Lee Greens Turns 2!

This month Lee Greens celebrates its 2nd birthday!  We started back in May 2015 with the help of a loan from Growing Communities, they've mentored us through the process with their 20 years of experience delivering sustainable, seasonal veg in Hackney for over 20 years.
In our first week we packed just 18 bags and we are now consistently packing over 100 bags each week, delivering to 6 pick up locations around our borough of Lewisham. 

What's under the skin

2017-11-20What’s under that vegetable skin?  Vitamins and micro minerals!  I love the synergy of vegetables and fruit – that it’s possible and nutritionally perfect to eat the whole thing (there are some exceptions of course).  Vegetables store a lot of their vitamins and essential minerals in the skin or just under it.

Nourishing January

A new year, a new you!  But is the ‘January Detox’ the right approach to January? 
After an exciting and indulgent December we often like to ‘dry out, pull back, eat better and ‘detox’’.  So why is this so hard to stick to in January?  Because TIMING is spring-cleaning our systems. What can we do?

The Understated Cruciferous Cauliflower

Organic cauliflower comes into it’s own at this time of year, delicious as a side dish or a main, the humble cauliflower has many uses.  Not a colourful rainbow vegetable to look at, its easy to think it doesn’t have much to offer nutritionally.  But that’s not the case.  Nature has a way of packing vegetables full of the right nutrients at the right time of year.  Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C.  A serving contains nearly 80% of your recommended daily intake.
