This year is all about taking simple and affordable steps toward eating healthier. Well, this Zucchini Boats with Ground Beef Recipe is a delicious step in that direction.
I prefer to buy the vegetables at our local farmer’s market because even though their veggies aren’t “certified organic” they are very close. Every time I talk with my local farmers, it amazes me how difficult it is for the to qualify as “certified organic” and the extreme costs associated with it. If you haven’t been to your local farmer’s market…definitely give it a try!
