Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast! This morning’s smoothie is made with the farm’s fresh spinach and sunflower shoots plus frozen strawberries and blueberries from last season. The sunflower shoots add a nice nutty flavor. Add some almond milk, plain Greek yogurt and Triple Omega Seed Mix from Oak Street Natural Market. Yum! Nutritious & wholesome. We are bringing lots of our spinach blend and sunflower shoots to Webb City Farmers Market tomorrow. Fresh berry season is just around the corner!

Farm Fresh Feasts

Kirsten Madaus, worm wrangler, wife, mother, Community Supported Agriculture-loving pizza paparazzi at Farm Fresh Feasts, has spent the last 6 years feeding her family from farm shares in 2 states. She realized that one of the barriers to folks continuing with a farm share was a lack of knowledge about new-to-us produce. She started her site in 2012 to provide practical support to her my fellow local eaters.

She shares several recipes each week featuring seasonal ingredients, and maintains a Visual Recipe Index by Ingredient (broken up into different types of produce). She receives submissions from fellow food bloggers to bolster her own recipes so that, for example, she got more than 50 recipes using beets, nearly 50 recipes using garlic scapes, and more than a dozen recipes for kohlrabi. There are recipes for all types of diets.

Her website is free to use, but she does display ads which is how she pays for the site and the software to host the recipe index.
