Local Box 7/8/13 - Vegan Greenling Mealplan

wow, when i go out of town and skip a week it feels like forevs till a new one comes. so exciting

here's the scoop

Cherry Tomatoes
Poona Kheera Cucumbers
Green Onion
Purple Potatoes
Spaghetti Squash
Popcorn on the cob

YES POPcorn on the cob - check them out! You just take off the husks, put them in a paper back, lay them in the microwave and pop-em. Groovy

So i am just finishing up week one of a 28 day plan - it's called the Wellness Reboot and it's designed my vegan Chef Christy Morgan - aka The Blissful Chef - i cook from her book Blissful Bites all the time.

It has a really fab menu, meal plan, recipes and workouts, super clean, healthy and delicious food - so all my meals right now are from that. I will do my best to adapt some recipes so as to use all my box food too. a fun adventure.

Cherry Tomatoes, Lettuce, Green Onion, and the Poona Kheera Cucumbers will all go in salads and also for snacks with dip or wraps.  In fact I made a wrap today with hummus and used the cucumbers in it, as well as sliced up some sticks of it for the side, you will see the cool color of this odd cucumber in the next post

Peaches and Cantaloupe will be my "sweet snacks" of the day if my son doesn't eat them first

Basil - Christy actually sometimes uses basil in smoothies, i tried, it, and it's GOOD! it can also probably be thrown into almost any recipe

Spaghetti Squash - I will probably just add this in as a vegetable side, so healthy and low cal and fat.

Purple Potatoes -these don't really seem adaptable to my meal plan but my kids LOVE purple mashed potatoes so there ya go.

see you next week
