I feel like I have been lacking in the blog department lately, and for a while I had a good reason. Over the summer I found myself cooking very little (my husband will say never), eating things like crackers, and going to bed really early, even though I napped during the day. And then I found out, I'm having a baby! Yep, there is a locavore baby coming in March! Such exciting news, but in the beginning food was not my friend. There were so many foods that made my stomach turn and I just wasn't in the mood to cook, therefore, less blogging. Fortunately, I am well into the second trimester and my eating has been back to normal so I should be getting back into the blog.
So here we go:
I have recently discovered Bedford Blueberry Goat Farm at the Waltham Farmers Market, which ended last weekend :( In an effort to get some more protein, I started drinking their goat milk and it is delicious!! I have also tried there goat cheese and have been eating it regularly. I am bummed about the end of the farmers market season, but I hope with the baby coming in March, the winter will fly by and markets will be opening again before you know it! Bedford Blueberry Goat Farm will be at the Wayland Winter Farmers Market bi weekly and at the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market the weeks they are not at Wayland. Both are good winter markets, so I plan on being there.
And so, here is what I've been eating lately. I am still trying to keep a healthy diet and need to make sure I am eating lots of protein and iron, hence, this spinach salad.
1-1 1/2 cups spinach
2 slices of bacon from your favorite farm, crumbled
1 tbsp diced onion
1 tbsp sliced black olives
Sprinkle of goat cheese from Bedford Blueberry Goat Farm, flavor of your choice
1 tbsp of your favorite salad dressing or olive oil and vinegar works too
Mix all together and enjoy a healthy, filling salad!!
We are so excited for this new adventure to begin!! I can't wait to take the baby to tons of farmers markets!!
