What's in my Box?

This week I've got more greens. kale and mustard greens, I think. I'll try the "unknown" in my smoothie tomorrow. 

Turnips, carrots, mushrooms, baby garlic and parsley- sounds like a weekend for soup!

Whats in My Box?

In my produce box this week:
Sugarloaf Borca Chicory - Good Food Easy
German Butterball Potatoes - Juniper Jungle Farm
Collards - Organic Redneck
Carrots, Brussles Sprouts, - Cinco Estrellas
Empire Apple - Columbia Gorge Organics
Green D'Anjou Pear - Mt. Hood Organics

Look at these gorgeous potatoes I got this week.  I've never heard of German butterball before. They were very good.

I'm not loving collard greens too much but the chicory was okay. 

Do you like collard greens? How do you like to eat them?

When to Eat Organic

I've been trying to eat more and more organic. We have two large groceries stores with horrible selection, so I do the best I can do with my weekly produce box and shopping when I'm out of town. Here is a great list of the dirty dozen- lots of spray and pesticides on these foods. let's avoid it when we can, for your health and mine.

If you are like me I eat a LOT of these foods, so think about how all that bad stuff adds up!

Eat well, be healthy!

Winter Hiking

Our winter has been very mild so I thought with company coming we'd hit the trails for a winter hike.
I didn't realize the day  would be cloudy with a bit of snow falling in the mountains. 

We investigated an old mining town.
Jumped a creek.
Had a lovely view, despite the clouds.

Made it to the summit, (It was actually a false summit and we didn't continue) We were right at 6000' elevation!

I really like summer hiking instead of winter hiking.  I hope you are getting out when you can despite the weather!

I'm going to be riding my bike more, but even though it has been very mild, it isn't quite warm enough to ride outdoors yet.  I've always admired this wonderful building top in Portland. It is a lot longer, I just couldn't capture it.

How are you moving more this winter?

I'm Movin' Mountains!

Once again I've joined the community slimdown challenge. I don't plan on winning money, but I love the accountability. I did well last year and plan on having a great 2015!

Fresh North Carolina Air

I'm still taking it easy on my ankle but HAD to get out for a run while on Buck mountain, North Carolina. It is so fun to see other areas on foot.

And the views were pretty amazing as well!

What's in my Box this week?

This weeks produce!

Smoothies, salad and pot roast veggies.
I'm leaving for a week so am doing my best to eat up the fresh produce since hubby would rather cook up a steak or frozen pizza while I'm gone and not mess with fresh veggies.

Here's one of the farms that we are getting produce from:
