simplicity blogs | theextraordinarysimplelife The world is desperate for, even envious of, people living purposeful lives that are free from fear. – Jeff Goins In a reflection about the past couple of years, I evaluated the heaping piles of reading material and bookmarked blog posts consumed on simplicity and minimalism. It’s quite impressive, really. When I am intrigued by something, somehow every orifice of the earth is excavated to hunt and gather books, movies, articles, websites and blogs that fill my internal subject file with wisdom. I’m stopping short of calling this simplicity quest an obsession, but lately as I scan my bookshelf, it feels it might be heading in the direction of “dog with a bone land”. I decided to ask myself why. Why do I feel compelled to read the thoughts of people who have successfully pursued a more simple lifestyle? The simple answer… I’m looking for courage. I’m mining the minimalist masses for inspiration and stories of change that mattered. Intention. What it comes down to is this: I can do hard things.

Kitchen 101: Fruits, Vegetables & Herbs | Chasing Delicious Kitchen 101: Fruits, Vegetables & Herbs I’d be remiss if I simply focused on imparting technical knowledge in the Kitchen 101 series here at Chasing Delicious. I’d be downright neglectful if I didn’t talk about ingredients, particularly the biggest misconception about produce today: that it is naturally available year-round. Though you may be able to find just about every type of fruit, vegetable, and herb in the grocery store every day of the year, a majority of this produce is not in season. Time spent in transit or storage is not the only inflated aspect of buying produce out of season. The biggest problem with buying out of season produce, and the focus of this article, is the lack of freshness and sacrifice in flavor and nutrients. My favorite part about abiding by an ingredient’s natural availability is what I like to call the Thanksgiving effect. That being said, there are many factors that effects a particular ingredients season. Take the time to read the sticker on the fruit.
