As I mentioned in this week's Sunday weigh-in post, I went out on a mission this morning to try to convince my friendly fruit-and-veg man at the Sunday market down the road to agree to make me up a weekly fruit & veg box. I offered him €10 and asked him to just throw together a few bits and pieces and to surprise me.
Well, he agreed so I'm actually quite excited to know that next week, he'll have another box ready and waiting for us. I hate throwing food away so I know this will inspire me to get more fruit and veg into our diet.
The kids excitedly helped me unpack and we discovered : strawberries, leeks, tomatoes, an orange, a pear, a yellow plum, a minneola, a courgette, a red pepper, a green pepper, a a yellow pepper, a white cabbage, some endives (chicory), an apple, some broccoli and a couple of satsumas. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary - in fact they're things that often find their way into our shopping trolley - but I still love the surprise of not knowing what will be in the box !
Little things please little minds, huh?!
