What’s On My Plate: Summer Fruits & Veggies

I received this product as part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media and Farm Fresh To You, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade  #farmfreshtotable http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

With two hectic schedules and one impatient toddler, we’re lucky if have dinner as a family more that a few times a week. When we do have dinner as a family, it’s usually delivery (thanks, DoorDash for keeping us fed!) or picked-up at the Whole Foods hot bar! This isn’t ideal, but look at the bright side: not cooking means more time with Harlowe. The not so bright side is that I’m not sure what’s in my food and chances are, it could be healthier. Luckily, Farm Fresh To You has helped me step up my fruits and vegetables game so I can make more meals at home.

Now that maternity leave has started, I’m at home waiting for my baby boy to arrive and there’s more time for creating healthy farm to table meals. With Farm Fresh to you, a carefully curated box of local and organic fruits and vegetables are delivered to our door. My grocery list is a lot shorter and my groceries are ten times easier to carry since I only have to pick up a handful of items to be served with my Farm Fresh box. The best part? You aren’t negotiating your health for the convenience!

Making use of my fruits and veggies quickly was easier than I imagined. Over the weekend, we hosted a few friends for brunch at our home. A medley of fresh fruit was the perfect addition to gluten-free blueberry pancakes. I just sliced the fruit into bite-sized and served it along side the main dish.

For some reason, being pregnant makes me crave milk like a baby cow. Having low-fat cottage cheese with my fruit has been one of my favorite summer treats.

OMG, there are no words for how much I love pesto. I’ll drizzle this savory sauce tastes good on gluten-free ravioli any day of the week, but decided to mix it up a bit last night by spooning it on to baked chicken with tomatoes and mozzarella. The tomatoes were so fresh, we ended up eating a few raw with a bit of salt sprinkled on top. If I’ve got your craving this now, make your own Skinny Chicken Pesto Bake with basil pesto using recipes even I can follow. Seriously, it’s so easy.

    First of all, I don’t think I knew you were having a boy!! SO exciting! Happy maternity leave to you 🙂 Yes, getting a healthy meal put together for dinner every night is a hard task when working full time. This is why we usually eat dinner so late at night! I love the idea of getting farm fresh food sent to the home. One of the most annoying things is after a full day of work realizing we need to go to the food store to pick up items for dinner. Thanks for sharing!
