I hope your weekend has started off nicely. Mine certainly has. This morning was weigh in and I now currently weigh 220.7. That is a 5.1 pound loss! A far cry from what I expected after my weekend in Vegas. Is there a better way to start out a day? I think not.
Matthew and I cleaned the apartment and then headed out to pick up our "Bountiful Basket."
Bountiful Baskets is a co-op in our area (Includes AZ, ID, NV, TX, UT, WA, and WY) that allows us to buy produce directly from the farmers so it is WAY cheaper than the stuff you get in the store. Only issue is, you can't chose what you get. You buy a basket and you get whatever is available.
This week's basket looked like this:
For $15.00 we received:
1 package of Blackberries
1 bag of Grapes
3 Red Peppers
4 Beef Steak Tomatoes
1 Head of Romain Lettuce
6 Russet Potatoes
8 Ears of Corn
and 14 heads of Baby Bok Choy
That, my friends is a steal and the produce is very high quality. I'd have a hard time finding this quality at a store. I'm so excited that I found this program for a few reasons. It will force us to work more fruits and vegetables into our diet and it will make me be more creative with the things I cook. Any ideas for what to do with Baby Bok Choy?
I hope you all are having an excellent weekend!
