Check out this little gem I discovered around the corner from our apartment the other day… I know, I know!!!
As someone who ad libs a lot of her recipes and is always looking for creative ways to combine veggies with comfort food, my heart fluttered when I spotted a little produce store just a few blocks from our new digs. I made my first trip there the other day to grab a cucumber – a necessary ingredient for a last minute falafel dinner topped with homemade Tzatziki. After a good fifteen minutes of perusing the fruits, veggies, cheeses and chocolate bars, I managed to escape with just a cucumber + one jar of organic, chocolate hazelnut spread… Yes, RDs get early-morning chocolate cravings occasionally too.
Our little produce store seemed to have just about every fruit or vegetable one could ever want – a fair bit of it organic. They even had a mound of butternut squash (!!!) – something I haven’t been able to find fresh in any grocery store for over six weeks now. I can definitely see myself becoming a regular here – can’t wait to check out the Saturday farmer’s market just down the street, next!
Fruit & veggie shopping – grocery store, produce store, farmer’s market?
Early morning chocolate cravings – Nutella crepe, chocolate chip pancakes or a mocha latte?
