After a year of experimenting with locally-grown vegetables, I’ve expanded my collection and slightly altered the format.
This time, I calculated every possible combination of vegetables grown monthly in Galway, Ireland.
I paired 2 vegetables with potato and a selection of protein sources available in Galway – plant-based, egg, cheese and fish.
I calculated how much of each protein source, combined with potato, would be needed to provide 20g of protein (the optimal amount for muscle protein synthesis.)
I then indexed all the combinations per month, and in order of popularity (as roughly indicated by Google search results).
I also listed them in alphabetical order (for that day when you sleep in, arrive late to the market and all that’s left is Jerusalem artichoke and swede. This way you don’t need to think about how much protein and potato you need for your basic dietary requirements – just look it up!)
So now, with 181 different vegetable combinations, here’s “Speedy and Seasonal”… take 2! Tá súil agam go mbainfidh sibh tairbhe as seo!
