Friday night I had my first (but certainly not my last) order of fresh produce delivered to my door from My Farmer's Market Inc. They're a new, local business offering produce, groceries, pet food and other household items available for delivery (FREE if you spend $50+) with a focus on sourcing their items locally. They even now carry Just the Goods products! It all came in a reusable tote that I paid a $10 refundable deposit for and they even threw in some free stuff like an extra cucumber, local butter lettuce and a dozen free range eggs! Needless to say, the service and quality from this first order has certainly got me wanting more and highly recommending them to YOU! Check out their website as their list of products they offer is continually growing and they're always looking for suggestions.
Plenty of my produce from my food order made it's way into several of my weekend meals including my Saturday morning's sunny breakfast bowl of goodness!
A smoothie base topped with a couple scoops of my homemade granola, cacao nibs, hemp hearts, banana and pomegranate.
Another tasty breakfast bowl on Sunday morning! I never tire of the vibrant color a beet and blueberries gives my smoothies! This smoothie had more goodies from my My Farmers' Market Inc order that was delivered Friday night. Local beets, celery, blueberries, cucumber, kale, Vega protein powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, apple, banana and filtered water. Then I topped it with some chia seeds, homemade granola, cacao nibs, Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts and fresh kiwi and pomegranate.

Let's see if I can remember what I put into this bin of crunchy yums. The wet ingredients were carrots, dates, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, cloves, banana and coconut oil blended until smooth.
So I mixed all the dry ingredients up and then poured on about 1/2 to 1 cup of the wet mix, mixing to make sure every bit is a bit wet. Then I spread it all onto a few dehydrator sheets and dehydrated it overnight at about 118 degrees until it was crisp and dry. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can bake it in the oven on a low temperature keeping a close eye on it so it doesn't burn.
This will keep indefinitely in a sealed container in the cupboard or fridge. It's such a versatile recipe so feel free to throw whatever you want into the mix!
