Photo cred Cat Ok what's in my fridge that desperately needs to be eaten? Leftover brown rice...ahhh, I'll make my special fried rice - The Goods style. All local/organic and crazy yummy and good for you. (don't like rice sub in some leftover quinoa instead) In a frying pan add: 1 tbsp of coconut oil 3 large cloves minced garlic 1 small onion finely chopped 4 carrots finely chopped Once all that is a bit soft (about 5 mins) add whatever you have in your fridge. Yesterday's version consisted of finely chopped, organic: Mushrooms, corn, chard, zucs, bok choy, red pepper & eggs Add some Himalayan sea salt and some organic tamari and you're GOODs to go. The joy about this dish, is you add whatever you want and in any quantity you want - just taste it and add more or less salt & tamari. Let me know if you come up with any rockin' combos.

photo cred Cat I don't know about you but I find garlic presses a b*tch to clean.  It almost negates the benefit of having your garlic minced in the first place. But it's kinda the price we pay for gorgeous fresh minced garlic. Now flash-back to a few months ago when I needed my garlic press only to find that the blasted thing had rusted. Garbage meet *&%$*% garlic press, garlic press meet garbage. Hope you live happily ever after. Now what do I do? So I grabbed my zester/rasp and rasped it instead.  That was my 'a-ha' moment. The rasp takes 2 secs, produces a beautiful ultra-fine consistency (like puree) and cleans up in a jiff. If you don't own a rasp, go and get one because quite honestly they're awesome.
