Bountiful Basket  | Meal Prep

Have you ever heard of Bountiful Baskets?

Bountiful Baskets is a not-for-profit food co-op for fresh produce for less money. I was told about the local Bountiful Baskets by a coworker and thought I would try it! Here’s what I received this week :

– 3 baby bok choy – possibly eat in smoothie (never had it before)
– 4 large oranges
– 5 small apples
– 2 medium jimica – slice and eat raw
– 2 bunches of radishes – I don’t particularly care for raw, try roasting
– 4 bananas
– 3 cucumbers – slice and eat fresh
– 2 zucchini
– 4 heads of artisan lettuce – fresh salads!
– bag of potatoes
– 3 leeks – I have never cooked with leeks before…I will now!

I am not sure that I will participate EVERY week, but for the price and quality of the produce, I will surely think about it! With the delivery on Saturday afternoon, I would still have time to meal plan for the week after seeing what goodies I get week to week (since it changes every week!). I should have waited to go to the grocery store until AFTER getting my Bountiful Basket this week – I have a surplus of apples and oranges that need to be eaten this week!

It looks like I have some prep to do for this week!

– fresh salads

– potato leek soup – found inspiration on Pinterest

– fresh cut vegetables for snacks

– fresh fruit for snacks
