We are now in week 5 of my organic vegetable box delivery. Each week I do an unboxing video so you can see what I have to work with when I come up with the recipes I’m going to eat each week.
In the video you’ll see this weeks box had cucumber, zuchinni, a poblano chili, an unknown chili, parsely, spring greens, swiss chard, squash blossoms, and snow peas.
I gave away my snow peas. I’m tired of them after getting them 3 weeks in a row. This organic veggie box delivery is such a good deal that I don’t care if I don’t use it all.
I eat plenty of salads and I have more spring greens on my veggie pita at lunch.
My question in the organic box Facebook group wasn’t answered, so I stilldon’t know what the other chili is.
3 Healthy Vegetarian Recipes (Vegan Too)
Baked Zucchini Wedges
This quick and easy side dish recipe tastes really good. You can serve it as a snack or as a side with another main dish. Make sure you eat them while they are hot. This recipe calls for Parmesan cheese, so you can substitute a vegan cheese. I switched it to nutritional yeast, since I don’t have access to vegan cheese here in Cabo.
Unfortunately the squash blossoms didn’t make it. They were dead 2 days later. I was going to use them in a salad. Just chopped.

Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.
