We've blogged about how much we appreciate the More-with-Less cookbooks, a staple of our crunchy granola childhood and a newly rediscovered favorite. We appreciate that their approach comes from more than a sense of trends; the commitment to eating more with less comes from the authors' own sense of spirituality and living it out day to day.
More-with-Less, with its emphasis on African and Asian cooking and whole grains in other ethnic contexts, was also our earliest introduction to food outside of the stereotypical American food groups.
Lately we have been turning again to More-with-Less, but this time it's on the web, and it's helping us to eat seasonally.
Simply in Season is a web resource companion to some of the More-with-Less printed materials. It has a long list of fruits and vegetables and some key points on when they are in season, and how to use them.
They follow the garden seasons common through most of North America, and we've found this a very helpful introductory resource as we try to eat more seasonally and locally.
They also have a weekly recipe that highlights a seasonal vegetable.
