D&R Greenway Hosts Healthy Habits, Healthy Eating Workshops with Princeton Farmers’ Market Creator Judith Robinson

09/10/2015

Princeton, N.J. – D&R Greenway Land Trust will host a series of workshops on healthy habits, healthy eating, with Princeton Farmers’ Market Founder Judith Robinson, 5-7 p.m., September 23, 30 and October 7, at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton. For each session, a one-day menu plan will be given to participants to begin the process of making choices. Each session ends with a fresh food tasting.

“This class offers a fun and personally rewarding way for people to participate in our mission,” says D&R Greenway President and CEO Linda Mead. “Getting people excited about eat healthy foods from local farms is another way to keep farms in our community.”

“The series of three two-hour sessions will lead to establishing new healthy and satisfying eating habits,” says Robinson, who had her first organic garden in 1974 and has been researching and teaching about healthy eating habits and organic growing ever since. In 2009 she created the flourishing Princeton Farmers’ Market. Her company, Our World Our Choices, combines her theater/film background and many years of environmental advocacy to produce videos about healthy living choices and environmental concerns.

“Create New Habits for Healthy Eating” is about how to weave healthy options into present habits of eating in a simple and delicious way. Learning the “how” and the “why” makes the transition easy and enjoyable.

In the first session, participants will discuss the benefits of new eating habits to health, relationships with food, healthy fats and carbohydrates, the role of natural sugars, choosing healthy snacks, pros and cons of buying organic and the impact of soil health on food health.

The second session will cover local resources including farmers markets and CSAs, cooking techniques and meal planning with simple and tasty recipes. There will be discussion of basic ingredients to have on hand, how to cook non-meat proteins, types of cookware best for health, ways to simplify your kitchen and which vegetables to include.

In the third and final session, challenges and solutions will be discussed, as well as how to be an improvisational cook, how to make favorite recipes healthier, freezing in-season fruits and produce, canning, translating ingredients of packaged foods, recommended food brands and supplements.

Each session includes a menu plan and ends with a fresh food tasting.

Cost for all three sessions is $75 and supports D&R Greenway's mission to preserve and care for land and inspire a conservation ethic, now and for the future.  Information and to register: 609-924-4646   www.drgreenway.org

Princeton Farmers Market

08/01/2011

Authors: Judith Robinson

what to do with fresh vegetables

Princeton Farmers Market

    The wet spring delayed the produce coming into our market and now we are brimming with bounty! Last night I gazed over the pile of vegetables that had gathered on my table and said to myself (and to my lackadaisical cats) --something has got to be done. For me being able to reach into my freezer in the middle of winter and bring out a container full of the fields of summer--is a thrill. Well--at least a loud murmur of a thrill!! So I decided to make:

    A pureed vegatable soup. Cover the bottom of a pot with olive oil and add a good amount of chopped onions and garlic. Cook till translucent--then add either homemade broth or bought vegetable or chicken broth (I use an organic brand), lots of sliced carrots, yellow zucchinis, potatoes, scallions with some of the green tops, and from my window boxes--parsley, oregano, thyme, and Thai basil (or regular).

    Simmer till done--add salt and mixed pepper. Ladle it into a blender---filling it only a third full, hold the top while you first pulse it and then puree it but leave some texture to it. Cool it down and then put into containers, label it (because deep into winter when you take it out--you will say "What IS this?)

    Then I made a ratatouille. I use my larger iron frying pan for this. Put some olive oil in a pan and saute lots of onions and chopped garlic. Add chunks of different varieties of eggplants, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers (I prefer red but green are good too), fresh parsley, oregano, red or green basil, thyme, and pepper. Cover and slowly simmer. When almost done I added uncooked corn which I had scraped from the cob. It adds a flavor which really compliments the eggplant. A little salt and serve. Cool and freeze the leftovers.

                                                                  Enjoy and there is more to come!!!  See you at our market on Thursdays!!!
