Eat Naturally, Eat Well
Some people love to browse through old bookstores. I love fresh food markets and have visited hundreds of them from Rome to Sâo Paulo and in my current home of Greenwich, CT. Eating seasonal products fresh from the farms is – in my opinion – the foundation of all great cooking. During a 2015 visit to Italy, I rediscovered the unique taste fragoline di Nemi (a delicious small strawberry) in the Campo di Fiori, market, the incredible fish and fresh vegetables in the Rialto Market in Venice and the best cherries I have ever eaten in a market near Greve in Tuscany.
Fresh produce is at the heart of the Mediterranean diet, although I was never consciously aware that I was forcing myself to eat “healthy.” Fresh vegetables and fruits in season and raised organically simply taste better. I continue to seek out food products raised organically by farmers, because it is the way I have been brought up as a nutritionist and the way I feed my family.
With so much emphasis on processed foods in the United States, it is a challenge to find healthy natural foods. In fact, many so-called “healthy” or “organic” foods are hardly healthy or truly organic. As such, my husband and I decided to seek out great natural products that we believe are essential to any home cook. If the produce is fresh, these natural products can enhance the flavor of most any dish.
Search our online store for extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, truffles and so much more.
