Back In Action

Whew. What a busy summer! Do not worry – I did not forget about you! I’ve just been too busy to plan and shop and cook and write. And I think this blog is going to change direction a bit. Since meat and most dairy is now gone from my diet, most of my meals are coming from Vegetarian Times and other food blogs that I read rather than my cookbooks. Look for an update to my “about me” page soon to see where Neat and Nutritious is heading!

I finally went back to the farmer’s market this morning. There is SO much great produce available now. Good thing I had a list, or I would have walked away with way more than I needed!

I had company this morning, too! Patty just moved down here this week and was excited to check out the market. It was nice having someone to share that time – makes it more fun than just another errand on the list. Who wants to come with me next week? 🙂

Patty was also kind enough to show me how to use my camera! I had gotten this fancy new camera for Christmas (thanks, husband!) and had no idea how to use it. If you couldn’t tell from my awesome photography so far on this blog.

I think these shots are a little better. Still working on it. Might need some more lessons, Patty!

After the market, I braved the heat and went on a 3 mile run for my 10k training. It was HOT! Post-run fuel needed to be a green monster today for sure. So refreshing!

    I literally bought my body weight in spinach this weekend and am looking forward to making one of your green monsters!
