Tim (Our CSA Delivery Guy) is so sweet. I asked if I could have something else instead of the dried cranberries, because they have sugar on them, he offered up many items he had in the delivery truck. We went for the Apple Cider, as Lee loves it so much. And then he said to take the cranberries as well, to give away or something. So nice!
I normally just post our CSA food, but I thought maybe you might be interested in seeing what we also get at our local market as well, as sometimes we pick up a few regular vegetables that we just love having that we don't get in our CSA box every week. Here's what we picked up today on our way home from The Vegetorium, our local farm market.
Truth: Life IS busy and unpredictable. And, yes, time is valuable. But what you eat can make or break it. So make it last. Make it count.
Cook. REALLY cook. Don't just tear open a package or crack open a jar. But cook - you know - mixing spices, simmering sauces, sautéing .. Yep, the real deal. It's really not that hard once you open your mind to it.
Read our story and try out some of our recipes. We really cooked these things (and ate them, too!). On weeknights. We even had time to do the dishes.
And yes, there is no refined sugar, soy, or dairy in any of these recipes. And often, they are vegan, gluten-free, or nut-free friendly.
A bit about me...
