Basket Day!!!!

One of my favorite resources for healthy motivation is Bountiful Baskets.  If you are not sure what this is then you are definitely missing out!  It’s a food co-op that allows you to get a variety of fruits and vegetables for a super reasonable price.  Along with a regular basket there are also add-ons that you can opt for like cases of fruits and vegetables, breads, wraps, themed packages (like Asian, Mexican, Italian and herbs) and much more.  One of my favorite parts of participating is that you never know what you are going to get!  It’s a culinary surprise every week you participate and will sometimes open you to product that you have never tried or even though of trying.  Since it is a co-op you are requested to volunteer on occasion but even this is a great opportunity to give back, meet people and sometimes exchange ideas for how to use your basket items.  If you are interested in trying out this great program visit bountifulbaskets.org and see if it is available in your area.

Today’s basket was exceptional!  The basket itself had pineapples, peaches, cantaloupes, tomatoes, lettuce, celery, mushrooms, cauliflower, a cucumber, green beans and yellow squash.  In addition to the normal basket I also got an add-on of a case of Utah Peaches.

I’m especially excited about this basket and add-on because the peaches prompted me to buy a food dehydrator so that I can dehydrate some of them.  I also plan on trying the cantaloupe and pineapple this way but that will be something for a different post 🙂
