Support your #farmersmarkets - Local Harvest

What's in Season? Before visiting your local grocery store chain or farmer's market, go here first "What's in Season?". Knowing what's in season is best for your health and your pocket. Picking, purchasing and eating Fruits & Veggies out of season, well the taste isn't as fresh and the cost is higher than usual. 

Getting fruits and vegetables from your local farmer's market is a good way to ensure freshness plus you'll be supporting your local farmers - it's a win-win situation! You're even encouraged to participate in a CSA - Community Supported Agriculture program in which you pay for local and sometimes (depends on the farmer) organic foods. You can find out if there is a participating farmer near you at U.S. Local Harvest. 

Last month, I had the privilege of attending a Raw Foods meetup (Vegan). These kind of foods have more flavor for your taste buds then the food you eat on a regular basis - in my opinion and I'm not a vegan! In my next post, I'll share two of the raw food recipes that I enjoyed.
