We've harvested all sorts of goodness from our garden over the past month. Spinach, lettuce, mixed greens, herbs, radishes, beets, green onions, celery, carrots and strawberries have all made their way into our family dinners all month long. The recent hot weather has made our spinach bolt to seed very quickly, so I guess we will wait for the swiss chard to get a bit bigger. We have also been getting a farm basket from our local organic farm every week too. (that will be another post later this month)

We've also been making good use of all the grains we bought from Top of the Hill Farm earlier this summer. Below is a Cheddar and Whole Wheat bread that was so incredibly good. I've become a bit obsessed with finding the best whole grain recipes I can find.  We haven't bought a loaf of bread in nearly 6 weeks, and I think that the kids don't even miss it. In the past week, we ate 4 meals that consisted of ALL local fresh ingredients.
Our family attended the Food Label workshop at Vita Health this month too. Lots of great information was provided.  I've also found a great website called Fooducate, that has so much information about everything in industrialized/processed foods.
