Test Your Clean Food Vocabulary
“We always make sure to spatchcock our capons on the plancha while we make salmagundi on the side.” Don’t you?
This is the opening from last week’s Huffington Post article “50 Words Every Food Lover Should Know.” I failed miserably, identifying fewer than 25% of the terms! Evidently, “burgoo” is not a verb, a jerobaum is not an appropriate substitute for my green smoothies, and I should definitely be calling my family to the table for Fläskpannkaka every time I make pancakes!
In effort to redeem myself, I decided not to study these terms and gain from the knowledge, but rather simply to make a new list! A list that proves that we love not only clean food, but sustainable good health for ourselves and our environment. So, for all of you clean food lovers out there, here’s a list you might be able to relate to even more! How does your clean food knowledge stack up?
Arrowroot, Agar, Alkaline, Amaranth, Arame, Antioxidant
Cacao, Clean (of course), CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), Compost, Chew
Farro, Free radicals, Farm, Farmer
Gomasio, Groats, Gluten, Garbanzo, Genetically engineered
Kombu, Kimchi, Kudzu, Kale
Millet, Miso, Mirin, Mochi
Raw, Rainbow (of color)
Seasonal, Sprouting, Slow
Tatsoi, Teff, Tamari, Tahini, Tempeh
Wasabi, Wakame, Whole
Y (one extra for indulgence & necessity!)
Don’t forget that this is week two of my Giving Thanks Giveway!
