying chickens’ diets.  Also I know the local chicken we ate from Fox Farms was fed imported feed.  So although we have substituted grain in our diet with other carbs such as taro, sweet potatoes and breadfruit, we still rely heavily on grains for feeding our main protein providers.

The meowing cats outside remind me – this includes them!  Although I have now run out of catfood so am feeding the cats coconut, breadfruit, and kefir, all of which they love!  So I have to go make breakfast to provide them our leftovers…

Wednesday October 2nd

Eggs and breadfruit

breakfast –  2 of our eggs easy over on pan-fried breadfruit in macnut oil.  Simple, ono.  Banana-orange-ginger fizzy drink, in diluted sugar cane syrup.

Two fruit fizzy drinks just after preparation (so not looking fizzy yet)

Fermentation Station:  Two fruit fizzy drinks just after preparation (so not looking fizzy yet), kefir fermenting in background to right, kombucha covered by cloths to left.  This is all in same corner of kitchen counter as crockpot, which is usually going, so it gets added warmth.

lunch – salad with feta, hard-boiled egg, taro chunks, light mayo

snack – apple banana, one whole cacao bean, Jamaican lilikoi

dinner – kabota squash soup with edible hibiscus, garden herbs (see photo), coconut cream, chicken stock base.  Started on stovetop at lunchtime, then simmered in crockpot so I could work/run in the cooler afternoon and have dinner ready.  Added local hamburger meatballs.  Ohmyyumness.

The base of the pumpkin soup; lemongrass, hot pepper, scallion, ginger, turmeric
