Bangin’ Black Beans

Let’s talk about plant proteins. A common misconception is that we only get protein from animals. But in fact, there are plenty of great plant-based sources of protein, including nuts, seeds, tofu, tempeh, and legumes (beans and peas).

End your summer right by making my husband’s “famous” potato salad. When we start to get freshly dug potatoes in our CSA toward the end of summer, my husband loves whipping this up.

One of the vegetables I have been introduced to is white salad turnips, also referred to as Japanese hakurei turnips. These are not like the turnips you are likely to find at your supermarket. These beautiful turnips are sweet and juicy! You can eat them.. Read More
