US tax dollars at work

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

I was just told about the The Food and Nutrition Information Center on the USDA's website fnic.nal.usda.gov/

Where you can look up Calories or Nutrients in Food, see dietary guidelines, use food trackers, consumer information, and more.

The dietary guidelines document is worth a read to reinforce the food pyramid and daily amounts required to be healthy.

CSA delivery this week: Bell Peppers

Thursday, July 26, 2012

It has been awhile but CSA weekly is back. This week our bounty included green bell peppers, garlic and parsley. So, are you thinking what I am.... Pesto!!!

and that is exactly what I made, vegan stuffed peppers with pesto.

and of course, if you don't care for bell peppers. This would work well using portobello mushrooms.

Stay Hungry My friends!
