Roasted Beets & Kohlrabi with Fennel

June 23rd, 2015

Beets are a staple veggie at the farm, making an appearance both at the beginning & end of the season each year. Like many root vegetables, beets have lots of vitamins & minerals — & should not be peeled in order to access the most nutrition. They’re also really easy to include in your snack & meals, as they taste great both raw & cooked. Click here to read Mikaela’s post all about beet nutrition & preparation ideas, including a recipe for Roasted Beets & Kohlrabi with Fennel.

Need breakfast FAST?

March 10th, 2015

quick breakfast greensA “trick” for making a healthy breakfast happen even on the busiest & earliest days lies in a little simple prep the night before for a portable meal.

Our go-to breakfast sandwich is a big helping of greens water sautéed with onion then mixed with a splash of balsamic & some nutritional yeast (optional). Add that to a whole grain sandwich thin, top with a fried egg & some hot sauce. Wrap it up in some foil & hit the road! You can also add a bit of cheese, if you prefer.

In addition to setting the coffee up to be brewed (first things first, now 😉 ), we chop up the onions & greens the night before to make the whole breakfast come together in about 5 minutes.
