A Kid in the Candy Store
Tuesdays tend to be an exciting time in our household. I often feel like a kid in the candy store anticipating the arrival of my husband, at the end of the day, as he brings in his bags of goodness.
We belong to a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm Share for over a year now. Our farmers tend to their 80-acres using “organic practices to care for the soil, sustain the land, and produce good, healthy, and abundant food for those in the local community.” They also offer grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, free-range eggs, organic dairy and whole-bean coffee products as well. The fresh veggies change each week. Today, it’s important for us to know where and how our food is produced.
We really started to pay attention to what we were consuming after watching Dr. Terry Wahl’s Ted video regarding the benefits of healing with food for MS. We purchased her book, The Wahl’s Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles of Functional Medicine, and began to design our new food regimen. Stay tuned for more on this topic. It’s important to keep in mind, no diet has been proven to heal or cure diseases, like MS, but the benefits of good, healthy eating certainly can be substantial for overall health.
Each week our farmers post their newsletter sharing ventures on the farm and wonderful recipes for their share. Do you take advantage of your local CSA’s or farmer’s market? If not, check them out. You won’t be disappointed!
