Questions:

How does the amount of fresh vegetables and fruit consumed this week compare to other weeks?  The amount is similar to most weeks, just different produce this week.

Do you see any advantages or drawbacks to purchasing fresh produce in bulk? It goes bad fast, it may cause you to overeat.

    Thanks for sharing all of these photos!
    Where did you find corn?
    The soup had a rather unusual combination of ingredients – did you make up the recipes? Did the flavor of the asparagus come through? It looks like there was corn on the wooden spoon, did you also add corn to the soup?
    Good points about the advantage/disadvantage of buying produce in bulk; however, when it comes to fresh vegetables (except potatoes, namely fries/chips) folks don’t generally overeat. 😉
