7 Tips To Mastering Your Local Farmer's Market

Not only is it fun to walk through colourful stalls of produce, flowers, and baked goods, it's a great way to support local farmers and stock up on wholesome ingredients. There always seems to be a new ingredient or product I haven't tried and I love getting to know the local vendors and businesses that work so hard to help us get fresh, delicious food on our plates! There really is nothing like fresh ingredients to really add that extra touch to a home cooked meal.

How To Make Prosciutto And Arugula Cauliflower-Crust Pizza

I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant to try this out. I wasn't totally confident it was going to turn out but I was pleasantly surprised! It holds together well and gives you a nice thin base to top however you please. I would avoid piling the toppings too high on this one as it isn't quite as durable as a regular grain based crust.

This Roasted Beet And Kale Salad Is Even Tastier The Next Day

One thing I love about kale salads is that you can make a big batch to have for leftovers, and even dress it and the leaves won't go soggy. The leaves are much tougher than other greens, so I actually often like kale salads even better in the following days once the dressing has really soaked in and marinated the leaves.
