A Reunion of Sorts

This morning I had something I haven’t had in a long time….two whole weeks~


Oh how I have missed my oatmeal! 

I was CRAVING it this morning!  I microwaved together 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup water, a handful of organic blueberries, half a small organic mango…and afterwards I topped it with a spoonful of raw cacao nubs (perfect crunchy goodness) and a TBS of almond butter.

On the side I also had half an organic grapefruit from yesterday’s box:

DSCF2813These are so incredibly sweet…we never get enough in the box and four out of five of us fight over them!  I seriously have to ration out the grapefruits to make sure the grapefruit piggies in my house (I am NOT pointing fingers at my husband or daughter of course) don’t steal all of the grapefruits and everybody gets at least half of one!

In the predawn hours, in the midst of getting kids ready and off to school, I also chugged an Amazing Grass shake (1 cup almond milk, one scoop Amazing Grass Superfood, and a scoop of ground flax seed)DSCF2074Along with a shot of almost not photographed espresso!

DSCF2811 The Perfect Breakfast!

Speaking of produce…yesterday was produce day and oh did I get a glorious mix!


  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Mango
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Kiwi
  • Red Pears
  • English Peas
  • Mint
  • Rhubarb
  • Lettuce
  • Eggplant
  • Tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Leeks
  • Sweet Crunchy Minipeppers!!!  YAY!
  • Collards
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Zucchini

A really really really great share!!

Rhubarb is a new one for me…we don’t grow it in South Florida, and it isn’t prevalent in the grocery store, so I have not had it often!

Only when I have been to Canada!  I have to figure out what I will do with it…Not enough for a pie…..DSCF2804

I got a pound and a half of these English Peas:


Now as a kid my mom used to buy these all the time…and we would pop them open and eat the peas raw right out of the pod.  Sweet crunchy healthy snacking.  I always thought that is how you are supposed to eat these! 

But yesterday I kind of had an epiphany, because of the mint included in the box, they are really meant to be cooked. Like peas.

I called my mom and told her about it, and she said she never liked cooked peas so she just ate them raw.  Now, while I DO love cooked peas I am not wasting these…guess what I will be snacking on today!

Hey, It's Kelly from the blog meetup :) Your produce box looks delicious! I have been meaning to email you because I looked up the buying club the day after we met and I filled out the request for info form and have since emailed them twice. I made it very clear I was interested in joining but no one ever emailed or called me back about it. That kind of brought me down on the whole thing but I figured I should give them one more chance? Any ideas why I'm not getting a response?
