Ten Trifecta Trifectas

fullsizeoutput_194d

About a year ago, I started getting a Weekly Harvest of greens and some other veggies from Trifecta Ecosystems, an aquaponic greenhouse in Meriden.  For example, I picked up my Weekly Harvest on Monday, which included: a mix of New Red Fire, Rouxai, and Magenta lettuces; a "super greens blend" of Pak Choi, kale, and amaranth; assorted bell peppers from JC Farm in Durham, CT; a large bouquet of rainbow Swiss chard and kale varieties; green beans, fresh peaches, and yellow squash from Gotta's Farm in Portland, CT; and an herb assortment, including Rosie basil, Italian large leaf basil, and dill.

The high quality greens in the Trifecta Weekly Harvest have changed my diet in a positive way, enabling me to make meals that are a trifecta...quick (made in 10 minutes or less), delicious and healthy.  Sometimes this might include a side of beans or rice, but often it was just a lean protein with dressed Trifecta greens, like the Arctic Char sautéd with butter. lemon and capers pictured above.  Below are nine other Trifecta Trifectas that I have made over the past year.  If these pictures pique your interest about Trifecta Ecosystems and you want to try out their Weekly Harvest, they are offering a free week to my friends.  Just go to:
