Old potatoes. Rumpled beets. Organic carrots. Roasted peppers in a pot. Packs and packs of miso. Those were a few of the things you could find on my fridge a week ago. The kind of things you keep forever, or almost. The kind of things you feel reassured to have, you know just in case. The kind of things you never get to the bottom of, or at least it feels like it.
Then we went on vacation, and I realized watching my parents cook delicious organic food coming straight from the local market that it doesn’t require a ton of vegetables to create a wonderful and tasteful meal. A couple of sprouts, a chosen wholegrain, one protein, a few delicate spices, some homemade dressing and you are good to go. We actually don’t need as much as I used to think to feel satiated, satisfied and full of energy.
