Paleo Food Farmer's Market Haul
Kale, collards, little gem lettuce, celery, orange and red sweet peppers, padron peppers, plums, pears, yellow onion, carrots, purple carrots, broccoli, purple cauliflower, summer squash, eggs from pastured chickens, bacon, and fresh chevre.
This photo was my official entry into the "Grocery Time" contest over at Mark's Daily Apple. Our assignment was to submit a photo of ourselves that included our smiling (and pepper-eating in my case) faces along with a week's worth of our Primal groceries. The contest was inspired by a Time photo mantage featuring families from around the world surrounded by a week’s worth of their groceries.
Here is the photo that represented the United States. I wish I could say that they did us proud, but unfortunately it truly is SAD (what an appropriate acronym for the Standard American Diet).
My two sons were the photographers for the photo shoot. As I sat behind all that fresh food, I couldn't help but snap an iPhone photo of one of them, as he sat looking cute as could be.
We also had a little fun with finding funny shapes and faces on our padron peppers. Here's a shot of Old Man Pepper.
While I had all this delicious food on the table, I was inspired to make a quick video to share in more detail the kinds of things
that were in my kitchen that day. Almost all of the produce was from a local farmer's market, and the rest was from a local natural foods grocery store.
Here's a complete list of the haul:
From the farmer's market: kale, collards, little gem lettuce, celery, orange and red sweet peppers, padron peppers, plums, pears, yellow onion, carrots, purple carrots, broccoli, purple cauliflower, summer squash, eggs from pastured chickens, bacon, and fresh chevre (goat cheese).
From the grocery store: frozen and fresh raspberries, young Thai coconut, basil, garnet yams, Greek yogurt, pancetta, grass-fed beef, Italian pork sausage, roma tomatoes, limes, fresh dates, spaghetti squash, canned pumpkin, coconut oil, canned coconut milk, and canned diced tomatoes.
So what's your favorite thing on my table?!
