Local Box 6/27/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

hey folks - so I totally missed an entire Local Box - i got the box, and ate the food - but no post. My laptop decided to take a week long sick break.

It's reached the height of summer heat - so pretty much from now till September it will be smoothies, salads, grilling and light meals

Here is this weeks delightful oontents:

Corn - my fave summer vegetable
Swiss  Chard
Malabar Spinach
Sweet Peppers
Sweet Onion

Ahhh Corn, just in time for July 4, gonna grill them up to have with our veggie dogs, watermelon and ice cream.

Tomatoes - in a salad no doubt, with the Spinach. or open faced on hummus and toast

Swiss Chard - honestly i can't picture doing anything other than throwing these and the Spinach in green smoothies

Sweet Peppers - i am imagining grilling these up and eating them on my veggie dog

Microgreens - salad

Cantaloupe - my son and i ADORE cantaloupe and have been eating it every day, i have added it to smoothies before but i think it will be all gone before i get to!

Beets - I love shredded beets and carrots in salad. Also love to add beets to smoothies for added nutrition oomph

Spearmint - maybe some iced mint green tea!

see you next week with the results

Local Box 5/30/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

oh joy - PEACHES! I read in the paper how our local peach crop has suffered this year due to the weather, late frosts and stuff, so i was soooo glad to have them in my box this week!

Here are the contents:

Yellow Beans
Swiss Chard
Garlic Chives
Sweet yellow onion

Peaches - smoothies, cereal, maybe grilled, it's time to get the grill going

Yellow Beans - Garlic Yellow Beans - delish looking

I'm craving pizza lately, I literally can't stop thinking about it. So I found these two recipes - one for Radicchio pizza with Truffle Oil from Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet - and another for Caramelized Onion and wilted Swiss Chard pizza

Beets & Carrots - I may roast and snack on,  and use in smoothies

here's a radicchio for your entertainment

Collards - i've already used them in smoothies
Grapefruit also!
Garlic Chives - these are the wild card, we shall see where they end up
