Organic ThanksGiving To-Go

realfooddaily Organic ThanksGiving To Go

Hunting down a gazillion different organic ingredients at the market and slaving away in a hot kitchen all day might be some people’s idea of a great time, and all part of the familiar ritual of the big holiday dinner – but for most of us, we’d rather just enjoy our food and the company of our family without the fuss. Quite frankly, the idea of spending the entire day in the kitchen whipping up 10 different recipes bores me. If you don’t even trust yourself with a kitchen knife, or you’re just a lazy cook like me, the best idea is to order your meal from a local organic restaurant. That is if you are lucky enough to live near one. If you are in L.A. or NYC, you are indeed in luck. If you have a Whole Foods Market near you, you can also order an organic holiday meal from their catering menu.
