Putting Some Color in My Meals

[Cross-posted from kayedacus.com]

In my effort to raise my interest in healthy foods, I’ve decided that for the rest of the summer (and into the fall, however long it lasts), I’m going to do as much of my food shopping at the large farmers’ market in downtown Nashville. Rather than fight the crowds on the weekends, though, I’ve chosen to go during the week when, yes, there are fewer displays/sellers there, but when I’m also not having to push and shove my way through crowds to get to the fruits and vegetables that have been poked and prodded and bruised by hundreds of others before me.

Here’s what I got . . .

Now, what I’m going to do with all of these, I’m not sure, but they should make very nice additions to the mains I already have planned for the rest of the week!

What’s the most fun/unusual fruit or veggie you’ve ever bought? What did you do with it?

    I’m not a huge fan of vegetables, but they look so pretty and colorful! The blackberries look scrumptious!
