New Year, New You
Honest Plate, a healthy meal delivery service based in Riverhead with South Fork and North Fork pickup locations and delivery from Riverhead to Montauk and New York City, has new menu options for the new year.

The menu has Whole 30, plant-based, and gluten free options, and some are all three at once. Last week's protein options were pork ribs, beef and mushroom meatloaf, roasted fluke, and grilled salmon, all prepared to be Whole-30-compliant. Plant-based meals such as a tempeh stir-fry and tofu protein bowl with red kidney beans and broccoli were designed to offer a high protein content. There are kids' meals, salads, appetizers, sides, and dessert options as well. All items have a calorie and nutrition breakdown on the menu. David Burke, a noted New York City chef, also contributes weekly menu choices.

Ordering for the following week must be done by 10 p.m. on Thursdays. More information and current menus are on the meal service's website.

Cooking Clean on Zoom
Stefanie Sacks, a Montauk culinary nutritionist with a focus on eating to prevent and manage illness, is offering Come Cook live Zoom classes once a month this winter. January's class will be held on the 26th and is focused on detoxification with two recipes: a Go Green Smoothie and a Buddha Bowl. Additional classes will focus on clean eating and gut health. The hour-long classes are $25 and registration is available on Ms. Sacks's website.

Never Too Early for C.S.A.
Registration for Sylvester Manor's community sponsored agriculture summer program is now open.

For 21 weeks, the farm at Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island will offer fresh produce, eggs, bread, and pork. Members in the C.S.A. commit to purchasing a portion of the harvest at the beginning of the year to support the farm's expenses in exchange for weekly shares from mid-June to late October.

The farm said the shares are composed of what is in season that week and is picked within one or two days of distribution.

The produce C.S.A. is $598 for a selection of vegetables, flowers, and herbs. The weekly cost breaks down to around $28, with a potential value of the produce received estimated to be as much as $60 (last year's average value was $50). There are also bread shares for $150, egg shares for $168, and pork shares for $890, which can be added to the produce share or purchased alone. There is also a winter pork share from February through April for $481. The prices do not include credit card processing fees.

Those who prefer not having the commitment of a weekly C.S.A. can purchase $500 of credit worth a total of $550 at the farm stand. These credits can be used immediately after purchase beginning this month. Registration and purchase for all programs are available on the manor's website.
