There's a lot going on right now, so I thought I'd take some time to update on life's happenings and training too!
Tomorrow I will give my next "Food is Food" talk at work! This month we're discussing how to best utilize the bountiful harvest of summer, right now and throughout the winter months! The recipe demo is going to be cream of tomato soup, based off this recipe. It should be fun and I can't wait!
Do you have a local farmer's market? If so, have you ever taken advantage of it for your grocery shopping? If you have yet to visit a farmer's market this summer, don't worry, there's plenty of harvest yet to come throughout late summer and fall!
Shopping at the farmer's market can be somewhat intimidating if you've never done so before. How do you know which vendor is "best" or where the food actually comes from? Today I'm going to share a few tips to successfully tackle your local farmer's market to eat fresh, take advantage of local produce and live a little more sustainably.
Why Shop at a Farmer's Market ?
Produce at the farmer's market is picked at it's peak ripeness and travels less of a distance from the field to your plate: Often it's more affordable and tastes better too! Great price + great taste = more likely to eat more fruits and veggies = win-win situation.
