Fresh Produce

I haven't done any of my Fabulous Food Fridays for AGES! And I LOVE those! I love researching foods and seeing what nutrients they are loaded with. It's the inner-wanna-be-dietician in me I guess. So I am resolving to get back with the program.

Today I am going to highlight fresh produce in general. I have been taking advantage of an awesome Co-Op in my area and I am LOVING it!! A few weeks ago I got ALL THIS for $15!! Apples, bananas, tangerines,mangoes... AND lettuce, broccoli, squash, celery, tomatoes, artichokes...Crazy huh?!! This past week I got THIS: bananas, carrots, blackberries, pineapple, apples, oranges, tomatoes, red potatoes, onions, squash, spinach, swish chard, lettuce, celery, cilantro, tomatillos, limes, jalapenos, avocados, garlic and a TON of tortillas. This was more but I got so much more! I love having fresh fruit and veggies on hand. I love that it's available for my kids to snack on and I let them eat as much as they want, pretty much as often as they want; within reason, we all know how too much of a good thing isn't so much of a good thing!

It's a GREAT habit to be in, this eating lots of fruits and vegetables. I am of the opinion that you really can't over-eat when it comes to fresh produce {maybe if you're dipping them all in dips or dressings every time}. I am grateful that I have always loved these things; ever since I was very young I have preferred vegetables and fruits and I continue to crave them daily.

So here's to a fresh new start for our Fabulous Food Friday!! See you next week!
