For my first post on this new blog I cannot think of anything better than to talk about where all my meals start: FRESH PRODUCE!
We usually eat a lot of home cooked meals and I always try to make sure that I feed my family with care and love. This means looking up ways to incorporate the most veggies I can in our daily meals. I want everyone getting their share of vitamins and essential nutrients for the day!
A typical week starts with my Monday morning farmers market trip. I am lucky enough to know a great place that has amazing produce, some of them organic, at a great price. They always have fresh options because they get them delivered everyday.
I focus on the seasonal items and I try to stock up on them if they are at a very low price. For instance, I've been buying extra berries which I then wash and freeze as soon as I get home. We love them on smoothies, oatmeal or in parfaits with Greek yogurt and nuts!
This also applies to vegetables. Today I bought cauliflowers - they were 2 for $3 which is an awesome deal! I'm roasting one of them this week and ill make some cauliflower rice out of the other one and freeze it to use next week.
My kids are now 6 and 8 years old and they have always eaten their daily dose of freshness. Nothing better than to start early in age: they always ate the same as us, parents, and they enjoy it! Cheers to them!
Three days ago I bought everything on the picture above and today I already had to stock up again! I usually choose one of the proteins I have at hand and then I pair it with the veggies that I got and that suit the dish the most.
There is never a boring meal at our house!
This was my shopping trip from this week!
Will you care to share yours with me?
