Beet Pizza
In case you missed it, here is our plan for the new year! Each month, we have selected two ingredients that we will highlight and focus on. For the entire year, we have mapped out one vegetable and one fruit that will be repeated in all of our dishes for each month. Each of these foods are seasonal and are chosen for the month based on their prevalence in stores and farmers markets and for their seasonality. This is a strategy that is awesome for many reasons. First, it makes sure that healthy nutrients are emphasized in our meals. Second, it is a quick way to make meal planning easy. Lastly, highlighting foods all month long will cut down on food costs, have less food waste and will use fewer grocery bags.  Below, we have further explained and mapped out our goals so that you can follow along with each of them.

Beet Pizza

This year, our blog will stand for:

  1. Healthy Food – We want to celebrate fresh, whole ingredients and show our readers how accessible and good for you each of our selected fruits and vegetables really are.
  2. Quick and Easy Meals – This is something we always strive for but will be highlighting this even more this year. We want to make family friendly and delicious meals that take little effort and little time. In order to achieve this, our recipes will have simple steps and helpful shortcuts.
  3. Using the Same Ingredients in Different Ways – This is our favorite, money saving shortcut! When we repeat the same ingredients throughout the week, we have less food waste, we have fewer grocery bags to make many meals, and of course, we save some major money! Showing you different meals we can make with repeat ingredients in one week, is our very favorite shortcut!
