As you know, I'm obsessed with my Stillman Farm's CSA. Every week, I get local, in-season vegetables for every meal. I love knowing where my food is coming from and truly feel so much more nourished.
I really try to eat clean daily, which means I try to eat whole foods only and avoid processed foods or items that are made in a factory. I'm not going to lie - I partially do it for cosmetic/vanity reasons (they say abs are made in the kitchen for a reason!), but I also avoid processed foods because I feel so much better without them. My mind is clearer, my stomach doesn't hurt after every meal, I have more energy and my muscles recover quickly. Trust me - I definitely have cheat snacks and meals throughout the week but because I'm so specific about my diet for the most part, I don't feel guilty about an occasional pizza night or ice cream sundae.
I plan on doing a "what I eat in a day" post soon, but while we're in the midst of summer with so many yummy fresh produce, I thought I'd share my favorite summer vegetable recipes I create with my Stillman's CSA. I love gathering new recipes - share your favorite summer recipes in the comments!
