Produce Rescue

IMG_1596.jpg

When I discovered my passion for nutrition, I was in a low place. I had run out of options for the endless pain I was having in my chest. It wasn’t until after the correct diagnosis of Pectus Excavatum and the corrective surgery that followed that really opened my eyes to a whole different perspective on wellness; nourishment from a holistic perspective. Up until then, I had felt so alone in this journey, just like the produce that aesthetically doesn’t line up to the standards of markets, so it goes to waste. With the help of Hungry Harvest, this produce can be delivered to your home, waiting for you to enjoy!

Using produce that would have otherwise been discarded, I was able to make this creamy butternut squash + beet soup, with a side spinach salad topped with fresh mandarin slices, the perfect fall spread!

Butternut squash + beet soup:

-1 butternut squash, roasted

-1 beet, roasted

-1 cup coconut milk

-1/2 cup hot water

-garlic, sea salt, and pepper to taste

Maple Salmon

IMG_9756.jpg

Up until about 5 years ago I didn't want anything to do with seafood. Crazy, right? Once I started to like it and eat it more regularly I couldn't help but think about all the delicious meals I had given up (not to mention the omega-3s I missed out on). My first time trying salmon was when some friends of mine lived in Alaska and made me some that they caught themselves. Let me tell you-- when I say that I became a salmon snob after my first experience having it, I'm not lying. Luckily, my sister came up with this mouthwateringly delicious recipe. 

++ingredients 

wild caught salmon (happy fish, healthy fish)

garlic powder 

chili seasoning 

pure maple syrup

fresh lemon 

Coat the salmon with the garlic + chili seasoning; place in the oven on broil for 15-20 minutes 

Once fish is cooked throughout, brush with pure maples syrup until it caramelizes 

Serve with fresh lemon juice squeezed on top
