Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do-- subscribe to the newletter as I'll be sharing a bunch of delicious recipes, healthy ideas, family fun, and more!

    I love zucchini. In the summer I like to make fried zucchini but have not done so yet. The heat is so intense lately I don’t want to go to all that trouble ha ha! Yours is about my speed.

    Today I just threw some zucchini, onion and tomatoes in a crockpot with pork chops and hope it all turns out ok! 🙂
