Crisp salad, shrimp, and pasta. All three of my faves to taste during the Summer months.
Summer is just about to be here. Here in the Harris family, we are so excited. From new travels to trying new things is always something I have enjoyed especially, being married into my husbands family. One thing I have been trying to do is eat more healthy no matter where we are. Vacation, dining out or even here at home.
A has become obsessed with salad for the last six months. Incorporating many dishes that include lettuce is something we try and do at least a few times a week. What kid do you know who asks for salad? Growing up that was never the case. Now that I’ve been on a health kick since the New Year making sure myself and my family eat more natural based products is a goal and important to me.
All The Things You Can Do With Salad
Eating more healthy means finding the comfort in finding better things you like to eat. I never want to feel like changing my lifestyle means eating things I don’t like. This never ends up good so I’ve adjusted to cutting the smaller things out until eventually they are all gone. For example bread and potatoes. I’ve adjusted to where I may only eat them while I’m out. Since my family is big on lettuce at this time providing them with a crisp delicious brand is essential.
Eating More Locally With Little Leaf Farms
Little Leaf Farms is based out of Devens, Ma and they only ship to retailers they can deliver to within 24 hours. They want to ensure their lettuce will be crisp and tasty for all their consumers. They deliver to New England and parts of New York. Plus their lettuce ends up lasting longer since you receive it from a local company. They also have a high-tech sustainable greenhouse and they’ve opened up another one this month.
When shopping for Little Leaf Farms some retailers in the North East have to request it. Since they are locally grown only certain retailers provide them.
