Do you ever go through phases when you're not eating right and you don't even realize it until later? I've been bad about visiting my local sources for produce and I can't bring myself to buy produce that comes from South America when I know I can get it locally. The result was an overall blah feeling for the past several days and an intense craving for freshness.

Fortunately, today I got my tookus over to the farmers' market and stocked up. It helped that it's in the low 70s now; it feels like summer and it was so nice to walk around (I'm sorry to any readers outside of California reading this but our weather is freakin awesome). I bought:

  • 1 bottle of local olive oil
  • 12 apples (I'm making applesauce with most of them)
  • 4 kiwi fruit
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 yams
  • 1 box of blackberries (I was so surprised to find berries at this time of year!)
Now that's a start. I used the olive oil to make hummus that I put in a wrap for lunch:

My wrap consisted of: tortilla, fresh mozzarella slices, hummus, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, sun-dried tomatoes and lettuce. I served it with a side of the berries.


I was reminded today of how rewarding it is to make fresh, healthy meals. How do you stay healthy during the winter months?
