The Fresh Box

October 12th, 2012


Every Friday I get to pick up an amazing box of farm fresh veggies from a great little store in Westfield, NJ called Alan’s Orchard.  Alan’s Orchard sells local sustainably farmed and certified organic produce, responsibly raised free-range poultry and grass-fed beef, local artisanal cheeses and other dairy products, breads, sauces, jams, frozen yogurt with Jersey fresh toppings, and other locally sourced products.  The box is part of a 32 week Fresh Box program  Alan’s Orchard Fresh Box ™  run by Alan.  Each week Alan goes around to different local farms to see what’s fresh and packs the boxes with a variety of healthy locally sourced goodies.  The Fresh Box always inspires me to cook interesting, nutritious and delicious meals.  This year I joined the Fresh Box team as the “Box Nutritionist”.  Every week I provide a nutritional tip on one of the featured items as well as a healthy recipe to go along with the tip.  I look forward to sharing all of my delicious Fresh Box recipes with all of you!
