The Cook’s Staples for Macro Friday
My friend belongs to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program in which she picks up a basket of vegetables and fruit monthly throughout the winter months. Her family has sensitivities to many foods. One of them is onions so when onions are included in the basket I get them. The newest basket had lovely red salad onions and garlic, staples in our house. I thought they looked so good I took a photo of them.
A Community Supported Agriculture program is one that uses organic and sustainable farming practices. Members can purchase a winter or summer package that can be picked up weekly, biweekly or monthly and can contain fruits and vegetables, free range eggs or organic meat and poultry. My friend said that this month’s basket included a fruit pie baked at the farm with the farm berries. If you are interested in knowing more about this program here is the link to just one of the many out there. Check your area for them. Eating healthy these days is of great importance for our health and the maintenance of the environment. The Coopers CSA farm can be found HERE
