I cannot even tell you how exciting it is that my thesis is on vegetables, and that I’m doing it with friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you know me you know I’ll talk for hours — even more about topics I love! So when my masters thesis is a group project with people I love and about healthy eating, oh it’s a real party! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So incredibly lucky to have my amazing team @samanthalangereis , @karenatwohig and Matt (whatever his IG is) around to make our veggie dreams come true. And, as always, the amazing @tvpresspass who’s my support in everything I do and puts up with me on a daily basis. What more could I want? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #eatlocal #foodie #foodgram #instafood #instagood #markets #localmarkets #seasonalfood #theartofslowliving #eatmoremagic #eatyourveggies #honestcaptions #organic #local #imperfectproduce #imperfectionisbeauty #uglyproduceisbeautiful

$5 at the farmer's market! Wow. Since #PlasticFreeJuly began, I'm buying way more produce. The Haymarket farmer's market is an amazing - and surprisingly affordable - place for this. Honestly, though, some of Haymarket's produce isn't the "flawless" kind you'll find in big grocery stores.That's because grocery stores have strict standards to sell "flawless" produce & reject everything else, even if the "flaws" are as minor as imperfect color or shape. This feeds into the wild 30-40% of food that goes wasted in the US every year. So I'm learning to embrace "ugly" produce: A tiny bruise on a lemon can be cut off and composted. A scarred orange peel can reveal a perfect orange inside. And freckly bananas make the best banana bread. #zerowaste #plasticfree #consciousliving #sustainability #sustainableliving #plantbased #SayNoToPlastic #trashfree #foodwaste #uglyproduceisbeautiful #reduce #lowwaste #freshfood #farmersmarket #ecofriendly #greenliving #sundaymorning #JustEatIt #foodforall #toogoodtogo #foodrescue #fightfoodwaste #zerowasteboston #haymarket #boston

We are so lucky to hang with the best local farmers every weekend and score GOLD level produce like this organic cucumber from @slackhollowfarm in Argyle, NY. It’s really important to us to buy as much local/organic produce as we can for a few reasons. 1) It tastes better. 2) It IS better. Organic practices and responsible farming have been proven to yield higher quality produce meaning more vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. 3) We believe in supporting local farms. Over the next couple weeks we will be exclusively sourcing our cucumbers, beets, carrots, mint, basil, apples (and whatever else we can find!) from our fellow @troymarket and @spacityfarmersmarket vendors. If you’re not eating, drinking, juicing,and loving yourself some local summer produce - get to one of our markets and stock up. #localvore #troymarket #spacityfarmersmarket #eatwhatsinseason #juicelife #uglyproduceisbeautiful #realfoodlifestyle #eatlocalgrown #votewithyourdollar

Creative Mango Cuts! 📸and styling by Sarah Phillips @food Mango pulp was skinned and some eaten. The rest was puréed with lemon juice, and portioned into small, individual containers for the freezer, leaving enough room for frozen water expansion at the top. They’ll keep for 3 months or more. Thaw in the fridge. Great for making smoothies later on!🌻 #uglyproduceisbeautiful #uglyproduce #heresmyfood #sarahphillipsfoodart #wastenotwantnot #mango #mangocuts #heresmyfood #storage #foodpatterns #foodart #foodpatterns #perfectlyripe #blooooms #edibleflowers #ediblepetals #gatheringslikethese #mangoes #champagnemango

Is it the mother of all beer collaborations when the brewery collabs with @momsorganicmarket ? Add @environmentalworkinggroup & @foodpolicyaction to the mash, and yeah, probably! @atlasbrewworks & Head Brewer @dvil521 partnered with these groups to brew a kettle soured American ale called Ugly & Stoned made with recaptured ugly fruit from @momsorganicmarket , ugly meaning “not meeting consumer aesthetics.” Aromatic, tart, & ugly fruity, the beer quenches thirsts and reminds minds about the epidemic of food waste. In the U.S. 40% of our food supply is thrown away. Ugly & Stoned (like stone fruit ;) is helping to reduce that unnervingly high percentage.📸 @kitchenbyalexa #StarChefs #zerowaste

Have you ever heard of Golden Torch Cactus Fruit? These round fruits are about the size of golf balls and have a spikey surface. When fully ripe, the fruits split, revealing a white inner flesh with tiny black seeds. @specialtyproduce @specialtyproduceapp

