We just had the most amazing week at Black Mountain Ranch in Colorado and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! But first, another Organic, Real Food on a budget tip. As soon as we got home, our CSA box was waiting for us. We got all the organic fruit and vegetables in the photo above for just $20! If you’re not familiar with a CSA, it’s Community Supported Agriculture. Groups of people get together to support nearby farms by agreeing to regularly purchase their produce.
Each week, I get a box of fresh, all organic produce for a fraction of what I’d pay at the store. My produce box also exposes me to vegetables I might not otherwise buy. My favorite way to prepare some of those mystery vegetables is roasting them. Roasting brings out the sweetness in the vegetables – a sure-fire way to get your family to eat them, too.
Think of my recipe as an outline. Use any combination of vegetables you like. And remember, it’s good to use a nice portion of butter when eating vegetables to ensure maximum assimilation of minerals and nutrients. I’ll be back soon with stories from the ranch!
