Eat Local, Get Healthy
My IRL friend Donna, over at Simply Liv-N, has inspired me to watch Forks Over Knives and Food, Inc. Wow, I have been neglectful of paying attention to where my food is coming from! Be sure to check out her blog, she cans and cooks and is all about being a Godly wife, mom and friend.
After watching the movies, I have been doing some research and found this family who is doing the local food thing for a whole year! Check out Angie's and Eric's blog to follow their adventures in going local and getting healthy!
This winter we bought a quarter side of beef from our favorite Sherwood Acres Beef. The beef is awesome and. almost. gone. <sniff> I'm saving to buy more, because it is completely awesome meat. I'm looking into some local buying clubs for free range chickens and other local goodies.
Tonight I'm going to Whole Foods to stock up and tomorrow I'm heading over to St. Matthews Farmer's Market to buy some local produce!
Remember, you are what you eat, so eat healthy!
