I like new starts. I’m definitely one of those people who will wait for a new week, month or year to start something new. At the moment, 2016 holds so much potential. I am super excited about my theme word for the year and I’m just about at the place where I’m looking forward to going back to school tomorrow. Really, it’s just the waking up early part I’m not excited about.
I’m looking to get my eating a little more on track as the new year begins. I consumed an embarrassing amount of cookies during the month of December and I’d been cooking and eating whatever was easiest. Starting 2016 off with a CSA pick up was a good way to begin moving in a more positive direction.
The Pick Up
kale, spinach, beet, potatoes, delicata squash, daikon radish, lettuce, butternut squash, sweet potato
I’m trying a slightly different format for my meal plan today. It should be much, much friendly for smaller screens and mobile devices. I’ve also added my main lunch dishes for the week, because if I don’t then we probably won’t have very good lunches. Please let me know your thoughts on the new additions!
