Sometimes the best thing to serve is not the thing you cook. Beth's sister calls it fixing something to eat versus cooking. In this episode of Eat Purely, Cook Fresh, a field trip to the local sustainable butcher yields yummies for a meat and cheese plate and you don't even have to cut them up if you don't want to. Just place on a cutting board artfully. The main tip is make sure your butcher is locally sourcing, non-gmo, antibiotic-free, grass fed, pasture raised meat and dairy. Beth's local butcher is Spotted Trotter in the East Lake neighborhood. Learn about all the things they provide as a full service butcher.

We are in the kitchen using dark greens to replace grits to make an old South Carolina Southern classic more primal. Use organic collard greens instead of grits and all of the sudden you can eat as much greens and shrimp as you like. Making healthy whole food choices in cooking is not only about nutrition and health but also about eating delicious tasty food. You won't miss the grits!
In Episode 7, we revisit Episode 2 - Organic Peaches from the past but this time there are a couple of twists. First we are going to use a Sun Oven to cook the peaches and secondly we are going to flavor our peach butter with a nod to a Southern classic pickled peaches. Of course we are going to use fresh ingredients instead of the canned cling peaches traditionally used for pickle peaches and of course delicious White Balsamic Vinegar from Strippaggio.
Episode 6 of Eat Purely Cook Fresh is home made Kale Chips. Of course it's a big craze but store bought brands are normally covered in all the bad stuff that regular chips are. So makers take something super healthy and make it not so much. However, making them at home in your dehydrator (or you can purchase one here www.discountjuicers.com) is simple and in the long run much more economical. Plus, you can control flavors and temperature. By dehydrating at a lower rate you can also protect the living enzymes which is very beneficial for the flora and fauna (my mangling of this conversation) in your gut. Note: You can do it in the oven but it heats up the whole kitchen and you don't get the same crispness.
Eat Purely Cook Fresh on a mission to make wholesome yummy food. This recipe was simple and was a great way to keep warm during the winter. Taking root vegetables from winter and roasting them can make a delicious warming creamy soup.
