Weekly Newsletter

Serving Berkshire County Since 2008
We realize most people do not have enough time to read our newsletter each week and if you do, you're likely scanning it quickly. That's because most of us are so busy at home and at work, with schedules colliding and a 'go-go-go' mentality that we can't devote the time we want to reading everything we receive in our inbox.  We thank you for even reading this opening paragraph.  

We have been trying to make our newsletter better and easier to peruse. Each week it is our goal to offer more sale items and specials to help inspire you to spend some creative time in your kitchen. This week we're bringing back our grocery sale items section to highlight some of the products that lower prices.  

We also understand the commitment you are making by ordering a produce basket so we hope you enjoy some of the new recipes we're including that feature some of the wonderful produce items you'll be receiving.  We understand it's a challenge to eat well and take good care of you and your family.  While ordering a produce basket helps support our local farms and a small, local business, you also deserve a pat on the back for bringing fresh, organic produce into your home!  We can't thank you enough for continuing to make our produce baskets a part of your grocery planning.

How to Moisturize & Keep Your Skin Soft 
A couple weeks ago I mentioned a new book by Deepak Chopra & Kimberly Snyder called Radical Beauty. There are so many great tips in this book it's hard not to share them. Besides starting my morning routine with warm lemon water and following that with a immunity boosting elixir and nourishing smoothie, I started the practice of abhyanga. As stated in Radical Beauty, "abhyanga is an ancient form of self-massage that is a powerful anti-aging practice...that will make you feel rejuvenated, soften your skin and contribute to better overall skin tone while also fostering muscle tone."  

I had already been doing dry brushing as a part of my routine before hopping in the shower and usually applied coconut oil to my skin after exiting the shower but still found my skin to be dry at times. Abhyanga was the missing component I needed. Read more about Abhyanga here

Featured Recipe
Easy Veggie Pad Thai 
We have enjoyed this pad thai dish for dinner the last few weeks. This version is meat and egg free (you can easily add both) but honestly I don't miss either one and as a result it's easier digest. This dish is loaded with vegetables and spices which make it a nutritional powerhouse of a meal. You can use whatever vegetables you need to move out of your refrigerator (we list our favorites below). All the ingredients are available on our website. The ingredients that are underlined are featured on sale on our website. Prep and cook time is less than 30 minutes. We hope you enjoy!  

Ingredients for sauce:
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1/3 cup veggie broth (or water)
1-2 teaspoons red chili flakes (optional)
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce  

Everything else:
1 stalk lemongrass, flattened and finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion
5-6 cups assorted veggies chopped (cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, baby bok choy, mushrooms)  

Optional Toppings:
Lime juice from Kaffir Limes (suggested)
Peanuts, crushed

In a bowl, whisk together ingredients for sauce, tasting and adding more of anything you may want. Set aside.  

In a large skillet or wok, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onion and carrots and cook until onion is fragrant and translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in choice the rest of the veggies and lemongrass and cook for three more minutes. Next, add in sauce and reduce temperature to low. Cover and let cook until veggies are tender, 6-8 minutes.  

Cook noodles according to package while veggies are cooking. Add drained noodles to the veggie mixture.  Serve with toppings.

Spooner's Florida Ruby Grapefruit have finally arrived! They may not look perfect on the outside but wait until you cut one open and taste it. If you don't enjoy fresh grapefruit, this recipe is sure to please.

A quick sauté of Brussels sprouts and kale keeps the veggies bright and fresh. This recipe uses baby kale but regular kale torn into pieces also works well. And don’t skip the capers—frying them in olive oil makes them deliciously crisp, and adds a briny flavor to the final dish.
