Green Heart Menu for Sunday 10/16 Rillito Park Farmers Market 9 am - 1 pm


Dear Green Heart Friends,

With the weather now cooler, so many delicious dishes come to mind.  We are "parsing" them out, and bringing in some new ones.

This week I will have Blue Corn Mesquite Waffles, ready for you to reheat in your toaster.  We buy blue corn from New Mexico and mill it to blue corn meal.  Ted has found a guy who does all the work we used to do with mesquite pods:  collect, sort, grind (we had to follow the hammer mill all over Tucson), sift - and he packages it, and we are glad to support him by buying it from him.  The mesquite flour is an "accent" of flavor; the waffles are primarily made of our organic oat flour, and the blue corn meal.  There's also a bit of cinnamon, baking powder, and agave.  We like them with blueberries & maple syrup on top.

Nourish Bowl
You'll see the Nourish Bowl with Green Goddess Dressing on the side.  I know the photo shows an actual BOWL, but we are generally making our salads BIGGER now, and so expect to see it in the container that the Thai salad, and the Lasagna were in last week.  A lot of healthy, yummy components:  wild rice, lentils, quinoa, green beans, sauteed mushrooms, mandarins, atop a Napa cabbage slaw.  Ted makes the Green Goddess with lots of fresh basil and parsley in a cashew base.

And thank you for all the positive feedback on the Savory's on the menu again.

We will have a few containers (3 l'il cookies) of the so-called Little Debbie's Star Cookies.  If I have given you a sample of the first batch the past 2 weeks, you know that I got the recipe off social media, but that recipe had peanut butter in it.  We made them again, this time using a caramel sauce we'd made out of coconut milk, organic brown rice cereal & maple syrup.  Pretty tasty - and they might be good as a Rice Krispie Bar, but easier to eat this way.

In plant-based news (Forks Over Knives):


Hospital meals have long centered on less-than-healthy options. New York City Health + Hospitals, the largest municipal healthcare system in the nation, is working to change that. Earlier this year, they began serving plant-based meals as the default for inpatient lunches; now, they’re rolling out the same approach for dinner systemwide.

So, so long overdue...back in 2009, when I was hospitalized in California after my big horse crash, my friends had to bring a blender and The Ultimate Meal into my room, with almond milk, to make me smoothies because the hospital kitchen had only Ensure to put on my tray.  And I won't drink that.  We ALL have stories...heart patient served bacon and eggs after bypass surgery, etc.

*If you are a new addition to this email list, the menu is the attachment.  You are very welcome and encouraged to email me back with anything you'd like reserved for you.  I will have your selection ready, and you pay for your order when you pick up.

Thank you in advance, and thank you for having your order in by Thursday evening. It is our pleasure to provide healthy, "clean", plant based food for you, that is energizing and easy to digest.

And --
I hope everyone has their tax returns done (I do not!) 😁; at least we have until Monday 🤓.

In health,
