Replacing the Grocery Store Challenge - Part 1
I am joining in the challenge over at Our Simple Farm. It's a great way to focus your attention on filling your pantry with healthy foods you have grown yourself and eliminate foods from the store.
Today, I am supposed to list those fruits and vegetables my family consumes and those we wish to consume. It sounds easy enough, right?
Fruits we consume:
Vegetables we consume:
green and red peppers
corn for popping
Now, most of these we eat on a regular basis, depending on what's in the house at the time. We don't have anything stored up from a garden because we just moved in last summer. However, the plan is to store up as much as possible so we don't have to rely on a store's produce section.
I have italicized those foods which I use less often than others. These are items I want to use more of. Of course, it will depend on the kids learning to like them. In addition to these I wish to grown my own herbs as well as sunflowers for seeds.
I also have underlined those foods which are used as a starch rather than a vegetable.
What about you? What veggies or fruits are used most in your family? What veggie is the hardest to get your family to eat even though you like it?
