Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Veggies Change Lives
Did we ever tell you the story about your co-worker who was feeling a little down and shrieked each time she saw her grocery bill? Well, your co-worker became a Field Goods subscriber and everything changed...Our diet study with the Sage Colleges Nutrition Department (link on our website) confirmed what you already know: FG improves your diet and saves you money. On average, FG subscribers eliminate at least one trip to the grocery store a month (so at least one headache), and are happier with their diet ESPECIALLY if they have kids. This week is a kid-friendly bag, so get them in the kitchen to learn how to pack a delicious, nutritious lunch. We're here to help!

  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.


 
Frozen Edamame The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love 'em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the edamame (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc. Markristo Farm (CO)
Storage: Toss in the freezer.
