Lettuce Get Inspired | National Salad Month

Salad Blog Main

We may typically take the easy route and make what my mother-in-law likes to call the “honeymoon salad” because it’s lettuce alone (get it, let us alone). This month let’s stretch ourselves just a little to make more delicious and nutritious salads that challenge the traditional idea of a salad and that may even leave out the lettuce altogether–see ya later lettuce, have a good honeymoon.

Practicing plant-based living can feel great, while promoting health and well-being. Whether you are a vegetarian, meat-eater, pescatarian, flexitarian or vegan, eating more veggie food is a delicious way to do your part for the environment too.

Food Memories from our Farm Family

Food Memories

Food holds a special place in all of our hearts. It connects us to our community and it bridges generations. The taste, smell and texture of food can be powerful, evoking emotion and eliciting memories. With one bite you can find yourself transported back into your childhood kitchen or your grandparent's garden. Our food memories are made stronger by the fact that all five of your senses are utilized when eating, so you may even find that you can smell your great-aunt's perfume or hear your grandfather's radio playing in the background. Food is embedded in our relationships with loved ones. In honor of Mother's Day, we asked Farm Fresh To You employees to share some of their favorite food memories and the foods that make them nostalgic. We hope you enjoy their stories and we hope they spark some sentimental memories in you as well!
