Bountiful Basket and Operation Don’t Let Anything Go to Waste

Posted on

I have decided to start getting the Bountiful Baskets again. Bountiful Baskets is a volunteer co-op organization providing a basket of 50% fruits and 50% veggies for $15 ($25 for organic)! I’m doing the conventional basket for right now and then I will move to the organic basket as soon as I know I will not be disappointed. So far so good. This weeks basket looks delicious! I cannot wait to prepare my meals this week! I’m also hoping that getting the baskets inspires me to continue to cook healthy at home and prepare for the week!

Here is what came in the basket this week:

BB1

Potatoes
Peaches
Green Peppers
Blueberries
Celery
Green Onions
Grapes
Lettuce
Plums
Honeydew Melon
Cabbage
Mangoes
