Here is What we are eating this week

Loquat
Head Lettuce
Wild arugula
Summer Squash
Long Beans
Lemons
Yams
Baby Bok Choy
Chard

I like a lot about long beans. As a grower, I appreciate that they are easy to harvest as they are grown on a fence or trellis so you are able to simply stand and drop them in a basket as you pull them from the vine. They are durable and they last long. As an eater, I love that they have no string, they are easy to cook and due to the fact that they are about a foot long, It only takes a few beans to make a quick individual side dish.

If you want some beans with your eggs and a dollup of yogurt for breakfast, saute beans, garlic and tomato in coconut oil. Add curry powder, a squeeze of lemon. If you want to get even richer and decadent, add a few tbsp of coconut milk and basil. Slice a grapefruit and sit down for the best breakfast. You can do the same recipe with chard instead of beans. I experience a unique blend of pride, gratitude grace and joy when my first meal of the day is something this simple yet special. Not a lot of people get to eat like we do. So I try an make it special whenever I can.
