It’s not Halloween and you thought you were getting vegetables and fruit, so why is there blood in your box this week?
It’s the season for Spanish blood oranges! Make the most of it, the season isn’t long. Juice it for its delightful pink/red juice (great fun with the kids, who will be expecting orange juice to be orange!) Or now that you have gotten over your New Year hungover, knock it into a blood orange margarita.
And we also have sweet potatoes in the boxes this week, so check out these 25 healthy sweet potato recipes and Guardian’s 10 best sweet potato recipes, and enjoy these vitamin-packed, lower calories, higher fibre beauties!
Now for the perfect recipe for all those items in the standard box, check out the sweet potato, fennel and olive salad with crispy kale and quinoa. What a glorious start to the year!
