Week 5- Shallots

I was pleasantly surprised by the nice flavor of these onion like vegetables. I kinda took to the nickname Devil Onions because I had to peel several pounds at school and they can sometimes me more powerful than onions.



Our pretty simple smoothie recipe. I personally love tossing in a handful of spinach and making as thick as ice cream. 🙂

3/4 cup yogurt
1 banana
1/2 cup dry milk powder
1 cup frozen strawberries
other frozen fruit (peaches, pineapple etc) if desired

milk to thin if needed
Sugar or Stevia to taste


Mix all ingredients in blender.  Blend.  

Week 4 – Figs

I didn’t think I liked figs and so when they were brought to school for us to try, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a sweet flavor and a funny texture that I cannot really describe. The ones I bought were less sweet, but the flavor was still good.
