Hi all,I just finished the healthy cooking challenge. I enjoy cooking and baking very much. I also enjoy using whole foods and there are fewer and fewer processed foods in my kitchen. I when I found this team, I thought that this will be a great place to be. I'm looking forward to learning new things here and sharing some of my whole foods ideas and failures with all of you. Yup, we can learn from our failures and pass on wisdom to others that way.
Welcome. I ate my favorite collard greens - my husband's recipe last night.
Start a large pot of salted water to boil Fry 1/8 pound of bacon While the bacon drains, cook a large diced yellow onion and half to whole head of chopped garlic in the bacon grease Add a tablespoon of crushed red pepper to the onion/ garlic mixture Cut the stems out of three large bunches of collard greens (and save the stems to make vegetable broth) and boil the greens for 7 minutes at a full rolling boil Drain off the hot water and replace with cold water, and scoop out the collards in handfuls and SQUEEZE them into dry little clumps. Chop the clumps into 1/4" slices and toss in the skillet with the onion and garlic and heat through Add 1 cup of broth and cook to reduce
This is spicy and magical and I would choose it over most desserts.

Saw this group and thought it would be a good way to swap ideas and recipes for whole and/or raw foods. I've been eating pretty good for a while now, mostly home-cooked, lots of fruits and veggies, some whole grains (brown rice, sprouted wheat, etc). Looking forward to new ideas and sharing some of mine.
