Just Another Meatless Monday!


So thanks to Beth from Stroller Strides and a few other Mama’s, I FINALLY did Bountiful Baskets! I am in produce HEAVEN!!!!

We got apples, oranges, strawberries, and pineapples for fruit. For veggies several tomatoes (making sauce), turnips, kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, a butternut squash,green onion, & red bell peppers. I may have left something out! All organic!!!!!!

A lot of people do it once every 2 weeks, but I may do it once per week, since we are Vegetarian! We already ate one pineapple, 3 oranges, kale 2 of the 3 peppers, etc.

Tonight we had 2 red bell peppers stuffed with Org. brown rice, Org. onion, Org. kale, asiago, and some Quorn meatless meat.  SO good.

  1. Unfortunately the Flagstaff location for Bountiful Baskets is only offered every 2 weeks. I’m glad you like the produce… I’ve been doing it since last summer and it is a huge money saver… our grocery bill is substantially reduced. Did you try the bread? We really like the 9 grain – 5 loaves for $10 and NO hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, etc.

    • I had heard it was once ever 2 weeks, but I heard a rumor (you know Flag), that it might have changed/be changing soon. Wishful thinking??? The bread isn’t organic, is it? Safeway O bread is good no garbage, and the bread is smaller, so portion control is built in! And my daughter wastes less if she can’t finish a sandwich!

  2. No, the bread is not organic. It is small like the Safeway O bread, though, which I love too. It freezes very well too.

    I talked with the organizer of the Flagstaff BB, and she said starting in May/June there will be another location in Flagstaff. I’m so excited… traveling to Cromer is the only part of BB I don’t like, as I am coming from the Ponderosa Trails area. She didn’t know where the second location would be, but said it will be at one of the schools. It *has* to be closer to me, no matter where it is, so I am excited.

    • Maybe that was the rumor I heard just passed through so many people it got distorted! I am your neighbor, I live in PT, too. I know the drive to Cromer takes a while from here, I was just happy the hubby was home so I was able to go sans active “spirited” toddler, who judging by the dirty looks I got in Target today, isn’t good in lines! I wonder if in addition to the new location, there will be a weekly p/u… we’ll see. Keep us posted!
