Aloha Oahu Fresh Members! I am so excited about this week’s bag…I can’t wait to get mine and I’m already looking forward to what I’m going to be making with it. This week’s bag will provide you with butternut squash, tomatoes, green long eggplant, mint, hydroponic lettuce, avocado, and pineapple. It’s late summer bounty, and it ‘s really speaking to me. I’ve been thinking about how to “clean up” my eating lately, specifically to cut out processed foods and extra sugar–and of course that means cooking with whole ingredients, just like what’s coming in the bag. This week’s recipes will reflect that and I hope you try a few of them and let me know what you think, or even better email us and provide your own. Happy local eating!
