Local Box 1/23/14 - Vegan Greenling Meals

first of Kudos to Greenling and the deliver drivers from being out in the terrible freezing wet weather bringing us all our delicious boxes of goodness! Super Sweet!

Ok here's the goods:

Mesclun Salad Mix
Meyer Lemons
Watermelon Radish
Rainbow Carrots

So last week, you know i was in Marshall for the New Year New You festival, and one quote from one of my heroes,  Dr Michael Gregor, stuck out and stuck with me. It was that for breast cancer survivors, eating at least one cruciferous vegetable a day can greatly reduce the risk of recurrance.  I know i'm a healthy eater, but i don't conciously do of course it's on my mind now and I was so happy to see FOUR cruciferous veggies in this box - Spinach, Arugula, Cauliflower & Radish! Awesome.

Salad Mix - salads! with the Avocado, and may mix Arugula in there as well.  I can make a dressing using the Lemons.

Spinach - probably just saute or steam or add to a soup

Arugula, Dill, Avocado, Lemon - i found the perfect recipe in Nava Atlas' cookbook Wild About Greens - Very Green Avocado Tahini Dip!

Cauliflower - i'm torn - the box came with an amazing sounding recipe for Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Dill - it just uses more oil than i usually use.  I also found a Curry Cauliflower soup in Colleen Patrick-Goudreu's  Color Me Vegan cookbook.

Carrots - I may roast or just steam and eat. A few will now doubt get in a salad

Watermelon Radish - Salads most likely, or this Sweet Pickled Onion Watermelon Radish Salad but while im in a roasting mood i found this Roasted Watermelon Radish recipe
