Nice Melons!

…Thanks, they’re local.



Just picked up a mini watermelon from my local produce market. Upon arriving home, I found this sticker on it:


Melon Up! allows you to enter your fruit’s assigned serial number, and see where exactly your snack was grown, thereby being able to gauge how far it traveled to get to you.

And according to this map taken directly from the website, these services are available in a number of locations across the United States, Mexico, and Central America! Hooray!

Thank you, Melon Up! for making eating local even more feasible.

Enjoy your weekend!

“Mmm… Noodle Souup.”

I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but sadly I cannot. So perfectly satisfied the random “spicy, mexican-themed, yet light” craving I was having. Thank you, The Perfect Pantry!

Mmm… #honey #jalapeño #flanksteak. Delish.

Few things excite me more than a well-stocked, #organized #fridge. Happy 2013 to me! #food #yum

Week-prepping. #Smoothie made with frozen and fresh #bananas, frozen #blueberries, #soy milk, and #oats! Nothin’ too fancy, but dang tasty. Can’t wait for #breakfast!
