This summer, I have been trying to live a healthy, earth-friendly lifestyle. So I recently roller-bladed to the local farmers market. I was definitely the tallest person there!
I don’t always have the schedule to attend farmers market, nor do I prefer to exist on seasonal veggies alone. But I would like to suggest, as a hairstylist, that farmers market is like clarifying shampoo: sometimes you need to add something really fresh to your routine to cut out the previous junk you’ve been using.
I went to the farmers market looking for asparagus, which apparently is not in season. I left with the green beans and spinach! They were the crispest and freshest I’ve had in a long time!
I cooked chicken to go with the vegetables. I found a fabulous way to prepare veggies–it doesn’t take a grill but it gives lots of flavor and makes them crisp! I put them on a baking sheet, drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then pop them in the oven at 420 degrees for 20 minutes. Perfect!
The meal was a success. And it definitely filled me up! It also made great left-overs.
For dessert, we had vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries and a sprinkle of sugar.
