Raw Mediterranean Squash & Greens Salad

June 26th, 2014

Raw Mediterranean Squash & Greens SaladAs the temperatures rise this season, many of us find it harder to crank up the stove top or oven to get meals onto the table. This is a natural time of year to crave cooler, fresher ingredients that require little-to-no cooking — and eating these raw foods do provide us with benefits: Eating our foods in a more raw form provides a different nutritional profile than eating a food cooked.  Read more about this nutrition and get the recipe for Mikaela’s Raw Mediterranean Squash & Greens Salad on the Blooming Glen Farm blog by clicking here.

Macerated Strawberry Salad

June 4th, 2014

CSA members were able to pick a quart of perfect strawberries at this season’s first share pickup… yum!  Most of us think about strawberries just as a nice, sweet treat — which they certainly are :) But, they also offer a nice nutritional profile, including the antioxidants vitamin C and manganese, dietary fiber for blood sugar maintenance to happy digestion, and phytonutrients that help prevent unwanted inflammation.  Strawberries are fantastic eaten fresh and raw, but we also love Mikaela’s simple Macerated Strawberry Salad:  Check it out on the Blooming Glen Farm blog by clicking here.
