April was a busy month! I’m excited to get back into routine, which includes my Sunday farmers market trips. And the month of May could not be more enticing…there are tons of new fruit and veggie crops that will brighten market aisles, as well as my dinner plates.
Here’s this months list of what’s in season!
Amazing list! Enjoy filling your fridge this month!!!!
Mixing rain and sun during SF’s magic hour = An ethereal glow, and yeah, some killer rainbows. Local Chills, from my neighborhood and my roof.
Did I go overboard at the farmers market today??
And had this incredible farmers market salad for lunch to prove it.
Ingredients (all organic):
So many labels. How do we make the best purchasing choices at the grocery store when there are 10 different options to choose from?
Love this easy guide for buying the best eggs by Takepart.com; lists what to avoid, what to look for, and where to shop!
Instead, look for Pasture Raised chickens. ”A label used increasingly by smaller, sustainable chicken farms to indicate that they legitimately raise their birds outside, on an actual pasture.

Where can you find Pasture Raised eggs?
I absolutely loved this meal. Such a refreshing and light take on a traditional baked salmon dishes, and uses such fresh and beneficial whole ingredients. Best of all - yeah, it might look like a gourmet dish, but takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Cucumber Mint Wild Salmon
Not like I have to sell this anymore, but the dish is 100% gluten-free, VERY low dairy intake due to the Greek yogurt variety, no sugar, low salt, and about a bajillion health benefits on your plate.
You’re are saving the world one grocery shopping trip at a time sporting your reusable bags…but you also could be spreading bacteria and food-borne illnesses!
Read the article and, yes! Toss your bags in the wash this week!
Word, Meryl. Word.
Found this Meryl Streep quote painted on a door in True Foods, a trendy restaurant in Santa Monica, California. Dr. Andrew Weil, who started True Foods, promotes a healthy, anti-inflammatory, whole foods diet. Their menu is to die for, and I love what they stand for.
Multiple True Foods locations also in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Newport Beach, San Diego and Denver.
