Local Box 9/19/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

This is a great box because it has almost all "ingredients" that i can add to what i'm already planning, or what i may throw together - i promise not to make mashed potatoes again though.

Meyer Lemon
Pea Shoots
Salad Mix
Asian Pears
Red Potatoes
Louisiana Green Shallots

Lemons - i love having a fridge full - i use them in salad dressings mostly, but may try this delicious looking Brussels Sprouts recipe from Fat Free Vegan, or this Lemony Quinoa with Butternut Squash

Pea Shoots - ohh look! With Avocados too - Avocado Beet Pea Shoot Salad

Red Potatoes & Rosemary & Green Shallots- my son wants to invent a potato soup with these

Avocado & Cilantro - I already made"fish" tacos made with Tempeh from Blissful Bites  and topped them with Avocado and Cilantro - but forgot a pic! doh

Local Box 9/6/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

Yikes, a new box is coming today and i haven't posted this box - i'm all outta whack

Ok here we go

Patty Pan Squash
New Mexico Peppers
Gold Potatoes
Butternut Squash
Popcorn on the cob
Jujube Fruits

Avocado - I used some here on a tofu scramble taco - with some amazing Mango salsa by the local Southern Heat & Pickled Spice - they make such good salsas with unique flavors

Patty Pan Squash - i love these, i dry sauteed some with some brussels sprouts, and drizzled with some lemon tahini dressing.

Microgreens  - so many nutrients packed in tiny leaves, love it - here they are topping a salad

I made mashed potatoes again - no photo

Butternut Squash - this time i made Macro "mac and cheeze" from Blissful Bites - vegan mac n cheeze with butternut squash.  super healthy, very delish AND you get a nice arm workout chopping the dang squash

Ok - hopefully I will writ another post tonight or tomorrow with the new box and get on track - happy eating!

Local Box 8/22/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

Cantaloupe two times in a row makes me happy - here's how i ate some of it for breakfast - with strawberries, so delicious coconut yogurt, and pecans.

The rest of the box had:

Acorn Squash
Hot Peppers
Asian Pears
Green Onion
Purple Viking Potatoes
Sweet Red Onion
Butternut Squash

well seeing as this was almost two weeks ago now and the next box comes this week, here is what i made!

Chard - went in smoothies

Hot Peppers - well when i first got them out i didn't notice it said hot peppers and i started chopping one up for a salad, good thing i popped a piece in my mouth - ouch! So i saved it and sauteed it up for a taco later in the week - here it is atop tofu chorizo from the Wellness Reboot menu

Green onion - salads, tacos

Spearmint - as usual, when i get mint i make Goddess Mind Dressing from Blissful Bites cookbook by Christy Morgan - i'm addicted

Purple Viking Potatoes - added these to the potatoes from the last box - and made mashers - we all were happy

Butternut Squash - luckily a butternut squash soup was on my Wellness Reboot plan that i'm doing - sooo good and easy

Asian Pears i've been snacking on all week!

i don't have plan yet for the acorn squashes, but they last a while, so i'm sure will pop up later

oh and an added bonus, i finally at the spaghetti squash from a box of yore - just a dash of ume vinegar and some nooch, perfect
