I ran across this Farmer’s Fridge spot in the May 2015 Marie Claire and was super excited to see it – I had literally just been listening to a nutritionist on Sirius Doctor radio talking about glass-jar salads as something you can do for a Spring or Summer gathering (SUPER cute, and uber healthful idea!)
A lot of people have a tricky time finding healthful choices on the go, or run out of ideas about what to make – these adorable little mixes combine all sorts of good-for-you veggies and greens, berries and legumes, calcium, protein and healthy fats – awesome all around.
Farmer’s Fridge’s jars are super fun (yes, salads can be fun! 😀 ), they’re easy to make (if you can’t get to a location), easy to shake up and munch…and they look like live decor (I’m thinking of Takashimaya again.) The jars are free of BPA, which makes them even more awesome, and they are travel / office / lunch etc friendly.
There are a number of salad options (there are more, this is just a screen shot)…
And breakfast and snack options too (there are more, this is just a screen shot)… I like that some nutritional stats are provided, where possible, as well – I personally always like to note my macros and micros when I can, as it allows me to stay on track with my own goals and needs.
And, there is a section on protein… ❤ (Happy girl!!! Again, there are more than those shown below.) The packaging for all of these is simple and straightforward, which is also rather refreshing.
Farmer’s Fridge Kiosks are an ADORABLE idea (this veggieholic is DELIGHTED!) They aren’t in my area at all (if you are in Chicago, you lucked out!) but again, this is a really fun idea for home entertaining in the warmer months (or, really, whenever!)
Way to go, guys – what a fun and exciting way to offer healthy food selections to the community! (Fun for kids too! 🙂 )