Climate friendly and delicious 😋 #reducetarian #Repost @lessmeatlessheat ・・・ Check out these gorgeous, chunky artichokes. A tasty, low- carbon alternative to meat 🌱💕🙌 Repost @climatenexus ・・・ Happy #MeatlessMonday , everyone! Did you know that if you swap your steak for fish, you can get an eight-fold reduction in your carbon emissions? And if you switch that to beans or lentils, your emissions drop to near zero! If a lot of us start making similar changes, we can potentially help fight climate change. - Reposting @uglyproduceisbeautiful | Photo by Sarah Phillips . . . #uglyproduceisbeautiful #artichokes #lessmeatlessheat #climatediet #climatechange #globalwarming #instafood

Have you had a Yellow Watermelon? Yellow watermelons can vary greatly in size, shape and color depending upon variety. Whether round or oblong, they usually exhibit the standard bright green outer rind striped with darker green markings. The flesh can range from pale yellow to deep gold and may contain large brownish black seeds or be completely seedless. While their succulent and crisp texture is comparable to other standard red watermelons, their flavor is usually much sweeter offering notes of honey and apricot.

I feel a baby kicking and zooming all over while I make caprese salad with these warm tomatoes the Farmer just brought in. Next up, pumpkin cookies (last Fall’s French heirloom variety 🤤) with maple whipped cream. Skipping my nap (🤣 yes I nap these days) to chop in quiet while a summer storm rolls in is totally restful.

Yesterdays quick breakie before a 15km hike! I needed some serious fuel because 15km aint no joke (i died) and couldnt think of a more fueling meal then oats with oat milk and some fruit. Also just loved getting the chance to pick my own fruit on Saturday and i couldn't wait to use the fruit in my oatmeal! What satisfaction! Just be careful because yes even though oats are healthy does not mean it doesn't have a shit ton of calories, its easy to go overboard! Like i always stay im still learning portion control 🙈

100% homegrown 🙆 I usually roast our root vegetables because it mellows their flavors and brings out a sweetness that our kids prefer. I had stored a lot of the beets, turnips, and Daikon radishes a couple weeks ago when the high temperatures started to show up because I knew we'd soon lose a lot of these to the heat. . And... here's a little secret: these are mostly seconds of our crops. It's true! I give the first of the firsts to our CSA members, and then the next round of firsts goes to market. We eat the seconds, and they are DELICIOUS 😋 Veggies that are a little mishapen, too undersized, or bruised during harvest are still VERY, very good. I'm betting other growers out there do the same thing - yes? (We do eat a little of our firsts from time to time... sometimes, it's just too hard to resist!)

A simple beets shot for @ethosgreekbistro as I sit here and watch the Croatian-Russian game at a bar in Estonia. I’ve completely fallen in love with Estonia. It’s familiar and comfortable and it feels so good to not be able to communicate with people. (Though that’s rare tbh.) having an amazing time wandering through cobblestone streets, eating all the things (tonight I tried fish ice cream on a stick!) This is a town I could hang in for a while. Check out my stories for the live updates if you’re so inclined - there is fish ice cream on a stick there...

I’m calling this one a Warm Spanish salad. Red onions, cherry tomatoes, olives, capers, smoked paprika and shrimp sautéed in olive oil with a last minute squeeze of lemon- instant warm salad dressing. Piled on top of lettuces and herbs (basil and oregano + oregano flowers). Why Spanish? It reminds me of something I had in Spain, all I need now is a view of Mediterranean and the scent of salty air. Not asking for too much, right?!? #onmytable #onthetable #epicurious #lifeandthyme #imsomartha #inmykitchen #inthekitchen #heresmyfood #huffpostgram #hautecuisines #huffposttaste #bonappetit #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #food #foodporn #forkyeah #feedfeed #foodgawker #foodandwine #f52grams #thekitchn #thefeedfeed #tastingtable #top_food_of_instagram #uglyproduceisbeautiful #munchies #menwithcuisines #shrimp #salad

Grilled chicken salad with mulberries and yoghurt dressing. Disclosure: I’m not a “salad” person, so my salads need to be not just salad. In this one there was obviously chicken (marinated and grilled), but also thinly diced fennel, red onions, cucumber and lots of herbs - mint, basil and cilantro - which made every bite taste different and exciting. Mulberries came from my sister-in-law’s garden and were sweet and juicy. My kind of salad. #onmytable #onthetable #epicurious #lifeandthyme #imsomartha #inmykitchen #inthekitchen #heresmyfood #huffpostgram #hautecuisines #huffposttaste #bonappetit #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #thekitchn #thefeedfeed #tastingtable #top_food_of_instagram #food #foodporn #forkyeah #feedfeed #foodgawker #foodandwine #f52grams #uglyproduceisbeautiful #munchies #menwithcuisines
