Sunday Farmers Market

I've gotten really lazy with my eating habits lately, too many carbs and too much dairy. One cannot sustain themself nutritionally on yogurt, cheese, pasta and bread. Fruits and veggies have been seriously lacking so I decided to go to the farmers market and come home with five different produce items. Part of the problem when I go to the farmers market is that I don't know what to do with most of what I see, and I don't have the time to spend preparing a lot of it. For example, I love beets but have no desire to spend the time preparing them.

I didn't get five produce items but feel good about what I did get. Sometimes I get overwhelmed when there so I started small. 
I'll be using the sweet potatoes to make fries this week and I ran across a way to try and get them crunchy that I'm excited to try.  The sugar snap peas have high hopes for being included in a recipe but will probably be eaten one by one. The nectarines need to ripen, and I think the almonds are going to work with me for snacking purposes.
If  you have any ideas for farmers market recipes I'd love to hear them!

I was scared of beets too, but they're actually really easy!! I got three at the farmers market last week and went back this week for six more. Much easier than you think! Enjoy your farmers market finds :)
