Something we’ve grown increasingly more aware of as of late is the farming and growing practices used in for the food that lands in our kitchen each week. And not only that, but really trying to eliminate as much food waste as we can — did you know that up to 40% of ALL FOOD produced is wasted each year? FOURTY. PERCENT. That’s almost half!!!

We are by no means perfect at this. As I type this, I can think of some leftovers that are still in our fridge from dinner last week that we never got around to eating (or throwing away, for that matter haha).

So again, we are not perfect at reducing food waste. BUT, we are learning. And trying. And growing 🙂

So, when I went to the farmers market last week and grabbed a bunch of carrots, I opted to keep the greens attached to challenge myself to use them!

What I came up with? Chimichurri!!

Chimichurri is a savory herb sauce that can be used as a topping or as a dip — it goes great with red meat, chicken, fish, or some roasted root veggies like potatoes and carrots! It is usually made with either parsley, oregano and/or cilantro, but I subbed in the carrot greens in place of these. So certainly, if you get your carrots without the greens attached, you can still make this yummy recipe!

And, when I say this Chimichurri with Carrot Greens is simple and easy, I mean it!! All you do is combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until it reaches your desired consistency! We left our pretty chunky, but you can blend as smooth as you wish, and add in additional olive oil or splash of water to thin down the consistency a bit. Easy, peasy!

Pro tips to help you maximize your membership :)

Anticipate obstacles: obstacles are like red lights on the way to the store: an inevitable part of the journey. Anticipate them and don’t let them define your ability or stop you from trying.

Take action: you can absorb all the information and education you want, but that’s not what leads to change — taking ACTION is!! Regardless of the results, taking action helps you gain clarity to continue pressing forward. I know this can bring discomfort, but temporary discomfort is better than longterm discomfort. God is mighty in you — you GOT this! 

Ditch all or nothing thinking: we believe something is better than nothing and ANY effort counts. You don’t have to implement 100% of the content to see change and improvements in your health. Each action you take compounds. 40% effort is better than 0%

Ask questions: if you’re confused, not sure where to start, feeling behind, or just have a question for me or the group, ask it! Someone else probably has the same question, so by speaking up you’re getting the answer and helping someone else do the same.
