eating healthy around here


1. yummy breakfast: yogurt, granola, blueberries, strawberries and banana.
2. crab and avocado salad w/lettuce, tomato, croutons and homemade dressing.(there's anchovies in the dressing!!)

Its been two weeks since we have been getting fresh produce from the Whistling Train Farm here in Kent. Its a bit of a slow start, were getting mostly greens and herbs, but its making me be creative in the ways i make salads. Ive also added different leaves and herbs into pastas. Cant wait to start getting more substantial veggies like zucchini, peas, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots and such! :) I think zucchini and peas are just around the corner.

Viktor and I decided to sign up to support this CSA because we wanted to eat local, natural, and fresh produce instead of buying groceries at Safeway. Also its nice to support a local farmer instead of a big store. Its a little more expensive than buying produce at the store, but i think its worth it because its local and naturally grown. :)
