Weekly Meal Plan

Once again we were overwhelmed with our CSA (community supported agriculture share) bounty. Thankfully, we found a couple willing to split our share with us, so our abundance will not go to waste.

But even splitting the share, we still have host of vegetables to eat! Eating so many greens (many of which need to be cooked), made getting enough raw or fermented foods into our diet a challenge. I think that if we portion things well, just over half our calories should come from raw or fermented foods. Guess we’ll see!

Monday
B: Green Smoothies (why smoothies?)
L: Kohlrabi & apple slaw, egg salad, glass of kombucha
D: Curried turnip & lentil soup, bok choy in a sesame garlic sauce, glass of raw milk (why raw milk?)

    Motherhen68 — I expect that to be the case throughout the summer. I love salad greens, but the never ending supply of collard greens, turnip greens, bok choy, kale, and beets is starting to get at me. Those are all best eaten cooked, and we really do want 60% or more of our diet to be raw and/or fermented. It’s hard for us to eat so many cooked vegetables in a day.

    Well, I still can’t wait to be overwhelmed with greens in our CSA share… we won’t start getting it for a few more weeks since we are in a cooler place. I first learned about green smoothies as a result of last spring’s bounty and don’t know any other way you could eat tougher raw greens like collards.
