I’ve been meaning to share something with you for a couple of weeks now. I’m sure many of you have heard of Bountiful Baskets now, but David and I actually bought one the past two weeks. Bountiful Baskets is a food COOP where you order a basket on weeks when you want one, pay about $15 and then go pick it up on Saturday mornings at a location you chose when ordering. The baskets contain different types of produce each week, so you never really know what you are going to get, so there is some flexibility required. You receive a fruit and veggie basket. You can also order different types of bread available for the week (this week was sourdough), olive oil, granola or a type of trail mix. The quantities are very big for a very reasonable price. I think it’s awesome and if there is one in your area, you should sign up! It’s fun to see what you get in the baskets and it also expands your horizons a little bit when you get “new to you” produce.
The first week this is what we received: beets, artichokes, apples, bananas, pineapple, tomatoes, jicama, mangoes, lettuce, and strawberries. The second week, we received most of the same stuff except blackberries, avocados, and spinach were included in lieu of some of the other stuff.
The other day I completed a treadmill workout for only 25 minutes, but I was super sweaty afterwards and it got me in and out of the gym in a jiffy (did I just say that?). I adapted this workout from Julie, at PB Fingers.
The travel section of the blog is a new work in progress. I have the “Thailand” and “Malaysia” pages finished now, but I’m still working on quite a few more, so check back frequently. I also added some new workouts to the “Fitness” tab.
It’s officially finals week at school! I have two finals tonight after clinic, so wish me luck:)
