Local CSA, Fresh Produce
As gardens start to grow here in Eastern Ontario, Canada, I’m excited to see what my share of a local CSA will bring me.
Hopefully, my summertime recipes will inspire you to use your fresh vegetables and fruits in a variety of ways. Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated but it’s nice to try new meals to keep things interesting.
Baking is a passion of mine, but I know that fresh produce is so much better for me. My body usually tells me when it needs more plant-based goodness or if I need to get off my butt and go exercise! Follow me on Instagram for daily inspiration.
