If eating healthy is one of your goals going shopping for healthful whole foods is a must. Going to a farmer’s market is usually a much better bet then your local supermarket. You will find better produce, more local and organic produce and it will be cheaper. If you don’t go shopping for the healthful whole foods you want/should be eating you can be sure you won’t be eating them this week. So make eating healthy stock your kitchen full of fresh goodness on a weekly basis. Here is what I picked up this week.
I always buy lots of bananas for my daily green smoothies. If ever I don’t use them before they get too ripe I just peel them, cut them in half and freeze them in a ziploc bag.
You know I love my greens. Swiss Chard is a great green to start making green smoothies with because it’s not too bitter and blends easily.
Very important to always have lemons on hand. They are a great source of electrolytes for those of you exercising a lot and they are also a great detoxifier. I use them in smoothies, squeeze them on steamed vegetables etc.
These peppers are organically grown in greenhouses in Quebec. I was very happy to find them and speak with the person selling them. Useful for so many delicious meals.
You never want to run out of these 2 staples. The base for so many healthy dishes, with garlic of course.
I am thinking of making a North African style vegetable stew. The dish begins with frying these devils in some oil. I can’t wait.
Is it broccoli? Is it cauliflower? It’s romanescu and it is amazing. A vegetable originally from italy that is similar to cauliflower but better. It has a delicious nutty flavor. If you ever see it buy it. Trust me.
I am addicted to guacamole so I couldn’t leave the market without these 2. Not only does guacamole taste amazing it is extremely healthy. Just be careful what you eat it with. Whole-wheat pita bread is a good option.
So easy and so good. Just wash them, cut them up, and steam them. Try squeezing some lemon juice over them, with a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt and pepper.
Now that I have my shopping done I am prepared to eat healthy for the week. Eating simple whole foods like the ones I bought today is the easiest and most delicious way to be healthy. Go visit your market and enjoy!
