Happy New Year!

 

We love that Bountiful Baskets saves people lots of money, and that’s certainly a large part of our mission! AND… the value extends way beyond that. Are serious about making changes in how you eat? Take a look at these things:

 

Variety and Selection – We all have our favorites, but science shows that changing it up and getting a full complement of fruits and veggies really helps our health. There are different phytonutrients in each fruit and vegetable and they are each beneficial in their own way! We get local whenever we can, and that reduces our carbon footprint and gets you seasonal produce at its peak.

 

Timeline and Accessibility – Commitment to eat a basket a week, or one every other week, keeps you on track! It provides incentive to eating whole foods and reducing other not-so-nutritious snacks. If you want to see how much better you can feel, eliminate added sugar and processed foods in favor of fruits and vegetables!

 

Community and Accountability – Get involved at your site! The friendships and fun will keep you coming back and eating healthy. Having a social aspect to your changes will really help them stick! It’s nice to be part of a group is passionate about produce and can suggest recipes and fun ways to eat the variety you get!

Italian Pack

 

Add extra produce to your basket! A variety of veggies to stretch your basket and round out your Italian-themed dishes! Think eggplant parm, big pan of roasted Italian veggies, smooth or chunky sauce. Or be a rebel and go French with delicious and easy ratatouille!

Hoping for Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Garlic, Blood Oranges, Romanesco, Yellow Squash, Kale, Tomatoes, and Red Onions.

Lunchbox 
Pack

 

Have kids packing lunches or like having extra “finger food”? This pack is for you! Fill those tummies with something delicious and nutritious if you want those brains to fill up with reading, writing and arithmetic. We all think better with a full tummy and without artificial refined ingredients. So many kids “problem” classroom behaviors iron out when they start eating a clean diet.

Hoping for Tangerines, Snow Peas, Bananas, Baby Carrots, Persian Cucumbers, Granny Smith Apples, and Navel Oranges.

Salad Pack

 

One of our all-time favorite packs! We serve a salad nearly every night – its such an easy way to get veggie goodness! We love raw ingredients, of course. We also love adding fruits or roasted veggies, chopped or slivered nuts, homemade dressings with herbs, vinegar or lemon juice, and a healthy oil. We also love to pack lunchtime lettuce wraps with lettuce and ingredients of all types!

Hoping for Green Leaf and Romaine Lettuce, Radicchio, Tangerines, Red Onions, Dried Cranberries, and Almonds.

Fresh Basil

Approx 1 Lb

 

Fresh basil means homemade pesto in this house!

Combine with the tomato  add-on for caprese salad or homemade tomato sauce.

This is a much-used pesto recipe here. We omit the cheese for our dairy-free family members, and our dairy eaters prefer pecorino to parm to top pesto.

Broccoli

Approx 14 bunches

 

Perfect for finger-food snacks in lunchboxes! Great to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy. I soak in salt water, cut into consistent size, then rinse well. Blanche, plunge immediately into ice water to cool, and freeze in freezer bags. If you have an electric pressure cooker, prep the same way, put in steamer basket, add 1 cup water, and set on high/manual for 0 (zero!) minutes and carefully manually release immediately. Perfect, hands-free steamed broccoli!

Cara Cara Oranges
Approx 40 Lbs

 

Cara Cara Oranges are the perfect kid snack! Juicy, very sweet, low acid, and usually seedless, these are perfect served in wedges on a plate or in your beverage.

Large Roma Tomatoes

Approx 25 Lbs

Salsa, Tomato Sauce, Diced Tomatoes, Roasted Tomatoes, they all start with Romas! These tomatoes will be the basis for so many amazing meals for your family.

Tomato sauce is so easy! If you want a place to start, this is a very nice sauce recipe:

Organic Maple Syrup

Approx Half Gallon
