Eating healthier from the farmer's market

After traveling TONS this summer, I finally have a break. Alex and I have agreed to eat more salads and whatnot now that we're both home. He was in LA for a few weeks.

I could use the extra energy from a healthier diet too. It's been a couple of days now and so far so good. I've been viewing it as a creative foodie challenge and bought a lot of things for my salads that i just LOVE, so it's not exactly a hardship since i love salads when they are really good ones.

Above is a photo of my loot from the farmer's market, and I'll end up with salads or veg-based meals with each of those ingredients above.

And the veg really does fill me up faster!


  1. Those vegies look awesome.....I have trouble with vegies/salad but I am trying to incorporate more into my diet...the selection I get in the desert is not that desirable... I am definitely leaning towards organic/whole foods for better body!

  2. Ah, yes, i do have to be careful. I put the carrots back as those wont go down unless cooked very well. But thankfully I've never had trouble with lettuce or softer things. Some of the rest I'll cook.
