I think next time I will read the guidance,before I start cooking.
In my defence, I only made soup with the left over tomatoes from making chutney. I very rarely eat tomatoes normally.
High in grains, home grown vegetables and herbs... sounds like a good start. I know..... read before you cook.... still, appreciate the good parts and learn from the not-so-good.
"If you don't know what to do, do nothing. If you don't know what to eat, eat nothing." My favorite quote. If only I can get this in writing.
To be fair, the discussion that preceded the quote was about not settling because you don't like your choices. You should find a good choice for you.
