If you try to follow a healthy lifestyle, perhaps you’ve heard that the best way to stay on track is sticking to seasonal foods. And that’s not too far from the truth. You are still going to find these foods on the market, but the fact that now it’s not their season ultimately means that they are less palatable and nutritious.
Having said that, there is a way to enjoy your favorite summer meals even on cold winter days…

It’s a budget-friendly solution and at the same delicious option you probably have seen both your parents and grandparents do for years. Even if you haven’t witnessed the entire process yourself, this shouldn’t discourage you by any means…

On September 15, 1944, the US First Marine Division landed on a small island in the Central Pacific called Peleliu as a prelude to the liberation of the Philippines. Among the first wave of Marines that hit the beach that day was twenty-two-year-old George Peto.
Growing up on an Ohio farm, George always preferred being outdoors and exploring. This made school a challenge, but his hunting, fishing, and trapping skills helped put food on his family’s table. As a poor teenager living in a rough area, he got into regular brawls, and he found holding down a job hard because of his wanderlust. After working out west with the CCC, he decided that joining the Marines offered him the opportunity for adventure, plus three square meals a day—so he and his brother joined the Corps in 1941, just a few months before Pearl Harbor.
