I love it when the weather starts to warm up and our Bountiful Baskets get more abundant with fresh low glycemic fruits and vegetables! This week was a fabulous basket filled with pears, kiwi, apples, mango, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, butter leaf lettuce, and red potatoes. I'm hoping the mangoes and pears ripen up quickly so we can use them in delicious salad! This week, we're doing soups and salads and making extra so we can have leftovers for lunch. I have a very full week, so it will be nice to have lunch taken care of. The other thing I love about soups is that you really can make them at ANY time during the day! I'm hoping the lentil soup is a hit because I have TONS of lentils in my food storage and need more recipes. The only recipe i use lentils in is the Lentil Taco Salad recipe.
