Make your own cauliflower grits by placing raw cauliflower into a food processor until it is the consistency you’d prefer. Then sauté with olive oil + seasoning. 

Seasonal ingredients have more nutrients + flavor: 

Native corn has phosphorus & niacin to support your body with critical functions. Eat corn when it is in season from a local farm that confirms they plant non-GMO corn. We can also mindfully thank cauliflower for giving your body vitamin C that supports the body’s muscles, bones + immune system. 

Carrots are amazing root vegetables with beta-carotene, vitamin A + C. Don’t forget to try all the different varieties.

Mussels are your B12 shot! They have readily absorbed source of B & C vitamins, amino acids & minerals like iron, phosphorus, potassium , selenium and zinc.
