Veggie Stocked


I recently had a chat with someone who I think is very intuitive and sharp.  During our conversation she said something that really struck me, "people (crossfit athletes and everyone else) can't live with out their protien source (in particular eggs) but they can live with out veggies." It wasn't meant to be mean and I certianly didn't take it that way. It is factual...for many people...especially those my age.  It was one of those moments where you think to yourself two things: damn that's sad and what can I do inspire change! {side note: if you are one of those fantastic people who eat your veggies daily...I love you! Hugs!} 

In my case I work a lot of hours and feel fortunate if I eat two meals a day which I know is horrible. I just hate leaving the field when I'm on a roll.  Lately when I have been eating it's a quick scambled egg and usually fresh potoates - if i'm feeling crazy some bacon. How can I expect you busy people to eat your veggies when I'm not! Shame on me!

And you know what...it doesn't take any longer to whip up some veggies than it does to cook an egg.  In fact you can slice and dice while that little egg is frying.  So I am making the commitment to you to eat my veggies....everyday....for the next 30 days.  I make no claims that these dishes will be fancy but they'll be fresh, nutricious, and I know I'll be a better person for it. 

In my case I am not only veggie stocked - I'm super stocked! So that's what I'm calling my little project: Veggie Stocked.

This is inspired by 3 things: my recent chat mentioned above, health and feeling 100%, and my customers: some of the things you guys cook truely inspire me and I am so thankful to know such great, supportive people. 

Every day on facebook I will post a picture and a short description of what I prepared.

Like Robson's Farm on Facebook so you can follow along.  

So let's start with Day 1:

Diced heirloom cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, onion, olive oil and vinegar, with a touch of salt and pepper.  Eaten with a plain burger patty and a beer.
