Pick Your Own – Strawberries

 

Strawberries are officially here in Bucks County, PA.  I spent my morning picking these sweet jems at None Such Farms — they’ll be transforming into homemade jam tomorrow! 

Bucks County Taste put together a great post on local pick-your-owns.   Find the farm closest to you, and get picking before they’re gone!

Meatless Mondays

It’s no secret that diets high in vegetables and low in meat promote a healthy lifestyle.  Try starting your week out on a positive note by going meatless — It’s easy!  In place of chicken, beef, or pork, just look for protein from beans, legumes, eggs, nuts and seeds instead. 

Try some of these great ideas for a fast weeknight meal:

Veggie Pasta – Incorporate your favorite vegetables into marinara sauce and toss with whole wheat pasta.   I like red onion, zucchini, and cremini mushrooms.

Breakfast for Dinner –  Scramble eggs with vegetables and serve with fresh fruit and muffins. 

Black Bean Quesadillas – Drain and rinse 1 can of black beans.  Fill whole wheat tortillas with black beans and cheese, and serve with fresh salsa or guacamole.
